  • Publication number: 20070197227
    Abstract: Under one aspect, a method of providing combinational services to a user endpoint includes providing a radio access network in communication with the user endpoint; providing a circuit-switched (CS) network in communication with the radio access network, the CS network comprising at least one mobile switching center (MSC) capable of providing a voice service to the user endpoint via the radio access network; providing an IP multimedia subsystem (IMS) core in communication with the radio access network, the IMS core comprising at least one call state control function (CSCF); providing one or more application servers (AS) in communication with the IMS core, the one or more AS capable of providing a corresponding one or more data services to the user endpoint via the CSCF and radio access network; providing a serving node (SN) in communication with the CS network and the IMS core; configuring logic in the MSC to send a first pre-defined message to the SN in response to a trigger detection point (TDP) that is tri

  • Patent number: 7213068
    Abstract: A policy management system implements a programmable policy-based approach for managing network elements in a telecommunication network. The policy management system includes one or more policy proxies associated with the network elements and a central policy processing point in communication with the policy proxies. The policy proxies are configured to notify the policy processing point of events occurring in the network. The policy processing point is run-time programmable with one or more policies to process such events and to notify one or more of the policy proxies of actions to be taken in response thereto. The policy proxies implement these actions at the network elements they represent.

  • Publication number: 20060089999
    Abstract: Various embodiments are described to provide wireless download services that are more robust than those currently available. Signaling between and among the user equipment (UE) (101) obtaining download service, one or more IMS (IP multimedia subsystem) servers (151), and the download server (161) from which the content is obtained enable an improved level of service. Some improvements that may be realized include guaranteed QoS levels for content downloads, user selection of QoS (in real-time and per content request, possibly), flexible pricing options (e.g., per session, content-based, QoS-based billing), and authentication on a per-content basis.

  • Patent number: 6240448
    Abstract: Method and system for representing different types of information on a wide area network in a form suitable for access over an audio interface (12). Audio enabled pages (29) are created to link particular text data, which data can be from the World Wide Web (WWW). The audio enabled pages (29) can be retrieved by an audio web server (16, 18) for interpreting the pages into audio which is displayed at the audio interface (12). Audio input means are created to traverse the links of the audio enable pages (29). A user can use the keypad of the phone (12) or spoken commands to traverse the audio menus. In addition, dynamic audio input means can be created to selectively traverse a database of the WWW information.
