Abstract: In this paper, a novel cross-layer handoff approach is proposed based on the emerging integration of Ethernet Passive Optical Networks (EPON) and WiMAX. Users suffer long handoff latency and great loss of packets caused by the frequently movement, which is unacceptable for the broadband and real-time service like IPTV. The goal of new handoff approach is to minimize the negative effect caused by handoff. Considering the ability of convergence, universal scheduling and dynamic bandwidth allocation (DBA) of EPO…
