Application: Method for mobility management in satellite-terrestrial integrated network based on blockchain (Patent ID: US20240098699A1)

The patent filed by ZTE Corp. discloses a wireless communication method for blockchain nodes, involving receiving a query request related to paging information of a wireless terminal from an access and mobility management function, determining the paging information based on registration information stored on a blockchain, and transmitting the paging information back to the access and mobility management function. The method utilizes smart contracts within the blockchain to determine the paging information, which includes details such as paging routes and operation plans of wireless network nodes.

Additionally, the patent describes methods for access and mobility management functions to interact with blockchain nodes to retrieve paging information for wireless terminals. This involves transmitting query requests via smart contracts, receiving paging information from the blockchain node, and paging the wireless terminal accordingly. The paging information includes details on paging routes and operation plans stored on the blockchain, ensuring efficient communication and management within wireless networks. The registration information of wireless terminals, including identifiers, geolocation, and registration times, is recorded on the blockchain using smart contracts, allowing for secure and decentralized storage and management of network data.
