The handoff latency of many new access technologies such as wireless LAN devices is very large, on the order of hundreds of milliseconds. This results in significant performance degradation during handoff. In this document we propose an approach that uses multiple transceivers of the same access type to enable make-before-break handoffs. This approach eliminates latencies and packet loss during handoffs.
