    Coordinated Multiple (CoMP) Transmission and Reception technology is expected to enhance the Long Term Evolution – Advanced (LTE-A) system throughput and reduce the packet loss ratio (PLR) compared to the LTE system. However, this could lead to system capacity overload and saturated system throughput issues within a highly congested network. To address this situation, this paper describes three proposed CoMP handover algorithms for the LTE-A system. These algorithms take one or more decision criteria into consideration to increase system capacity. System performance of each proposed CoMP handover algorithm is evaluated and compared with open literature via computer simulation. Simulation results are provided with a handover parameters optimization and a discussion of the performance testing.
