  • Publication number: 20180270741
    Abstract: An MME detects that a PDN connection is not effective and changes a non-optimal gateway as an end point node of the PDN connection to a more optimal gateway. This configuration allows an already-established PDN connection to switch to a new PDN connection using the more optimal gateway, which achieves optimal communication control for continuing communication of UE.

  • Patent number: 10064157
    Abstract: A mobile node includes a plurality of transceivers, has a network conforming to network-based mobility as its home link and performs position registration to a positional managing apparatus and performs position registration to the position managing apparatus through a foreign network by position registration conforming to host-based mobility. In mobile node and position managing apparatus, a plurality of routes passing through the home link and the foreign link are established. Accordingly, when the mobile node has the plurality of transceivers, it can simultaneously connect to the home link and the foreign link through respective transceivers, to perform communication.

  • Publication number: 20180234792
    Abstract: An MME detects that a PDN connection is not effective and changes from a non-optimal gateway to a bearer established in a PDN connection using a more optimal gateway as an endpoint node. This configuration allows an already-established PDN connection to switch to a new PDN connection using the more optimal gateway, which achieves optimal communication control for continuing communication of UE.

  • Publication number: 20180167854
    Abstract: A user equipment (UE) transmits a packet data network (PDN) connectivity request message to a mobility management entity (MME), receives a PDN connectivity accept message, and establishes a PDN connection with a second local gateway (LGW) in accordance with the PDN connectivity accept message. Thus, it is possible to provide a communication system and the like for a purpose of implementing the optimal communication control for enabling the UE to continue communication by switching a previously established PDN connection to a new PDN connection using a more optimal gateway.
