WiMax, the Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access is a new technology dealing with provision of data over long distance using wireless communication method in many different ways. Based on IEEE 802.16 WiMax is claimed as an alternative broadband rather than cable and DSL. In our thesis study we will findout the phenomenon and factors involved in WiMax handover and their effect on overall quality of service. We also intend to look into the solutions possible for those problems effecting WiMax QoS in handover. Handover is the main theme of wireless technolgy and it makes interoperability between diffrent network technologies and provides mobility. However there are some problems during handover and the problem in our focus will be handover delay. Handover delay if longer than expected makes the communication faulty and introduces errors and packet loss which in turns degrade QoS in WiMax
