Abstract

An infrastructure equipment forms part of a mobile communications network for transmitting data to communications devices or receiving data from communications devices. The infrastructure equipment is configured to receive an indication that data is to be transmitted to one of the communications devices. In response the infrastructure equipment is configured to transmit a first paging message to the communications device to indicate that the communications device is to receive the data via the wireless access interface. If a response to the transmitted first paging message is not received within a predetermined time, then if the infrastructure is able to use a power boosting mode, to transmit the first paging message with a boosted power, or if the infrastructure equipment is not able to use a power boosted mode for transmitting, to transmit a second paging message to one or more communications apparatus which can operate as a relay node for the communications device. The second paging message identifies the relay node and the communications device for which the infrastructure equipment is to transmit the data.
