In future wireless and/or mobile networks, voice, highcapacity data, and multimedia contents might be converged onto a single wireless network platform, which leads to increased complexity and heterogeneity. To realize such advanced communications, it is necessary to consider users' QoS requirements. In our related work, we proposed a novel QoS framework based on cross-layer design that is jointly optimized among all layers. In this paper, we propose a detailed protocol scheme, that is, a management scheme of users' QoS requirements for wireless heterogeneous network. Moreover, we reveal the effectiveness of our framework.
