A dynamic decision making framework for mulithomed infrastructure with convergence, unification and heterogeneity orientation is presented. Diversity and dimensionality of the multifaceted service, control, transport and access planes along with multiple objectives over the platform has led us to extend a MCDM method (Grey Relational Analysis). Extended method is then integrated with ontology for capturing semantics and dynamic variations. MCDM helps in achieving the multiple objectives on the basis of multi-disciplinary information domains. The ontology, on the other hand, overcomes the semantic matching and reasoning issues using conventional object-oriented techniques with the help of inference engine. A simple use-case involving the dynamic decision-based routing at private-public network border is presented to validate the proposed solution. The system gives higher throughput and lower call dropping probability with an add-on susceptible delay offering good QoS.
