Resumé: Mobile device usage has significantly changed in recent times and so has the type and amount of traffic in wireless access networks. Experts expect doubling of current traffic in the next couple of years, with a major portion for video traffic. On the other hand, limited radio capacity forces researchers to come up with solutions to deal with the increasing capacity demand. One such solution could be “multi-homing' for network operators to increase the available bandwidth provided to customers by aggregating the capacity of different available network interfaces. Mobile devices come with multiple network interfaces these days. Likewise, recent growth in wireless and cellular network providers has enabled mobile devices to exist in a geographical location which is being served by more than one type of access networks. This overlapping coverage, together with multiple interfaces available in modern mobile devices opens countless possibilities for better service in terms of bandwidth, reliability as well as mobility. In this context, a mobile terminal is said to be multi-homed if it is connected to more than one access network simultaneously. ‘Load - sharing’ in a multi-homed mobile terminal is defined as the distribution of outgoing data over a variety of available interfaces in order to achieve better network resource utilization, bandwidth as well as communication reliability. This distribution of outgoing data is achieved by ‘striping’ data packets onto different available paths.
