Claim of US Patent No. 10,397,959

1. A method performed by an evolved NodeB (eNB) in a wireless communication system, the method comprising:receiving, by the eNB, a random access preamble from a user equipment (UE);
transmitting, by the eNB, a random access response which is a response to the random access preamble to the UE;
receiving, by the eNB, a message 3 of a random access procedure from the UE, wherein the message 3 is used for determining that the UE is a low-end UE;
receiving, by the eNB, a low-end UE capability from the UE; and
transferring, by the eNB, the low-end UE capability to a mobility management entity (MME), wherein the low-end UE capability is transmitted by the MME to another eNB, and
wherein the low-end UE includes a low-cost machine-type communication (MTC) device.
