Next-generation wireless network is striving to integrate different wireless access networks leading to a new concept called vertical handoff. Vertical handoff occurs when mobile node moves between different technology networks. Designing intelligent vertical handoff algorithm is a most critical challenge for next generation network. Towards this as a first step, IEEE 802.21 working group proposed a standard called Media Independent Handover (MIH). The IEEE 802.21 MIH is focused on handover facilitation between different wireless networks in heterogeneous environment regardless of the type of medium.
