Title
(EN) Allocating addresses to mobile stations
Abstract
(EN)
A method of allocating an address to a mobile station operating in a wireless communication system is described in order to facilitate a communication link to a fixed communication system. The method is characterised by the steps of receiving (100) an address mapping inquiry from the fixed communication system; locating (102) a respective terminal identifier (58) of the mobile station in response to the supplied address mapping inquiry; and determining whether an address has been allocated for the mobile station. If an address has not been allocated to the mobile station, an address allocation request (112) is activated and an address corresponding to the respective terminal identifier (58) of the mobile station is allocated.
