Title: CODING OF HANDOVER MESSAGES BETWEEN NODES OF DIFFERENT RADIO ACCESS TECHNOLOGIES
Abstract:
Techniques are provided for efficient handover of a user equipment (UE) between base stations that operate using different radio access technologies (RATs). A handover message to a UE may indicate that the UE is to be handed over from a source base station operating according to a first RAT to a target base station operating according to a second RAT. The handover message may be configured to be transmitted using the first RAT and include embedded information, that is transparent to the first RAT, for the handover to the target base station using the second RAT.
