Abstract: Growing consumer demands for access of communication services in a ubiquitous environment is a driving force behind the development of new technologies. The rapid development in communication technology permits the end users to access heterogeneous wireless networks to utilize the swerve range of data rate service “anywhere any time”. These forces to technology developers to integrate different wireless access technologies which is known as fourth generation (4G). It is become possible to reduce the size of mobile nodes (MNs) with manifold network interfaces and development in IP-based applications. 4G mobile/wireless computing and communication heterogeneous environment consist of various access technologies that differ in bandwidth, network conditions, service type, latency and cost. A major challenge of the 4G wireless network is seamless vertical handoff across the heterogeneous wireless access network as the users are roaming in the heterogeneous wireless network environment. Today communication devices are portable and equipped with manifold interfaces and are capable to roam seamlessly among the various access technology networks for maintaining the network connectivity, since no single-interface technology provides ubiquitous coverage and quality-of-service (QoS). This paper reports a mobile agent based heterogeneous wireless network management system. In this system agent’s decision focuses on multi parameter system (MPS). This system works on the parameters- network delay, received signal strength, network latency and study of the collected information about adjoining network cells viz., accessible channel. System is simulated and a comparative study is also made. From results it is observed that system improves the performance of wireless network.
