A software-assisted handover between wireless local area network (LAN) and wide area networks (WAN) (SAHWW) is presented for application roaming in heterogeneous networks. Wireless WAN is chosen as a backup for wireless LAN (WLAN). In a situation when WLAN cannot handle the connection, it is passed to the backup network. Such process is assisted by a software-handover agent which resides on the MW and the server. The handover agent virtually coordinates the two networks and makes the handover procedure transparent to users. SAHWW is developed in order to provide seamless roaming between WLAN and WAN.
