We study in this paper whether mobility can be supported by the 802.16d network without any change in the specification. Mobility capability involves two main issues: connection handoff and correct reception for moving terminals. We find that seamless connection handoff can be achieved within the 802.16d standard by: 1) applying some of the existing functionalities defined for the terminal initialization process; 2) devising a set of protocols for message exchanges for handoff; and 3… CONTINUE READING
