  • Patent number: 10349257
    Abstract: There is provided a method and device for provisioning emergency number information on a user equipment. When a dialed number matches an emergency number from the provisioned emergency number information, the user equipment selects either the circuit switched domain or the packet switched domain and executes a call setup procedure for that domain.

  • Publication number: 20190190775
    Abstract: A method, computer program product, user equipment (UE) and packet data network gateway (P-GW) are provided for activating “Data Off” services using protocol configuration options (PCO). The UE sends a first indication to a first network node as part of the PCO. The first indication includes a Data Off indication indicating whether a “Data Off” service is activated. The first network node may be a P-GW. If the Data Off indication indicates that the “Data Off” service is deactivated, the UE receives downlink data from the first network node. If the Data Off indication indicates that the “Data Off” service is activated, the UE either receives no downlink data from the first network node or receives an error message from the first network node.

  • Publication number: 20190174282
    Abstract: A method for transferring data using optimized short message transport includes receiving at a first network node an attach request message. The attach request message includes short-message data. The first network node receives from a second network node a short-message data response message. The short-message data response message includes at least one of an address for a short message service center, an indication that indicates no mobile-terminated message is pending for the UE, or a short-message entity destination address.
