Performance evaluation of user centric multihoming strategies in LTE/WiFi networks

Abstract : This paper presents an analytical performance evaluation framework for 4G/WiFi multihoming techniques. Several multihoming flavors have been compared, with a focus on user centric allocation strategies. In these strategies the user splits his packets between two radio interfaces following a policy that depends on the amount of information he gets. First, the simplest policy is considered in which the user sends an amount of traffic on each interface proportional to the latter's peak rate. Second, the optimal selfish policy is investigated in which the user has complete information about the traffic intensities. This latter policy has been proved to achieves a global optimum. The numerical results show that an optimized user centric policy achieves good gains for both the system capacity and the user throughput compared to a peak maximization strategy. The results also show that multihoming provides large performance gains for multi-homed users while degrading neither the capacity of the system nor the performance of single-homed users
