Abstract: Digital Video Broadcasting for Handhelds (DVB-H) is a standard for broadcasting TV like IP data content to portable devices, such as mobile phones, personal digital assistants (PDAs), laptops, etc. Handover in unidirectional broadcasting networks is a novel issue. Since making accurate handover decisions can reduce the battery power consumed, this paper proposes and investigates different strategies that can assist the handover decision-making process in DVB-H networks. The benefits and drawbacks of the different algorithms are presented. A hybrid handover decision-making algorithm is proposed. Future research directions for handover in DVB-H are suggested.
