We propose a novel handover initiation algorithm based on available bit rate and timing constraint criterion for multimedia capable cellular systems. Computer simulations are performed to evaluate the handover rate and handover initiation delay. Numerical results show that handover must be initiated at different positions for different services to maintain the required quality of service requirements.
