Abstract: Future Wireless Networks (FWNs) are expected to be a convergence of different kinds of wireless technologies, such as cellular technologies, wireless local area networks (WLANs), wireless metropolitan area networks, wireless sensor networks, and traditional wired networks. Although users and/or customers will be oblivious to the specific underlying network being used by their applications, the networks should be able to provide the resource (bandwidth) with guaranteed quality of service (QoS). The users should be able to move seamlessly among different networking technologies, e.g., among Ethernet, WLANs, WiMAX, and 2G/3G/4G, with stringent QoS requirements. A challenge of FWNs is also to optimize the dynamic selection of the best, or N best, interfaces of multi-interface devices, in accordance with user and device constraints, such as power consumption, user charges, and application specific QoS requirements (e.g., delay, delay jitter, and throughput). Another challenge is the scalability of handling the communication of billions of mobile devices in the united ubiquitous networ
