  • Patent number: 8670354
    Abstract: The present invention discloses a solution for performing a sharing an ongoing data session between a first user and a group of at least one additional user in a telecommunication system. The basic idea of this invention is to provide a network integration node with a shared streaming session logic, replication logic and group membership management functions of a conference node, like for example the “Push to-talk over Cellular (PoC)” application. Using this functionality the conference system is to be included into the ongoing streaming session, shall invite additional members and forward the streaming traffic to them as well. This results into a shared streaming service using unicast communication resources.

  • Patent number: 8571013
    Abstract: A technique for interconnecting circuit-switched (CS) and packet-switched (PS) domains enables network components (302) having a PS network access to make use of CS telephony services. A method embodiment of this technique comprises the steps of receiving PS control information according to a PS control protocol such as SIP, determining, in response to receipt of the PS control information, CS control information according to a CS control protocol such as DTAP, and sending the determined CS control information to a second network component (324) that is located on an application (or service) layer for provision of CS services, based on the determined CS control information, to the first network component (302).

  • Patent number: 8572620
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method, device and system for management of resource in a communication network having a resource owner (RO) providing the resource and at least one resource user (RU) using the resource. According to the present invention a resource broker is introduced between the resource owner and the at least one resource user. Said broker is arranged to perform a management procedure for deciding whether to perform a allocation, keeping or release of resource. In order to take a decision a resource usage measure (TTL) is used. In accordance with the present invention said measure is updated when user's usage measure (Keep Alive, InterestMsg) informing about the expected usage of the resource by a resource user is obtained. The update is performed by means of a cumulative algorithm taking into account current and past values of the resource usage measure (TTL).

  • Patent number: 8510365
    Abstract: This method for determining locations of service instances for optimising distribution of a service in a network, from a source to a plurality of clients each having predetermined requirements, wherein the network can be modelled by means of a graph, comprises steps of: placing a service instance in each leaf in the graph; and, starting from the leaves, for each service instance: checking whether the service instance when placed in a vertex on the next higher level can fulfill the requirements of all clients to be served by said service instance; and moving or not the service instance one level higher, depending on the result of the checking step.

  • Patent number: 8401032
    Abstract: Methods, devices, and computer programs for improving the efficiency of multi-user multimedia messaging services are disclosed. A multimedia message is sent from an originator user device to an originator server and further to one or more recipient servers to which recipient user devices as addressed are associated to. The one or more recipient servers execute a multicast delivery for distributing the multimedia message to the recipient user devices and/or an improved reporting of a transmission state of the multimedia message by receiving status messages from the recipient user devices, each status message comprising an indication of an individual transmission state of the multi media message at one of the recipient user devices, aggregating the indications into a report representing the transmission state of the multimedia message, and sending the report to the originator server.

  • Patent number: 8098618
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method, network node, router, serving node and system for performing multicast in a point-to-point packet-switched oriented telecommunication network. The basic idea is to introduce pre-configured multicast transmission for parts of a network. This is done by creating pre-configured transport multicast group tunnels between a router and a serving node in order to transport the multicast data. Further the present invention describes the possibility of multiplexing of the multicast data streams on a pre-configured transport multicast group tunnel. In particular the invention is applicable for multicasting in networks, like UMTS with a scarce number of resources, in the IP network between the SGSN and GGSN for example on the Gn interface.

  • Patent number: 8095116
    Abstract: A technique for delivering a multimedia data file, such as an MMS, from an originator having an originator server associated therewith to a recipient having a recipient server associated therewith is provided. The technique comprises establishing a communication path from the originator to the recipient via the originator server and recipient server. The recipient server receives the data file or portions thereof uploaded to the originator server from the originator. Thereafter, the recipient server individually forwards the data file portions received from the originator server without waiting for receipt of the complete data file.

  • Patent number: 7996553
    Abstract: The invention provides a solution for performing multicast for streaming transmission in a telecommunication system. An intermediate node is proposed which is able to connect the functionality of a broadcast/multicast server and of a streaming node. Further the intermediate node is responsible for the establishment of a bearer for multicast transmission. The establishment of a session is done by means of a translation the on-demand single-use signalling into multi-user push signalling. Furthermore an adaptation of the streaming flow for a whole multicast group or for individual subgroups of a multicast group is performed.

  • Patent number: 7966404
    Abstract: A system, comprising various methods and apparatus providing a transparent communication session setup and control for communication sessions involving different communication capabilities, is disclosed. The system receives a request for a communication session at a proxy apparatus, the request being originated from a first subscriber to the communication session using a first group of terminals. The system identifies at least a second subscriber to the communication session using a second group of terminals. The system evaluates types of communication being available for the first group of terminals and at least the second group of terminals on the basis of the request. The system sets up terminal sub-sessions from the proxy apparatus to the first group of terminals and to at least the second group of terminals according to types of communication being available for the first group of terminals and at least the second group of terminals.
