Vertical handoff in next generation heterogeneous wireless networks is a multi-dimensional issue. In this article we propose a multi-dimensional adaptive SINR based vertical handoff algorithm (MASVH) which uses the combined effects of SINR, user required bandwidth, user traffic cost and utilization from participating access networks to make handoff decisions for multi-attribute QoS consideration. Simulation results confirm that the new MASVH algorithm improves the system performance in terms of higher throughput and lower dropping probability, as well as reduces the user traffic cost for accessing the integrated wireless networks.
