In this paper, we investigate the issue of extending ATM technology to wireless networks. The PVC(Permanent Virtual Connection)-based handoff scheme is proposed to support - " the integration of the wireless and wireline networks. Without re-establishing procedure, a mobile connection can be handed over to a new base station through PVC which are reserved for handoff between neighboring mobility-enhanced ATM switches being connected to BS(Base Station)s. Therefore, this scheme can readily support a high speed of handoff connection processing mechanism utilizing wired link resources effectively. A simple an" alytical methodology is presented for overall system organization and for demonstrating the effectiveness of the proposed scheme.
