Next generation wireless communications will likely rely on integrated networks consisting of multiple wireless technologies. Hybrid networks based, for instance, on systems such as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi technologies can combine their respective advantages on coverage and data rates. In such environment, Wi-Fi/Bluetooth should seamlessly switch from one network to another, in order to obtain improved performance or at least to maintain a continuous wireless connection. This paper proposes a new user algorithm for handover between Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, which combines a trigger to continuously maintain the connection and another one to maximize the user throughput.
