Multi layer rules based framework for vertical handoff
— Seamless interoperability between two dissimilar networks require handoff from one network to the other. Such handoffs are known as vertical handoffs. Vertical handoff introduces a shift in the approach to handoffs. It deals with handoffs between dissimilar networks, such as from an access point to a base station or vice versa. A horizontal handoff, on the other hand, involves the scenario wherein the handoff is within the same network such as handoffs between cells. Most of the existing research proposes to implement vertical handoff on an overlay network, wherein a user moves from one geographic location to another, such as moving from a WLAN coverage area to a cellular coverage area, or vice versa. This research discusses the need to trigger a vertical handoff based on changes in the mobile environment independent of geographic changes of a user. We develop a novel framework that executes vertical handoff based on a multilayer approach coupled together with adjunct information s...
