This letter proposes a vertical handoff scheme for integrated WLAN and UMTS that use the mobile Internet Protocol (IP) to reduce the packet loss caused by the ping-pong effect for high mobility users. The simulation results show that the proposed scheme efficiently increases the throughput of high mobility users.
