Analytical-Numerical Study of the Handoff Area Sojourn Time

In cellular systems, there is usually an overlap cell coverage area (area covered by two or more base stations) which has valuable practical applications: soft handoff is an important feature of CDMA systems, and in hard handoff, the overlap area allows the queuing of handover requests as a handover prioritization scheme. While an extensive research effort has been done to model the terminal residence time in a cell and the channel holding time, the sojourn time in the overlap area is a topic that still requires further study.
