One of the cutting edge requirements envisioned for next-generation mobile networks is to support ultra-reliable and low latency communication (URLLC), as well as to meet massive traffic demand in the next few years. Although network densification has been considered as one of the promising solutions to boost capacity and high throughput, the impact of mobility on latency and reliability in dense networks has not been well investigated. Moreover, handovers, especially in dense networks, can cause extra delay to the communication and degrade reliability performance. In this paper, we aim to analyse the impact of different handover hysteresis parameters on the performance metrics, such as end-to-end delay and packet loss ratio (PLR). In this regard, we compare latency and PLR performance around cell borders including the handover process with the overall period of simulation. Simulation results show that the impact of mobility becomes more significant in dense networks due to frequent exposure to cell borders and handovers.
