Claim of US Patent No. 10,560,918

1. A method comprising:detecting, by a computer device, a condition to page a user equipment (UE) device;
retrieving, by the computer device, mobility category information associated with the UE device from a mobility database;
using, by the computer device, the retrieved mobility category information to determine a paging policy;
selecting, by the computer device, a number of base station cells to which the computer device is to send a paging message based on the determined paging policy, wherein selecting the number of base station cells to which the computer device is to send a paging message includes:
selecting to page a first number of base station cells around a last known base station cell servicing the UE device, when the mobility category information identifies the UE device as belonging to a low mobility category; and
selecting to page a second number of base station cells around the last known base station cell servicing the UE device, wherein the second number is higher than the first number, when the mobility category information identifies the UE device as belonging to a high mobility category; and
paging, by the computer device, the UE device using the selected number of base station cells.
