Abstract: The forthcoming wireless networks provide the continuous services to their users for different applications by the integration of diverse wireless access technologies known as heterogeneous wireless network. The heterogeneous wireless network improves the Quality of Service for stationary and non-stationary mobile users. Even when users are in mobility the services are provided by means of handoff or handover. In this paper, the integration of three different wireless networks such as LTE, WiMAX and Wi-Fi networks and their vertical handoff performance analysis are presented. These diverse wireless networks which are considered for integration are modeled as a heterogeneous wireless network. This network is designed using QualNet simulator. Furthermore, the designed heterogeneous network, vertical handoff performance is estimated by using factors such as throughput, jitter and End to End delay. With these performance factors, the designed network’s Quality of Service (QoS) is estimated under mobility conditions.

Keywords: LTE, Quality of Service, Vertical Handoff, WiMAX.
