We study optimal user-network association in an integrated 802.11 WLAN and 3G-UMTS hybrid cell. Assuming saturated resource allocation on the downlink of WLAN and UMTS networks and a single QoS class of mobiles arriving at an average location in the hybrid cell, we formulate the problem with two different approaches: Global and Individual optimality. The Globally optimal association is formulated as an SMDP (Semi Markov Decision Process) connection routing decision problem where rewards… 
Network Controlled Joint Radio Resource Management for Heterogeneous Networks
TLDR
A study based on the Semi Markov Decision Process (SMDP) theory, it is shown how to obtain an optimal policy in radio resource management (RRM) for heterogeneous networks through a utility function accounting for user satisfaction.
A Distributed Algorithm for Fair and Efficient User-Network Association in Multi-Technology Wireless Networks
TLDR
A fully distributed algorithm based on trial and error mechanisms that exploits the benefits of vertical handover by finding fair and efficient assignment schemes that are efficient and fair in terms of throughput is designed.
SMDP approach for JRRM analysis in heterogeneous networks
TLDR
This paper considers a micro, pico or femto cell with two co-localized radio access technologies (RAT), e.g. WLAN and HSDPA and proposes a way of achieving optimality through a utility function accounting for user satisfaction and blocking.
A Network-Assisted Approach for RAT Selection in Heterogeneous Cellular Networks
TLDR
A network-assisted approach to optimal, learning-based, and heuristic policies, such as blocking probability and average throughput, and a reinforcement learning approach is introduced to derive what to signal to mobiles.
A Hybrid Approach for Radio Access Technology Selection in Heterogeneous Wireless Networks
TLDR
This paper tackles the radio access technology (RAT) selection, a key CRRM functionality, and proposes a hybrid decision framework that dynamically integrates operator objectives and user preferences that outperforms existing solutions and maximizes user utility.
Myopic versus clairvoyant admission policies in wireless networks
In this paper, we consider a dynamic scenario in which mobile users with elastic traffic arrive at a wireless heterogeneous system according to a Poisson arrival process. The wireless system consists

TLDR
The utility fair optimisation problem is non-convex but that a global optimum can be found by solving a sequence of convex optimisations in a distributed fashion and a principled approach to offload from LTE to 802.11 is proposed.
Radio access technology selection in heterogeneous networks
TLDR
This paper considers the downlink of a heterogeneous network with two broadband RATs: a primary RATsuch as LTE, and a secondary RAT such as WiFi, and formulates a centralized approach for the RAT selection as an optimization problem and proposes two distributed approaches.
Utility Fair Rate Allocation in LTE/802.11 Networks
TLDR
The utility fair optimization problem is non-convex but that a global optimum can be found by solving a sequence of convex optimizations in a distributed fashion and is a principled approach to offload from LTE to 802.11 and for exploiting LTE/802.11 path diversity to meet user traffic demands.
Efficiency or fairness: Managing applications with different delay sensitivities in heterogeneous wireless networks
TLDR
This paper considers a geographic area covered by two wireless networks, among which users choose based on a trade-off between the quality of service and the price to pay, and shows that when properly designed, the incentives elicit efficient user-network associations.
