Andrea Marzii: Signalling method for communication networks, corresponding network, devices and computer program product. Nokia Siemens Networks Oy, Harrington & Smith, February 10, 2015: US08955051 (120 worldwide citation)

A method is proposed, for use e.g. in the context of WiMAX networks supporting the CMIPv6 function, for allowing the ASN-GW to become aware of the status of a control procedure, the CMIPv6 mobility binding procedure. The ASN-GW is not directly aware of its result since the procedure implies a messag ...
