Title: METHOD AND DEVICE FOR PAGING USER EQUIPMENT
Abstract:
Provided by the present invention are a method and device for paging a user equipment, comprising: a user equipment receives an area identifier and a corresponding layering type, the layering type being a capacity type or an overlay type; if a capacity type area is currently accessed when the user equipment is switched to an idle state, the user equipment switches to an overlay type area according to the layering type; and the user equipment receives a paging message of the overlay type area. A network device determines an overlay type area in a user equipment registration area according to the area identifier and the corresponding layering type, and pages the user equipment in the overlay type area. According to the present invention, the user equipment side achieves the switching to the overlay type area by means of a layering type, and a network side achieves paging in the overlay type area, so that the paging overhead of a base station and the network equipment is reduced, and wireless resources are saved.
