Abstract

Effective link layer triggering is key in order to enable fast and reliable handover across different access networks. In this paper, we investigate the use of signal strength as part of the trigger mechanism. We propose an analytical model to estimate the anticipation required in order to achieve a target handover loss performance, for both voice and video traffic patterns. Numerical results from the analytical model are presented and compared to simulation data obtained for realistic handover scenarios.
