  • Patent number: 8542835
    Abstract: When a network pages the temporary user mobile identifier of a mobile station, the mobile station sends a response to the network. Next, the network checks the authenticity of the user using a ciphering key, corresponding to the temporary user mobile identifier and a random number. If the temporary user mobile identifier is authenticated, a normal incoming call acceptance procedure is executed. If the mobile station is authenticated although the temporary user mobile identifier is wrong, the network reassigns a new temporary user mobile identifier to the mobile station and stops the current communication. In communication, the network and the mobile station mutually notify encipherment-onset time and negotiate about encipherment manner with each other. In addition, diversity handover is commenced upon a call attempt. Furthermore, if a branch replacement is necessary, the current branch is replaced by new branches capable of executing the diversity handover.

  • Patent number: 8331935
    Abstract: When a new call occurs to or from the mobile station capable of treating a plurality of calls simultaneously, the mobile station uses the same branch structure and the same communication frequency band for all of calls. Additionally, when a new call occurs to or from the mobile station capable of treating a plurality of calls simultaneously, a branch structure and a communication frequency band, which can continue all of the calls, are selected and used.

  • Patent number: 7853278
    Abstract: Time required before PoC communication starts, in the case where a communication channel on the destination side has not been established, is shortened, and convenience of users is enhanced. A request for establishing a communication channel used for PoC communication is sent from a terminal TA. Immediately after receiving this request, call processing for establishing a communication channel to a terminal TC other than the terminal TA is started. In parallel with this call processing, processing after sending a response to the request is performed. Thereby, response to a communication channel connection request, SIP Registration processing and Invitation processing on the originating side and the processing on the destination side are performed in parallel, so that connection time can be shortened, and PoC communication can be started early.
