Abstract

Vehicular ad hoc networks represent one of the most important applications of wireless ad hoc networks. In highways, where different networks exist, frequent and sometimes unnecessary switches from one network to another may occur, which degrade network performance and affect applications, especially those that require high quality networks such as multimedia applications (Video conferencing, Video On-Demand, etc.). This work presents an analytical model and a Vertical Handover decision method for Highways called VHH. It is based on position, velocity, jitter, and density as mandatory inputs which aim to both minimize Vertical handover frequency and avoid unnecessary handoffs and ping pong effect between different networks, in the goal of enhancing multimedia streaming services in highways. A simulation is provided to prove the performance of the algorithm.
