Currently, single wireless network technology can not satisfy all of the requirements of mobile users at anywhere and anytime. Due to such requirements as QoS provision, cost efficiency, mobility, and etc. integration of different wireless technologies is necessary and there is, in turn, an urgent demand to develop vertical handoff approaches that enable mobile terminals to seamlessly roam between wireless networks overlap with each other. In the quest for efficient handoff especially in the heterogeneous environment, various handoff decision making techniques have been proposed in the literature.
