In order to face the increasing demand for bandwidth caused by mobile data applications and value-added mobile services, 4G/LTE network deployments are Based on the emerging paradigm of networks, Among the various factors that are affecting factors of wireless cellular technology such as delay, throughput, latency etc ,the most effective one is Inter cell Interference(ICI). There are many methods for reducing this ICI, two of them are Frequency Reuse(FR) techniques and Handover techniques. In the dense LTE environment, the deployment of small cells, also called microcells or femto cells are very near in order to provide high data rates and improved quality of services. Different handover algorithms are used and are compared for the good quality of communications. LTE network topology is constructed and simulated done using Ns3 tool. RSRP and RSRQ values are used to calculate the performance of the system. NS-3 is used to simulate this environment and calculate different parameters for different cells like macrocell, microcell, etc using different handover techniques like A3 RSRP handover algorithm and A2A4 RSRQ handover algorithm.
