Applications of todays world require to have dynamic features like mobility support,In this paper we proposed and evaluated a comprehensive set of mechanisms essential to assure the support of mobility in WSNs,by providing energy efficiency mechanism for a node and a mechanism for soft handoff,based on link quality.
