Vol. 11  No. 8  pp. 41-50


This article analyzes the performance of vertical handover between UMTS and WiMAX networks by defining development architecture for supporting mobility between these two technologies. First, architectures and principles of operation of networks UMTS and WiMAX are detailed and compared. Then the main protocols of mobility are considered as support of handover between UMTS and WiMAX (802.16). Finally, simulation architecture is presented followed by performance analysis modelled by the simulator NS2 in the context of connection-oriented communication.
