3 Agenda Motivation Existing single radio paging schemes Paging in multi-radio environment Proposed SG scope and work
4 Motivation For a single radio MN, idle Mode and Paging have already been proposed independently in WiMax, 3GPP and WiFi to extend battery standby time In a multi radio environment, the MN may have multiple radios and each radio may be in connected or idle state. There is an opportunity to provide paging service via connected radio and aggregate paging messages across multiple radios –Fewer paging messages across network infrastructure –Fewer number of active radios on MN Multi Radio Paging can lead to considerable power saving at the MN and also provide radio/network/device resource optimization at the mobile communication infrastructure More on the savings in backup slides…
5 Use Case of Idle Mode & Paging with a single Radio Data packets Paging Controller Idle Mode messages Enter Idle Mode Location Update Exit Idle Mode PagingPaging PagingPaging Data packets
6 3GPP- LTE Paging 3GPP-LTE Network Architecture 3GPP-LTE Paging Protocols UE enters IDLE mode when there is no activity. Discontinuous Reception (DRX) – UE uses DRX in IDLE mode, i.e. wakes up periodically to check for paging messages. UE learns DRX cycle length upon network entry from the eNodeB. UE is registered at Tracking Area Level. Already exists in todays networks
7 WiMAX Paging Paging controller (PC) is a logical entity that administers activity of Idle mode MS. It may be co-located with BS or ASN Gateway. A PC may monitor one or more paging groups. Paging Agent (PA) entity, co-located with BS, handles the interaction between PC and paging functionality implemented in BS. Location Register (LR) is a database that contains information about Idle mode MSs. PC is responsible for sending paging messages and handling location updates.
8 WLAN Paging Currently no paging for WLANs but a proposal exists Idle Mode Operation –AP and Client advertises Paging Capability Discovery –Client enters Idle Mode if there is no incoming traffic –AP broadcasts Paging Indications (Paging ID), and client wakes up to receive paging indication –Client exits Idle Mode when client is paged Paging Group (PG) - a group of APs in which STA can be paged –Provides a collection of BSSs which a Client may traverse without requiring re- association –A Client must reassociate if it transitions to an AP in a different Paging Group Paging Server –Provides Paging Services and Serves one or more Paging Groups Paging group #1 Paging group #2 Paging Server #2 Paging group #3 Paging Server #1
9 Paging Summary in a single radio environment For each individual radio: Key Paging Messages –Paging Capability Discovery –Enter/Exit Idle Mode –Location Update (sent by MN aka Idle Mode Update) MS sends location update to the infrastructure –Paging Indication (sent by infrastructure) MS periodically wakes up to check whether it is being paged or not Key Concept and Logical Entity –Paging Group or Paging Area –Paging Server or Paging Controller
10 Multi-Radio Paging Potential Benefits In a multi-radio environment, the MN may have multiple radios and each radio may be in connected or idle states Potential Multi Radio Paging Benefits –All Paging messages via the connected radio Paging Indication Message sent via the connected radio Location Update via the connected radio –Paging aggregation minimizes message exchange Paging Indication Message aggregation Location Update aggregation Idle Mode Enter/Exit aggregation Therefore, unified multi-radio paging primitives are needed for multi-radio environments
11 Multi-Radio Paging Potential Benefits Tight-coupling solutions for & planned in future releases Multi-radio MN can enjoy benefits of location update on connected radio (WLAN), & idle mode entry using radio, & paging on radio CSN HA HAAA ASN GW * Access Point ASN WLAN ASN GW Multi-Radio NIC BS CSN
12 Multi-Radio Paging Potential Challenges There are potentially several security issues to consider especially when networks cross operator administrative domains There are issues around evolution of paging systems, does MRP, i.e. inter-operability restrict innovation in 3GPP LTE? Given that paging systems are evolving and new paging systems are very efficient, are the gains from MRP likely to be significant or very modest? Are there potentially issues on why MRP needs to function in L2? More details are in backup slides
13 Objective It is proposed that a Study Group be established to assess whether there is justification to form a task group to define a standard IEEE Media Independent Paging Service in multi-radio environment
14 Proposed SG Scope Identify and quantify multi-radio paging benefits Identify technical scope Determine impacts on IEEE , , and other standards, for example: –Potential Remediation : Determine whether available mechanisms are economically feasible and of utility to the community –Threat Analysis: Identify security threats especially when networks cross operator administrative domains –MAC and IP layer message requirements: Identify the engagement with IEEE , , , , WiMAX, 3GPP LTE and 3GPP2 –IP layer message requirements: Identify the engagement with IETF Decide whether a TG is needed, and if so define PAR and 5Criteria.

23 Proposed Standard Engagements IETF: –MIPSHOP WG currently defining transport protocol for –MRP needs MIPSHOP WG liaison for any IP transport issues –MONAMI6 WG on multiple wireless interface host mobility –MRP may propose MONAMI6 WG liaison for any IP Paging issues
24 Comments/ Concerns There are potentially several security issues to consider especially when networks cross operator administrative domains –IPSec and IKEv2 available and widely used
25 Comments/ Concerns (contd) There are issues around evolution of paging systems, does MRP, i.e. inter-operability restrict innovation in 3GPP LTE? –MPR is not about individual paging systems, so paging systems can evolve independent of MPR –The glues (IP layer backend messages) may need to be redefined
26 Comments/ Concerns (contd) Given that paging systems are evolving and new paging systems are very efficient, are the gains from MRP likely to be significant or very modest? Multi-radio Paging gains are significant: –Due to resource allocation/ QoS, single-radio idle mode entry requires at least 4 message exchange with two messages over the air; the same for idle mode exit –For a 3 radio MN, Location update separately on single-radio requires a total of 3 * ( ), 36 messages with 18 over the air –Aggregated LU procedure of multi-radio paging using the connected radio requires only 8 messages with 2 over the air
27 Comments/ Concerns (contd) Given that paging systems are evolving and new paging systems are very efficient, are the gains from MRP likely to be significant or very modest? Multi-radio Paging gains are significant: –Single-radio paging potentially involves many (n) BSs in the same paging area broadcasting paging request messages. Only one BS reports success to the paging controller (PC), PC stops n-1 BSs –Paging via connected radio procedure of multi-radio paging avoids the search and requires only two messages
28 Comments/ Concerns (contd) There are potentially issues on why MRP needs to function in L2? –The reasons are the same as for
29 Motion Move that the IEEE WG form a study group to determine how to formally describe the IEEE Multi-Radio Paging functions and behaviors, with the intent to create a PAR and five criteria documents to form a new Task Group.
