The purpose of the Handover Report procedure is to transfer mobility related information between eNBs controlling neighbouring cells (This was introduced in R9)

An eNB initiates the procedure by sending an HANDOVER REPORT message to another eNB controlling neighbouring cells. By sending the message eNB1 indicates to eNB2 that, following a successful handover from a cell of eNB2 to a cell of eNB1, a radio link failure occurred and the UE attempted RRC Re-establishment either at the original cell of eNB2 (Handover Too Early), or at another cell (Handover to Wrong Cell).
The report contains the source and target cells, and cause of the handover. If the Handover Report Type IE is set to "HO to wrong cell", then the Re-establishment cell ECGI IE shall be included in the HANDOVER REPORT message.

During X2-handover, In PDCP how to forward prepared packets which are not yet got ACK from UE and packets getting from SGW ?

Because why I getting this doubt is, Packets which are not got ACK all are prepared one means assigned PDCP SN but packets getting from SGW are SDU's means not assigned PDCP SN for those (we sent SN status info to Target eNB when handover triggered).how to differentiate these packets at target eNB which one is PDU and which one is SDU.
