The Purpose of this standard is to improve the user experience of mobile devices by describing a framework that provides the necessary services to facilitate handover between heterogeneous IEEE 802 networks. This framework is also applicable for interworking between IEEE 802 networks and Cellular networks.This standard defines an extensible IEEE 802(R) media access independent services framework (i.e., function and protocol) that enables the optimization of handover and other services (e.g., discovery) between heterogeneous IEEE 802 networks. It also facilitates these services when networking between IEEE 802 networks and cellular networks.
