In next generation networks, mobile communication calls for service with higher quality, which brings new challenge for mobility management. Thereinto, utilization and improvement of mobility prediction helps for preserving resource and providing better performance. So this paper aims to propose a theoretical and factual method to perform mobility prediction in cellular network. By analyzing the demand and character of this kind of personal mobility prediction in large spacial and temporal scale, it is concluded that Hidden Markov Model fits for system modeling. However, classical HMM algorithm will meet with numerical calculation problem when adopted to practical communication system. An improved algorithm is put forward to overcome possible calculating defects. Three different scenarios are set to testify HMM's efficiency and accuracy, using factual measurement data in cellular network.
