Heterogeneous access network(s) selection in multi-interface radio devices
—The advent of multi-interface smart radio devices brings the flexibility of simultaneous access to multiple heterogeneous access networks for making a significant improvement in network utilization by balancing network load and avoiding congestion. However, each heterogeneous access technology poses its own constraints in terms of data rate, coverage, availability, latency, packet loss rate, usage price etc. Thus, a novel selection mechanism must be devised to exploit the “best” available access network(s) to best serve the wireless users. Assuming users can ask for required amount of bandwidth from the ANs, we model the heterogeneous access network selection mechanism from a game theoretic perspective by formulating a user preference based utility expression. Then we find the optimal bandwidth demands and the number of packets to send via each of the selected AN for a radio node that maximizes its payoff. Theoretical analysis of the utility expression proves the existence of...
