Handoff latency is a severe bottleneck impacting the service continuity for voice and multimedia applications in WLAN. IEEE 802.11k neighbor report defines the neighbor APs which are potential transition candidates for the roaming target. But the selection method for the roaming target AP is left undefined. Several schemes have been proposed for fast handoff with neighbor APpsilas information. However, these schemes result in huge redundant transition messages overheads in the WLAN and require… CONTINUE READING
