Wireless communication is reveling its fastest growth period in history, due to enabling technologies which allow extensive deployment. Handover is a critical feature in cellular systems and therefore handover algorithms are under extensive research. A handover priority queuing method, which can be used to show rapid handovers with a smaller percentage of dropped calls than any other methods. There is a scheme that allows base stations to borrow channels from neighboring base station in a communication system is presented. Borrowed channels are used with shortened transmitted power to confine interference with co-channel cells. The authors follow different approaches proposed for achieving handover prioritization and channel allocation with a focus on reservation schemes.
