  • Patent number: 10904759
    Abstract: A method for the initial operation and personalization of a subscriber identity module in a mobile radio network, prior to its first initial operation in the mobile radio network, the subscriber identity module does not yet include an individual secret key and is being equipped with an individual, unique parameter data set only after its first initial operation in the mobile radio network. A mobile radio server takes on, from the subscriber identity module, an authentication message formed with a preliminary parameter data set comprising an individual, unique subscriber identification and a non-individual, non-unique preliminary secret key, and sends, after a verification, in response thereto an individual, unique final secret key to the subscriber identity module for programming into the subscriber identity module. The preliminary parameter data set is introduced into the subscriber identity module selectively during production or by an initializing step based on an initial parameter data set.

  • Patent number: 10893528
    Abstract: According to one configuration, a base station controller monitors use of multiple wireless channels amongst multiple wireless base stations operating in a wireless network environment. In response to detecting under allocation of wireless channels between a first wireless base station and a first group of communication devices, the base station control allocates a supplemental wireless channel to the first wireless base station. In one embodiment, the base station controller de-allocates a wireless channel from a second wireless base station and assigns the de-allocated wireless channel to the first wireless base station as the supplemental wireless channel. The base station controller then transmits a channel allocation communication to the first wireless base station, the channel allocation communication indicating an identity of the supplemental wireless channel allocated for use by the first wireless base station.
