Access Point Selection for Hybrid Li-Fi and Wi-Fi Networks

Rahul Jaiswal, Pavan Kumar


Hybrid light fidelity (Li-Fi) and wireless fidelity (Wi-Fi) networks are an emerging technology for future indoor wireless communications. This hybrid network combines the high-speed data transmission offered by visible light communication and the ubiquitous coverage of radio-frequency techniques. While a hybrid network can improve the system throughput and users' experience, it also challenges the process of access point selection (APS) due to the mixture of heterogeneous access points. In this paper, the differences between homogeneous and heterogeneous networks regarding APS are discussed, and a two-stage APS method is proposed for hybrid Li-Fi/Wi-Fi networks.
