    Abstract: A method and apparatus for reconfiguring multimedia broadcast multicast service (MBMS) minimization of drive test (MDT) in a wireless communication system is provided. A user equipment (UE) receives a value tag for MBMS-MDT, and determines whether to perform MBMS-MDT reconfiguration by comparing the received value tag for MBMS-MDT with a stored value tag for MBMS-MDT. If the received value tag for MBMS-MDT and the stored value tag for MBMS-MDT are different from each other, the UE performs the MBMS-MDT reconfiguration. Alternatively, if a paging message includes an indicator of modification of the MBMS-MDT configuration, the UE acquires the MBMS-MDT configuration and performs the MBMS-MDT reconfiguration.

  • Publication number: 20170181051
    Abstract: The present specification suggests a method for establishing a terminal-centric group cell on the basis of measurement signal variation for cooperative transmission and handover in a mobile communication system. Specifically, a base station receives transmissions of parameters from a terminal, configures a terminal surrounding cell information table, and configures a cooperative cell cluster configuration table using the terminal surrounding cell information table as the terminal moves. The base station performs cooperative transmission and handover using the cooperative cell cluster configuration table. The terminal sends parameters to the base station periodically or when a certain condition is met, and the base station updates the terminal surrounding cell information table and the cooperative cell cluster configuration table using the parameters sent from the terminal to thereby use the same for mobility management.

    Abstract: A method is presented for controlling timers in a wireless communication system. When an idle mode signaling reduction (ISR) function of a user equipment (UE) is activated in the UE, a periodic tracking area update (P-TAU) timer and a periodic routing area update (P-RAU) timer are started. The P-TAU timer and the P-RAU timer run in the UE for updating a Mobility Management Entity (MME) and a Serving General packet radio service Support Node (SGSN) independently. The ISR function is activated when an update message activating the ISR function is received by the UE. When the P-TAU timer expires and the UE cannot initiate a tracking area update (TAU) procedure as a mobility management backoff (MM-BO) timer is running, a deactivate ISR timer corresponding to a first type network is started. The MM-BO timer is a timer configured to start when a MM-BO time value is received in the UE.
