Chapter

Multiaccess networks are systems created by the integration of two or more radio access technologyss (RATs) which cooperate, in order to provide a better use of their complementary features, aiming at a higher performance as a whole. In order to achieve this integration, a logical entity called common radio resource management (CRRM) is adopted, whose role is to perform a higher level management. CRRM allows the communication and coordination among different RATs to accomplish overall performance goals.
