This paper proposes the first use of a deep neural network (DNN) to characterize the dependence of end-to-end latency on key bandwidth allocation decision parameters and diverse network features over heterogeneous body area network (BAN), wireless local area network (WLAN), and passive optical access network (PON) toward ubiquitous e-health. Using the association between latency and bandwidth allocation decisions, the DNN supervises bandwidth values that significantly reduce end-to-end latency. In this paper, we present the proposed DNN architecture and the selection of input features and output targets based on latency tradeoff analysis. We show that with supervised training, the DNN can ac..
