This paper presents a two-tier cellular structure with femtocells in open access mode. The addition of these base stations extends the offered system capacity and coverage area of the network. This two network parameters nowadays becomes rather important to provide Quality of Service (QoS) for data-hungry applications. Femto base stations (FBS) are deployed randomly to extend the coverage of conventional base stations. Since the femtocells are operating here in open access mode, so that the handover probability parameter becomes important concern. In this article, we declare the handover probability using the fundamentals of stochastic geometry.
