Part of the SpringerBriefs in Electrical and Computer Engineering book series (BRIEFSELECTRIC)


The algorithms introduced in the last chapter use a single criterion to make RAT selection decisions. In this section, more complicated algorithms using a number of RAT selection criteria are discussed.
