This letter addresses the QoS issue of a RSVP flow during handoff events. For the QoS guarantee of real-time applications with RSVP reservation in All-IP wireless networks, mechanisms are required to minimize the resource reservation path changes and the packet loss resulting from handoff events. If the new RSVP reservation is made along the path via a new base station (BS) in advance for soft handoff, on-going RSVP flow session can be kept with the guaranteed QoS. Therefore, we propose a seamless switching scheme of RSVP branch path for soft handoff. We also show that this scheme could provide the QoS guarantee by adaptively adjusting the pilot signal threshold values for soft handoff.
