Wireless mobile networks and devices are becoming increasingly popular to provide users the access anytime and anywhere. The mobile systems are based on cellular approach and the area is covered by cells that overlap each other. Many handover algorithms are proposed in the literature. However, to make a better handover and keep the QoS in wireless networks is very difficult task. For this reason, new intelligent algorithms should be implemented to deal with this problem. In this paper, we carried out a comparison study of two handover systems based on fuzzy logic. We implement two fuzzy-based handover systems (FBHS). We call them FBHS1 and FBHS2. The performance evaluation via simulations shows that FBHS2 has better behavior than FBHS2 and can avoid ping-pong effect in all simulation cases.
