  • Publication number: 20100067444
    Abstract: An emergency telephone call is supported and routed to a Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) in an IP based packet switched wireless communications network. An activate PDP context request is sent from a user equipment to the network. A parameter in said activate PDP context request indicates that the PDP context will be used to transfer an emergency call. An activate PDP context accept message is returned from said support node to said user equipment. Said activate PDP context accept message acknowledges said activate PDP context request message and provides the address of a call state control function. A call setup request transferred to the call state control function includes the Service Area Identity (SAI). The call state control function selects a PSAP based, at least in part, on the SAI included in the call setup request and forwards the emergency call to the selected PSAP.

  • Patent number: 7672288
    Abstract: The invention relates to mobility management of an Internet-type protocol traffic in a mobile communications system. At least one mobile exchange (DXT1, DXT2) in the mobile communications system is arranged to operate as a gateway which interfaces (router 1) the mobile communications system with external data networks. All the mobile exchanges (DXT1, DXT2) are arranged to use a user identity and a data equipment identity for identifying each mobile host and to use an identity of the mobile exchange currently serving the mobile host for defining the location of the mobile host. Each mobile host is dynamically or permanently allocated an IP address which is bound to the user identity, the data equipment identity and the location information of the respective mobile host. The use of the user identity and the data terminal identity provide a unique identification for the mobile host without any relation to the IP network. Also the location information is independent of the IP network.

  • Patent number: 7274869
    Abstract: A system and method for establishing protection routes in optical mesh networks. A protection protocol is provided that utilizes a destination-to-source communication channel to establish a source-to-destination protection route. The communication channel is established from the node detecting the failed link back towards the transmitting node. As the destination-to-source communication channel is being established back towards the source node, it concurrently directs the nodes along this path to perform switching functions to subsequently allow the information originally intended for transmission via the failed link to be switched to the alternate protection path. Various manners of ascertaining the protection routes are also provided, including predetermined and/or dynamically-generated protection paths established via the destination-to-source communication channel.

  • Patent number: 7227849
    Abstract: The invention relates to implementation of multiple simultaneous calls for a mobile station in a mobile communication system. A common traffic channel (TCH) is allocated to several simultaneous calls (applications 1–n) of the mobile station (MS), so that the calls share the capacity of the common channel. Logical links are established for each call inside a common radio link protocol or link access control protocol, which is established over the common traffic channel between the mobile station (MS) and an interworking function (IWF). The common traffic channel (TCH) is allocated when the first call or calls are set up, and the capacity of the traffic channel is adjusted dynamically during the calls. The capacity of the common traffic channel is increased or the allocated capacity is reallocated when a new call is added to the traffic channel. Correspondingly, the capacity is decreased or the allocated capacity is reallocated when a call is cleared from the common traffic channel.

  • Patent number: 7180868
    Abstract: A method of setting a timer associated with a protocol supportinga data link in a digital mobile communication system in a connection section. At least one party (MSC/IWF, MS) to the connectionsection monitors if the need to change the timer value has arisen. Should such a need be detected, the timer value (S) is set to avalue deviating from the initial value. The need to change the timer value (S) is also determined during the connection, such asin handover, for example by measuring the propagation delay associated with the connection section. This may be implemented by either of the parties to the connection transmitting to the other party a frame (F) which is selected/formed such that the party receiving the frame sends an acknowledgement (Ack) to the transmitting party. The party which transmitted the frame measures the timefrom the moment of transmission of the frame (F) to the arrival of the acknowledgement (Ack) and deduces the propagation delay (D) therefrom.
