Title (EN) LOCATION-ASSISTED NETWORK ENTRY, SCAN, AND HANDOVER
(FR) ENTRÉE RÉSEAU BASÉE SUR UN EMPLACEMENT, BALAYAGE ET TRANSFERT
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Methods and apparatus for using a location of a mobile station (MS) to assist network entry and initialization, scanning, and/or handover operations in a radio access technology (RAT), such as WiMAX (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access), are provided. The location of the MS may be ascertained by determining the Global Positioning System (GPS) coordinates of the MS internally or by receiving the location from a GPS device external to the MS. Knowledge of the current or future location of the MS may reduce the amount of base station (BS) information transmitted to the MS; may reduce the power consumption and the amount of time spent during network entry, scanning, or handover; and may increase the bandwidth usage efficiency.
(FR)L'invention concerne des procédés et un appareil permettant d'utiliser un emplacement d'une station mobile (MS) pour faciliter l'entrée réseau et l'initialisation, le balayage et/ou les opérations de transfert dans une technologie d'accès radio (RAT) telle que le WiMAX (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access). L'emplacement de la MS peut être établi en déterminant les coordonnées GPS (système mondial de localisation) de la MS en interne ou en recevant l'emplacement d'un dispositif GPS externe à la MS. La connaissance de l'emplacement actuel ou futur de la MS permet de réduire la quantité d'informations de station de base (BS) transmises à la MS, de réduire la consommation d'énergie et la quantité de temps utilisée pour l'entrée réseau, le balayage ou le transfert, et d'augmenter l'efficacité d'utilisation de la bande passante.
