Abstract

We analyze the performance of the hard handoff algorithm used in the 1xEV-DO Rev. A systems. A theoretical approach is presented to calculate the slot error probability (SEP). The approach enables us to evaluate the effects of filtering, hysteresis as well as the system introduced delay of handoff execution. Unlike previous work the model used considers multiple base stations (BS) and accounts for correlation of shadow fading affecting different signal powers received from different BS's. The theoretical results are verified over ranges of parameters of practical interest using simulations which are also used to evaluate the packet error rate (PER) and the number of handoffs.
