Abstract

Heterogeneous multi-access networks pose new challenges for service development as supporting QoS-sensitive multimedia applications in such a dynamic environment requires additional mechanisms. The session continuity support mechanisms have to be designed so that they respect the existing communication principles. Only this way they can be sustainable solutions. This paper introduces a reference architecture and approach for multimedia services in heterogeneous multi-access networks. The proposed architecture encompasses the requirements set for the service by related domains, such as the Internet architecture. The reference architecture is validated with a session continuity example that follows a specific reference approach.
