In this paper, the authors have a proposed a new method to select a network during vertical handoff to optimize different performance parameters such as number of handoff, throughput, power consumption etc. in heterogeneous wireless networks. In this paper, they have used the Multiple Optimization Problem (MOP) concept to represent multiple number of vertical handoff criteria which will select the best available network with optimized parameter values (such as latency of network should be minimum) in the heterogeneous wireless network. The formulated multiple objective functions are implemented using genetic algorithm. Then the problem is simulated using Matlab.
