Decision making is the hot topic in business management. Recently, there have been investigations in Call Admission Control (CAC) to handle the handover events in wireless network environments. Wireless networks have been seen to support different handoff mechanisms, in which the user can switch from one wireless network to another such as from IEEE 802.11 to IEEE 802.16. Many wireless standards, such as IEEE 802.16e and IEEE 802.11, have been proposed to satisfy diverse requirements for mobile users.. Several strategies have been proposed to realize seamless handoff in the heterogeneous networks; in this paper, we analyze the performance of some novel intelligent handoff mechanisms with multiple attributes. The mobile set dynamically selects the optimal network and provides the user with high throughput of Quality of Service (QoS) as to minimize the blocking probability of the system in heterogeneous networks. We evaluate some intelligent handoff mechanisms such as Technique for Order Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solutions (TOPOSIS), Simple Additive Weight (SAW), Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) and Fuzzy Logic and Grey Relational Analysis (GRA). From the results, blocking probability and dropping rate can be referenced to support better QoS.
