Universal Mobile Telephone system (UMTS) is a third generation mobile and wireless communications standard which is also being developed into a fourth generation technology. We wanted to study the performance of such a wireless cellular network during soft and hard handover scenarios with single and multiple towers. An attempt is thus made to use existing simulation models to study the related performance graphs as the mobile node moves around.
