Since the most recent couple of years, there has been an exceptional development in the wireless communication. Presently, mobile operators are engaged with deployment of 4G. Recently, LTE-A or WiMAX 802.16 m is used to fulfill the users’ requirement which is set by ITU. There are numerous generations of wireless communication from one to fifth and nowadays sixth also coming forward. In this year, 4G will conclude and 5G will come up with new advanced technology but it is not yet standardized. It will be deployable by 2020, and in the future such cellular communications will change our life and go beyond our expectations. In this paper, we focus on handover decision algorithm (HDA) for next generation. This paper presents the algorithm for better handover rate than the existing algorithm which is mostly required for next-generation network. This paper also enlightens the 5G architecture and its standards and handoff in networks.
