1. An apparatus for managing communication links comprising:
a memory storing instructions;
a processor to execute the instructions stored in the memory to perform the following operations:
receiving a request from a first traffic node to establish a communication link with a second traffic node, wherein at least the second traffic node is one of a plurality of traffic nodes registered with a radio network;
receiving, from the first traffic node, object description information associated with the request, wherein the object description information is data collected by the first traffic node from the second traffic node, and identifies the second traffic node with a predetermined confidence level;
comparing the object description information with stored information relating to the second traffic node;
determining, based on the comparison, a likelihood that the object description information pertains to the second traffic node; and
deciding, based on the determination, whether to grant the request.
