Abstract: In wireless networks, tree structures are mainly used for routing and quality of service (QoS) maintenance. The main concern for the wireless system arises during the movement of the node (i.e., connectivity maintenance). The entire network performance is based on this aspect. To maintain connectivity, handover must be initiated by the network devices or individual nodes within the network. In this work, a localised tree model is used for seamless access and handover maintenance in personal wireless networks. To the best of our knowledge, none of the existing handover research is based on tree models. Both an entire tree structure and a broken tree structure are used for handover maintenance. The proposed work analyses the handoff parameters with network simulations.

Keywords: seamless handover; mobility management; localised tree models; wireless networks; node mesh modelling; wireless personal networks; connectivity maintenance; handover maintenance; simulation.
