Title: NETWORK LOAD CONTROL
Abstract:
The embodiments herein relate to a method in a mobility management entity, MME (203), for handling signaling overload in a communications network (200). The MME (203) is connected to a plurality of radio base stations (205). The MME (203) comprises at least a connection to a first radio base station (205a) and a connection to a second radio base station (205b). The first radio base station (205a) and second radio base station (205b) are comprised in the plurality of radio base stations (205). The MME (203) obtains(301, 701) priority information associated with the first radio base station (205a) and the second radio base station (205b) indicating whether the first radio base station (205a) and the second radio base station (205b) can be disconnected from the MME (203) to reduce signaling load in case of a signaling overload.
