Title: CORE NETWORK ATTACHMENT THROUGH STANDALONE NON-3GPP ACCESS NETWORKS
Abstract:
Apparatuses, methods, and systems are disclosed for attaching a remote unit (105) to a mobile core network (130) via a non-3GPP access network (110). One apparatus (400) includes a processor (405) that initiates a first authentication procedure with a remote unit (105) over the access network (110) and sends an attach request to the core network (130) on behalf of the remote unit (105). The processor (405) receives an attachment authentication request from the core network (130) and transforms the attachment authentication request into authentication request of the first authentication procedure. The processor (405) further uses an authentication response of the first authentication procedure to complete attachment to the core network (130). In certain embodiments, the apparatus (400) also includes first and second network interfaces (425, 430) that communicate with the remote unit (105) over the access network (110) and with the core network (130), respectively.
