  • The satisfaction of a mobile user in a heterogeneous wireless environment relies heavily on the appropriate choice of network. [...] Key Method As opposed to other dynamic programming-based algorithms, this method does not require the knowledge of the statistics of the wireless environment, but learns an optimum policy by utilizing the mobile device's past experience. It is shown that the QoE results of the proposed Dynamic Handoff Decision (DHD) algorithm come very close to the performance of an optimum oracle…Expand Abstract
