Recently, mobile communications need to benefit a good level of Quality of Service (QoS), since communications guarantees are mandatory during active flows. Passive resources are used to ensure service continuity when mobile hosts are moving among different coverage cells. In this work the attention is focused on wireless services in cellular networks, where the hand-over effects need to be mitigated, through an appropriate reservation policy. The whole considered system is modeled through a distributed set of Hidden Markov Chains (HMC) and the related theory is used to design a mobility predictor, as the main component of the proposed idea, which does not depend on the considered transmission technology (GSM, UMTS, WLAN, etc.), mobility model or vehicular scenario (urban, suburban, etc.). MRSVP has been used in order to realize the active/passive bandwidth reservation in the considered network topology and many simulation campaigns have been carried out in order to estimate the correctness of the proposed algorithm, also in terms of CDP and CBP.
