1. A method for wireless communication, comprising:
providing, by a base station and to a user equipment (UE) via a first communication link that uses a first radio access technology (RAT), information that identifies a threshold associated with a second communication link that uses a second RAT;
receiving, by the base station from the UE via the first communication link, a message including an access point identifier of an access point that communicates using the second RAT and that satisfies the threshold;
updating, by the base station, a list of access point identifiers of access points that use the second RAT and to which the UE is permitted to connect to include the access point identifier; and
providing, by the base station, an instruction that permits the UE to connect to, roam to, or disconnect from a respective access point corresponding to one of the list of access point identifiers of access points that use the second RAT.
