  • Publication number: 20220174775
    Abstract: Systems and methods for wireless device triggered connection resume with early data transmission are disclosed herein. In one embodiment, a method performed by a wireless device for triggering a connection resume with early data transmission comprises sending, to a radio access node, a first Radio Resource Control (RRC) message for resuming an RRC connection of the wireless device. The first RRC message comprises uplink data for early data transmission and Access Stratum (AS) Release Assistance Information (RAI). The AS RAI comprises information that indicates that no subsequent downlink and uplink data are expected, information that indicates that a single subsequent downlink data packet is expected, or information that indicates that multiple subsequent data packets are expected in downlink and/or uplink. The method further comprises receiving a second RRC message from the radio access node.

  • Patent number: 11297061
    Abstract: The embodiments herein relate to a method in a mobility management node (108) for handling overload in a communications network (100). When overload in the communications network (100) has been detected, the mobility management node (108) receives information indicating at least one blocked IP address to which access should be blocked. The mobility management node (108) receives a communication request message from a UE (101) via a RAN node (105). The communication request message is a request for communication by the UE (101). The mobility management node (108) determines that the UE's (101) request for communication should be rejected when the UE (101) is associated with a blocked IP address.

  • Patent number: 10805830
    Abstract: Various embodiments described herein aim to ensure that user data transmissions (e.g., small data transmissions that are sent using control plane messages) do not become excessive and stay infrequent, thereby reducing the likelihood of a network overload situation. In one embodiment, an admission control function (ACF) for regulating the transmission of uplink user data is implemented in a wireless communication device (WCD) (e.g., a CIoT device). Such a WCD device may receive from a core serving node (CSN) admittance information (AI) (e.g., parameters, such as thresholds, used by the ACF to regulate the uplink traffic) that is used in performing the admittance control.

  • Publication number: 20190394712
    Abstract: Systems and methods for network event reporting are provided. In some embodiments, a method performed by a first entity for reporting wireless device connectivity events includes determining that a connectivity event has occurred for a wireless device; and communicating to a second entity that the connectivity event has occurred for the wireless device. In this way, in some embodiments, reporting of PDN Connectivity creation and deletion can be made on request and does not need to be always enabled for a UE with a configured UE Reachability Monitoring Event. Also, in some embodiments, Application Servers know when they can communicate with a CIoT device. The new parameters provided to the Application Server, i.e., IP Address, PDN Type and/or APN of the PDN Connection, also inform the Application Server how to communicate with the CIoT device.
