IP Connectivity Access Network (IP-CAN)

IP Connectivity Access Network (IP-CAN) are network entities and interfaces that provide the underlying IP transport connectivity between the user endpoint and the IMS entities. The term is usually used in cellular context and usually refers to 3GPP access networks such as GPRS or EDGE, but can be also used to describe wireless LAN (WLAN) or DSL networks.
