The network element comprises a signal processor arranged to: receive and process information from a plurality of access points wherein the received information identifies a macro cell visible to a respective access point; and calculate a degree of correlation of the information from the at least two access points based at least partly on the processed macro cell information provided by the respective access point.07-18-2013
20120282933PUBLIC WIRELESS NETWORK PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM WITH MOBILE DEVICE DATA COLLECTION AGENTS - Controller coupled to a mobile communications environment including at least one of a public and a private network and method of controlling a mobile device in the mobile communications environment. The controller includes a receiver that receives data about network operating parameters at specific locations within the at least one of a public and private network, a processor that evaluates the data about the network operating parameters at the specific locations based upon rules for the mobile device, and a transmitter that sends advisories to a mobile device located within a predetermined proximity to one of the specific locations about the network operating parameters.11-08-2012
20120021749Communication System, Network Handover Processing Method and Apparatus - A communication system, a network handover processing method and a network handover processing apparatus are disclosed. The method includes the following steps: receiving, by a target evolved NodeB (T-eNB), identity information sent from a user equipment (UE), the identity information being allocated to the UE by a source evolved NodeB (S-eNB); and sending, by the T-eNB, parameters to the UE if identity information, matching the received identity information sent from the UE, is available in the T-eNB, wherein the parameters are allocated to the UE. The apparatus includes a receiving module and a sending module. The communication system, network handover processing method and network handover processing apparatus can reduce the state change times of the UE in the network handover process and save the system resources.01-26-2012
