During the vertical handoff procedure, handoff decision is the most important step that affects the normal working of communication. An incorrect handoff decision or selection of a non-optimal network can result in undesirable effects such as higher costs, poor service experience, degrade the quality of service and even break off current communication. The objective of this paper is to determine the conditions under which vertical handoff should be performed in heterogeneous wireless networks. In this paper, we present a comprehensive analysis of different vertical handoff decision algorithms. To evaluate tradeoffs between their performance and efficiency, we propose two improved vertical handoff decision algorithm based on Markov Decision Process which are referred to as MDP-SAW and MDP-TOPSIS. The proposed mechanism assists the terminal in selecting the top candidate network and offer better available bandwidth so that user satisfaction is effectively maximized. In addition, our proposed method avoids unbeneficial handoffs in the wireless overlay networks. Copyright © 2011, Australian Computer Society, Inc.
