Hard Handover

A handoff, or handover, is the process in which a cellular phone is handed from one cell to the next in order to maintain a radio connection with the network. A hard handover results in the radio connection being broken between the network and the mobile, before a new radio connection is established with the network in the target cell. Hard handovers usually require a change of frequency.
