  • Patent number: 10972901
    Abstract: A permissioned blockchain can be a decentralized data store that maintains information indicating whether user equipment (UE) is SIM locked and/or should be disabled. A UE can access the blockchain during boot up to determine if it should be disabled and not booted into a normal operating environment, and/or whether it is SIM locked to a particular carrier. Authorized entities, such as carriers and UE manufacturers, can update the blockchain to indicate that certain UEs should be disabled, are SIM locked, are not SIM locked, and/or whether it is permissible to remove SIM locks from those UEs.

  • Patent number: 10972953
    Abstract: A UE determines a set of RATs available in accordance with a first subscriber identity associated with a first network and a second subscriber identity associated with a second network. When the set includes a first RAT accessing a base station in the first network, a second RAT accessing a base station in the second network, and a third RAT accessing an access point of a WLAN, the UE selects, in a first performance configuration, the first RAT to establish a first call under the first subscriber identity. The UE further communicates, under the first subscriber identity, with a first IMS server of the first network through the first RAT to establish the first call. The UE maintains, under the second subscriber identity, a connection with a second IMS server of the second network through the first RAT or the third RAT when the first call is active.

  • Patent number: 10880814
    Abstract: Apparatuses of wireless communication systems are disclosed. A User Equipment (UE) stores an enhanced coverage restricted parameter from a Mobility Management Entity (MME), and operates in the enhanced coverage mode if the enhanced coverage restricted parameter indicates that the UE is not restricted. The MME decodes an enhanced coverage restricted parameter received from a Home Subscriber Server (HSS), and generates a message to send the enhanced coverage restricted parameter to the UE. An eNode B decodes a message from the UE, the message indicating that the UE supports restriction for use of enhanced coverage. The eNB decodes an S1 Application Protocol (S1-AP) initial context set-up request message configured to indicate an enhanced coverage restricted parameter, the message received from the MME. The eNB operates in the enhanced coverage mode for the UE unless the enhanced coverage restricted parameter indicates that the enhanced coverage is restricted.

  • Patent number: 10880689
    Abstract: The described embodiments relate to systems, methods, and apparatuses for controlling a network of lights (120) according to whether people (122) who are observing the lights are visitors from a different location (108). Visitors can be identified by using network connection data (116, 208) that includes entries corresponding to personal devices of visitors to a city. The network connection data can be filtered to identify how many personal devices are associated with people visiting from a different city. If the number of visitors exceeds some threshold relative to non-visitors, a lighting arrangement in the city can be controlled to display features that would appeal to the visitors. The features can correspond to aspects of the city where the visitors are from and can therefore make the city more attractive.

  • Patent number: 10841774
    Abstract: Fast channel deployment is achieved amongst subscriber devices (SDs) having an incident scene role at an incident scene. An SD detects an incident scene arrival trigger associated with arrival at an incident scene. Responsive to detecting the incident scene arrival trigger, the SD (i) tunes to a pre-configured incident channel or (ii) scans a plurality of channels for an incident channel and tunes to the incident channel once located. The SD receives, via the incident channel, an incident scene role to traffic channel mapping that maps a particular incident scene role associated with the subscriber device to a particular assigned traffic channel on which subscriber devices associated with a same incident scene role may communicate. The SD tunes to the particular assigned traffic channel as a function of the incident scene role to traffic channel mapping.

  • Patent number: 10757562
    Abstract: Systems and methods for providing online access to multiple mobile station international subscriber directory numbers (MSISDNs), or mobile numbers, with compatible internet-connected user equipment (UEs). The system can include a web portal through which users can send and receive voice calls, video calls, text messages, e-mails, and other communications via multiple authorized mobile numbers. The system can include a graphical user interface (GUI) to enable users to select a mobile number to place a call or send a text, for example, with the call or text appearing to be sent from the mobile number. The system can also route incoming calls and texts to both the UE associated with the mobile number and the web portal. Thus, an incoming call, for example, can ring on both the UE and a tablet or laptop computer substantially simultaneously.

  • Patent number: 10741073
    Abstract: A method of tracking at least one emergency service provider is disclosed. An electronic history is compiled that includes at least one identifier of a service provider, at least one identifier of an event to which the service provider responded, and GPS data identifying the geographic location of the service provider at each time interval within the duration of the event. A user interface within which is displayed a first identifier of a first event is generated to a display device. A selection of the event identifier is received from a user. In response to the selection of the identifier, an aerial view of a geographic region within which the first event took place is generated.
