Abstract

Heterogeneous networks are environments where networks having different topologies and technologies can be connected. In an environment including more than one heterogeneous access network, selection of a bad network may lead to emergence of negative results such as high cost and poor service experience for the users. Ensuring the use of the most effective access network for the personal needs of individuals is a complex decision-making process. In the present study, a multicriteria decision-making system employing fuzzy logic was developed to evaluate and select network service providers in Turkey. Fuzzy logic was used for the criteria containing uncertain and unclear information. Parameter values of the candidate networks obtained from the real world were evaluated by using Fuzzy Analytic Hierarchy Process method and then results were discussed.
