PRMA(Packet Reservation Multiple Access) has been proposed for third generation wireless information network by Goodman et al.  . Due to small micro cell radius mobile initiated handoff has been proposed to disperse the burden of BS(Base Station) . Even though these frequent handoffs will not burden on BS, increased contends due to handoff will affect the over all performance of PRMA.
In this paper, we analyze the handoff effect on PRMA performance under micro-cellular system. Steady state speech terminal model with handoff is proposed.. Stabilities are derived based on proposed steady state terminal model[F(cs)=M] and also increased contend [F(ch)=M] due to handoff. The multiple EPA(equilibrium) points change with handoff. Packet dropping probability and data packet delay are calculated using both Markov Analysis and backlog b from F(cs)=M and F(ch)=M. The changes of performance under handoff show the need of handoff schemes at PRMA.
