Title: Method for routing data in a communication system

Abstract: The present invention provides a method for routing data from a service request in a communication system. A context is transferred from a packet data gateway, such as a Serving GPRS (GSM Packet Radio Service) Support Node (SGSN), to a Base Station System (BSS) coupled thereto. The context specifies where data for this user should be sent. The service request is received at the BSS and includes data. The data from the service request is routed to an appropriate location, based at least in part upon the context.
