This paper uses strongest cell handover algorithm to increase the performance of the network. LTE module of ns3 network simulator is used for implementation. This algorithm is based on Reference Signal Received power. Hysteresis and time to trigger parameters are considered. Various researchers rely on user mobility for their project simulation. The result of strongest cell handover algorithm is also compared with No-op Handover algorithm. This paper analyse the performance of A3-RSRP algorithm of Long Term Evolution module of ns3 simulator.
