  • Publication number: 20210235539
    Abstract: A communication equipment for which an extended DRX is available negotiates with a management apparatus included in a network to acquire a configuration parameter of the extended DRX. The communication equipment checks whether the base station is for which the extended DRX is available based on notification information received from the base station. The communication equipment notifies the external equipment of an operation state indicating whether the communication equipment is performing an extended DRX operation based on whether a configuration parameter of the extended DRX is acquired and whether the base station is for which the extended DRX is available.

  • Publication number: 20100085942
    Abstract: There is provided a base station having a resource assigning unit for assigning QoS resources in response to a QoS setting request and a resource securing unit for securing, when a wireless communication terminal that is communicating with a base station by setting a QoS specifies the own base station as a handoff candidate base station, QoS resources by correlating to the wireless communication terminal. The resource assigning unit assigns, in the case where there are no QoS resources available when assigning QoS resources in response to the QoS setting request, the QoS resources that have been secured by the resource securing unit by correlating to the wireless communication terminal to a wireless communication terminal that has transmitted the QoS setting request.
