As technologies for the high quality multimedia application and 4G WiMAX network prevail, one can easily be under services everywhere through WiMAX wireless network. However, the Service Disruption Time (SDT) caused by handover procedure leads to an unacceptable Quality of Service (QoS) for mobile users, especially in IEEE 802.16j Mobile Relay Station (MRS) mode. Therefore, the authors proposed a Host-Based Fast Mobility Scheme (HFMS) in IEEE 802.16j MRS mode to reduce the SDT and solve the packet loss problem during handover via the cooperation between the MRS's link-layer and Mobile Station's (MS's) IP layer.
