Outcomes / Target Audience
This paper introduces two important standards in networking policy – 3GPP Access Network Discovery and Selection Function (ANDSF) and Hotspot 2.0 Policy – and to propose a path toward convergence and improvement of these two policy standards with recommended actions. Both ANDSF and HS2.0 specifications define policy objects and protocols for intelligent and seamless automatic next-generation network selection and enhanced user experience.
