Title: INTERWORKING WITH LEGACY RADIO ACCESS TECHNOLOGIES FOR CONNECTIVITY TO NEXT GENERATION CORE NETWORK
Abstract:
Aspects of the disclosure relate to mechanisms for interworking between legacy and next generation core networks in a communication network. In some examples, a connectivity request originated by a user equipment towards a legacy core network may be transferred to a next generation core network when the user equipment supports the radio access technology of the next generation core network.
