IEEE 802.16 WirelessMAN aiming to broadband wireless access (BWA) is evolving to 4G mobile communication systems through the standardization of IEEE 802.16e supporting mobility on existing fixed WirelessMAN systems. Because IEEE 802.16e system is based on OFDM(A) technology, a mobile subscriber station (MSS) basically conducts hard handover operation when it moves to another base station (BS). Therefore, the MSS is not able to send or receive the data during handover process and these data should be delayed. As a result, real-time packet could be dropped by handover delay. In this paper, we propose an enhanced link-layer handover algorithm that an MSS can receive downlink data before synchronization with uplink during handover process. Our proposed scheme reduces data transmission delay and packet loss probability for real-time downlink service.
