Next generation wireless networks will encompass a wide range of heterogeneous technologies in the radio access part. In such networks, the all-IP paradigm has been identified as a promising solution that will contribute benefits by providing IPbased transport through the radio and core network parts. However, this concept requires a precise management of the user's mobility, especially in order to preserve user's Quality of Service (QoS) throughout the session's lifetime. The aim of this paper
more » ... e aim of this paper is to evaluate the Quality of Experience (QoE) that users perceive when the different QoS-aware mobility management strategies adopted in the AROMA project are applied. A real-time testbed that provides end-to-edge QoS in all-IP heterogeneous wireless access networks has been employed to obtain QoE results that hardly could be obtained by means of simulations. Keywords -heterogeneous wireless access networks; mobility management evaluation; quality of experience; quality of service provisioning; real-time testbed. I.
