Abstract
Abstract: IEEE has introduced a standard on vertical handover known as Media Independent Handover (IEEE 802.21 MIH) which aims to achieve end user mobility by assisting the vertical handover across heterogeneous wireless technologies thus improving end user experience. However, the current MIH standard lacks context-aware architecture which is needed to adapt to the changing network dynamics and mechanisms to distribute load uniformly in the network. In this paper, we propose an enhanced architecture to IEEE ...
