Abstract:The wide proliferation of wireless systems and the use of software radio technologies enables the employment of a heterogeneous network. In this concept services are delivered via the network that is most efficient for that service. Our solution is based on a common core network that interconnects access points of various wireless access points. A mobile host can apply multiple different access networks simultaneously to increase capacity or efficiency. Furthermore, a basic access network, separated from other wireless access networks, is used as a means for wireless system discovery, signaling and paging. Quality of Service is of prominent importance due to the heterogeneous environment and the characteristics of
the wireless channel. This paper describes the concepts of our architecture, and presents an overview of the architecture.
