  • Publication number: 20190349879
    Abstract: In the present invention, in a case that an AE requests to change a registrar CSE from a first CSE to a second CSE, an AE-ID, a resource ID of an AE management resource, and a CSE-ID of the registrar CSE, or one of these, is included in a re-registration request. This enables reuse of the AE management resource, thus allowing the amount of communication between the AE and the registrar CSE to be reduced.
