Abstract—Femtocell networks that use Home evolved NodeB (HeNB) and existing networks for backhaul connectivity can fulfill the upcoming demand for high data rates in wireless communication systems as well as extend the coverage area. In this paper we seem handover between femtocell and macrocell as a heterogeneous handover and apply the Host Identity Protocol (HIP) with Media Independent Handover (MIH) to achieve handover execution. It considers handover parameters for, including interference, velocity, RSS and quality of service (QoS) level. We propose a new handover strategy based on HIP between the femtocell and the macrocell for LTE (Long Term Evolution) -based networks in hybrid access mode. This strategy can avoid unnecessary handovers and can reduce handover failure.

Index Terms—Femtocells, Handover, HIP, MIH, Hybrid access mode.
