  • Patent number: 10165115
    Abstract: Concepts and technologies for handling and screening incoming calls are provided. A processor executing instructions associated with a call handling service can detect that a call from a calling party is being routed, via a communication interface, to a called party device associated with a customer. The processor can obtain caller identification data that can specify an identity that is generated by the calling party and intended to be representative of the calling party when presented to the customer by the called party device. The processor can determine an interface identifier associated with the communication interface, and retrieve a call authentication scenario based on the interface identifier. The call authentication scenario can specify a storage location of data. The processor can obtain the data from the storage location, determine a call handling action, prepare a call handling command, and provide the call handling command to a network.

  • Patent number: 10165539
    Abstract: A primary user of a spectrum, such as a licensed user, has primary access authority to use of a spectrum. A plurality of secondary users of the spectrum, which may be unlicensed users, have secondary access authority to use of the spectrum. When the primary user wants to use the spectrum, the primary user sends a message that is propagated to all the secondary users in a geographic region that the primary user wants to use the spectrum. The message specifies the duration of time and the geographic region (location of use) where the primary user wants to use the spectrum. The secondary users in the location of use immediately stop using the spectrum for the duration of time specified in the message and then may resume use of the spectrum.

  • Patent number: 10165430
    Abstract: Systems and methods for providing alerts to end users of networked enabled portable devices are provided so that the end users are made aware when broadcast emergency alerts are issued. The systems and methods provide a way for a portable device to receive information about an emergency alert broadcast of which the user should be aware, e.g., from the EAS, and to notify the user of the emergency alert. A flag provides an indication the EAS should be on and the systems and method override the settings made by a user to a portable device to enable EAS reception. The user may then be automatically taken to the emergency alert information by having the portable device automatically tune to the emergency broadcast information, or the user may optionally retrieve the emergency information by tuning to the emergency broadcast channel, or the user may otherwise be presented with a reference to the emergency data (e.g., a link to the information).
