Title: BASE STATION SWITCHING METHOD AND BASE STATION
Abstract:
A base station switching method and a base station. The method comprises: if a switching request message is received from a source base station establishing a first connection with a user equipment, the target base station establishing a second connection with the user equipment; the target base station establishing a third connection with a core network element, wherein the third connection is in a state to be activated; and if the target base station receives, from the user equipment, a first indication message indicating that the second connection is established, the target base station sending a second indication message to the core network element, wherein the second indication message is used for instructing the core network element to activate the third connection and delete a fourth connection between the source base station and the core network element at the same time. The embodiments of the present invention can reduce a switching delay, can improve a switching speed and a switching success rate, and can improve the utilization rate of air interface resources of a source base station.
