  • In this paper, we consider the interworking between multiple wireless access networks and study the multihomed users’ performance for different fourth-generation (4G)/WiFi multihoming techniques. We specifically compare two points of view for multihoming: network centric—wherein the scheduler is controlled by the network—versus user centric—where each user chooses a splitting policy for its packets. In the former, we study two proportional fairness strategies: a global one applied to the whole… CONTINUE READING
