In order to meet high data traffic demands in fifth generation (5G) networks, many small cells (eNBs) are needed. This approach is used in next-generation wireless communication to increase network capacity and coverage in dense networks. However, this approach can cause handover delays and unnecessary handover (ping-pong effect). In order to overcome these problems, fuzzy logic-based handover management has been proposed in small cell networks. In fuzzy logic-based handover management, mobile nodes select the most suitable small cells with RSSI, SNR, and Jitter parameters. Thanks to this approach, mobile nodes determine the most suitable small cells with fuzzy logic decision mechanism in next generation 5G small cell networks. Fuzzy logic-based handover management and traditional handover algorithm have been compared using delay and handover numbers. According to the results, it has been observed that the proposed approach gives more successful results than the traditional handover algorithm.
