  • Patent number: 11889472
    Abstract: A wireless communication network pages a wireless communication device over Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) access points. To send the page, a WIFI gateway identifies WIFI networks that serve the wireless user device. The WIFI gateway determines individual ones of the Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) access points to page the wireless user device based on the individual ones of the WIFI networks that serve the wireless user device. The WIFI gateway indicates the OFDM access points to a paging system. The paging system receives a page for the wireless user device and responsively transfers the page to a current one of the OFDM access points indicated by the WIFI gateway.
