Title: USER EQUIPMENT ASSISTED PACKET ROUTING AT A BASE STATION
Abstract:
Wireless communications systems as described herein may be configured to provide user equipment (UE) assisted information for caching data at a network node external to a core network (CN). In some cases, the UE may provide an acceleration indicator (AI) that a base station may receive and identify as caching information. The base station, upon identifying that the AI is present in an uplink packet, may transmit the packet to a gateway having a local cache. If the uplink packet does not have an AI, the base station may route the uplink packet according to an address (e.g., a uniform resource locator (URL) ) contained in the packet.
