In Heterogeneous systems, Vertical Handoff calculations (VHAs) used to permit mobile terminals (MT) to keep up the system association when versatile hub switch starting with one remote system then onto the next one. The Vertical Handover Decision is NP-Hard issue, thus assessment of all VHA is imperative perspective while working with Vertical Handoff calculations. In this paper, we concentrated on different assessment models which were utilized by past analysts. We likewise concentrated on the different parameters which are imperative for execution examination of VHAs and represent the absence of a legitimate assessment model to look at the different Vertical Handoff Algorithms (VHAs) that have been proposed in the writing.
