An enhanced handoff scheme for ATM-based cellular networks in linear environments is proposed. Some regularly spaced cells are assigned as rerouting cells. If a handoff call comes to a rerouting cell, its traffic path is rerouted to a PVC between the cell and the ATM switch. If a handoff call comes to an ordinary cell, its traffic path is simply elongated by a PVC between the new cell and its previous cell. The path efficiency is improved.
