The rapid increase in the use of mobile devices demands the need to meet Quality of service requirements of the users. These requirements however, (application demand and allocation) often lead to network congestion and call drops. To deal with this issues (call drop and congestion), many prioritized handoff schemes have been proposed by many researchers. In our previous paper entitled “Development of an Improved Scheme for Minimizing Handoff Failure due to Poor Signal Quality”, we proposed a prioritized handoff scheme which integrates the direction of movement of the mobile device to the M+G scheme in making handoff decision. In this paper, we make comparative analysis of that scheme by comparing its performance with other existing schemes. The MatLab software was used for the simulation.
