Performance Evaluation of LTE Hard Handover Algorithm with Multimedia Data Transmission
Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) Long Term Evolution (LTE) adopts hard handover mechanism which reduces the overhead involved in handover mechanism. There are many hard handover algorithms, among them LTE Hard Handover Algorithm (LHHA) and LTE Hard Handover Algorithm with Average RSRP Constraint (LHHAARC) are well known. This paper evaluates and compares the performance of both the algorithms taking the Quality-Of-Service (QOS) parameters such as throughput, handover delay of multimedia services such as Audio, Video through simulation using JAVA platform. The results obtained from simulation prove that LHHAARC performs better than LHHA algorithm evaluated under different circumstances.
