  • Publication number: 20080107082
    Abstract: The present invention provides a mobile communications apparatus, which optimizes handover timing and avoids communications interruptions with a base station. A handover timing calculating function 23, which computes a handover timing, is provided in either a mobile station 10 or base station A (20-A) or B (20-B). The handover timing calculating function 23 sets handover timing from a handover point “G”, which has reception power as a reference, to a point in time “H”, which moves up the required boot-up time for an application that the mobile station 10 is at least currently using.

  • Publication number: 20040181450
    Abstract: A system for collecting marketing information enables manufacturers to efficiently gather marketing information and provide incentives to customers for the information. A retail store writes read-permission information in information storage media of a product at the time of checkout (step S2). A customer reads product identification information from the information storage media of a purchased product on condition that the information storage media stores the read-permission information (step S3). The customer transmits the product identification information and his/her customer information from a customer terminal (step S4). A manufacturer server receives the product identification information and the customer information from the customer terminal (step S5) and stores them in a relational structure, and also manages the provision status of incentives offered to the customer providing the information.

  • Publication number: 20040156487
    Abstract: A wireless tag 1 carried by a user sends a user ID stored in an internal memory to a terminal 21 with wireless signals. The terminal 21 sends the user ID from the wireless tag 1 to a messaging server 3. The messaging server 3 relates the user ID with the content (acquired from a content server 4) desired by the user of the user ID, stores them and delivers to the terminal 21 the content corresponding to the user ID from the terminal 21. The terminal 21 outputs the delivered contents to a display unit and so on. The wireless tag 1 moves depending on the movement of the user, the user ID is sent to the messaging server 3 from a terminal 2i where the user has moved, and the content is delivered to the terminal 2i. In this way, the user can receive the delivery of the content with the terminal where the user has moved.

  • Patent number: 6594490
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a mobile communication system. Particularly, the present invention provides a mobile communication system that has functions of autonomously relieving and recovering from a station-location-information loss phenomenon which may be caused when the system performs switching between active and standby home location registers in response to an occurrence of a fault. This mobile communication system has home location registers, visitor location registers, mobile switching centers, and mobile stations. In this mobile communication system, each of the home location register comprises a rerouting information acquisition section for performing routing information acquisition processing when receiving in response to a routing information acquisition message, which is sent out to one of the visitor location registers a response message indicating that a corresponding one of the mobile stations is not present.

  • Patent number: 6549775
    Abstract: A mobile communication system employs narrow paging areas for calling mobile stations without increasing location registration requests to a location management center. This system reduces useless calls and improves the efficiency of use of radio resources. Each local area (1-3) of the system is divided into narrow paging areas (1-4). A storage unit (2-1) is installed in each base station (1-5) or exchange station (1-2), to register mobile stations (1-6). When a base station receives a location registration request from a mobile station, the base station registers the mobile station in the storage unit, and if necessary, transmits a location registration request to the location management center.
