Quality of Experience (QoE) based handoffs inheterogeneous access networks (HAN) necessitates accurate QoEestimation and prediction. The current approaches to QoE-awarehandoffs are limited. These approaches either lack the availabilityof underlying probing mechanism or lack the availability ofQoE estimation and prediction mechanism. In this paper, wepropose, develop and validate a novel method for QoE estimationand prediction using passive probing mechanisms. Ourmethod is based on hidden Markov models and multi-homedmobility management protocol. Using extensive simulations andexperimental studies, we show that our method achieves QoEestimation accuracy of 100% and prediction accuracy of 97% inHAN without using additional probe packets for QoE estimationand prediction.
