Abstract

This work introduces a Hopfield Neural Network approach to network selection for multihomed hosts which considers a range of relevant network parameters including available radio access technologies and traffic types (VoIP, video streaming, Web browsing and FTP-based). Also proposed is a novel utility function that further improves network selection. Results show that, in terms of QoS, the allocation obtained using proposed algorithm outperforms other two reference allocation schemes under a range of different scenarios.
