Heterogeneous networks allow mobile terminals to take advantage of complementary radio technologies for their concurrent connections. In this paper we propose a mechanism for automated radio access network selection with several novelties: It enables terminals to build prioritized lists of target access networks independently for each of their active(More)
Heterogeneous networks combine different access technologies. An important problem in such networks is the selection of the most suitable radio access network. To perform this task efficiently, a lot of information is required, such as signal strength, QoS, monetary cost, battery consumption, and user preferences. These are well known issues and a(More)
Modern mobile terminals giving access to multiple radio access technologies at the same time allow users to select specific technologies and/or different operators for their services. This calls for an automated radio access selection mechanism. In this paper we propose such a mechanism with several novelties: i) it enables terminals to build prioritized(More)
