In this paper, we propose a signaling protocol which can support QoS for multimedia applications continuously after handover of a mobile node in the network environment where IP-based wireless access networks co-exist. Since existing RSVP-based signaling protocols can cause the waste of network resources due to double reservation and do not provide fast resource reservation/release, they are not suitable for mobile networks. The proposed QoS signaling protocol can support QoS for multimedia applications using the fast reservation of necessary resources after handover and avoid the waste of resources by resolving the double reservation problem. This paper presents design and implementation architectures of the proposed signaling protocol and analyzes its performance via a physical testbed. Based on the analysis results, it was shown that the proposed protocol is able to support seamless QoS for multimedia applications.
