Interworking Design for LTE Convergence
The aim of future wireless networks is to provide a universal ubiquitous coverage across different radio technologies through a multi-modal Mobile Node (MN), while offering a rich range of services with variable bandwidth and Quality of Service (QoS) anytime and anywhere. These features require connectivity across multiple networks with different radio technologies, over different geographic areas, with access to different types of services. Such connectivity can be provided by the 4G architecture which envisions highly flexible and adaptive integration of diverse radio technologies to support built-in capabilities for seamless interaction in these environments .
