I need to create LTE and UMTS handovers in Qualnet 6.1 for my dissertation
Title: "Testing and evaluating handover procedures in 3G and 4G networks"
Handover is a very important process in mobile cellular networks. Handover enables call/session transfer from one cell to another. When a mobile equipment is in a call/session, the NB/eNB collects signal level and bit error rate and decides if a handover is required based on a threshold (handover margin). This project aims at analysing comparing handover procedure employed in 3G and 4G networks by simulating and evaluating varied mobile network scenarios.
Skills and knowledge: knowledge of UMTS/LTE technologies and architectures and simulation environments such as Qualnet.
