In the next generation heterogeneous wireless networks, a user with a multi-interface terminal may have network access from different service providers using various technologies. Vertical Handover (VHO) is the capability to switch on-going connections from one Radio Access Network (RAN) to another. This switching is based on the discovered accesses, QoS constraints, operator policies, user preferences and available system capacity and utilization. Optimizing the VHO process is an important… CONTINUE READING
