In recent years, wireless networks have evolved tremendously especially in heterogeneous systems in order to effectively and efficiently support multiple access technologies. Heterogeneous networks will be paramount in the next generation wireless networks where devices are able to roam under various radio access technologies that lead to utilization of an IP-based core network. With the increasing accessibility and performance of different radio access technologies which are WiMAX (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access), Wi-Fi (Wireless Fidelity) and UMTS (Universal Mobile Telecommunications System) have stimulated the mobile users towards increased of utilization. In such network, it is imperative for handovers between networks in order to maintain the seamless connectivity and a satisfactory quality of service for mobile users. Therefore, providing the quality of service (QoS) and seamless handover processes is one of the major matters for real-time services. This paper proposes a unified handover scheme to reduce the latency period of vertical handover during the video transmission. The proposed scheme is evaluated based simulation work on the handover performance under real-time video streaming networks.
