  • Patent number: 10045211
    Abstract: Authentication and authorization of mobile devices for usage of access points in an alternative network. In an embodiment, a mobile device identifies an access point that is available to provide connectivity. A limited connection is established with the identified access point, which permits only a bandwidth exchange (BX) application to utilize a network to which the identified access point provides access. The BX application is executed to initiate authorization with a remote server over the network. After authorization has been completed, the limited connection is switched to a non-limited connection, in which other applications are permitted to utilize the network, according to terms and conditions associated with the identified access point.

  • Publication number: 20180213078
    Abstract: Application management for a mobile device. In an embodiment, identifier(s) of a mobile device are received over a network. A determination is made as to whether the mobile device has installed a software application based on the identifier(s). When the mobile device is not determined to have installed the software application, a Short Message Service (SMS) message is initiated for providing access to the software application to the mobile device. The access to the software application is provided to the mobile device via the SMS message. After the software application is provided to the mobile device, a determination is made as to whether the mobile device has installed the software application, and, when the mobile device is not determined to have installed the software application, reminder(s) are initiated to the mobile device. Each reminder may comprise an SMS message.

  • Publication number: 20180176845
    Abstract: Optimized offloading of wireless devices to alternative wireless networks. In an embodiment, a sector is determined to be busy based on measurement report(s) associated with the sector, wherein the measurement report(s) indicate at least one performance characteristic of the sector. When the sector is determined to be busy, it is determined whether sector(s) of an alternative network, which overlaps with the sector of the home network, are busy based on at least one performance characteristic of the sector(s) of the alternative network. When the sector of the home network is determined to be busy and the sector(s) of the alternative network are not determined to be busy, transmission of an instruction to offload wireless device(s), connected to the home network within the sector of the home network, to at least one of the sector(s) of the alternative network, is initiated.

  • Publication number: 20170156113
    Abstract: Alternative network access for a mobile device having a first radio and a second radio, or in some cases, only one radio can include using a first radio in a first connection with a first access point. Whether to establish a second connection with a second access point using a second radio is determined. The determination is based on a first set of access conditions associated with the first access point and a second set of access conditions associated with the second access point. The second connection is established with the second access point using the second radio based on the determining, which indicates establishing the second connection.

  • Patent number: 8175036
    Abstract: An access point for wireless transmission of packets to user devices includes an application module and a radio module. If the radio module fails to successfully transmit a packet to a user device, the application module takes the packet from its queue and places it in the radio buffer for retransmission. This greatly increases the speed of retransmission. The application module can obtain information on the success of transmitting the packet directly from the radio module.
