Title: ACCESS TO A COMMUNICATION SYSTEM EMPLOYING NETWORK SLICING BASED ON PRE-CONFIGURED ACCESS CATEGORY
Abstract:
A system and method for performing network slicing in a communication system. In one embodiment, an apparatus (110, 200, 910, 920) in a communication system (100, 900) employing network slicing is configured to select a pre-configured access category indicating a priority of communication with the communication system (100, 900) and based on a criterion dependent on a network slice (slice 0, slice 1). The apparatus (110, 200, 910, 920) is also configured to transmit an access message (msg 3) including the pre-configured access category in accordance with a random access procedure with the communication system (100, 900).
