The integration and implementation of vehicle-to-everything (V2X) in the transportation sector can potentially improve vehicle, passenger and traffic safety, and efficiency. This benefit, which is one of the objectives of intelligent transport systems, faces challenges and difficulties parallel to those that hinder the realization of the benefits promoted by 5G mobile networks and beyond. High-speed user equipment (UE) in the form of vehicles must be able to seamlessly connect to various entities in the network while avoiding common handover (HO) issues such as frequent and unnecessary HOs and radio link failures resulting in the degradation of quality of service (QoS). In this paper, we propose a hybrid cell selection mechanism based on signal quality, coverage, and bandwidth to reduce issues and optimize operations concerning HO that will boost V2X network performance.
