  • Patent number: 8848531
    Abstract: Computer-readable media for dynamic quality of service assignment are described. In embodiments, a data packet is received that is part of a communications stream and a dynamically modifiable quality of service indicator (DMQOSI) is embedded into the data packet wherein, in various embodiments, the DMQOSI indicates a prescribed quality of service that is associated with the data packet and is modifiable prior to completing a communication of the communications stream. In various embodiments, the data packet is communicated from a source to a destination that at least periodically references the DMQOSI to ensure that the data packet is being communicated consistent with the prescribed quality of service associated with the data packet.

  • Patent number: 8726376
    Abstract: Methods, systems and devices examine data flows in a communication system control network for known malware threats and suspicious properties typically associated with malware threats. A policy management system inside the control network accesses a user repository and a charging network, and performs pattern matching and/or observed behavior detection methods to determine if the data flows carry content (e.g., malware) that poses a security risk to network or wireless devices. The policy management system generates policy rules based on user preferences and risk-level. The policy management system sends the generated policy rules to a gateway/PCEF, which blocks the data flows, allows the data flows, or restricts the data flow based on the policy rules.

  • Patent number: 8699332
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method of determining policy control decisions in a telecommunications network. The method comprises the steps of receiving a predictive indicator from a forecasting system, wherein the predictive indicator includes predictive network resource utilization information, responsive to receiving a service request from a gateway, determining a policy decision based on the predictive indicator, and sending the policy decision to the gateway.

  • Patent number: 8589590
    Abstract: A method and system are provided to select address providers that provide mobile internet protocol devices with addresses for communication. An embodiment of the method includes obtaining an address request having a dynamic indicator. Upon obtaining an address request with a dynamic indicator, associating the dynamic indicator with one or more address providers based on the dynamic indicator. The address request is then communicated to one of the address providers associated with the dynamic indicator.

  • Patent number: 8213423
    Abstract: A method, system, and medium are provided for accounting for data transfer across a packet-switched network. A unique session identifier is generated at an accounting service node and provided to accounting nodes. Accounting nodes collect data transfer information corresponding to a session and associate the data transfer information with the unique session identifier. The data transfer information is provided to the accounting service node, which generates accounting records based on that information.

  • Patent number: 7793165
    Abstract: A method and system are provided to select address providers that provide mobile internet protocol devices with addresses for communication. An embodiment of the method includes obtaining an address request having a dynamic indicator and a failover counter. Upon obtaining an address request with the dynamic indicator and the failover counter, associating the failover counter with one or more address providers based on the failover counter. The address request is then communicated to one of the address providers associated with the failover provider.
