Summary:
The ever increasing demand for capacity in wireless cellular networks is resolved by decreasing the size of the cells. The smaller cells created inside large cells are called microcells and they cover smaller and dense areas. As a result of this, the mobile device ends up changing the base stations or performing handover at a much higher rate. To maintain the reliability and quality of the call, it is obligatory to ascertain that the handover is performed at a proper location. If the handover is delayed or the mobile handset drags its base station, it is more probable that either the call will drop or the quality of the call will be compromised. The last thing a mobile handset user would want is to experience any of these two consequences. In this thesis we study the methods to analyze the performance ofhandover by the mobile handsets in the drive setup under test. This thesis presents a model for analyzing the performance ofhandoffbased on the measurements ofthe received signal strength indicator and the color code recorded by the mobile handset in the drive test field path. The model from the simulations is seen to yield results that agree with other research about the performance of mobile handsets.
