    ABSTRACT: A prominent growth in a wireless communication system provides a wide range of services for a heterogeneous wireless network thus accomplishing user’s needs. These real time services are delay sensitive which requires a continuous internet connection. Assuring a seamless end-end connectivity without link outages at the mid of an action is a crucial ongoing problem. Thus the main objective relies on designing a cognitive algorithm to achieve the practical impossibility of having a sustainable net connection while roaming across various technologies. Hence, to fulfill this and degrade vertical handover (VHO) issues an enhanced fuzzy logic based algorithm is proposed. Further, it focuses on improving the transmission quality with low handover latency, less packet loss and reduced false handover. Along with this the algorithm achieves an accurate prediction in the decision making of an optimal network to which the idle node gets connected. The networking environment also has an efficient mobility management, where the functioning network controls the mobility of concerned mobile nodes. Finally the simulation process of this proposal on a comprehensive test-bed infers the fuzzy logic based algorithm, guaranteed seamless connection. Further, the system has a 1.6% improvement in reducing the handover delay and 1.3% in packet loss reduction than the existing approaches, which in turn improves the transmission quality.
