  • Publication number: 20170295520
    Abstract: A communication system is described in which a handover procedure is provided to allow a mobile device to transfer from a home base station connected to a core network via a home base station gateway to another base station not coupled via the home base station gateway. A novel extension to the handover procedure is provided in which the home base station gateway is informed of the transfer of the mobile device, allowing context and resources assigned to the mobile device at the base station gateway to be released.

  • Publication number: 20170295557
    Abstract: A method is provided in one example embodiment and may include determining that a periodic timer for a user equipment (UE) is about to expire; communicating to an application service, prior to expiration of the periodic timer for the UE, an indication associated with an availability of the UE to receive data from the application service; and communicating the data from the application service to the UE upon receiving the indication. In some cases, the method can include registering, by the application service, to receive the indication from a Mobility Management Entity (MME) or a serving General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) support node (SGSN), wherein the registering is performed via a service capability exposure function (SCEF) in communication with the MME or the SGSN and the application service.

  • Patent number: 9693205
    Abstract: An example method is provided in one example embodiment and may include configuring paging parameters for a group of one or more user equipment (UE) based, at least in part, on a group identifier (ID) for the group of one or more UE; communicating the paging parameters to each of the one or more UE of the group; and paging one or more idle mode UE of the group according to the paging parameters to transition the idle mode UE to a connected mode for receiving a group message. In some instances, configuring the paging parameters can include configuring a paging frame and paging occasion for the group of one or more UE based on the group ID; configuring extended paging cycle radio frames for the group of one or more UE; and/or configuring a paging group Radio Network Temporary Identifier for the group of one or more UE.

  • Publication number: 20160212798
    Abstract: Systems and methods for providing host-neutral small cells include communicating with a first User Equipment (UE) at a small cell. The first UE communicates with the small cell via a first Evolved Node B (eNodeB) base station associated with a first Evolved Packet Core (EPC). The small cell further communicates with a second UE. The second UE communicates with the small cell via a second eNodeB base station associated with a second EPC. Although a different wireless carrier may be associated with each of the first and second UEs, they may both communicate with the host-neutral small cell.

  • Patent number: 9398497
    Abstract: A user communications device having active and idle states operates in a cellular communications network in which user communications devices communicate via network communications devices of cells of the network. History data identifying the cells in which the user communications device has camped whilst in the idle mode or identifying the cells in which the mobile device has been connected whilst in the connected mode is maintained. This history data can be used to identify a home base station.

  • Publication number: 20160156548
    Abstract: Data to be transmitted to a user device may be received at a network device. It may be determined that the user device has network connectivity to the network device via a wide area wireless network connection and that the user device also separately has connectivity to the network device via a local area wireless network connection to an access point. The data may be split so that some portion of the data is to be transmitted by the wide area wireless network connection and another portion of the data is to be transmitted by the local area wireless network connection.

  • Publication number: 20160157293
    Abstract: A first network device may operate as a base station in a wireless wide area network (WWAN) and may establish a WWAN connection with a user device. A media access control (MAC) address of the user device may be obtained and sent to a second network device which operates an access point for a wireless local area network (WLAN). An acknowledgement containing a first service set identifier of the WLAN may be received from the second network device and sent to the user device to set up a secondary connection. An identifier for ordered data communication may used to enable in order communication through both the first and the second network devices. Data to be transmitted to the user device may be split into a first portion and a second portion, and transmitted through the WWAN connection and to the second network device for transmission to the user device via the WLAN respectively.
