During the ever emerging network with dense amount of interconnected devices environment, seamless, stable, sustainable and reliable network connection is very crucial in providing the best services to user’s specifically mobile data user. The success rate of mobile users’ handover from current serving cell to another target cell has to be at its optimum. However, with the advancement of this technology of ensuring the trade-off between handover failure and unnecessary handover is taken care of ensuring that only required handover is pursued in order to save the network resource utilization capacity. Hence, there is a need to have better system performance to ensure handover failure is avoided as much as possible. In general, there are several method that can be and has been well research to mitigate the issue on handover failure before which taken into account the RSS measure, time travelling estimation, handover necessity estimation, triggering condition and others. This study aims to enhance the current applied method which use time travelling estimation for a mobile users to stay inside the WLAN coverage area before it is being decided whether to handover or remain connected with the current serving network. The enhancement proposed the increase in overlapping area for a BS and MS to have sufficient time to initiate the handover so that handover failure can be avoided to lower than previous method. Consequently, the system model will compare the result from previous method and this newly proposed measure has improved the total handover failure occurrences by 50%, that every 100 failures from the previous method, this proposed method able to reduce the numbers of handover failure to only 50. However this result does not work with the speed on an MS greater than 30km/h. Hence with this result, it is proposed that for speed higher than 30km/h the same method remains in use to avoid any handover failure to the system.
