ABSTRACT Network selection is one of the key issues in heterogeneous wireless networks. However, very few efforts have been made on both algorithm and management of network selection to satisfy the individual requirements of every single user, so as to attract customers in the future user centric business mode. This paper takes the following steps toward addressing this problem: 1) a novel user preference oriented network selection algorithm (UPNS) is proposed, by combining entropy theory and fuzzy analytic hierarchy process algorithm (FAHP); 2) a service level agreement (SLA) management model is designed for network selection control in heterogeneous wireless environment, mainly including the general function descriptions and a management model instance based on UPNS. Application scenario of the UPNS based instance is simulated. Results show its efficiency in satisfying users' individuality and maintaining user satisfaction.

    ABSTRACT: Coexistence of different wireless networks is a common phenomenon in today's smart communication infrastructure. Now, the big issue is to explore benefits from the heterogeneous nature of communication technology. Load balancing among the heterogeneous wireless networks is the primary goal of this paper. Load balancing without considering Quality of Service (QoS) merely inadequate in convergence of resource utilization and grade of service. So, this paper proposed a load balancing algorithm with QoS provisioning. This paper is based on a semi-distributed load balancing architecture. Firstly, IP-flow dividing ratio based soft load balancing approach is discussed for high speed features of next generation wireless networks. Secondly, an admission control function of QoS requirements is developed. Thirdly, a joint optimization function is derived and a load balancing algorithm is proposed by using the cost function. Finally, simulation results are presented for performance appraisal.

    ABSTRACT: The access network selection is important for the service delivery in a heterogeneous wireless environment. On the other hand, network coding can improve the transmission efficiency of wireless broadcasting. In this paper, we propose a network selection approach in the heterogeneous wireless broadcasting environment, whose key ideas are to combine the network selection with network coding and achieve a fast selection. Both theoretical analysis and simulation results show that the performance of our proposed approach is very close to the optimal approach based on network coding, but much faster. And our approach has a higher transmission rate compared with existing approaches.

    ABSTRACT: The Long Term Evolution (LTE) has been proposed for supporting higher bandwidth applications and large amount of users by installing many base stations known as eNodeBs. However, in an area, users may associate with some particular eNodeBs which may cause the unbalanced load distribution. In this paper, a heuristic load balance algorithm called Ripple Algorithm has been proposed. The algorithm is designed as a distributed algorithm without global knowledge assumption. The results show that the algorithm can perform well in many testing scenarios with low complexity.
