AbstractNext-generation of the mobile communication, network services allow users to move in freedom while accessing the Internet and network applications with seamless communication through the different wireless networks technologies. Integrating different system networks is called vertical handover which is critically a challenging task using the traditional decision algorithm for the next-generation networks. In this study, we proposed a simulation result of performance quality of service (QoS) of the vertical handover in vehicle-to- Infrastructure (V2I) on Road-Side Unit (RSU) between Wifi, WiMAX, and LTE networks using IEEE 802.21 Media Independent Handover (MIH) standard. The simulation is carried out using the NS-2 simulator and the VanetMobiSim traffic generator for the IEEE 802.21 MIH standard. The results show the performance analysis of IEEE 802.21 MIH in terms of handover latency, throughput, end-to-end delay and packet loss. Hence, this study will help and guide the Intelligent Transport System (ITS) and Telecommunication System (Telcos) provider in Malaysia to cater the problems of internet services by increasing the QoS of networks for the user's convenience.
