Title: MAXIMUM BIT RATE CONTROL IN A MULTI-ACCESS NETWORK
Abstract:
The present invention relates to the control of a maximum bit rate in a multi-access network scenario that includes both a 3GPP access and a non~3GPP access. This maximum bit rate control is enforced in a wireless device (UE, 100) having a first radio access (110) and a second radio access (120) to a communications network, in particular an access node of a core network of said communications network, said first radio access (110) being a cellular communication access and said second radio access (120) being a non-cellular communication access, whereby the wireless device (UE, 100) receives (S110), via the first radio access (110) or the second radio access (120), a Multi-Access User Equipment Aggregated Maximum Bit Rate, Multi-Access-UE-AMBR, value and/or a User Equipment Aggregated Maximum Bit Rate, UE-AMBR, value for the second radio access; and ensures (S120) that a bit rate of traffic generated by the wireless device and/or received by the wireless device does not surpass said received Multi-Access-UE- AMBR and/or said UE-AMBR value for the second radio access.
