    Abstract: An apparatus comprising at least one processor and at least one memory including computer program code. The at least one memory and the computer program code are configured to, with the at least one processor, cause the apparatus to receive an initial user equipment message from a target cell, transmit an initial context setup request message to the target cell including one or more service indicators, receive an initial context setup response message from the target cell, and calculate a drop ratio associated with a double S1 connection based upon a number of abnormal radio access bearer releases subtracted from a number of radio access bearer releases associated with the successful double S1 connection divided by a total number of radio access bearer releases. The one or more service indicators are determined based upon the received initial user equipment message.

  • Publication number: 20180241630
    Abstract: A method and apparatus may include transmitting a scaling request. The scaling request comprises a request for virtualized network function expansion or virtualized network function contraction. The scaling request is transmitted to a second network node. A first domain is directed to application level details. A second domain is directed to virtualization level details. The scaling request comprises: (1) a relative target capacity that is generic to both the first domain and the second domain, (2) an absolute target capacity that is specific to the first domain, or (3) a relative target capacity that is specific to virtualized network function level targets. The method may also include receiving a notification that a virtualization network function has been updated based on the transmitted scaling request.

  • Publication number: 20160105819
    Abstract: Various communication systems may benefit from methods, apparatuses, and systems for data collection. For example, wireless communication systems of the third generation partnership project (3GPP) may benefit from data collection in network management layer coverage and capacity optimization. For example, a method may include sending performance measurement job activation indicating that minimization of drive test data is to be collected (in an alternative, the job can be configured to indicate that non-MDT data is to be collected). The method may also include receiving performance measurements in response to the job activation.
