In dynamic nature of WMN, handoff latency is a significant parameter of research. When a mesh client leaves the range of serving mesh router and searches for accessing a new router based on good SNR (Signal to Noise) ratio, a handoff procedure takes place. Whenever a mobile client leaves the range of its Home Mesh Router (HMR) and connects to a Foreign Mesh Router (FMR), mobile (roaming) client needs to authenticate itself as a legitimate node to its FMR in order to get the network services.

In order to overwhelm over these hitches, this manuscript propose a technique Fast Handoff Technique (FHT). The suggested technique is compared and evaluated over the network metrics i.e. handoff latency and computational overhead. Further the approach is proved by describing a formal analysis over parameters.
