  • Patent number: 10383052
    Abstract: A communications device establishes a communications context for communicating data packets using a packet communications bearer from the communications device via a mobile communications network. A controller of the communications device is configured to identify that the communications device can enter a stasis state because no data packets are available for transmission for a predetermined time via the packet communications bearer or there are no data packets to receive via the packet communications bearer, to transmit a stasis state message to the mobile communications network, and to store information relating to the communications context associated with the packet communications bearer in a data store. The stored information can be used by the controller to re-establish the packet communications bearer to transmit and/or receive data packets using the packet communications bearer, the communications device thereby entering the stasis state.

  • Patent number: 10368256
    Abstract: A mobile communication device (MCD) in a network uses a land mobile radio (LMR) transceiver to facilitate voice communications through an LMR network to a dispatch center. A broadband cellular network (BCN) wireless modem in communication with the MCD implements a BCN wireless communication protocol for broadband data communications between the MCD and a remote dispatch center. When a BCN access interruption occurs, the MCD will automatically communicate to the remote dispatch center a notification of the BCN access interruption, by using the LMR network, and data otherwise communicated through the BCN is automatically communicated through the LMR network.

  • Patent number: 10284338
    Abstract: Disclosed are various embodiments for optimizing broadcast messaging for a node. The node receives data for a message from the network. While the data for the message is being received and upon completion of an initial portion of the message, the node determines identification information for the message specified in the initial portion. When (i) the identification information specifies that the message is a broadcast message and (ii) an identifier in the message matches a stored identifier of a previously received broadcast message, the node terminates receiving the data for the remainder of the message. Alternatively, when (i) the identification information specifies that the message is a broadcast message and (ii) the identifier in the message does not match any stored identifier of a previously received broadcast message, the node continues receiving data for the subsequent portion of the message and stores the identifier for the broadcast message.
