Abstract: An SGW-C acquires correlation information in advance and retrieves an SGW-U corresponding to a tracking area of a movement destination of UE with reference to the correlation information. An MME issues a request for connection between the SGW-U retrieved by the SGW-C and an eNB. In this way, since the correlation information in which SGW-Us and tracking areas are correlated with each other is stored, it is possible to appropriately change a tracking area even in a situation in which a control plane and a user plane are separated.

Abstract: A mobile communication system 8 is a mobile communication system comprising a core network comprising a RAN 3 (a radio access network), an SM 2 (a session management function) that manages a session between a UE 4 (a mobile communication terminal) and an MM 1 (a mobility management function) that manages mobility of the UE 4, and the SM 2 comprises a communication path establishment unit 22 that establishes a communication path enabling communication between the SM 2 and a node of the RAN 3 without passing through the MM 1. The communication path establishment unit 22 may establish a communication path when the communication path establishment unit 22 receives the session construction request at the time of attachment of the UE 4 from the MM 1.
Abstract: In a communication system (1), when there is no access destination corresponding to a service type to be used by a piece of UE (50) in one of cellular communication and non-cellular communication, a retrieval unit (13) of a DB server (10) selects an access destination by referring to correspondence information in the other of the cellular communication and the non-cellular communication. Thus, when there is no access destination corresponding to the service type to be used by the UE (50) in one of the cellular communication and the non-cellular communication, the access destination corresponding to the service type is selected in the other of the cellular communication and the non-cellular communication. Therefore, it is possible to select an access destination suitable for the service type from both the cellular communication and the non-cellular communication.
Abstract: In a communication system (1), a communication service to be used by a piece of UE (30) that has requested access is identified, and an ePDG (40) or a PGW (60) is dynamically selected on the basis of the identified communication service. Thus, it is possible to appropriately provide a communication service requested by a user. Therefore, it is possible to dynamically select the ePDG (40) or the PGW (60) according to requirements of the service requested by the UE (30) (for example, requirements of a network for executing a service). Accordingly, it is possible to provide a suitable communication service to a user of the UE (30) who uses a plurality of services.
Abstract: In a communications system (1A), a communication service which is utilized by UE (10) is specified from among a first communication service and a second communication service, an address of a SGW (80) corresponding to a service type of the first communication service is retrieved when the specified communication service is the first communication service with reference to information in which the specified communication service and the address of the SGW (80) that transmits and receives data for utilizing the communication service are correlated with each other, and a SGW (80) other than a first communication control device is retrieved when the specified communication service is the second communication service.

Abstract: An interest degree determination device detects a gaze position of a first user included in a plurality of users on the basis of image information. When a second user other than the first user is present in the vicinity of the first user, the interest degree determination device determines whether the gaze position of the first user has been affected by the second user. The interest degree determination device stores a determination result of a determination unit and the gaze position of the first user in a storage unit so as to be associated with each other.
Abstract: A terminal connected to a plurality of user planes retains information on a tracking area where service areas of the plurality of user planes overlap each other as a tracking area identity list. When the terminal moves to the outside of a tracking area described in the tracking area identity list (a tracking area where a plurality of service areas overlap each other), the terminal transmits information on a tracking area after movement and an update request of the tracking area identity list to an MME. The MME creates, as a new tracking area identity list based on the update request, information on a tracking area where service areas in a plurality of user planes overlap in which a tracking area after movement is considered as a service area, and notifies the terminal of the new tracking area identity list for updating a current tracking area identity list.

Abstract: In a communication system in which a plurality of bearers are set up between UE and one or more PGWs, a PGW measures an idle time for each bearer and determines whether or not the measured idle time has reached an idle timer threshold value which is determined in advance for each of the plurality of bearers (Step 1). Then, when it is determined that the idle time for one bearer, for example, bearer 2, has reached the idle timer threshold value (Step 2), a PGW2 requests an MME to release bearer 2 via an SGW2 (Steps 3 and 4), and the MME performs a process of releasing bearer 2 in response to the request (Step 5 and the like).
Abstract: A slice allocating method capable of dynamically changing a service and a slice to be allocated to the service is provided. An OSS/BSS holds allocation service information in which a service to which a slice has been allocated is associated with the slice. Further, a request reception unit of the OSS/BSS receives an SLA-SL which is a requirement of a function. An allocation determination unit determines a slice having an SLA-SL corresponding to a service requirement of the received service. When the service of the slice determined by the allocation determination unit is the same as the service associated with the slice in advance, an allocation request unit reallocates the service to the determined slice.
