Improvement in Packet Drop During Handover Between WiFi and WiMax
Efficiency of seamless handover in heterogeneous networks depends on the factors such as handoff delay, number of handovers and packet drop during handovers. Improving the efficiency of seamless handover in multiple mobile broadband access technologies depends on selecting suitable handover time and interface, is the challenging issue in next generation wireless networks. Selecting suitable time and interface for seamless handover depends on the factors like signal strength, available bandwidth, the price of the link, the user mobility and power of the battery etc. IEEE 802.21 provided a framework which facilitates seamless handover in heterogeneous wireless networks.
