Abstract

The objective of this research is to propose an adaptive handoff algorithm which can effectively deal with hotspot cells in next-generation cellular networks. Under the proposed algorithm, the signaling burden is evenly distributed and the regional network boundary is dynamically adjusted according to the traffic load, handoff type and speed of mobiles in advance, before handoff execution. A simulation model is developed to investigate the handoff performance. The simulation results find that the proposed algorithm is better than traditional handoff algorithm. Therefore, this algorithm enhances the service quality of users by flexibly manage the overloaded cells.
