Title
(EN) AUTOMATIC BASE STATION CONFIGURATION
(FR) CONFIGURATION DE STATION DE BASE AUTOMATIQUE
Abstract
(EN)
A basestation in a cellular communications network is configured such that it has a different Location Area Identification from other local basestations in the cellular network. This has the effect that a Location Area Update procedure is performed when a mobile device wishes to camp onto that basestation. The basestation is able to configure itself automatically, to ensure that its Location Area Identification differs from other local basestations.
(FR)
Selon l'invention, une station de base dans un réseau cellulaire de communications est configurée de façon à avoir un identifiant de zone de localisation différent d'autres stations de base locales présentes dans le réseau cellulaire. Ainsi, une procédure de mise à jour de zone de localisation est effectuée lorsqu'un dispositif mobile souhaite se connecter à ladite station de base. La station de base est conçue pour se configurer automatiquement afin d'assurer que son identifiant de zone de localisation est différent d'autres stations de base locales.
