This paper suggests the way to perform the handover by predicting the movement route of the mobile terminal by considering the movement pattern of the user. By considering the fact that the most users has the constant movement pattern, the channels needed for the handover can be reserved, and the required quality of service (QoS) is maintained during handover. The suggested algorithm makes the channel allocation schemes more efficient.
