3GPP has introduced paging function which is initiated by the MME/SGSN to make signaling interaction with the UE
that is in IDLE state. However, both M2M devices and the OTT (over the top) applications installed on the smart
phones result in great paging signaling load. Therefore, there is a need to further investigate the paging policies and
procedures to solve the paging signaling load in LTE. This TR aims to study the specific scenarios where there is a need
to enhance the paging policies and optimize the paging procedures.
The objective is to study use cases and propose potential requirements to enhance the information set (e.g., user's
subscription, application characteristics) upon which paging policies may be based to allow optimization of the paging
procedures in LTE.
