Abstract: Due to heavy demand of data uses and exponential increase in mobile users mobile network is suffering from heavy traffic overload in the metropolitan area network. Therefore, due to congestion as well as network overload mobile users are experiencing coverage issues such as latency, network access and very low throughput. At present network operators are actually capping data usages and throttling in speed of connection have very negative impact on satisfaction of mobile users. In such a scenario alternate solutions are expected like access point (AP) based network can be used as a complementary network. In this paper we have proposed a seamless LTE-Wi-Fi architecture by using packet gateway in LTE and Wi-Fi for maintaining the seamless connectivity for users and Wi-Fi is used as a complementary network over LTE. This proposed architecture has ANQP-DS (Access network query protocol Data Server) and AZC (Access Zone Control) are two main components to Wi-Fi network for balancing and controlling the load of User equipment’s (UE) in between access points (AP). It can used as one of the mechanism in the LTE and Wi-Fi Integration Process.
