Executive Summary

In this paper, the authors have presented an integrated architecture for seamless soft handoff in mobile ad hoc networks and demonstrated the good performance via showing that their handoff scheme can provide equivalent results as the benchmark with no handoff. In this position paper, they aim to investigate the general handoff problem in face of multiple heterogeneous wireless interfaces and non-trivial node mobility. This becomes ever important, since wireless heterogeneity will persist and nodes in military ad hoc networks are bound to move beyond rare-and-slow scenarios.
