Abstract: DVB-H (Digital Video Broadcasting for Handhelds) is a standard specified by the DVB Organization specifically for the broadcast of TV-like content and data to handheld devices, such as mobile phones, which have unique requirements in terms of power consumption, screen-size and mobility. Seamless handover in such a unidirectional network is especially challenging. In this paper we describe the handover issues of DVB-H networks and propose a novel seamless soft handover mechanism based on measuring CDF (Cumulative Distribution Function) of the signal to noise ratio (SNR) in the DVB-H terminal receiver front-end . Details of the algorithm is given and simulation is done to prove the benefits of such soft handover scheme.
