Abstract: The vertical handover decision strategy is a challenging problem to support seamless mobility in different wireless technology. The handover decision process is reported to facilitate the required Quality of Service, but bad network selection and overload condition of the chosen network fallout in handover failures. Traditional handoff techniques typically are based on single parameter and are inefficient due to superfluous handovers. In addition, existing fuzzy based handoff method reduces the handover failures but increase the computational complexity. Furthermore, the existing mobile controlled handover techniques are not suitable for heterogeneous environment. Therefore this paper focus the need of efficient, robust and flexible vertical handover technique to reduce the handover failures and design an MADM based network controlled handover that maximize QoS in heterogeneous environment.
