– Handover Control in a cellular infrastructure aims to provide continuity of mobile services to a user traveling over cell boundaries. Using the existing Handover Control algorithm in 3rd Generation (3G) Mobile Cellular Networks supporting multicast and broadcast multimedia services (MBMS) might prove inefficient due to the new aspects introduced. In this… (More)
(3GPP) in Rel 5/6/7/8 and the challenges ahead. Although HSDPA network performance was studied by other researchers, the aim of this paper is to analyse the Iub backhaul limitations with different traffic types through simulations. User traffic data was imported from the live network in Maidenhead and used in these simulations.
