ABSTRACT

This paper looks potential approaches to interoperability as well as inter-technology mobility using Long Term Evolution (LTE) between different generations of wireless communication. Focus is given on how these approaches can be used in interoperable service deployment, access technology integration, service continuity and smooth migration to LTE by maximizing the use of legacy networks coverage. One of the most important interoperability criterions is the handover latency. Using NCTUNS6 simulator it is shown that LTE (4G) provides less handover latency in comparison to that of other generations of wireless communication system for homogeneous environment.
