Application: Radio network node, user equipment, and methods performed therein (Patent ID: US20240064598A1)

The patent filed by Telefonaktiebolaget LM Ericsson relates to a method for handling communication in a wireless communication network, specifically focusing on determining whether a user equipment (UE) is flying or not. The method involves checking conditions related to a handover of the UE based on this determination, with different configurations and thresholds for flying and non-flying UEs. The UE may be configured with specific conditions, such as time to trigger values, event instances, and signal strength thresholds, to facilitate efficient handover processes.

Additionally, the patent describes a method performed by a radio network node to configure the UE to determine its flying status and check handover conditions accordingly. The network node can set different configurations for flying and non-flying UEs, including conditional handover configurations, time to trigger values, event instances, and signal strength thresholds. This approach aims to optimize communication in the wireless network by tailoring handover processes based on whether the UE is determined to be flying or not, ultimately improving network performance and user experience.
