Claim of US Patent No. 10,462,842

1. A method for transmitting S1 Application Protocol (S1AP) signaling, the method comprising:receiving, by a smart edge device, a Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) message, carrying uplink S1AP signaling of a terminal, transmitted by a small cell, determining an operator network corresponding to the terminal based upon an S1 Access Point Identifier (S1AP ID) carried in the uplink S1AP signaling, and transmitting the SCTP message carrying the uplink S1AP signaling to a signaling gateway (He-GW) of the operator network; and
receiving, by the smart edge device, an SCTP message, carrying downlink S1AP signaling of the terminal, transmitted by the He-GW of the operator network, determining the small cell corresponding to the terminal based upon an S1AP ID carried in the downlink S1AP signaling, and transmitting the SCTP message carrying the downlink S1AP signaling to the small cell.
