As host mobility and radio interference in wireless networks cause packet losses and delays, it is difficult to develop useful mobile real-time media applications. This paper describes a new handover strategy for end-to-end mobility called Competition based Soft Handover Management (CSHM). During a handover, redundant packet streams are sent through multiple connections which are later merged into one stream when received by the other end-point. As each network connection competes with other connections in contributing to the merged packet stream, the handover process can be viewed as a competition. As a proof of concept, CSHM has been implemented in Resilient Mobile Socket, RMS, an application-layer mobility scheme and used together with Marratech Pro, which is a commercially available e-meeting application. By using this prototype, the paper shows that it is possible to minimize redundant packets as well as decrease packet losses during handovers.
