Low cost WLAN networks are very likely to be loosely coupled to high cost 3G networks in order to provide the 3G subscribers with an extended WLAN capacity and the WLAN subscribers with the 3G ubiquitous coverage. Considering the high signaling latency when handing off critical voice calls between the two loosely coupled networks, soft vertical handoff (VHO… CONTINUE READING
