Summary: 
Seamless interconnection with wireless LAN and 3G technologies is essential for the future wireless environment. The Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) integrated mobile device is designed to extend the reach of enterprise applications and to create new collaboration environments. Also rapid new service development has started to change traffic mixes in the cellular networks towards IP dominating carriers like GPRS (General Packet Radio Service) and WLAN. These drastic changes require new research in the network as well as system inter-working areas for both the cellular and WLAN technology areas. This is the main challenge our research is trying to solve giving answers to rising inter-working and interoperability questions.
