CDMA cellular networks support soft handover, which guarantees the continuity of wireless services and enhanced communication quality. Cellular networks performance depends upon Soft handover parameters. In this paper, the authors have shown the effect of soft handover parameters on the performance of CDMA cellular networks. They consider HYST-ADD and HYST-DROP as the soft handover parameters. A very useful statistical measure for characterizing the performance of CDMA cellular system is the mean active set size and soft handover region.
