With the growing use of multiradio mobile terminals a vertical handoff between different wireless access technologies is becoming increasingly common. The vertical hand-off may result in a significant change in the access link characteristics that can affect the performance of TCP dramatically as its behaviour depends on the end-to-end path properties that… CONTINUE READING
