Title: METHODS AND SYSTEMS FOR CONNECTING A WIRELESS COMMUNICATIONS DEVICE TO A DEPLOYABLE WIRELESS COMMUNICATIONS NETWORK
Abstract:
Methods and systems for connecting a wireless communications device (105) to a deployable wireless communications network (100). The method (400) includes receiving, from the wireless communications device (105) via a mobile management entity (130) (MME) configured to operate as an extensible authentication protocol (EAP) authenticator, an extensible authentication protocol packet. The method (400) further includes authenticating the wireless communications device (105) based on the extensible authentication protocol packet. The method (400) further includes establishing a first wireless connection between the wireless communications device (105) and a deployable subscription bootstrapping service (120) of the deployable wireless communications network (100). The method (400) further includes generating a subscription profile for the wireless communications device (105), and communicating the subscription profile to the wireless communications device (105) via the first wireless connection. The method (400) further includes discontinuing the first wireless connection, and establishing a second wireless connection between the wireless communications device (105) and the deployable wireless communications network (100) using the subscription profile.
