This seminars discusses inter-technology mobility functionality being defined for emerging broadband wireless technologies and explains how this new functionality will add value to operatorâ„¢s networks. It explains the difference between various types of inter-technology mobility and then explores how LTE exploits inter-technology mobility to support a variety of access technolo- gies including 3GPP legacy technologies as well as EVDO, WiFi and WiMAX. This paper also provides examples illustrating how to use inter-technology mobility to enhance existing services and provide new ones.
LTE (Long Term Evolution) ("3.9G") is the last step toward the 4th generation (4G) of radio technologies designed to increase the capacity and speed of mobile telephone networks. Where the current generation of mobile telecommunication networks are collectively known as 3G (for "third generation"), The LTE specification provides downlink peak rates of at least 100 Mbps, an uplink of at least 50 Mbps and RAN round-trip times of less than 10 ms. LTE supports scalable carrier bandwidths, from 20 MHz down to 1.4 MHz and supports both Frequency Division Duplexing and Time Division Duplexing.Part of the LTE standard is the System Architecture Evolution, a flat IP-based network architecture designed to replace the GPRS Core Network and ensure support for, and mobility between, some legacy or non-3GPP systems, for example GPRS and WiMax respectively,The Hspa ,Lte,and Wimax is designed for high speed packet data transfer
