This paper develops a feasible architecture for end-to-end QoS management over B3G networks where multiple heterogeneous radio access networks (RAN) can be coordinated at radio level by means of supporting common radio resource management (CRRM) functionalities. The presented approach is claimed to be innovative as long as it is inspired in the most relevant trends being developed in different fields and forums and come up with a global solution capturing such partial concepts. A key point of the architecture is the introduction of a wireless QoS broker entity that becomes the link between CRRM and E2E QoS management. In the paper, after introducing the proposed QoS framework, the signaling and procedures to support such architecture in the B3G network are addressed. Over such a basis, a connection establishment procedure is discussed to show how the problem of initial RAN selection can be managed by the proposed architecture.
