Title: COMMUNICATION DEVICE AND METHOD THEREIN FOR CONNECTION MANAGEMENT IN WIRELESS COMMUNICATION NETWORK.
Abstract:
A wireless communication device (140) and method therein for managing connection states in a wireless communication system (100) are disclosed. The wireless communication device (140) comprises at least two Subscriber Identity Modules, SIMs, in which a first SIM is associated to a first original connection state towards a first network node (111), a second SIM is associated to a second original connection state towards a second network node (121). The wireless communication device (140) obtains a position of the wireless communication device (140) and determines a priority list for the at least two SIMs based on the obtained position. The wireless communication device (140) further determines whether the respective connection states of the first and second SIMs have conflicting needs in radio resources. When the respective connection states of the first and second SIMs have conflicting needs in radio resources, the wireless communication device (140) performs a connection state change for the SIM that has lower priority from its original connection state to a third connection state.
