    Abstract: Provided are a method and an apparatus for transmitting a maximum stratum level in a wireless communication system. An evolved NodeB (eNB) or a home eNB (HeNB) having a global positioning system (GPS) constitutes a maximum stratum level indicating a maximum value of a hop capable of supporting radio interface based synchronization (RIBS) and transmits the constituted maximum stratum level to a small cell. Meanwhile, the small cell determines whether a stratum level is greater than the maximum stratum level, and transmits the maximum stratum level to the eNB or the HeNB having the GPS when the stratum level is greater than the maximum stratum level.

  • Patent number: 9573786
    Abstract: A diverter, medium handling apparatus and financial devices using the same are provided. The diverter comprises a rotation shaft, at least one first blade connected to the rotation shaft to rotate together with the rotation shaft, and one or more second blades idly coupled to the rotation shaft. When the rotation shaft rotates to divert a transfer path of a medium, each of the second blades rotates after the first blade rotates at a predetermined angle. According to the diverter, the medium handling apparatus, the financial device, the diverter may prevent a jam generated when a unstable medium that is crumpled or bent collides with the rotation shaft disposed in a branch part on the transfer path from occurring and prevent the medium from being torn. Therefore, the financial device may be easy to maintenance and prevent the medium from being jammed and torn to minimize inconvenience to the user.
