IEEE 802.11 WLANs are increasingly used to support real-time services such as voice and video. Reliable portable operation, however, is often difficult due to factors such as imperfect customer access point (AP) installation, unpredictable WLAN coverage, and unexpected co-channel interferers. In this paper we propose and investigate the use of IEEE 802.11 ad hoc-assisted handoff (AAHO). In AAHO, a single additional ad hoc hop may he used by a mobile station (MS) to obtain the range extension or… CONTINUE READING
