Within cellular systems prediction has proven to be a potential solution to enhancing the handover procedure to guarantee constant Quality of Service to mobile users. By using historical route information, the future movement of mobile devices is predicted in advance with the aim to reserve resources prior to arrival of the device in a new cell. However, as the traffic patterns of devices in this environment change over time this needs to be taken into consideration when designing a prediction system. This paper presents a Neural Network-based movement prediction system for a cellular environment with a Genetic Algorithm-based retraining scheme using layer-based adaptive mutation to enhance the system performance in the presence of changing traffic patterns. © 2010 Springer Science+Business Media B.V.
