Abstract

Wimax and Wifi are the wireless telecommunications techniques. A number of transmission methods
are used in Wimax and WiFi, such as portable or fully mobile internet access via point to multipoint links. As the
size of a Wireless Network is very massive because of this the complete network is divided in group of clusters. Each
cluster having a cluster head or the base station the controls all nodes of the network. These network can have a
node with the mobility. The problem starts when a node moves from the cluster and when outside the range of base
station . In such case the control of that node shifted to other base station . This process is called head off
mechanism. The proposed scheme is selection of the best base station for the node respective to the reliability and
efficiency. The proposed work is the selection of the base station in case of heterogeneous networks. In this
heterogeneity is defined in terms of two different networks, WiMax and WiFi Networks. The process of handover
between these different networks is called vertical handover procedure. The present work is about to optimize the
vertical handoff process. In this work we have done the parametric changes while performing the selection of base
station. The analysis is performed respective to the effective throughput and the delay. main objectives are: Design
and implementation of WiMax and Wifi Clustered Network in Different Scenarios, Study of Parameters which affect
Handover, Implementation of Proposed Algorithm for effective Hand off between heterogeneous networks.
In this paper, vertical handoff algorithm is proposed by combining 3 parameters while performing handoff, load on
base station, distance and transmission time.
