France Telecom and Motorola Test Video Handovers between EDGE and WiFi

Researchers at France Telecom and Motorola have demonstrated a Network Controlled Seamless Mobility solution that permits video streaming applications to perform a seamless handover between EDGE and WiFi occurs at the optimized instant for the network operator and user. In this solution, the handover decision is managed with centralized information regarding radio link conditions, access networks load, application quality of service (QoS) needs, user preferences, and operator policies.

The project is a result of the partnership signed by companies in January 2005.
