GERAN is a result of over a decade of radio interface evolution that is still ongoing. While GERAN is or is being
deployed worldwide also in emerging markets, evolving further the GERAN radio interface needs to be studied to
ensure not only that the same services are available regardless of the underlying radio technology UTRAN or GERAN,
but essentially that service continuity exists across these radio technologies supported by core network evolution
e.g. IMS. Such an evolution is also needed to maintain GERAN competitiveness as well as UTRAN competitiveness.
This TR is an output of the 3GPP work item "Future GERAN Evolution".
Its scope is to capture the results of the feasibility study on the GERAN, the objectives of which are to: increase capacity, coverage and data rates; reduce latency; and enhance service continuity with other RATs; while minimising impacts to infrastructure.
