Title: METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR SETTING TIME LENGTH OF PERIODIC LOCATION UPDATE TIMER, AND NETWORK DEVICE
Abstract:
A method and apparatus for setting a periodic location update timer, and a network device, relating to the technical field of networks. The method comprises: receiving a NAS message sent by a UE, and obtaining a sending period of application layer data of the UE according to the NAS message; setting a time length of a periodic location update timer of the UE to be greater than the length of the sending period of the application layer data; and sending to the UE a location update reply carrying a set time length of the periodic location update timer. The present invention resolves a problem in the related art of increase in power consumption and network signaling load of an M2M terminal caused by continuously sending a location update request to an MME/SGSN during a process of sending application layer data to the MME/SGSN by a UE, thereby reducing the power consumption and the network signaling load of the M2M terminal.
