  • Publication number: 20210400425
    Abstract: A method for delivering to a user a dedicated service restricted to a predefined service area includes, performing an access request to a dedicated service. The dedicated service is delivered from a server through a data network between a user device and the server. The method also includes determining a service profile associated with the user, and assigning to the user device a dedicated communication channel for the dedicated service. The method further includes starting a communication session with the server through the data network according to the assigned dedicated communication channel, and performing an authentication request to the server. If the service authenticates the user successfully, the position of the user is obtained, and the dedicated service is delivered to the user device.

  • Patent number: 8938249
    Abstract: A method for controlling admission of calls to a mobile communication network having cells associated with at least one determined threshold level of operation suitable for managing cell shrinking phenomena. The method includes the operation of detecting call requests from a cell edge affected by such cell shrinking phenomena, variably exceeding the determined threshold level in uplink. A method for admitting calls to the mobile communication network in both uplink and downlink on the basis of the evaluation of the actual system load is also proposed. Preferred application is in UMTS mobile networks.

  • Patent number: 8149264
    Abstract: A video-communication service in which a separation in different components of the video-communication is caused at the telephone equipment of the users, e.g., a separation in a video and in a voice component. The different components are transmitted on different connections between the telephone equipment of the users. The users have the possibility of selectively dropping any one of the different connections.

  • Patent number: 8085709
    Abstract: A method for managing radio resources in a mobile communications network having a plurality of cells, wherein the radio resources are managed by a plurality of radio resources management procedures arranged for having available at least one maximum downlink total load value representative of the maximum total load level of each cell of the network; and for measuring at least one uplink load value and at least one current downlink total load value of each cell of the network.

  • Patent number: 8064915
    Abstract: A method for providing telecommunications services in an environment in which a plurality of telecommunications systems operate according to different standards (WLAN, UMTS) and are reachable from a terminal (T) in an integrated manner, wherein at least one of said services can be provided by more systems. Upon the provision request for the above-cited service, the method according to the invention envisages the steps of: —verifying the availability for the provision of the requested service, of at least a first (WLAN) and a second (UMTS) system, and —selecting, in an automatic and dynamic way, one between at least said first (WLAN) and said second (UMTS) system for the provision of the service being requested.

  • Patent number: 7397783
    Abstract: In a code division multiple access transmission system (CDMA), codes are generated according to a tree structure organized on a plurality of layers. Each re-allocation is considered as an access request to the system by a new user and the re-allocation codes are transmitted to each involved user through the respective re-allocation messages. Re-allocation messages to users having the same spreading factor (SF), and hence the same service bit-rate (kR) are substantially sent simultaneously, in order to reduce to a minimum the time required for the re-allocation operation.
