WiMAX network is one of the high speed networks that provide the high level security and reliability over the network. One of the common problems in WiMax network is the handover mechanism. Most of the chances of data loss and intrusion are during the handover process. To get the better efficiency and throughput an efficient handover mechanism is required. This paper proposes an optimized handover scheme for mobile WiMAX networks that tries to minimize packet loss during handover. With the help of simulation the authors will show that this scheme is more efficient then traditional handover.
