In 4G networks, the meshing of WiMAX and WLAN has been a tough task. Issues regarding intermeshing of WIMAX and WLAN networks during vertical handoff have to be analyzed. Two interconnected networks such as WIMAX and WLAN has been proposed. The authors' proposed scheme provides better connectivity between fixed and mobile stations. In their proposed framework, two heterogeneous networks have been interconnected with each other and vertical handoff occurs between the two networks. A modified vertical handoff decision algorithm has been designed to calculate the bandwidth in WLAN and WIMAX networks.
