This paper studies the soft-handoff mechanism and compares its performance with hard handoff. Our study indicates that although a handset may potentially consume extra radio links in soft handoff, the mechanism provides better opportunity to transfer the link successfully in the handoff procedure. Thus, by carefully planning the overlay areas of cells, soft handoff can outperform hard handoff.
