In this paper we discuss a methodology for performance evaluation of the solutions for vertical handovers between different wireless access technologies in IP network. The performance evaluation is based on simple analytical models and covers both the ideal case (no packet loss) and the real case where there is a given packet loss rate. The methodology is applied to a comparison among three solutions, namely MIPv4, classical SIP mobility management using re-INVITE messages and a SIP based
