In WMN, handoff is a significant parameter of research. Whenever 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. During mobility, packet transmission may enhance the number of security threats and network performance degradation issues which needs a secure routing protocol to be considered. In order to overwhelm over these hitches, this manuscript proposes a technique called Efficient Handoff Routing EHR. The suggested technique is compared and evaluated over network metrics i. e. handoff latency, throughput, end-to-end delay and packet delivery ratio. Further the approach is proved by describing a formal analysis over parameters.
