A b s t r a c t: The major issue presented in this paper is a novel QoS and vertical multi-homing and multi-
streaming framework for the fifth generation (5G) of mobile terminals with radio network aggregation capability;
using Lyapunov optimization in 5G mobile and wireless networks. The proposed 5G (mobile and fixed) terminal is
leading to high performance utility networks with high QoS provisioning for any given multimedia service, higher
bandwidth utilization, traffic load sharing, lower consumption of power and multi-radio interface capabilities. Our
framework is user-centric, targeted to always-on connectivity with using radio network aggregation for achieving
broadband connections, maximal network utilization, minimal battery life time, maximal throughput and perform-
ances improvement. Moreover, our proposed framework is using Lyapunov drift-plus-penalty theorem that provides a
methodology for designing algorithm to maximize the average throughput and stabilize the queuing, leading to mini-
mal queue delays. Also, we are showing the upper bound of the consumed power and the lower bound of the battery
life time for the proposed 5G terminal. The performance of our 5G terminal framework is evaluated using simulations
and analysis with multimedia traffic in heterogeneous mobile and wireless environment.

Key words: 5G terminal; aggregation; Lyapunov optimization; quality of service; vertical multi-homing
