This paper focuses on the concept of the seamless mobility (provided by vertical handover mechanisms) in heterogeneous Future Internet Networks in the context of the HURRICANE project. We discuss future open collaborative network architectures and propose a set of entities that ensure seamless mobility and service continuity, from infrastructural/operational and business standpoints: an 802.21-like implementation of vertical handover, supported by an innovative business modelling software package, which replaces the traditional operations support stack with a more dynamic, marketplace-oriented system. We also discuss, an approach to distributed, policy-based, vertical handover management and a model for such policies, based on the monitorization and analysis of Call Detail Records that reveals users’ behavioural patterns and allows personalization.
