  • Patent number: 9877140
    Abstract: A radio device, comprising an application scheduling unit configured to initiate a transmission of application output data in communication with a radio access network in accordance with a predetermined application transmission schedule determining at least one allowed time, which is a time span or a point in time, for the communication of the application output data. The allowed time depends on a parameter value of a set of at least one parameter that is allocated to the radio device and that is suitable for distinguishing the radio device from at least one other radio device of a group of radio devices to which the radio device belongs. A communication unit is configured to transmit the application output data in communication with the radio access network in the form of radio signals and at a time that is in accordance with the predetermined transmission schedule.

  • Patent number: 9392397
    Abstract: An application device exchanges application data via a cellular radio communication network with an application server. The application device has a memory providing write access for a control entity associated with the network. The application device receives an information element from a network management node operated by the control entity. The information element is indicative of regulation information that defines at least one time span or point in time that can be used for transmission of application exchange data between the application device and the application server. The application device receives an instruction from the network management node to store the regulation information in the device memory, and stores the regulation information. The application device subsequently initiates transmission of the application exchange data between the application device and the application server only at an allowed time that is in accordance with the stored regulation information.

  • Publication number: 20140369296
    Abstract: The invention relates to a radio device, comprising: a communication unit, which is configured to communicate with an allocated access-cell node of an access cell of a cellular radio access network; a transmission scheduling unit, which is configured to initiate transmissions of application data between the radio device and the access-cell node in accordance with a predetermined application transmission schedule defining at least one allowed transmission time span, in terms of a week, a day or a time of day for the transmission of the application data, to select a point in time for initiating the transmission of the application data within the respective current allowed transmission time span in dependence on a traffic condition to be fulfilled.
