In a multi-access/service IEEE 802.11 environment, the problem of providing users with service-related information to support a correct and fast network selection is expected to become a very important issue. We present a quantitative comparison between the legacy scenario, where each user must enter a network point of access to check its service offer, and the enhanced scenario where some service-related information is broadcasted through beacons. Results confirm the effectiveness of the beacon-based approach, in terms of discovery time, server load, and bandwidth consumption
