1. A method for a terminal device in an inactive state, comprising:
receiving a paging message, a content carried in the paging message comprising:
a first identity of the terminal device and an identity of an anchor access network device, or
a second identity of the terminal device; and
in response to the content carried in the paging message comprising the first identity of the terminal device and the identity of the anchor access network device, sending a first request message to a first access network device; or in response to the content carried in the paging message comprises the second identity of the terminal device, sending a second request message to the first access network device, and clearing stored context information,
wherein the first request message is a connection resume request message carrying information of the first identity of the terminal device and information of the identity of the anchor access network device, wherein the first identity of the terminal device identifies the terminal device on the anchor access network device, and wherein the identity of the anchor access network device identifies the anchor access network device in an access network, and
wherein the second request message is a connection establishment request message carries a third identity of the terminal device, wherein the second identity of the terminal device identifies the terminal device in a core network, and wherein the third identity of the terminal device identifies the terminal device in the core network.
