A Heterogeneous Network Sharing System Design Based on Portable Devices

Yu-Ching Lin,


The information and communication technologies (ICT) integrate different types of wireless communication technologies to provide IT-enabled services and applications. Different types of wireless communication technologies have different characteristics and are widely applied to our daily life. Our goal is to integrate the available wireless communication technologies to enhance seamless communication efficiency and increase resources utilization. We proposed a heterogeneous network management algorithm which includes roaming and sharing functions. The roaming function provides the multiple network resources and the predictable handover process in physical and media access control layers. The sharing function supports multiple network resource allocation and the service handover process in network and application layers. The simulation result also shows that the proposed scheme can increase the network bandwidth utilization effectively. The sharing system could be used in home, mobile and vehicular environments to realize ubiquitous social sharing networks.
