  • Publication number: 20220053581
    Abstract: A private network is flexibly built while ensuring physical or logical separation from a public network. A base station device notifies system information including a first identifier corresponding to a communication network (for example, PLMN) in an identifier list. In that state, a second identifier used locally is added to the identifier list of the system information according to control information from a control device. Thereafter, notification of the system information including the first and second identifiers in the identifier list is started. Therefore, the private network is built.
