This course explores the standardisation work that has been achieved by 4G and 3GPP towards making the new core network for LTE - the SAE (Systems Architecture Evolution), the core network for all wireless access networks. This common core allows both vertical and horizontal handovers (handovers between wireless technologies) during a communication session or call.
The end goal would be a converged mobile network where a user’s device hands over from technology to technology as the user moves, the terminal selecting the best network in terms of cost and performance for the current application.
The specifications are aimed at WLAN interworking but may be extensible to other technologies. In particular, the WiMAX Forum have looked at this area from their viewpoint and have specified a strategy and interfaces to the 3GPP core for WiMAX.
