Mobile communication is developing very rapidly with passage of time, new technologies are being introduced to facilitate the mobile users more from the technology. The past technologies are replaced by new ones and needs are growing for the new technologies to be developed.
One such development is fourth generation networks. Also called future generation or Next Generation Networks. The introduction of 4G has widened the scope of mobile communication. Now mobile is not only a device used for talking but its more or less a portable computer that can serve different purposes. 4G offers higher data rates with seamless roaming. The mobile user can communicate without any disturbance while switching his coverage network.
4G is still passing through research and therefore there are some problems that need to be fixed in order to benefit the users from it fully. In this report we discuss various challenges 4G is facing and solutions to those problems are discussed. We propose our own way of improving QoS in 4G by using combination of mobility protocol SMIP and SIP. We propose that by using such scheme we can achieve better QoS during the process of handover.
