Abstract

This paper proposes an autonomic connection management mechanism for multi-homed mobile terminals. The knowledge repository and the case-based reasoning technique are used to enhance the autonomicity of the connection management. The multi-criteria handoff decision is the core of the mechanism. Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) and Simple Additive Weighting (SAW) are combined to make the handoff decision. Simulation results and performance analysis show that the proposed mechanism works well in the heterogeneous wireless access network environment.
