OMNET VERTICAL HANDOVER PROJECTS

Vertical handover Projects using Omnet++  use different radio access technologies (RAT).When the two cells use different (RAT) or if they belong to different operators, the process is called vertical handover (VHO).

Phases of vertical handover:
Generally three different phases are involved in vertical handover process. There are,

  • Handover information gathering
  • Network selection decision
  • Handover execution

Different criteria considered during VHO:

  • Received signal strength
  • Bandwidth
  • User’s perceived quality of service
  • Error rate
  • Throughput
  • Battery state
  • Cost
  • User preference for a certain radio access technology etc.
