"In this paper, the authors present a mobility improvement handover algorithm with less scan time implementation for Mobile WiMAX. Mobile WiMAX is a wireless technology based on IEEE802.16e for broadband wireless access. Mobile WiMAX introduces the most significant new feature, mobility to support for handovers, which can be considered as a basic requirement for mobile communication system. The mandatory handoff method is hard handoff for mobile WiMAX and other two optional soft handoff methods are macro diversity handoff and fast base station switching handoff method."
