  • Publication number: 20220295309
    Abstract: According to some embodiments, a method performed by a non-real time radio access network intelligent controller (NonRT-RIC) network node comprises obtaining data for improving radio resource management (RRM) of a radio access network (RAN) and building an A1 interface message comprising one or more enrichment information (EI) elements based on the obtained data. Each of the one or more EI elements comprises an identifier of one or more wireless devices, a type indicator indicating a type of enrichment data included in the EI element, and the enrichment data. The method further comprises transmitting the AI interface message to a near real time radio access network intelligent controller (NearRT-RIC).

  • Patent number: 9871793
    Abstract: The invention consists of a new registration and authentication protocol for between a Mobile Node and a Home Agent. The new protocol uses a novel messaging sequence to request registration, authentication and authorization of the Mobile Node when it is located on a foreign network, and the novel protocol will avoid some of the standard registration and authentication protocol messages in order to eliminate the problems associated with re-transmission errors.

  • Patent number: 9615246
    Abstract: The present invention facilitates dynamic allocation of home IP addresses for a mobile node, when it is roaming away from a home network and supported by a foreign network. After the mobile node obtains a care-of address from the foreign network, a stateful or stateless configuration process is used to dynamically allocate a home IP address for the mobile node. In the stateful approach, a binding update message is used to request a home IP address for the mobile node from its home agent. In a stateless embodiment, the mobile node will create a home IP address, which is sent to the home agent for verification via the binding update message. The home agent will receive the home IP address in the binding update message, verify the home IP address, and send acknowledgement of the verification, assuming the home IP address is verified, to the mobile node.

  • Patent number: 9319975
    Abstract: A system and method is provided for performing an access network discovery and selection function in a communication system. An access network discovery and selection function (“ANDSF”) server is operable with a Third Generation Partnership Project (“3GPP”) radio access network and a Wireless Fidelity (“Wi-Fi”) radio access network coupled to a core network. The ANDSF server is configured to communicate with a user equipment over an enhanced S14 interface. The enhanced S14 interface comprises Wi-Fi radio access technology data including a basis service set (“BSS”) load indication, security information, quality of experience information, backhaul network bandwidth and average throughput. The ANDSF server is also configured to provide policy information to the user equipment based on conditions in the Wi-Fi radio access network and the 3GPP radio access network.

  • Patent number: 9087018
    Abstract: A system and method for transferring application-specific functionality from a mobile handset to a wireless network associated with the mobile handset. A network component of the system communicates with a virtual copy of the mobile application on behalf of the handset while the handset is not actively using the application and performs any necessary application execution on behalf of the handset. The network component transfers execution back to the handset when the handset resumes active use of the mobile application.

  • Patent number: 9049621
    Abstract: Various embodiments are described to assist in reducing handoff delays and the blackout period(s) associated with inter AN (access network) hard handoffs. The hard handoff procedure of method disclosed herein establishes or initiates a connection (A10-type connection) between a target AN and a packet data serving node (PDSN), unlike known hard handoff approaches that wait until traffic channel assignment to establish or initiate such connection. The PDSN may optionally bicast data packets to both the source and target ANs since each is communicatively coupled to the PDSN during a given time period. In the event bicasting is unavailable or unused, a communication tunnel between the source and target ANs may be created and used to transmit data packets between them.

  • Patent number: 8982893
    Abstract: A system, method, and node providing a predefined Quality of Service (QoS) level to an Over The Top (OTT) service provider in a telecommunications network. A User Equipment (UE) initiates an IP-based application session (e.g., Hyper Text Transfer Protocol (HTTP) session) with the OTT service provider by sending an application-dependent message toward an OTT application server. The method begins with a proxy node in the telecommunications network intercepting the application-dependent message. The proxy node then modifies the application-dependent message by adding a subscriber identification to the header of the application-dependent message. The proxy node forwards the modified application-dependent message to the OTT application server. The OTT application server then sends a request having the subscriber identification to the telecommunications network with a QoS requirement for the HTTP session. Next, a network policy node determines an appropriate QoS level for the subscriber.

  • Publication number: 20140259012
    Abstract: A system and method for controlling mobility of a subscriber-specific Virtual Machine (VM) instance from one VM to another VM using a network node (such as an Evolved Packet Gateway (EPG)) in an Evolved Packet Core (EPC) in a mobile communication network. The EPG may control the VM mobility for each subscriber in the context of cloud-based services or virtualized applications. The EPG may use GPRS Tunneling Protocol (GTP) tunnels rooted at the EPG to Data Center (DC) VMs to govern intra-DC and inter-DC mobility of VMs and also to tie in the mobility triggers to service provider's policies. Each VM session for the mobile subscribers is anchored in the EPG, which then assumes the control of VM mobility for each subscriber through the new GTP interface with the VMs. The EPC-based control of VM mobility can provide optimization of cloud services accessed by a subscriber over a mobile connection.

  • Patent number: 8825070
    Abstract: The present invention supports a communication protocol on a wireless communication network to allocate network resources. The radio network controller maintains quality of service (QoS) profiles. A serving node determines the type of application in a communication call and determines a QoS policy it transmits to the radio network. The radio network identifies the QoS profile based on the received policy and allocates network resources before announcing the call to an access terminal.

  • Patent number: 8804625
    Abstract: To communicate in a wireless network, resources of at least one node (20A) of the wireless network are pre-allocated (44). The pre-allocated resources (44) comprise resources normally allocated in response to a call setup request. A first call setup request is received after pre-allocating the resources, and in response to the first call setup request, a packet-switched real-time, interactive communications session is established through the wireless network using the pre-allocated resources of the at least one node (20A).

  • Publication number: 20140149498
    Abstract: A user in a telecommunications network is able to share self-generated content to a list of friends dynamically created according to a location of each friend. The user checks with the network operator to determine whether friends from a list available to a Local Content Service (LCS) are nearby. The LCS utilizes a Location Management Server, Mapping Server and Media Server to manage the list of friends. Registered friends are determined to be in a predetermined radius of the user and the list of friends in the radius is provided to the user. The user selects the friends from the list and uploads the self-generated content to the LCS where a URI is assigned to the content and the URI is forwarded to the selected friends.
