  • Publication number: 20210242970
    Abstract: A terminal device is operative to receive a broadcast message (91) from a cellular network, the broadcast message (91) including at least one bit associated with coverage enhancement, CE, operation of the terminal device. The terminal device is operative to control, when the terminal device is in CE operation, a radio interface to selectively delay, based on the at least one bit included in the broadcast message (91), a CE level dependent repetition of a random access preamble transmission (93, 94).

  • Patent number: 10983189
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method for determining a position of a terminal device (110) in a wireless communication system (100). According to the method, a first message (130-133) is broadcasted by the terminal device (110). The first message (130-133) comprises a positioning request and a terminal identifier identifying the terminal device (110). The first message (130-133) is received at a group of neighboring devices (120-123). Each neighboring device of the group of neighboring devices (120-123) is located within a wireless radio communication range of the terminal device (110). From one or more neighboring devices (120, 121) of the group of neighboring devices (120-123) a corresponding second message (140, 141) is transmitted to location server (103) of the wireless communication system (100). The second message (140, 141) comprises the terminal identifier and an indication that the terminal device (110) requested a positioning.

  • Publication number: 20200404562
    Abstract: Determining whether service via a core network of the first type is available from the second cell. The method further comprises establishing a connection via the second cell by transmitting a message including a first indication, the first indication based on at least a portion of the identifier, and when service via a core network of the first type is not available from the second cell, transmitting in the message a second indication, the second indication indicating that the identifier was received from a core network different from the second type, without identifying the first type of core network.

  • Publication number: 20200366732
    Abstract: A method of operating a terminal (130), comprising: transmitting, to a master control node (290) of an edge computing architecture (299), a configuration request message (7001), the configuration request message (7001) being indicative of at least one of a connectivity status of the terminal (130) indicative of an access network and a location of the terminal (130), receiving, from the master control node (290), a configuration response message (7002) indicative of an edge computing system (260-267), and executing an edge computing application (4001, 4002) using the edge computing system (260-267).

  • Publication number: 20190028917
    Abstract: In response to a need for communication of uplink data on the radio link of a wireless network between a terminal and a node, participation in a setup procedure for establishing a data connection on the radio link takes place. A first control message indicative of a delay requirement of the uplink data is communicated during the setup procedure. During the setup procedure and in response to said communicating of the first control message, a second control message is selectively communicated which rejects the data connection.

  • Patent number: 8739258
    Abstract: A wireless communication device provides a method of certificate-based access control. Particularly, the device establishes a secure communications session with a device management server. Rather than use access control lists to control access to the functions and services on the device, however, the device uses the certificate that was employed to establish the secure session to control access.
