Migration of existing access networks towards multi-radio access
2006 (English)In: IEEE Veh Technol Conf, 2006, 2987-2991 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Integration of heterogeneous access technologies to provide multi-radio access allows for dynamic access selection. The "always best connected" paradigm can increase system capacity and end user throughput, as well as, reduce the network deployment costs for multi-radio wireless networks. In this paper we present the functional entities Generic Link Layer and Multi-Radio Resource Management, and describe their interactions for access selection. A focus of the paper is to show - with an example given for 3G and WLAN - how existing wireless networks can be migrated to provide multi-radio access functionality. This will be explained for a single operator integrating different radio access standards, as well as, for multiple cooperating network operators.
