Heterogeneous wireless systems are characterized by the physical coexistence of a variety of radio access technologies with different, but also complementary, technical characteristics and performance. A key aspect of heterogeneous systems is then the implementation of efficient joint radio resource management mechanisms. In this context, this paper presents and evaluates novel joint radio resource management techniques based on the CEA bankruptcy distribution rule. The proposed policies base their distribution decisions on the system conditions and the varying quality of service requirements present in multimedia scenarios. The obtained results demonstrate that the proposed policies can efficiently distribute the radio resources with a low computational cost.
