Title: METHOD FOR AN ENHANCED POWER CONSUMPTION MANAGEMENT OF A USER EQUIPMENT USING A MOBILE COMMUNICATION NETWORK, WHEREIN DIFFERENT SETS OF RADIO RESOURCES ARE USED IN DEPENDENCY OF A POWER CONSUMPTION INFORMATION, MOBILE COMMUNICATION NETWORK, PROGRAM COMPRISING A COMPUTER READABLE PROGRAM CODE, AND COMPUTER PROGRAM PRODUCT
Abstract:
The invention relates to a method for an enhanced power consumption management of a user equipment using a mobile communication network, wherein the mobile communication network comprises a core network and an access network, wherein the access network comprises a plurality of base station entities, wherein the user equipment is, at least temporarily, in communication exchange - in uplink and/or in downlink direction - with the mobile communication network using radio resources of the air interface between the user equipment and the access network such that a plurality of radio access technologies and/or a plurality of radio signal transmission schemes are able to be used for - transmitting uplink data from the user equipment towards the access network of the mobile communication network and/or - transmitting downlink data from the access network of the mobile communication network towards the user equipment, wherein the mobile communication network comprises a radio resource management entity, and wherein the method comprises the following steps: - in a first step, a set of first radio resources is assigned, by the radio resource management entity, to the user equipment for transmitting the uplink data and/or for receiving the downlink data, - in a second step, subsequent to the first step, a power consumption information is available to the radio resource management entity, the power consumption information being related to or indicative of the current power consumption of the user equipment using the assigned set of first radio resources, wherein the power consumption information indicates a current power consumption of the user equipment that is either superior to a predefined upper power consumption threshold or inferior to a predefined lower power consumption threshold, - in a third step, subsequent to the second step, a set of second radio resources is assigned, by the radio resource management entity, to the user equipment for transmitting the uplink data and/or for receiving the downlink data, wherein when using the set of second radio resources, the current power consumption of the user equipment using the assigned set of second radio resources corresponds to a power consumption in between the lower power consumption threshold and the upper power consumption threshold.
