To integrate GPRS and WLANs, we proposed a GPRS-WLAN Mobility Gateway (GWMG) which resides on the border of GPRS and WLAN systems. The design goal is to minimize the modifications in GPRS and WLANs as that both systems are widely available in the markets already. By deploying the GWMG, users can seamlessly roam between two systems. This paper presents the analytical models to quantify the performance of the design. Handoff latency and buffer size on GWMG are analyzed. The results show that the GWMG could achieve the design goal to effectively integrate GPRS and WLANs.
