  • Patent number: 10284490
    Abstract: An indicator can be received from a client device. The indicator can indicate an agreement by a user of the client device to share device resources of the client device with an entity distinct from the client device and distinct from the user of the client device. Responsive to receiving from the mobile device the indicator indicating the agreement of the user of the of the mobile device to share the device resources of the mobile device with the entity, a level of a quality of service provided by a communication network to the mobile device can be increased. The mobile device can be allowed to enter sleep mode only after a particular duration of time in which use of the device resources has been shared or when a charge level of a battery providing power to the mobile device falls below a threshold level.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: September 13, 2018
    Date of Patent: May 7, 2019
