Abstract

With the accelerated proliferation wireless networks ranging from GPRS and EDGE to high speed networks such as HSPDA and Mobile Wi-Fi, network selection by mobile nodes will benefit more from knowledge of Network Capability of candidate networks. Network selection is important for handover in heterogeneous wireless environment. User Profiles/Needs and Network Capability will greatly influence the next logical step after network discovery, which is Network Selection. We examine the Dynamic Network Selection paradigm that uses User Profiling/needs to rank networks for selection and ignore networks with less capacity than required, using the Knapsack problem 0/1 Dynamic algorithm and the Knapsack problem Optimization Algorithm.
