Virtual Home Environment (VHE)

In mobile computing, the Virtual Home Environment (VHE) is the concept that a network supporting mobile users should provide them the same computing environment on the road that they have in their home or corporate computing environment. VHE is part of IMT-2000 and the Universal Mobile Telecommunication Service Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS). With VHE, a network (referred to as a foreign network) emulates the behavior of the user's home network and the user has the same services that they are accustomed to at home.
