Effect of mobility models on infrastructure based wireless networks

A Agashe, S.K Bodhe


The tremendous demand is pushing the development of wireless mobile communications faster than ever before. Handoff management has widely been recognized as one of the most important and challenging problems for a seamless access to wireless network and mobile services. Mobility Models plays an important role in handoff management. In this paper, the effect of handoff procedure on the performance of random mobile nodes in wireless networks was investigated. Mobility of node is defined by various mobility models. Evaluating mobility models within an infrastructured network gives solution to performance measures like blocking probability, dropping probability to evaluate the performance of handoff algorithm. Handoff algorithm based on Absolute and Relative Measurement was used to examine the effect of Random Walk and Gauss Markov mobility models on
performance of Infrastructure based Wireless Network.
