Abstract
This paper proposes a novel multicast mobility solution aimed for mobile video, empowered by a cross-layer approach leveraging on the capabilities of Multicast Context Transfer and IEEE 802.21 Media-Independent Handover. The proposed solution was implemented and deployed in a real testbed, with results showing the significantly reduced latency for vertical handovers.
