Claim of US Patent No. 10,200,910

1. A method of operating a wireless communication system to dynamically modify a Buffer Status Report (BSR) timer in a wireless relay, the method comprising:a wireless access point determining a User Equipment (UE) load on the wireless access point, wherein the UE load includes at least a number of UEs;
the wireless access point comparing the UE load to a relay reporting threshold, and if the UE load exceeds the relay reporting threshold, then increasing the BSR timer for the wireless relay to decrease BSR transfers from the wireless relay; and
the wireless access point indicating the increased BSR timer to the wireless relay.
