There has been a continuous demand, of smart phone users, for high bandwidth and the least usage cost of the network. The smart phone users require high bandwidth for use of multiple mobile applications. Vertical Handover (VHO) becomes a necessity for hassle free running of these mobile applications while smart phone users are travelling. In this research paper, we present an intelligent decision algorithm for vertical handover which decide the best network among the available candidate networks. The decision is based on the calculation of the score value of the networks. The parameters considered are the cost of the usage, bandwidth and battery consumption. We have considered two networks scenario i.e.3G & Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN).
