This paper describes a new architecture for mobility management in next generation networks. The proposed architecture aims to offer mobile users, roaming in next generation networks service continuity without QoS degradation. This is based on the proposed Inter-Domain Management module IDM responsible of guiding the vertical handover to WiMax network capable of offering the user the same QoS and context parameters. The mobility management is based on fast MIP handovers coupled with the Context Transfer Protocol CTP
- vertical handover
- Stand-by IDM
