In a wireless 5G network, when a mobile device (UE) travelling across different sites, it can be either in connected mobility or Idle mode mobility. Considering the two situation’s 5G mobility scenarios i.e. in Connected Mode Mobility UE does perform handover and in Idle mode mobility UE does cell selection /reselection as shown in below figure.
When UE doing in connected mode mobility and does handovers, these handovers be following types considering a multi frequency deployment.
- Blind Handover
- Coverage Based Intra Frequency Handover
- Coverage Based Inter Frequency Handover
- Frequency Priority Based Inter Frequency Handover
