A neutral host network (NHN) is a mobile network in which wireless coverage is provided by infrastructure that is shared across operators. A neutral host network may provide mobile services such as LTE over unlicensed spectrum. The sharing of infrastructure and use of unlicensed spectrum produces cost savings for operators, which in turn lowers end-user cost.
This disclosure provides techniques for a mobile device to seamlessly transition data carriers between the network of a traditional service provider and an NHN without impacting voice connectivity.
