A Survey of the Key Technologies of Heterogeneous Wireless Converged Network
Abstract— Heterogeneous Wireless Converged Networks (HWCN) are expected to be the trends of
next generation wireless network. It will pose great impacts on way of communication. HWCN is a
brand new research area and many problems still need to be solved. Firstly, the background and
development of HWCN are summarized, and its challenges and analyzed. Then from the perspective
of network architecture, access selection algorithms, resource management algorithms and vertical
handover strategies are discussed. Finally, the next step research suggestions of load balancing, green
communications and intelligent characteristics are also proposed.
Index Terms— heterogeneous; converged networks; resource management; vertical handover;
