Network selection is a facility that generalizes
the way an application chooses a network.
It allows an administrator or a user to specify
an order of preference among available transport providers.
When a user attempts to access a remote service,
the system first attempts
to make the connection over the primary network;
if that attempt fails, it tries each network in order of
preference until the connection is made.
