Title: METHODS AND DEVICES FOR SUPPORTING RELEASE OF SIPTO BEARER OR LIPA BEARER IN DUAL-CONNECTIVITY ARCHITECTURE
Abstract:
The present disclosure discloses a method for supporting release of a SIPTO bearer or a LIPA bearer in dual-connectivity architecture. The method is implemented as follows. A MeNB sends a message to a SeNB. The message contains indication information for SIPTO at local network bearer deactivation or LIPA bearer deactivation. The indication information may indicate the SeNB to notify a collocated LGW of releasing PDN connection of SIPTO at local network or the PDN connection of LIPA. After receiving the message, the SeNB removes radio and control plane related resources associated to the UE context or the SIPTO at local network bearer or the LIPA bearer, and if the message contains the indication information for SIPTO@LN bearer deactivation or LIPA bearer deactivation, sends an internal signaling to the collocated LGW to indicate the collocated LGW to release the PDN connection of the SIPTO at local network or the PDN connection of the LIPA. The SeNB is a SeNB supporting functions of the LGW that supports operations of the SIPTO at local network or the operations of the LIPA. By the method of the present disclosure, the SIPTO bearer or the LIPA bearer in the dual-connectivity architecture can be released, thereby avoiding inaccurate operations in an access network, ensuring that the SIPTO bearer or the LIPA bearer can be released duly and accurately, and avoiding inaccurate release of the SIPTO bearer or the LIPA bearer.
