LTE stands for Long Term Evolution. Mobility in LTE Femtocell network is an issue when the Mobile Station (MS) moves and has to handover to Femto Base Station (BS). This results in unnecessary Femto BS scanning and handover delay, which may affect real-time applications. In this paper, authors have proposed a method of scanning only two Femto BSs depending on the direction of movement of the mobile user. Due to this scanning time will be reduced compared to conventional scanning. Finally, depending on RSS and BW available at the shortlisted Femto BSs the handover decision is made.
