Title
(EN) PROVIDING SERVICES AT A COMMUNICATION NETWORK EDGE
(FR) FOURNITURE DE SERVICES À LA PÉRIPHÉRIE D'UN RÉSEAU DE COMMUNICATION
Abstract
(EN)
As the proliferation of data rich content and increasingly more capable mobile devices has continued, the amount of data communicated over mobile operator's networks has increased. Upgrading the existing network that was designed for voice calls is not desirable or practical for many mobile operators. This disclosure relates to a mobility edge gateway that resides on the edge of the core network and can provide one or more services such as call localization, offloading of traffic, session management, and content streaming. The call localization involves identifying calls that can be maintained at the edge of the network and bridging the calls at the mobility edge gateway to bypass the core network. The offloading involves identifying traffic and offloading the traffic to the Internet or another network to bypass the core network. These services can relieve congestion on the core network of mobile operator's networks.
(FR)
Du fait de la prolifération de contenus riches en données et de dispositifs mobiles de plus en plus performants, la quantité de données communiquées sur les réseaux des opérateurs mobiles a augmenté. Il n'est pour la plupart des opérateurs mobiles ni souhaitable ni pratique de mettre à niveau leur réseau existant qui a été conçu pour des appels vocaux. La présente invention concerne une passerelle de périphérie de mobilité qui réside à la périphérie du réseau central et peut fournir un ou plusieurs services tels que localisation des appels, externalisation du trafic, gestion des sessions et diffusion de flux de contenus. La localisation des appels consiste à identifier les appels qui peuvent être maintenus à la périphérie du réseau et à réorienter les appels par la passerelle de périphérie de mobilité pour contourner le réseau central. L'externalisation consiste à identifier le trafic et à externaliser le trafic vers internet ou un autre réseau pour contourner le réseau central. Ces services peuvent remédier à la congestion du réseau central des opérateurs de réseaux mobiles.
