This section focuses on the actual mechanism for implementing handoff of a host from one switch to another at each layer. This will affect ATM cell ordering, routing, and signaling.

An attempt to solve this leads to the development of Virtual Network Configuration (VNC). VNC is an algorithm for quickly and dynamically configuring the RDRN network. The primary benefit is rapid configuration of all mobile network layers based on predicted location by caching results ahead of time.
