  • Patent number: 11039352
    Abstract: A mechanism for controlling a measurement threshold used for triggering transition of a user equipment device (UE) from being connected with a first access node on a first carrier to being connected with the first access node instead on a second carrier. A determination is made as to whether the first carrier on which the UE is connected with the first access node is an anchor carrier for dual-connectivity service of the UE. And responsive to at least the determination being that the first carrier on which the UE is connected with the first access node is the anchor carrier for dual-connectivity service of the UE, the measurement threshold is adjusted from a default level to an adjusted level to help facilitate transition of the UE from being connected with the first access node on the first carrier to being connected with the first access node instead on the second carrier.
