  • Patent number: 10390181
    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.

  • Publication number: 20190230734
    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).

  • Patent number: 10356663
    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.

  • Publication number: 20190190784
    Abstract: A storage request accepting unit 11 acquires correspondence information in which a service, a slice, and context information are associated with each other. A status acquiring unit 13 acquires positional information of a UE 130 and identifies staying information from the positional information. An assignment unit 14 assigns a slice corresponding to a service used by the UE 130 and context information represented by the correspondence information. In this case, a slice management device 10 assigns a slice to a service in accordance with the context information such as a staying status or the like of the UE 130, and accordingly, a slice assigned to the service can be dynamically changed.

  • Publication number: 20190163799
    Abstract: A database management system (DBMS) performs, in response to a conversion request to convert a store format of a table in a database, a process (base type change process) for changing a store format indicated by information (base type) indicating the store format of the table to a store format according to the conversion request, and performs a data conversion process asynchronously with the aforementioned process. In an import process after the base type change process, the DBMS imports, into the table, a chunk in the store format indicated by the base type after change. In the data conversion process, the DBMS converts a chunk in a store format different from the store format indicated by the base type into a chunk in the store format indicated by the base type.
