Distributed Operating Systems achieves resource sharing, improved performance, and increased throughput, fault tolerance and modular expandability by overflowing jobs between systems. Cellular networks can also benefit from overflowing traffic between diverse cellular networks, such as 2G, 2+G, 3G, and W-LAN networks. However, simply overflowing traffic across networks can result in unfair QoS to the component services. We develop the concept of Service Balancing, where traffic distribution attempts to achieve QoS goals per service, across cellular networks.
