Application: Configuration of downlink data measurement at mobile terminating early data transmission (MT-EDT) (Patent ID: US20240107593A1)

The patent filed by Telefonaktiebolaget LM Ericsson pertains to apparatuses and methods for configuring downlink data measurement during mobile terminating early data transmission (MT-EDT) procedures. The invention involves determining whether to measure the size of downlink data associated with a user equipment (UE), obtaining the measurement of the data size, and potentially sending this measurement to another network node. The process is based on factors such as policies, subscription parameters, and traffic profiles related to the UE.

The disclosed method utilizes a non-transitory computer-readable medium with software instructions for network nodes to execute steps like determining the need for data size measurement, obtaining the measurement, and transmitting it to a second network node. The size measurement indication can be included in various network messages like session establishment requests or create session context messages. Additionally, the data size measurement can influence the decision-making process at radio access network (RAN) nodes regarding the initiation of MT-EDT procedures, which are crucial for efficient radio resource control (RRC) procedures. The patent focuses on enhancing network efficiency and resource allocation by optimizing downlink data measurement processes during early data transmissions.
