It is expected that the next generation Internet architecture will support applications with different quality of service requirements, independently of whether their location is fixed or movable. However, enabling QoS in Internet is a tough challenge, and it gets even tougher when the mobile environment with its non-predictive characteristics is introduced. In this paper we propose a framework that will integrate various QoS architectures and mobility protocols and will offer the freedom to users to choose between different wireless and wired access technologies based on certain predefined criteria, e.g. based on QoS parameters.
