%X In the future, the wireless communication networks can be visualized as the integration of different radio access technologies (RATs), which are referred to as heterogeneous wireless networks (HWNs). In this paper, the traffic split scheme in the HWNs integrating the long term evolution (LTE) and the high speed downlink packet access (HSDPA) networks is investigated. Assuming that the networks can support multi-homing access and the user can be served by both networks simultaneously, the traffic split problem is described as an optimization problem with the aim of maximizing the throughput. By solving the problem, the dynamic traffic split scheme is proposed. The split ratios in the scheme should be proportional to the transmission rates in theory, which are hard to be described in the closed forms. Then the adaptive algorithm is proposed to obtain the split ratios. Simulation results show that the scheme with the adaptive algorithm provides better performance than the scheme without it over the additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) fading channel and Rayleigh fading channel.
