Mobile user tracking and seamless service continuity in heterogeneous network environments represent an issue, especially when users move from outdoor to indoor environments, and vice versa. Mobile terminals with these properties allow providers to enable new services. In this paper, a location aware mobility-assisted technique for both indoor and outdoor environments is presented. The technique provides local positioning service and non-homogeneous connectivity management for UMTS, IEEE 802.11, and GPS networks.
