Roaming
Roaming is an important functionality, where operators
share their networks with each others subscribers.

Typically roaming happens between operators serving
different areas, such as different countries, since this
does not cause conflicts in the competition between the
operators.

The words Home and Visited are used as prefixes to
many other architectural terms to describe where the
subscriber originates from and where it roams to
respectively

Inter Working - Non 3GPP

Inter-working with non-3GPP ANs was one of the key
design goals for SAE

The non-3GPP Inter-working System Architecture
includes a set of solutions in two categories:

Generic and Loose inter-working solutions

Specific and Tighter inter-working solution like one
selected access network(AN),the cdma2000
HRPD(High Rate Packet Data)

Inter-working with Other Access
