As demand for networked multimedia applications is increasing rapidly, it is important to provide these services in mobile communication environments. In this paper, we identify system requirements for base stations in order to support multimedia services. These requirements include supporting concurrent connections for multiple users, allocation of resources dynamically to satisfy diverse resource requirements for multimedia applications, and reallocation of resources during handoff incurred by user movement or newly generated calls. These requirements can be used to design an interface between land-based and mobile environments to handle one of the most challenging issues in multimedia communication: enforcing interstream and intrastream synchronizations. We propose two quality of presentation (QOP) parameters for evaluating the quality of mobile multimedia connections, and analyze the validity of these requirements
