Abstract: Now-a-days LEO satellites have an important role in global communication system. They have some advantages like low power requirement and low end-to-end delay, more efficient frequency spectrum utilization between satellites and spot beams over GEO and MEO. So in future they can be used as a replacement of modern terrestrial wireless networks. But the handover occurrence is more due to the speed of the LEOs. Different protocol has been proposed for a successful handover among which BMBHO is more efficient. But it had a problem during the selection of the mobile node during handover. In our previous work we have proposed an algorithm so that the connection can be established easily with the appropriate satellite. In this paper we will evaluate the mobility management cost of Algorithm based Billboard Manager Based Handover method (BMBHO). A simulation result shows that the cost is lower than the cost of Mobile IP of SeaHO-LEO and PatHO-LEO.
