A Location-Aware Vertical Handoff Algorithm for Hybrid Networks

One of the main objectives of wireless networking is to provide mobile users with a robust connection to different networks so that they can move freely between heterogeneous networks while running their computing applications with no interruption. Horizontal handoff, or generally speaking handoff, is a process which maintains a mobile user's active connection as it moves within a wireless network, whereas Vertical HandOff (VHO) refers to handover between different types of networks or different network layers.
