  • Publication number: 20140130130
    Abstract: A system includes a remote authentication dial in user service (RADIUS) server in communication with a network access server. The network access server provides an authentication request to the RADIUS server. The authentication request includes at least a user identifier and a device identifier. The RADIUS server determines an authentication format utilized by the network access server based on the received authentication request. The system may also determine an authorization level to provide with an authentication response.

  • Patent number: 8364800
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a system and process for resolving messages from application components to back-end systems. The system comprises a standardized message definition which uses a tagged field format through which application components communicate to a message handler. The message handler applies rules that define actions to be taken and recipients of information based on the contents of the message. The rules may be pre-defined by a customer associated with an application component generating a message, based on common rules applied to components generally, or based upon service rules associated with the service provider, such as level of service subscriptions or other characteristics, or based on a combination of any or all of the above bases. By utilizing published message formats, the present invention provides a platform independent framework for exposing application hosting back-end systems to customer applications.

  • Publication number: 20110019811
    Abstract: A system for and method of providing local number portability is presented. A request may be received to establish a session between an origination user agent and a destination user agent. The request may comprise a destination user agent identifier. It may be determined whether the destination user agent identifier was ported from one service provider to another. If so, routing information may be provided for establishing the session through the second service provider rather than through the first service provider. The session may be established over one or more Internet protocol networks.

  • Publication number: 20100150028
    Abstract: A computing-device implemented network planning process distributes access links associated with customer locations to selected nodes of a provider network. The network planning process distributes the access links associated with the customer locations to the selected nodes of provider network such that overall latency goals for the network are met and such that the density of the connected customer locations to the network nodes in the network satisfy density requirements. The network planning process seeks diversity in customer location assignments by creating additional capacity through the re-assignment of customer locations to alternate network nodes in order to free up space on network nodes needed to off-load customer locations from other over-loaded network nodes. The network planning process permits an expanded ring of network nodes to accommodate dense customer traffic load across a wide area while meeting both individual connection and overall system requirements.
