Network selection is a critical task for mobile terminals moving in heterogeneous environment of next-generation wireless networks. Power consumption of mobile terminal is a matter of great concern in the present scenario for efficient network selection in integrated network of various wireless technologies. In this paper, multiple attributes decision-making-based dynamic network selection method PV–VPP is proposed by considering power consumption of mobile terminal at instantaneous battery level in heterogeneous networks.
