This paper examined the handovers in cellular networks from both functional and informational security point of view. The aim was to find out if the security goals of confidentiality, integrity and availability (CIA) are preserved during handovers. Whereas functional security is concerned with the proper operation of the handover procedures, informational security deals with confidentiality and integrity of the handover process. The global system for mobile communication provides data and voice…

Heterogeneous mobile network access control technology based on mutual trust mechanism
TLDR
A naive Bayesian-based machine learning method to select the optimal access network in heterogeneous networks for mobile communication nodes, and adopts the hidden node detection method based on hidden Markov model to prevent malicious nodes in abnormal state from destroying network security.
Optimized channel allocation in emerging mobile cellular networks
TLDR
A modified Erlang-B dynamic channel allocation (MEB-DCA) scheme is introduced, which introduces a conditional threshold for handoff request assignment to ensure that communication systems do not unnecessarily prioritize handoff calls at the detriment of new calls.

A Survey of Wireless Communication Technologies & Their Performance for High Speed Railways
TLDR
This survey determined a trend of the industry to transition control plane operations towards narrowband frequencies, i.e. LTE400/700, and to utilize concurrently other technologies for broadband access for passengers such that services of both user and train control systems are supported.
Hierarchical Cellular Structures in High-Capacity Cellular Communication Systems
TLDR
The ability of hierarchical cellular structures with inter layer reuse to increase the capacity of mobile communication network by applying total frequency hopping (T-FH) and adaptive frequency allocation (AFA) as a strategy to reuse the macro and micro cell resources without frequency planning in indoor pico cells is explored.
A Survey : Handover scheme of High-Speed Train Environment
TLDR
The proposed system can resolve this issue by using an LTE femtocell based network mobility scheme that uses multiple egress network interface to support seamless handover for high speed train and avoid packet loss in network during handover.
