Performance analysis of predictive trigger algorithm for mobile wimax networks

JULIA URBINA PINEDA (2009)

A major consideration for mobile WiMAX is Seamless Handover. Cellular-based

standards have the advantage of many years experience in handover for voice

calls, while for broadband mobility in itself is no mean feat, and handover is still a

challenge. IEEE 802.16e (Mobile WiMAX) is a wireless metropolitan area network

standard with high transmission speed and great coverage.

This work will address the handover process; an important issue of Mobile WiMAX

system. This thesis considers the importance to have the correct handover

initiation process. By using a predictive algorithm, in hands of the threshold that

triggers the handover process based on RSSI.

We study in this thesis the intracellular and intercellular handover process in

Mobile WiMAX system. We focus in particular on the impact of use a predictive

trigger algorithm in order to ensure a success handover process.

We demonstrate that using a predictive algorithm offers a significantly advantage

over the traditional algorithm of handover process.
