Title: INCREMENTAL COMPENSATION CELL EXPANSION DURING COMMUNICATIONS SYSTEM RADIO COVERAGE RECONFIGURATION
Abstract:
In a cellular communication system, a coverage area configuration transition includes incrementally expanding a compensation service area to include at least a portion of an area covered by the energy saving service area. For example, the compensation service area can be expanded to cover a first cell edge of an energy saving service area, and any UE devices located within the first cell edge can be handed over to the compensation service area. After the UE devices in the first cell edge are handed over, the energy saving service area can be reduced such that a second cell edge is created. The process of handing over the additional UE devices to the compensation service area and reducing the energy saving service area can be repeated as many times as necessary to handover all of the UE devices being served by the energy saving service area.
