Although the terminal 110 is described as being implemented as a separate device from the entry determining device 140 in the present embodiment, the terminal 110 includes all the functions of the entry determining device 140 (Stand Alone) device.

The AP 122 is a device for connecting data communication, and is a device capable of reading a destination address from transmission side information, designating a most appropriate communication path, and transmitting the same to another communication network. In other words, the AP 122 extracts the location of the data packet, specifies the best communication path to the extracted location, directs the data packet to the next device along the designated communication path, It can also be shared. Meanwhile, in the present embodiment, the AP 122 is a concept including a router, a repeater, a repeater, and a bridge.

The AP 122 according to the present embodiment refers to an AP installed in a communication company, not an AP installed by each user. That is, the communication company installs and services an AP capable of performing communication separately from the mobile communication network 130. In the case of the communication company AP, the accurate location value of the installation location is stored.

The wireless LAN authentication apparatus 124 is an AAA (Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting) server and performs authentication for determining whether the terminal 110 recognized from any one of the plurality of APs 122 is a correspondent subscriber Means a device to perform. That is, the wireless LAN authentication apparatus 124 recognizes the terminal 110 from the AP 122 and performs authentication using the authentication information for the terminal 110 when there is a connection request from the terminal 110 . When the authentication information of the terminal 110 is authenticated to confirm whether the terminal 110 is a subscriber of the communication company, the WLAN authentication apparatus 124 transmits WLAN AP MAC address information included in the authentication information And transmits it to the determination device 140.

In addition, the femtocell can provide not only voice calls but also Internet services such as Wi-Fi. Meanwhile, an area covered by one femtocell base station can be referred to as a femtocell coverage. In the femtocell coverage, a femtocell base station performs service in a building, and an out-door base station performs service when the user leaves the building . However, it is difficult to distinguish the clear coverage from the characteristic of the wireless medium, and the coverage of the relatively small femtocell compared to the coverage of the external base station may be greatly influenced by the output of the external base station.

The micro base station gateway 128 refers to a gateway for a plurality of micro base stations 126 to be interlocked. When the terminal 110 performs location registration from one of the plurality of micro-base stations 126, the micro-base station gateway 128 transmits the location registration information to the entry determining device 140.
