Next-generation wireless network standards are currently being defined. The access network architectures have several specialized components tailored for their respective wireless link technologies, even though the services provided by these different wireless networks are fairly similar. We propose a homogeneous IP-based network as a common access network for the different wireless technologies. The IP-based access network uses the Internet standard, Mobile IP, to support macro-mobility of mobile hosts, and HAWAII to support micro-mobility and paging functionality of current wireless networks. We also illustrate how the proposed IP-based solution can interwork with existing infrastructure so that deployment can be incremental
