Heterogeneous wireless network, Fuzzy logic, Fuzzification
Vertical handoff is the basic requirement of the convergence of different access technologies. It is also the key characteristic and technology of overlay wireless network with appropriate network interfaces. The integration of diverse but complementary cellular and wireless technologies in the next generation wireless networks requires the design of intelligent vertical handoff decision algorithms to enable mobile users equipped with contemporary multi-interfaced mobile terminals to seamlessly switch network access and experience uninterrupted service continuity anywhere and anytime. Most existing vertical handoff decision strategies are designed to meet individual needs that may not achieve a good system performance. In this paper an intelligent approach is used for vertical handover decision. The intelligence is based on the fuzzy logic approach. So here, fuzzy logic is used for network selection and decision making for vertical handover.
