  • Publication number: 20050108359
    Abstract: In a method for reducing notifications associated with incoming emails destined to a user using a wireless device, after receiving an incoming email, a relay server checks whether there is undelivered email destined to the user. If there is no undelivered email, then a notification is sent to the user's wireless device. If there are undelivered emails, then the relay server calculates a lapse time since the last notification was sent to the user. If the lapse time is greater than a predefined period, a notification is sent to the user.

  • Publication number: 20050096004
    Abstract: A highly integrated GPS RF Front End which uses a single conversion stage employs an image rejection mixer stage to eliminate the need for an image reject RF bandpass filter. Also a relatively high sample rate A/D is employed which allows a timeless monolitic IF Filter to be used. The disclosure also discusses a GPS Front End topology that is easily integrated from industry standard building blocks. With the broad variation in potential receiver designs, the present invention includes some specific receiver topologies that lend themselves to a high level of integration. The specific designs presented here are comprised of industry standard building blocks and functions that have been described elsewhere in the related art.

  • Patent number: 6822954
    Abstract: A gateway has a stack with a bearer adaptation layer and an HTTP client. The gateway may be connected by an HTTP link to an origin server and by a bearer interface to a mobile network. It may also be connected by an HTTP link to a WTA server. A context manager is a user on the stack and supports interfaces to allow access to external entities in a versatile manner. An event manager captures events including billing events and writes to an event log and to a billing log. A management entity provides overall control and sets configurations for the event manager.

  • Publication number: 20030074313
    Abstract: A gateway routes signals between a WAP mobile phone and an application on a Web server. The application generates a message for each of a number of events recognized according to the service being provided. These messages are transmitted to the gateway. A billing manager in the gateway directs the messages in real time to a real time mediation device if they relate to a pre-pay service, or alternatively to a billing log for off-line processing. The network operator operating the gateway can thus charge in a manner relating to services provided instead of simply call duration.

  • Publication number: 20020015403
    Abstract: A gateway (1) has a stack (20) with a bearer adaptation layer (21) and an HTTP client (29). The gateway may be connected by an HTTP link to an origin server (10) and by a bearer interface to a mobile network (3). It may also be connected by an HTTP link to a WTA server (5). A context manager (25) is a user on the stack (20) and supports interfaces (26 to 30) to allow access to external entities in a versatile manner. An event manager (35) captures events including billing events and writes to an event log (36) and to a billing log (37). A management entity (40) provides overall control and sets configurations for the event manager (35).
