Title: METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR CONDUCTING A HANDOVER
Abstract:
A method for conducting a handover involves, according to various implementations, an access management function (e.g., executing on a computmg device that is part of a core network) receiving a handover required message from a source radio network, selecting a new session management function to manage the forwarding of protocol data units from a source radio access network to a target radio access network, receiving a path switch request message from the target radio access network, and triggering the session management function to switch the data path of the one or more protocol data unit sessions from the source radio access network to the target radio access network.
