Abrupt node movements is mobile networks directly affects the network connectivity of the node. Abruptly moving nodes generally face the issue of low network quality, and call drops. An effective handoff mechanism is needed in order to address this issue. In this research, we are proposing a network score based handoff mechanism, which follows the make-before-break principle. An improvement in terms of handoff delay, and packet loss is reported by the extensive analysis and simulations performed on the proposed system. Average handoff delay of less than 1ms, and packet loss ratio of less than 1% are obtained by our research. We plan to extend the research further for multiple networks to extend the performance analysis.
