  • Patent number: 9426643
    Abstract: A network device receives a personal Mobile Directory Number (MDN) associated with an individual subscriber, wherein the individual subscriber is further associated with one or more subscriber devices. The network device receives an additional MDN assigned to the individual subscriber, and sends a notification, requesting the individual subscriber's acceptance of the additional MDN assigned to the individual subscriber, to at least one of the one or more subscriber devices. The network device receives, from one of the one or more subscriber devices, an acceptance of the additional MDN from the individual subscriber. The network device links the additional MDN, the personal MDN, and the one or more subscriber devices, within an Implicit Registration Set (IRS) at a Home Subscriber Server (HSS) in an Internet Protocol Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) network for routing calls to the individual subscriber's additional MDN or personal MDN at the one or more subscriber devices.

  • Patent number: 9220117
    Abstract: A system may include a first Internet Protocol Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) network comprising one or more devices configured to receive a first registration request for a first mobile directory number (MDN), associated with a subscriber, wherein the first MDN corresponds to a home mobile directory number with respect to the first IMS network; and register the first MDN with the first IMS network. The one or more device may be further configured to detect a service point trigger, associated with the subscriber, to register a second MDN, foreign to the first IMS network, with a second IMS network, in response to the first MDN being registered; and send a second registration request to the second IMS network, to register the second MDN with the second IMS network.

  • Patent number: 9178988
    Abstract: A user device may identify a received a signal indicating an incoming call; determine that another user device has answered the call; generate call log information that indicates that the other user device has answered the call; and store or output the generated call log information. Additionally, or alternatively, a set of user devices may receive a ring signal indicating an incoming call; a particular user device, in the set of user devices, may answer the call; and another user device, in the set of user devices, may store a unified call log. The unified call log may indicate that the particular user device answered the call, and may further indicate that the other user device did not miss the call.
