Abstract (en)

[origin: WO2013060807A2] A method includes communicating from a cell to user equipment a biasing parameter to be used by the user equipment to select and attach to a cell for uplink-centric communications with the selected cell. User equipment that receive the biasing parameter may (e.g., if preconfigured to use the parameter) select and attach to one of a number of cells for uplink-centric communications based on the biasing parameter. Another method includes determining at a cell user equipment that have uplink-centric communications, calculating a biasing parameter for uplink-centric communications, sending the calculated biasing parameter to neighbor cell(s), and receiving a corresponding biasing parameter from each of the neighbor cell(s). For the user equipment that were determined to have uplink-centric communications, the user equipment are handed over from the cell to one of the neighbor cell(s) based on the calculated and the received biasing parameters. Apparatus, software, and program products are also disclosed.
