 Abstract
It is expected that many heterogeneous wireless systems, such as 3GPP LTE systems, WiMAX systems and WLAN systems, will coexist in the next generation wireless communication environments. Integrated radio resource management and seamless vertical handoff (VHO) should be supported to provide integrated communication services over multi-radio access networks. A new class of adaptive VHO system that views the handoff problem as a pattern recognition problem is proposed. In this paper, we propose a unified radio resource management (URRM) architecture and Support Vector Machine (SVM) based vertical handoff decision system. Extensive simulation studies show the proposed VHO algorithm outperforms RSS based VHO algorithms in terms of throughput and service cost.
