An arrangement whereby once a number of RxQual handovers have been triggered and blocked, a reduction in the margin is applied therefore improving the probability that an uncongested target becomes available. This could be achieved by intro- ducing two additional parameters, a threshold to determine how many times a handover triggered should occur and an additional margin to determine how great a reduction in signal strength is accept- able. This mechanism is illustrated in Figure 1.
