3G to LTE IP Addressing


Recommended Posts

Will devices maintain the same IP address handing off from 3g to LTE and vice versa? One of the problems with the WiMAX implementation is different networks / different IP addresses creates a not-so-seamless experience. The goofs up streaming music/video applications for example.

I am going to go out on a limb and assume they would be much much more seamless than the handoff b/w wimax and 3G. The WiMax handoff causes problems b/c its a different company your getting data from there so hence a different IP subnet and such...Since this is Sprints LTE I would assume the handoff b/w the 2 should be much more fluid than with WiMax...

 

someone will see this and correct me to the fullest though in a little while as im sure im not completely accurate there... :)

Theoretically, there shouldn't need to be a handoff. With LTE being laid out over the entire footprint of 3G and using 800 mhz to increase the range even further.

 

If one was to be handed off from LTE to eHRPD, you are correct Sgt, it would definitely be a smooth transition compared to that of WiMax to EVDO.

To my understanding there is no hand off between WiMax and 3G connections just drop.

 

Seems that way to me. It is the reason I never turn wimax on during my train ride to work. One single tunnel causes so much frustration as it goes from 4G>no signal>3G>finally back to 4G. As I try to load webpages at various times during that period.. If I leave it on 3G only it may bounce between 3G and 1x but I never really stop transmitting.

Websites for me are worthless when I lose 3G and go to 1x. I just give up and wait for 3G to come back.
