This TR describes the architectural aspects of specific UTRAN and E-UTRAN base stations, known as Home NodeBs and Home eNodeBs, which provide services in e.g. residential or enterprise deployments.
Note: This feasibility study has led to normative modifications of various specifications; the contents of this TR should therefore be considered out of date.
To achieve this, the objectives are to (a) document the architectural assumptions taken by other working groups as part of their previous and ongoing work on Home Node B/Home eNodeB and Closed Subscriber Groups (CSG), and to (b) identify any outstanding issues not properly addressed in Rel-8.
Starting from the resulting architectural baseline, the intention is to derive architectural requirements arising from the outstanding Rel-8 issues and the Rel-9 requirements on Home NodeB and Home eNodeB as laid down by SA WG1 in TS 22.220
. Based on this, the objective is to discuss and conclude on solutions for the architectural issues arising from those requirements.
