Paper Abstract

Handoff rate is a fundamental index to evaluate the handoffperformance and as a result it afftcts the overall performance of cellular mobile communication system. Meanwhile, moving patterns of mobiles are critical to the handoff rate. In this paper the relation between user's mobility and system handoff rate is studied The analytic result shows the soft handoff rate increases with the mobile speed Furthermore, with a little simplijication of the analytical model, the handoffrate and the mobile speed display linear relation, which is confirmed by the simulation results. Based on it, the effect about combinations of users 'multiple velocities on the handoff rate is investigated. It turns out that the handoffrate ofa system with several user mobility patterns can be estimated with the handoff rates ofcorresponding single user mobility pattern systems.
