Title: DIFFERENTIATED SERVICES IN LEGACY COMMUNICATION NETWORKS
Abstract:
System comprising one or more Wi-Fi capable user entities, UE, a fixed wireless terminal, FWT, offering Wi-Fi access to Wi-Fi capable UE's, the FWT further communicating via Long Term Evolution, LTE, access to an eNodeB, that again provides user plane communication to a Serving Gateway, SGW, a Packet Data Network Gateway, PGW, and to a Wi-Fi Mobility Gateway, WMG. The FWT is -connecting (1) to LTE network as a standard LTE terminal, -obtaining (2) an IP address from LTE network for data service, -setting up (3) a GRE tunnel with the WMG, whereby a WMG IP address (601) is the tunnel end-point and whereby user plane traffic from and to the UE's is encapsulated inside said GRE tunnel and relayed between the FWT and the WMG via the LTE network as a backhaul communication (902 -903; 1001 -1003), said GRE tunnel traversing the eNodeB, the SGW and the PGW and terminating in the WMG. Upon UEs are connecting to the FWT, the FWT -acting (4) as a Wi-Fi AP from the UE point of view whereby a plurality of UEs can connect to the FWT at the same time.
