Classification of handover schemes within a cellular environment

  title={Classification of handover schemes within a cellular environment},
  author={Carolin I. Bauer and John S. Rees},
One way to improve system performance of cellular networks is to use efficient handover schemes when users change between cells. This paper gives an overview of existing handover schemes for current and future systems which will be presented in form of a classification in order to support future development in the field of handover schemes. The classification categorises the different schemes into two main classes: a horizontal and a vertical class. Whilst the vertical class is based on the… CONTINUE READING
