Abstract

Internet capable mobile or portable devices are already a modern commodity while it is becoming more and more common that such devices are hosts to more than one wireless network interface. The aim of this work is to show from a user’s perspective how such a portable device may make best use of this property by using multiple wireless and wired network interfaces simultaneously. This would incline that the intelligent control logic can distribute active flows across the available network interfaces and that it is also able to seamlessly transfer them between the network interfaces in mid-session without interruption. Focus of this work is on the inclusion of user preferences in the decision process, recognizing that future telecommunication systems may include also network conditions and operator preferences
