• Acronym: MultiRat-LWx
  • Short description: This functionality is an extension to the MultiRat-Coord functionality. It provides LTE-WiFi interworking functionalities such as LWA and LWIP specified by 3GPP (see Links for more resources). This extension provides the possibility to investigate tradeoffs between different interworking strategies compared to normal routing approaches.
