Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites will work as an important component in future data communication networks. LEO satellites provide low end-toend delays and efficient frequency spectrum utilization, making them suitable for personal communication. However, due to high satellite speed, ongoing communication using LEO constellations experiences frequent handover. In this article we provide an up-to-date, comprehensive literature survey on proposed handover schemes for LEO satellite systems. We… Expand
