Claim of US Patent No. 9,750,011

1. A method for allocating a resource of a fixed broadband network, wherein the method comprises:
transmitting, by an Internet Protocol, IP, edge gateway, a session establishment request to a Policy and Charging Rule Function,
PCRF, upon determining authentication of a Residential Gateway, RG, is completed, the session establishment request carries
an identifier of an access line corresponding to the RG;

receiving a session establishment response sent by the PCRF; and
when there are devices accessing through the RG, statistical multiplexing a bandwidth resource of the access line corresponding
to the RG among the devices accessing through the RG according to an Aggregated Maximum Bit Rate, AMBR, parameter carried
in the session establishment response;

wherein the method further comprises:
receiving, by the IP edge gateway, a session modification request transmitted by the PCRF upon determining an update to the
AMBR of the access line corresponding to the RG among the devices accessing through the RG; and

returning a session modification response to the PCRF and statistical multiplexing the bandwidth resource of the access line
corresponding to the RG among the devices accessing through the RG according to the updated AMBR carried in the session modification
request.
