Title (EN) METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR MANAGING HANDOFF IN A RADIO ACCESS NETWORK
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET SYSTÈME DE GESTION DE TRANSFERT DANS UN RÉSEAU D'ACCÈS RADIO
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Disclosed is a method and device for managing handoff of an access terminal (104) in a radio access network RAN. An access terminal (104) may detect a handoff trigger (304), determine whether there is an ongoing data transfer in progress (306), determine an amount remaining in the data transfer (308), compare the amount remaining to a threshold amount (310), and delay or cancel the handoff (312) if the amount remaining is below the threshold amount. Additionally, the access terminal may consider signal strength of the current (source) coverage area in determining whether to delay or cancel the handoff.
(FR)L'invention porte sur un procédé et un dispositif de gestion de transfert d'un terminal d'accès (104) dans un réseau d'accès radio (RAN). Un terminal d'accès (104) peut détecter un déclencheur de transfert (304), déterminer s'il existe un transfert de données continu en cours (306), déterminer une quantité restante dans le transfert de données (308), comparer la quantité restante à une quantité seuil (310), et retarder ou annuler le transfert (312) si la quantité restante est inférieure à la quantité seuil. De plus, le terminal d'accès peut considérer une intensité de signal de la zone de couverture courante (source) dans la détermination de retarder ou d'annuler le transfert ou non.
