A Novel Anchor Selection Scheme for Distributed Mobility Management
MetadataShow full item record
The number of subscribers in mobile networks is growing rapidly, which challenges network management and data delivery. Efficient management and routing are key solutions. One important solution is distributed mobility management (DMM). which handles the mobility of subscribers at the edges of mobile networks and load balancing. Otherwise, mobility anchors are distributed across a network that can manage the handover procedures. In this paper, we propose a novel mobility anchor-selection scheme based on the results of a cost function with three factors to select a suitable cell as well as an anchor for moving subscribers and improving the handover performances of networks. Our results illustrate that the proposed scheme provides significantly enhanced handover performance.
