Modeling Handover from the Access Networks’ Perspective

  • Sven Wiethoelter

Abstract

Simulation of handover processes is a complex methodological approach to performance evaluation as it involves modeling user mobility as well as technical details of the underlying communication system. On the one hand, depending on the degree of detail considered for both aspects, corresponding simulation models may become highly complex in terms of reflecting characteristics of the system under investigation. On the other hand, a thorough understanding and analysis of the research question to be elaborated, as well as considering handover-specific aspects of the analyzed technology can very well lead to a simple, compact, and satisfactory simulation model.
