  • Publication number: 20130331111
    Abstract: A wireless mobile communication method is provided. If a wireless mobile communication service arrives at a core network, the core network sends a paging signal to at least one macro base station and at least one Femto gateway. After the macro base station receives the paging signal, the macro base station pages the at least one mobile station within the coverage of the macro base station. The Femto gateway blocks the paging signal sent from the core network, so that the at least one Femto base station covered by the Femto gateway does not page the mobile station. After a destination mobile station receives the paging signal, the destination mobile station establishes a signaling connection, so that a call to a destination mobile station is established.

  • Patent number: 8526955
    Abstract: A movement predicting method is disclosed. The method utilizes at least one phone communicating in and moving between neighboring cells of base stations to predict population movement in a prediction interval. Firstly, obtain the traffic volumes in the cells generated by the phone and the handover information generated by the phone moving between the cells in a day. Next, calculate the traffic volumes and the handover information to obtain a movement probability for the population moving between the cells and an average residence time that the population stays in the region of each cell in the different periods of the day. Finally, according to the data obtained, predict an appearance probability that the population appears in each region at the end point of the prediction interval.

  • Patent number: 8050678
    Abstract: Disclosed is an apparatus and method for executing the handoff process in the wireless networks. The apparatus comprises a processor to execute an identity checking mechanism. When a wireless network station wants to move from a source AP to a destination AP, the wireless network station sends an authentication request message to the destination AP. The identity checking mechanism searches a R0KH table of the destination AP for the R0KH ID contained in the authentication request message, and determines a setting parameter for executing a handoff process. Thereby, the wireless network station may execute the handoff process. A R0KH table of an AP consists of all IDs of R0KHs that can be accessed by the AP.
