Title: HANDOVER NOTIFICATION
Abstract:
The present disclosure provides a method and system for handover notification between a source and a target node in a wireless communication network to facilitate a handover procedure for a User Equipment (UE). According to a broad aspect, the source node (112) monitors for a random access detect message from the target node (114) indicating that the UE initiated a random access procedure with the target node. When a random access detect message is received (136), the source node (112) can assume the UE has left the source cell and in response, take certain actions, e.g. terminate UE scheduling, initiate data forwarding toward the target node) to make the handover procedure more efficient.
