Abstract-Due to the complementary nature of radio and optical wireless (OW) both in capacity and coverage, the combined use of both for data transmission could have advantages over a single media. However, big technical challenges for vertical-handover (VHO) strategy arise for such an integrated system. According to different interruption types and traffic modes, two basic VHO schemes can be applied: immediate VHO (I-VHO) and dwell VHO (D-VHO). This paper proposes a novel fuzzy-logic (FL)-based… CONTINUE READING
