  • Patent number: 6711157
    Abstract: A system and method of creating subscriber services in an Internet Protocol (IP)-based telecommunications network. A service creation architecture includes a Service Component Creator (SCC) that creates service proxy objects, and posts them on a Lookup Service (LUS). The LUS is accessible through the Internet by Enterprise Service Creators (ESCs). The ESCs download the posted service proxy objects from the LUS, and customize the downloaded objects to create customized services for enterprise users. The ESCs upload the customized service proxy objects to an Enterprise LUS, and the, Enterprise LUS downloads the customized service proxy objects to a Service Management Unit (SMU) serving the end user. A gatekeeper serving the end users utilizes the service proxy code downloaded to the SMU to determine the location of a Service Implementation Repository (SIR) that stores actual service code for implementing the customized service.

  • Publication number: 20030046443
    Abstract: The invention relates to various embodiments of a method for updating a mobile agent (MA) providing services. The MA resides in a site in a data communications network. In a preferred embodiment a new MA, comprising the desired services, is created. The new MA moves to the site of the old MA where its data is customised. The method then waits until none of the old services in the old MA is running before it deactivates the old MA and activates the new MA. In addition, two further embodiments are provided. Furthermore, an interface manager (IM) for use with interpreted object-oriented programs is provided. The IM acts as a proxy for inter-object calls and has a redirection table in order to redirect object calls to objects that replaced old objects. Also, a method for updating an MA with an IM is provided.

  • Publication number: 20020160810
    Abstract: An Intelligent Network Service Control Point (IN-SCP) and method of implementing user services in a telecommunications network utilizing user-defined Call Processing Language (CPL) scripts. The IN-SCP stores at least one CPL script that provides a first service when the script is executed. The IN-SCP includes a CPL script interpreter for mapping semantics of the CPL script to IN procedural detection points. When the IN-SCP receives a service trigger from a call server such as a Mobile Switching Center (MSC), the IN-SCP executes the CPL script. If the user also subscribes to service provider-defined IN services, the IN-SCP executes the service provider-defined IN services first, and then executes the CPL script after determining that the script is consistent with the IN services.

  • Patent number: 6233449
    Abstract: An operation and maintenance control point (OMCP) operates at an intermediate level in a telecommunications network between the network elements and the network management system (NMS). The OMCP reduces the processing load on the NMS, and rather than reporting symptoms, provides the NMS with suggested corrective actions to correct reported problems. The NMS executes the suggested corrective actions and compares the actual results in the network with predicted results. Feedback on the results is then provided to the OMCP to improve its analysis and provide more effective corrective actions are suggested if the problem recurs. By automatically interfacing with the NMS, which analyzes and executes the suggested corrective actions, the OMCP creates a self-engineering telecommunications network.

  • Patent number: 6178181
    Abstract: A mapping function and method for mapping a Signaling System 7 (SS7) telecommunication signaling message from a Signaling Connection Control Part (SCCP) protocol layer to an Internet Protocol (IP) protocol layer in order to transmit the SS7 signaling message over a data network from an origination node to a destination node. The mapping function receives the SS7 signaling message from the SCCP protocol layer by sending and receiving Message Transfer Protocol (MTP) primitives from the mapping function to the SCCP protocol layer. The mapping function then maps the received SS7 signaling message into an IP message by mapping MTP primitives into IP primitives, mapping the SS7 message address into an IP message address, and utilizing a user interface to set IP protocol parameters that cannot be transferred by the SCCP protocol layer. The mapping function then sends the mapped IP message to the IP protocol layer by sending and receiving IP primitives from the mapping function to the IP protocol layer.

  • Patent number: 6115463
    Abstract: A common channel signaling system interconnects two home location registers. A data administrator responds to a network operator request by sending commands to a first (originating) home location register to have subscriber data extracted and formatted for communication over the common channel signaling system. Prior to communication, the first home location register verifies a common channel signaling system functionality level of a second (destination) home location register. If verified, the communication is sent, unformatted, and the included subscriber data stored. A data network and service management access layer further interconnect the two home location registers. The data administrator responds to a generic network operator migration request by generating home location register specific commands instructing the first home location register to extract subscriber data for transfer over the data network and through the service management access layer to the second home location register for storage.

  • Patent number: 6041327
    Abstract: A client sends a first message (such as a stored procedure function call) to a server relational database identifying notifications concerning database access related events of interest. Responsive to this first message, logic within the server relational database monitors instances of database accesses, determines whether any of those accesses relate to events of interest, and then stores those determined events. The client also sends a second message (such as blocking stored procedure function call) requesting that it be notified of any stored events of interest. Responsive to this second message, the logic within the server relational database checks to see whether any events have been stored, sends a notification message containing an identification of those stored events to the client, and then clears the stored events. These notifications concerning external events of interest may then be processed by a service management application executed within the client.

  • Patent number: 5999973
    Abstract: External entity data access to the customer administrative system and database network elements of a telecommunications network is provided through a web-server and an Internet connection. The integrity and security of any stored data is protected through the use of a firewall implemented at the web-server. In one aspect, an interface is connected between the customer administrative system and database network elements and is also connected to the web-server to handle external entity requests by specifying not only which actions need to be taken but also routing the request to a proper destination. In a second aspect, the interface is by-passed with respect to the handling of external entity requests, with the web-server specifying the actions to be taken and routing the request to the proper destination.

  • Patent number: 5991803
    Abstract: A service creation environment (SCE) generates generic service creation information defining a certain service. The generic service creation information is then processed by a service execution agent for mapping onto service creation information that is specific to the service logic execution environment (SLEE) of a service control point (SCP) upon which the service is to be executed and provided. This SLEE specific service creation information is then down-loaded to the service logic execution environment, and converted in a conventional manner to service execution related information. The generic service creation information comprises only a certain limited number of primitives (instructions or commands) operating on a certain limited number of service independent building blocks (SIBs).
