This paper presents an evaluation based on media independent handover (MIH) that addresses the handover requirements. This research addresses the analysis of handovers by mobile devices for switching. Simulation experiments are performed for performance analysis in ns-2. Performance parameters for analysis are throughput, delay, packet loss ratio, speed and number of nodes. Two scheduling algorithms are selected for evaluation named proportional fair and exponential proportional fair. From observations it is deduced that overall EXP-PF performs better whereas PF shows higher throughput for a network of high speed nodes.
