Title: COMMUNICATION METHOD AND APPARATUS
Abstract:
The present disclosure provides a communication method and apparatus, and pertains to the technical field of mobile communications. The method comprises: receiving data sent by a user equipment (UE); determining a core network providing a communication service for the UE; if the core network is a next-generation core network (NG-Core), performing data format conversion on the data to obtain specified data in a data format consistent with that of the NG-Core, and sending the specified data to the NG-Core; and if the core network is a 4th-generation core network EPC, sending the data to the EPC. In the present disclosure, the base station can enable a current UE to communicate with an EPC, and can also support communication of the current UE with an NG-Core when the deployment of the NG-Core is completed, thereby realizing the seamless transition from 4G to 5G.
