Title:
Handoff algorithm for mobile satellite systems with ancillary terrestrial component
Authors:
Sadek, Mirette; Aissa, Sonia
Abstract:
This paper presents a locally optimal handoff algorithm for integrated satellite/ground communication systems. We derive the handoff decision function and present the results in the form of tradeoff curves between the number of handoffs and the number of link degradation events in a given distance covered by the mobile user. This is a practical receiver-controlled handoff algorithm that optimizes the handoff process from a user perspective based on the received signal strength rather than from a network perspective. © 2012 IEEE.
