  • Publication number: 20160269496
    Abstract: A method and an application server for executing a service-related operation for a device user in communication with an opposite communication entity, wherein the device user has a subscription that is valid for a set of devices. The application server obtains a location of a primary device assigned to indicate the device user's location, and also a location of each of at least one secondary device of the set of devices. The service-related operation is then executed with restriction to the primary device and to those of the secondary devices, if any, that are located within a predetermined proximity range to the primary device, i.e. presumably within reach for the user. Unnecessary signaling and alerting can thereby be avoided since the service-related operation will not be executed for any secondary device that is beyond reach for the user and thus cannot be used for communication.

  • Patent number: 9246955
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for handling a Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) OPTIONS capability query message in a communication network. A SIP proxy node receives a SIP OPTIONS message from a querying node. It sends the message to a plurality of devices, and receives a response from at least two of the plurality of devices. Each response includes an identity of the responding device and an indication of the capabilities of the responding device. Each received response is stored in a memory, and a reply message is generated. The reply message includes the identities and capabilities of all of the responding devices. This reply message is then sent to the querying node. This allows the querying node to receive capability information relating to all of the callee's devices rather than just the one that responds first.

  • Patent number: 8848690
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method, a system and a server for automatically discovering the common Multimedia Service Capability, and computer program. This solution avoid unnecessary use of the radio interface and is based on making use of the circuit switched network, e.g. the Intelligent network IN, as trigger to the packet switched network to find out about the calling as well as the called user's multimedia capabilities during a voice call. If there is a positive capability discovery result out of this for both users, the network will send a message to each of the two mobile phones that they should notify the users e.g. by displaying an icon above a soft button. It can be that the phone displays a shared multimedia-Image icon, if this was the only commonly supported capability of both users, up to a whole range of more or less complicated SMM services.

  • Patent number: 8730942
    Abstract: A method and arrangement for enabling multimedia during an ongoing circuit-switched call between a first mobile terminal and a second terminal, wherein the first terminal uses a first access having constraints by not admitting simultaneous packet-switched and circuit-switched communication. A change of connection is detected from the first access to a second access having no such constraints by admitting simultaneous packet-switched and circuit-switched communication. A capability query is then sent to the second terminal in response to said detection. When the requested capabilities are received from the second terminal, possible multimedia applications and/or services are indicated to the user according to the received capabilities.
