Abstract
(EN)
The present invention provides a method for implementation in user equipment that is configured to communicate with a wireless communication system that includes macro-cells femtocells. The method includes determining a distance between the user equipment and the femtocell(s). The method also includes periodically transmitting first measurement reports from the user equipment to the macrocell(s) at a selected time interval. The first measurement reports include information indicating the distance between the user equipment and the femtocell(s). The method also includes receiving a request to hand off from the macrocell(s) to the femtocell(s). The request is generated by a radio network controller based on the periodicallytransmitted measurement reports.

L'invention concerne un procédé destiné à être mis en oeuvre dans un équipement utilisateur configuré pour communiquer avec un système de communication sans fil comprenant des macrocellules et des femtocellules. Ce procédé consiste à déterminer une distance entre l'équipement utilisateur et la/les femtocellule(s). Ce procédé consiste également à transmettre périodiquement des premiers rapports de mesure de l'équipement utilisateur à la/aux macrocellule(s) selon un intervalle de temps déterminé. Les premiers rapports de mesure contiennent des informations indiquant la distance entre l'équipement utilisateur et la/les femtocellule(s). Le procédé selon l'invention consiste encore à recevoir une requête de transfert de la/des macrocellule(s) à la/aux femtocellule(s). La requête est générée par un contrôleur de réseau radio en fonction des rapports de mesure transmis périodiquement.
