Need to communicate with others give birth to networks in case of technology. There are many networks like cellular, WiMax etc. exists in today's world. For communication in networks the authors need devices that are movable. Due to distance between devices direct link is not possible between sender and receiver, so transmission is performed using handover technique. In Wimax network handover is of two type's horizontal and vertical handover. Horizontal handover is further categorized into four types. Out of all IP based handover is base of this type of handover but it has certain drawbacks like more time consumption.
