Quality of service metrics and differentiated service mechanism policies are the most important criteria to deliver essential Internet requirements, especially during user handover, due to the rapid growth of users, multimedia applications, and traffic. DiffServ routers provide per-hop behaviors to manage traffic for services, whereas their policies have been applied to several types of Internet traffic, such as hypertext transfer protocol, file transfer protocol, and content-based routing. Multihoming aims to improve the reliability, scalability, and performance of data communications networks. This paper evaluated DiffServ various policies compared in a systematic manner (in two stages) over the multihomed networks to utilize and adopt the best policy for communicating packets, and enhanced the overall performance in terms of throughput, end-to-end latency, and processing time. Moreover, the paper introduced an interface-selection technique for multihomed nodes to select a proper interface, which provides the best services and links the behaviors that this interface yields. The overall results showed how the introduced multihoming-based interface-selection mechanism managed to maintain communication with the multihomed node. Furthermore, our results showed that the DiffServ time-sliding window with a three-color marking policy achieved the best system performance compared with the remaining policies.
