The wide acceptance of ATM (asynchronous transfer mode) as a backbone technology in both LAN and WAN environments and the demand of mobile computing with QoS supports have led to the deployment of mobile wireless networks with ATM cores. This paper presents the architecture, implementation and performance evaluation of a mobile-enabled hybrid ATM backbone wireless network. In this architecture, software switching is used to create separate control channels for supporting mobility and QoS. Common applications such as Telnet, Netscape, and MPEG video have been successfully tested in this prototype. Test performance shows that the proposed architecture has acceptable handover latency and location management cost
