IEEE 802.21c-2014 - IEEE Standard for Local and metropolitan area networks-- Part 21: Media Independent Handover Services - Amendment 3: Optimized Single Radio Handovers
Additional IEEE 802(R) media access independent mechanisms that optimize handovers between possibly heterogeneous IEEE 802 systems and between IEEE 802 systems and cellular systems to enable improved handover performance for single-radio devices are specified in this standard.
IEEE 802.21d-2015 - IEEE Standard for Local and metropolitan area networks -- Part 21: Media Independent Handover Services Amendment 4: Multicast Group Management
Mechanisms to enable multicast group management for MIH services is specified in this standard. The specification defines management primitives and messages that enable a user to join, leave or update group membership and security mechanisms to protect multicast communication.
IEEE 802.21-2017 - IEEE Standard for Local and metropolitan area networks--Part 21: Media Independent Services Framework
An extensible IEEE 802(R) media access independent services framework (i.e., function and protocol) is defined that enables the optimization of services including handover and other services when performed between heterogeneous IEEE 802 networks. These services are facilitated by this standard when networking between IEEE 802 networks and cellular networks.
