Title: METHOD, DEVICE AND SYSTEM FOR CONTROLLING TRANSMISSION MODE
Abstract:
Embodiments of the present invention relate to the communications field. Provided are a method, a device and a system for controlling a transmission mode. The method comprises: determining whether a rate that can be provided by a WiFi access point meets a rate required by a current service; if yes, determining and instructing a user equipment (UE) to use a WiFi mode to transmit the current service; and if no, determining and instructing the UE to use a cellular mode and the WiFi mode to transmit the current service. A base station comprises a determination module and a notification module. A UE comprises a receiving module, a determination module and a sending module. The system comprises the base station and the UE. The present invention implements controllability of a UE transmission mode, wherein controlling the UE to transmit in the WiFi mode can not only save energy of the UE but also provide transmission at a better rate for the UE, ensuring quality of service of the UE.
