Abstract

Mobility management is an essential functionality in mobile networks enabling subscribers to roam outside their home network. Two new features will be introduced to the GSM system that are related to mobility management. The other feature called CAMEL supports provision of operator specific services, while the other one enables optimal routing of connections. This chapter describes the objectives and technical realization of CAMEL and optimal routing. The implementation of these features makes GSM Mobile Application Part a full fledged mobility management platform capable of meeting the challenges of third generation mobile networks.
