This paper proposes a distributed handover protocol for a micro-cell packet switched mobile network. In such a network, users move from one cell to another very often, and each change of location may result in misrouted and lost packets. The purpose of the new protocol is to minimize these consequences of location changes: as long as a mobile moves from one cell to another but stays in the same region, the protocol avoids loss of packets and preserves order of transmission. Thus it increases the performance of the transport layer protocol by minimizing the need to retransmit packets.
