MME sharing among multiple MME Pools

+2 votes
235 views

One eNodeB can have multiple cell (equal to number of sectors in eNodeB), and these cells can be part of different TA. In this case when the eNodeB connects to a MME, this MME can serve multiple TA.

Now can this MME be shared among multiple MME Pools on the basis of TA list?

Also MME pool is explained as a pool of MMEs which serves a common geographical area, but how this pool is defined, is it by configuration?

Network operator typically configures these pools. Since a MME can be part of single MME, the network operator will carefully configure these MME pool areas, as to load balance the serving UEs. Another way of configuring pools is by using the DNS mechanism.

However MME Pool areas can overlap because, of the TA they serve. As we know each MME can serve a set of TA i.e. TA list. But MME can never be shared among multiple MME pools. [MME is identified by a unique MME Code and the group [MMEGID] to which it belongs to, globally. Also the PLMN ID is associated with it to form GUMMEI ] It is just that the TAreas may change for an UE. And if the UE roams between them, the MME which has that respective TA in the correspodning pool area [geographically] in its serving list will be chosen to serve the UE.

When BMSC server initiates a service to broadcast, it provides service Id using the TMGI (temporary mobile group Id) and the area i.e MBMS service area. Once MME forwards this information to MCE, how MCE maps this received MBMS service area to MBSFN Area(s) ? How MCE decides on MCCH related BCCH configuration during the M2 Setup request ? In M2 setup request, eNodeB sends the list of serving MBMS service areas per cell to MCE but how MCE decides which cell is going to be part of a particular MBSFN Area. ?

Hi All,

I have a query regarding S1 setup procedure.
If MME receives S1 setup Request message from same eNB twice (Assuming the S1 connection is already up), what will be the behavior of MME in this case.
Will it erase both UE and non-UE related application data? Or does it send S1 setup failure message?

Thanks in advance.
