Handover Control in a cellular infrastructure aims to provide continuity of mobile services to a user traveling over cell boundaries. Using the existing Handover Control algorithm in 3rd Generation (3G) Mobile Cellular Networks supporting multicast and broadcast multimedia services (MBMS) might prove inefficient due to the new aspects introduced. In this paper we investigate and highlight the inefficiencies caused when a PMM (Packet Mobility Management)-Connected mobile user is receiving an MBMS service and performs a handover using the existing handover approach. We therefore propose and evaluate a specific MBMS handover approach to address the issues highlighted in our analysis.
