  • Patent number: 10201035
    Abstract: A method for IP [=Internet Protocol] communication between a mobile terminal and its correspondent node in a mobile radio network. The method comprises establishing an IP connection between the mobile terminal and its correspondent node. After detecting a period of inactivity in the IP connection, keep-alive messages are sent via the IP connection at predetermined intervals, which are varied. The method comprises monitoring the lengths of several periods of inactivity at which the mobile radio network disconnects the IP connection.

  • Patent number: 9883548
    Abstract: Systems and methods for maintaining an IP (Internet protocol) connection in a mobile network are disclosed. Techniques are disclosed wherein an optimal keep-alive interval is determined, and dynamic adjustments of keep-alive message interval are employed to prevent detection and counter measure. Keep-Alive schedule information may be determined at a first mobile terminal for a network, and subsequently used for a second mobile terminal when the second mobile terminal encounters that same network. In some embodiments, the Keep-Alive schedule information is stored at a network-node device. In some embodiments, the first mobile terminal and the second mobile terminal are cellular phones.

    Abstract: A method for IP [=Internet Protocol] communication between a mobile terminal and its correspondent node in a mobile radio network. The method comprises establishing an IP connection between the mobile terminal and its correspondent node. After detecting a period of inactivity in the IP connection, keep-alive messages are sent via the IP connection at predetermined intervals, which are varied. The method comprises monitoring the lengths of several periods of inactivity at which the mobile radio network disconnects the IP connection. Based on the monitored lengths of periods of inactivity, a maximum interval (TINT) between keep-alive messages is determined such that the maximum interval meets a predetermined criterion of statistical confidence, and the interval between keep-alive messages is set to the maximum interval (TINT).

  • Patent number: 8886176
    Abstract: Systems and methods for mobile application traffic optimization are disclosed. In one aspect, embodiments of the present disclosure include a distributed proxy and cache system, including, a local proxy on a mobile device for intercepting a data request made via a mobile device, and a proxy server coupled to the mobile device and a content server to which the data request is directed. In one embodiment, the local proxy can forward the data request to the proxy server for transmission to the content server for a response to the data request. In addition, the proxy server sends the data request to the content server independent of activities on the local proxy and notifies the local proxy when changed or different content on the content server is detected for the data request.

  • Patent number: 8873411
    Abstract: Method and apparatus for provisioning an e-mail service to a mobile terminal in an e-mail system that uses e-mail addresses comprising a domain part. The apparatus maintains a list of good setting parameter sets versus e-mail domain parts. It receives an e-mail address and user authentication information from a user and compares the domain part of the received address with domain parts in the list of good parameter sets. If a match is found, e-mail service is provisioned with the matching parameter set. If no match is found, the apparatus requests and receives further parameters from the user, including an e-mail server address, and provisions the e-mail service with the further parameters. If the provisioning with the further parameters is successful, the domain part and the further parameters are used to generate a new setting parameter set in the list of good setting parameter sets.

  • Patent number: 8805334
    Abstract: Methods and systems for maintaining mobile terminal information for secure email communications are provided. Information concerning multiple mobile terminals are maintained. Such information may include encryption information and an identifier for each mobile terminal. A service activation code that includes encryption information and an identifier from an authenticated user of the mobile terminal is received. The encryption information may be provided to a connectivity function for use in establishing an encrypted data channel. The established encrypted data channel may then be used to convey e-mail communications to and from the mobile terminal.
