In an integrated wireless and mobile network, selecting a desired a network is an important issue. Parameters such as system load, service characteristics and user mobility are the main criteria in network selection strategy. In this paper, we devise a mobility estimation method for a Mobile Node (MN) during initial network selection and Vertical Handover (VHO). The method relies on a new prediction dwelling time and the Call Holding Time (CHT) of a user. By comparing the predicted dwelling time with the CHT, a MN is able to make decision which network is suitable to be used in order to minimize the VHO. The proposed theoretical model has been validated by the MonteCarlo experiments. The simulation results demonstrate the validity of the proposed method.
