Abstract—One of the most promising approach in macrocell and femtocell networks is to improve the network capacity and network coverage. This regard handover modified technique is needed for existing networks to support the integrated microcell and femtocell network. The signal-to-interference ratio measurement parameters and quality of service (QoS) should be considered for handover between microcell and femtocell. In the conventional networks the regular and needless handover therefore need to be optimized to enhance the overall performance of integrated macrocell-femtocell network. However, not a sufficient amount of work has been carried out so far in this direction. To bridge this research gap, we propose an efficient and intelligent management handover algorithm for handovers in between microcell and femtocell to minimization of unnecessary handover and maintain the quality of service (QoS) while taking the signal-to-interference ration, received signal strength (RSS), user type and availability of bandwidth under consideration. We simulate the proposed handover optimization scheme to validate the performance. The numerical results show that the proposed algorithm revenues a higher probability that the user will be properly allocated to the femtocell while upholding number of handovers at the same level.
