Summary

Chapter 12 covers mobility-support ATM switches. It first gives an overview of various reference configurations for wireless ATM networks, wireless-specific protocol layers, and handoff and rerouting schemes. It then describes a mobility-support ATM switch architecture that can prevent cell loss or out of sequence during handoff.
