  • Publication number: 20190069328
    Abstract: A communication system is disclosed in which a communication device establishes and engages in Voice over LTE (VoLTE) communication via a communication connection with a base station. The communication device obtains information indicating at least one criterion for determining whether VoLTE communication via the communication connection with the base station can be sustained. The communication device performs signal measurements for signals received from the base station and determines whether VoLTE communication via the communication connection with the base station can be sustained based on whether or not the signal measurements meet the at least one criterion.

  • Publication number: 20180332646
    Abstract: A system is disclosed in which a mobile communication device establishes device-to-device (D2D) communication with another mobile communication device, and searches for a communication network whilst engaged in the D2D communication. When it finds a communication network, the mobile communication device indicates that it is engaged in the D2D communication. The mobile communication device continues, or does not continue, the D2D communication based on an authorisation by the communication network.

  • Publication number: 20180242357
    Abstract: A communication system is disclosed in which a communication device communicates with communication apparatus that operates a cell within which the communication device is located. The cell is operated as a licensed assisted access (LAA) cell and has an associated physical uplink control channel (PUCCH). The communication device has a controller that is adapted to: generate a control signal for transmitting to said communication apparatus; perform a clear channel assessment (CCA) on said PUCCH before the control signal is transmitted; and block transmission of the control signal on said PUCCH when said CCA indicates that said channel is not clear. The communication device is further adapted, when said controller has not blocked said transmission of the control signal, to transmit the control signal to said communication apparatus in said PUCCH.

  • Publication number: 20180227815
    Abstract: A communications system is described in which a base station controls interworking between a cell of the base station operating according to a first radio access technology and cells of access points operating according to a second radio access technology. The base station transmits control plane data to a mobile device in its cell, wherein the control plane data facilitates user plane communication by the mobile device, via a first access point. When the user plane communication has been handed over from the first access point to a second access point, the base station receives information identifying the second access point. Beneficially, the base station uses the received information for controlling the interworking and/or controlling a handover for the mobile device.
