Multi-Attribute Network Selection Scheme Using Analytic Hierarchy Processing and Entropy Weighting in Heterogeneous Wireless Network
Seamless session continuity is the main objective in heterogeneous wireless network. To fulfil this need seamless session continuity IEEE proposed 802.21 media independent handover framework. Scope 802.21 is only to initiate and execute the handover process, but it does not give any perspective about network selection problem. In this paper, the authors blend two different multi-attribute decision making schemes Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) and Entropy Weighting (EW) to select best network among the available networks. They mainly concentrated to network selection phase to reduce processing delay during handover.
