As I know, 5G network performs signal quality measurements on BRS ( Beam reference signal ) from different 5G cells & in LTE 3GPP defines several set of predefined set of measurement report mechanism to be performed by UE called Event for handover(A1,A2..) based on RSRP/RSRQ.
In 5G, handovers are network controlled handover & UE based handover.
In network controlled handover-• UE receives handover information from serving cell (NB1).
• Next, UE performs quality measurements on BRSs (Beam Reference Signals) from neighbor cells.
• Once measurement event is triggered, UE sends measurement report to serving cell.
• serving cell replies with handover command containing RRC connection re-configuration along with target cell NB2.
• UE completes handover with target cell NB2 by transmitting "RRC connection reconfiguration complete".

UE based handover-
When UE receives measurement configuration from serving cell , it performs quality measurements on BRSs from neighboring cells.
• As per measurement event triggering, UE sends measurement report to serving cell .
• Serving cell responds UE with list of possible neighboring cells to complete the handover. This is provided in message "RRC connection reconfiguration".
• Serving cell provides measurement configuration for UE to complete the handover with target NBs.
• From the list of cells, UE selects the best cell for handover using "RRC Connection Reestablishment procedure". .

I went through a web material which was talking about connection less LTE network in which control place will be dis-aggregated from the user plane and data plane will not use GTP-U protocol. I want to know, after removing GTP-U from data plane, will there be any impact of existing procedures like UE state transition between Connected and IDLE states.

Now and days, people are talking about various features that are going to be implemented in LTE network under the umbrella of 5G.
I heard so many terms but one term "content caching", I could not understand completely. I understood content caching at the networ edge can avoid network congestion for a popular content. I want to know, how it is going to be implemented for the LTE network ?
