The average number of handovers occurred during all simulation scenarios was 3, also the average handover delay achieved was (55.15 ms). The number of handovers were decreased 30% and handover delay was reduced more than 10 ms comparing to conventional handover approaches such RSS-based. Hence, an improved adoption of handover management into femotocell environment.
