A New Cost Efficient and Low Latency Handoff in Wireless Networks

IEEE 802.11 based Wireless Local Area Networks (WLAN) have been widely deployed for business and personal applications. The main issue regarding wireless network technology is handoff or hand over management, especially in urban areas, due to the limited coverage of Access Points (APs) or Base Stations (BS). In this paper a new cost efficient and low latency handoff scheme is proposed where the number of Access Points (AP) is optimized in such a way that it fulfils both the criteria of low cost and low handoff latency.
