    Abstract: Embodiments of a User Equipment (UE) for initiating a service in a cellular network are disclosed herein. The UE can include processing circuitry to initiate the service for a service type using a current domain. Additionally, the UE can detect a service initiation failure for the service. Moreover, the UE can generate domain selection assistance information (DSAI) based on the detected service initiation failure. The DSAI can include the service type and the current domain. Furthermore, the UE can include transceiver circuitry to send the DSAI to a network entity. The network entity can be a diagnostic and assistance server. The sending of the DSAI can be configured to assist the network entity in selecting a preferred domain for the service type for the case when the UE initiates a new service.

  • Patent number: 9635530
    Abstract: Embodiments of a mobile device, a User Equipment (UE), and method for supporting emergency calls on a packet-switched network are generally described herein. In some embodiments, the UE may be configured to support emergency calls in accordance with a 3GPP protocol and with eCall in an IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) session. The UE may comprise hardware processing circuitry configured to transmit traffic packets to an Evolved Node-B (eNB) for forwarding to a receiving station, which may be a Public Safety Answer Point (PSAP). In some embodiments, the transmission of traffic packets during a packetization period may be restricted to one of transmission of voice packets or transmission of data packets. In some embodiments, at least some of the data packets may include Minimum Set of Emergency Related Data (MSD), and the IMS session may be configured in accordance with Real Time Transport Protocol (RTP).

  • Patent number: 9531806
    Abstract: In a method for requesting media replication in a collaborative communication session, a message is sent which specifies that a communication medium for a collaborative communication session, which is currently being transmitted to at least one terminal, should additionally be transmitted to at least one other terminal, with the at least one other terminal being indicated in the message as the recipient of the communication medium. In a method for assigning a communication medium for a collaborative communication session, a corresponding message is received, and the communication medium is assigned to the at least one other terminal as the recipient of the communication medium. The methods are carried out by appropriately designed apparatuses.

  • Patent number: 9369912
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for switching internet protocol (IP) flows from a first communication path to a second communication path are disclosed herein. A user equipment (UE) may include an exchange component, a session component, and a communication component. The exchange component exchanges second communication path availability information between the UE and another UE by sending and receiving session initiation protocol (SIP) messages that include second communication path availability information over the first communication path. The session component changes the communication session by re-routing traffic flows to the second communication path based on the exchanged second path availability information. The communication component sends to and receives from the other UE data corresponding to an IP flow over the second communication path.
