Description / Abstract:

This standard defines several media independent services (MIS); handover, home energy management system (HEMS), software-defined radio access networks (SDRANs), radio resource management (RRM), and device-to-device (D2D) communication that shall be implemented in conjunction with the MIS framework as defined in IEEE Std 802.21™-2017 to optimize the performance of such services.


The purpose of this standard is to describe the media independent use cases and services, and when implemented using the framework described in IEEE Std 802.21-2017, the user experience and management of mobile devices can be greatly improved. The services described in this specification are applicable for interworking between IEEE 802® networks and non IEEE 802 networks (e.g., cellular networks).
