The present disclosure describes techniques and systems for handing over a connection of a user device, within a wireless network, based on qualities of downlink signals and qualities of uplink signals. These techniques and systems include a base station and a neighboring base station negotiating handover parameters, based on the qualities of downlink signals as detected by a user device and the qualities of uplink signals as detected by the base station and the neighboring base station. The base station and neighboring base station negotiate the handover parameters via an interface connecting the base station to the neighboring base station.
