Abstract

This study aims to incorporate location tracking of Mobile Terminals (MTs) for wireless resource management in contrast to existing schemes employing signal strength patterns and signal arrival timing characteristics. The incorporation of location information in Handoff (HO) call handling under heterogeneous traffic conditions can provide better efficiency and Quality of Service (QoS) guaranties. As present results confirm, a HO call handling scheme that takes into account the Received Signal Strength (RSS), speed and call type of users to prioritize HO requests reduces the blocking probability of HO calls, detects false HOs and provides better resource utilization performance as compared to Non Priority and First In First Out HO queuing schemes.
