  • Publication number: 20190182803
    Abstract: A wireless device, a first network node and methods therein, for supporting or performing distribution of paging messages within a Radio Access Network Area, RANA, of a wireless network. The wireless device collects RANA related information from network nodes visited by the wireless device. The RANA related information indicates which RANAs are supported by the respective network nodes. A list of network nodes that support a RANA is extracted from the collected RANA related information, and the list is sent to the first network node to enable distribution of paging messages by the first network node within the RANA.

  • Patent number: 10321287
    Abstract: A method and arrangement for exchanging service and RAN information. In a communication network a service providing element is enabled to adapt delivery of a service based on RAN-related parameters. The communication network comprises a RAN (Radio Access Network) node, a core network node, and the service providing element. The RAN node obtains a RAN-related parameter and sends the RAN-related parameter to the service providing element via the core network node. The core network node receives the RAN-related parameter from the RAN node, re-structures the RAN-related parameter into a data structure readable by the service providing element, and sends the re-structured RAN-related parameter to the service providing element. The service providing element is configured to receive the RAN-related parameter, and adapt a service delivery parameter based on the RAN-related parameter.

  • Patent number: 10313208
    Abstract: The disclosure relates to a method of resource allocation for supporting communications with a wireless device is provided. The method is performed in a network element of a wireless communication network. The method comprises differentiating (2710) between synchronous network functions and asynchronous network functions. The synchronous and asynchronous network functions are associated with the provision of communication services to the wireless device. The synchronous network functions have requirements on processing timing which are strictly dependent on timing of a radio link used for communicating with the wireless device. The asynchronous network functions have requirements on processing timing not strictly dependent on the timing of the radio link. The method also comprises allocating (2720) resources of the wireless communication network for the instantiation of a first network function based on whether the first network function is synchronous or asynchronous.
