We have recently introduced in the literature MI-MAC (Multimedia Integration Multiple Access Control), a new access control protocol for next generation wireless cellular networks which showed superior performance in comparison to other (TDMA and WCDMA-based) protocols when integrating various types of multimedia traffic. In this work, which to the best of our knowledge is one of the first in the literature to study the integration of H.264 streams with other types of multimedia traffic, we continue our work on MI-MAC. We evaluate the protocol's ability to efficiently integrate streams from latest technology video encoders with other types of packet traffic over noisy wireless networks, especially in the case of significant handoff loads. We also discuss the differences between accommodating video traffic from previous technology encoders and H.264.
