Next Generation Networks (3G & beyond) will support real-time multimedia applications through traditional wide-area networking concepts as well as hot-spot (WLAN) and ad hoc networking concepts. In order to fulfil the vision of Next Generation Networks a method of maintaining a real-time flow despite frequent topology changes and irregularity in user movement is required. Mobility Prediction has been identified as having applications in the areas of link availability estimation and pro-active routing in ad hoc networks. In this work we present an overview of current mobility prediction schemes that have been proposed. Simulation results are also presented.
