In this paper, a centralized connectivity management platform for Wi-Fi Offloading in heterogeneous wireless networks is developed. To enable this platform, several attributes, such as users' connection details, terminal status and channel utilization, are periodically collected from terminals and network infrastructure, and sent to a remote server called SHARING Server. The server runs a multiple attribute decision making algorithm and the decision on the best access network connection is sent… CONTINUE READING
