As the technology is advancing, heterogeneous wireless networks are becoming more dominant; therefore the integration
and interchangeability of various wireless access networks need to be addressed. Adhocs networks are collaborated
with WLAN and WI-MAX architecture to create an economically viable solution for wide deployment of high speed,
scalable and ubiquitous wireless Internet services. The proposition is to design an inter-working architecture of
wireless mesh with horizontal handover. In today’s distributed environment and changing technologies, there are
certain issues; which need to be taken care of viz.-a-viz. operability of 4G+ devices and its incompatibility, requirement
for the handover of devices with different architectures, challenges of adhoc networks and its solutions. Simulation
results demonstrate the performance of the handover using metrics like throughput, average End-to-End delay and
average jitter for uni-cast transmission. Comparative analysis is made for homogeneous architecture using different
protocols to understand the requirement of mobility and handover.
