A Method for Improved Handover and Interference Management in Next Generation Wireless Networks

TECHNOLOGY OPPORTUNITY

Florida International University (FIU) is seeking a business partner interested in developing and commercializing a method for improved handover count and interference management in next generation wireless networks. Current Long Term Evolution (LTE) and all its successors use the mobility state classifications of low, medium, and high. Such coarse classification loses information. The method being developed at FIU obtains the exact velocity of user equipment (UE) mobility and uses the number of handovers within a time window to give more accurate information. A variation that uses sojourn time values improves the accuracy further. This technology will maintain better mobility management and interference management in next generation wireless networks.

APPLICATIONS

Next generation wireless networks starting with 5G.

ADVANTAGES
  • Seamless connectivity to broadband networks
  • Higher throughputs in networks for applications such as high definition video
  • Improves accuracy, and can be used more flexibly
  • Improved mobility and interference management
