  • Publication number: 20170339589
    Abstract: There are provided measures for enabling/realizing network-controlled terminal data call performance testing, e.g. controlling terminal data call performance testing using network-related control signaling. Such measures exemplarily include establishment of a network connection between a radio access network entity and at least one terminal for a data call performance test using network-related control signaling, configuration of the data call performance test at the terminal using network-related control signaling, execution of a test data call between the radio access network entity and the at least one terminal over the established network connection, and report and acquisition of results of the data call performance test for the terminal using network-related control signaling.

  • Patent number: 9622286
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention relate to reduction of radio connectivity of a bearer service. Upon detection of low data transfer activity within a bearer service, radio connectivity of the bearer service is reduced so as to reduce signaling overhead in an air interface. However, a core network connection of the bearer service is maintained.
