ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT: This research paper is based on simulation and analysis of QOS parameters for hard and soft handoffs. Performance of UMTS scenario is evaluated for various multimedia applications like FTP and HTTP. To accomplish the task of simulation OPNETTM 14.5 modulator used. From results, soft handoff is better than hard handoff because soft handoff support connections during mobility and handoff.
