  • Patent number: 11363560
    Abstract: The present invention has an object to provide a communication system capable of avoiding congestion in downlink communication or uplink communication and a shortage of radio resources arising therefrom. In the present invention, in a communication system including a normal user equipment (normal UE) that performs human to human communication and a machine type communication device (MTCD) that performs machine to machine communication, a base station device transmits a paging message to the normal UE and the MTCD for calling the normal UE and the MTCD. The paging message contains, for example, an equipment identity (UE-ID). A maximum number of equipment identities (UE-IDs) that can be accommodated within this paging message is set individually for the normal UE and the MTCD. Alternatively, the paging message contains a calling indicator in place of the equipment identity of the MTCD (UE-ID of MTCD).

  • Patent number: 11356865
    Abstract: A communication system is provided that, if a large number of small cells are installed, is capable of configuring an operation suitable for small cells through simple operation and administration. If a small cell installed in Step ST1401 judges in Step ST1403 that a coverage macro cell, which includes the small cell in the coverage of the coverage macro cell, is present as a result of neighbor cell search in Step ST1402, notifies the coverage macro cell and another neighbor cell of its own capability in Steps ST1404 and 1405. The coverage macro cell selects a configuration parameter suitable for the capability of the small cell in Step ST1406 and notifies the small cell in Step ST1407. The small cell recognizes an operation mode configured by the coverage macro cell from the configuration parameter notified from the coverage macro cell, and then, starts operating in the operation mode.

  • Patent number: 11350345
    Abstract: A closed subscriber group (CSG) cell is a cell that allows use of subscribers. In order to receive the service by the CSG cell, a CSG-ID is required to be notified to a user equipment, which cannot be obtained in a situation outside the reach of radio waves from a non-CSG cell. In a mobile communication system including base stations respectively provided to a CSG cell and a non-CSG cell in which access is made to the CSG cell with the use of a CSG-ID issued in a case where use of the CSG cell is allowed, the base station provided in the CSG cell refers to the notified identification information of a user equipment and then transmits a tracking area update request from the user equipment to a core network, and the core network determines whether the user equipment is allowed to use the CSG cell and, in the case where the use is allowed, transmits a signal for allowing assignment of radio resources to the user equipment and the CSG-ID. The user equipment accesses the CSG cell with the use of the CSG-ID.

  • Publication number: 20220167214
    Abstract: In a communication system according to the present invention, a UE and an MeNB perform both a direct communication and a communication through a SeNB. Along with moving of the UE, a handover process of switching the MeNB to which the UE is connected, from an S-MeNB to a T-MeNB is performed. The connection between the UE and the SeNB is maintained during the handover process. The UE starts transmitting data to the SeNB before a communication path between the UE and the MeNB is changed from a path formed by the S-MeNB and the UE to a path formed by the T-MeNB and the UE.

  • Publication number: 20220159704
    Abstract: Provided is a communication system capable of suppressing increase in the power consumption of a communication terminal device, degradation in the communication quality, and reduction in the use efficiency of radio resources. A base station device (gNB) notifies a communication terminal device (UE) of information on the next reception timing. The UE receives, for example, a downlink control signal in a subframe. The UE obtains, from the downlink control signal, information on a piece of user data in the subframe, and the information on the next reception timing. The UE transmits and receives the piece of user data to and from the gNB. The information on the next reception timing indicates a subframe as the next reception timing of the UE. The UE receives a downlink control signal in the subframe.

  • Patent number: 11324001
    Abstract: Provided is a communication system that can be normally and efficiently operated in the case where existing carriers and new carrier types coexist. A base station device and a communication terminal device are configured to perform communication in cells of legacy carriers LC1 to LC3 being existing carriers. When the base station device starts operating new carrier types NCT1 and NCT2, the NCT1 and NCT2 are associated with legacy carriers belonging to the same frequency band. For example, the NCT2 is associated with the LC2 or the LC3 and is not associated with the LC1. The legacy carriers LC1 to LC3 associated with the NCT1 and the NCT2 notify the communication terminal device of the information on the NCT1 and NCT2. This allows the communication terminal device to communicate with the NCT1 and the NCT2.

  • Publication number: 20220104307
    Abstract: A high-speed communication system etc. are provided in New Radio (NR) and LTE. When a secondary base station device detects a data inactive state for all bearers, the secondary base station device notifies a master base station device of occurrence of the data inactive state regardless of absence of an inquiry from the master base station device. The data inactive state is a state in which downlink data for a communication terminal device is inactive. When the master base station device receives the notification about the occurrence of the data inactive state, the master base station device transmits a command to the communication terminal device to transition from an RRC_CONNECTED state to an RRC_INACTIVE state. Based on the command from the master base station device, the communication terminal device transitions to the RRC_INACTIVE state.
