  • Patent number: 6163546
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method and a system for transmitting short messages between a short message service center (SC), a fixed part (FP), like a base station and a portable part (PP), like a mobile station. In accordance with the invention, a data transfer protocol at least partly complying with the DECT system is used between the portable and fixed part and a data transfer protocol that is at least partly in accordance with the GSM system is used between the fixed part (FP) and the service center (SC). The solution according to the invention provides transmission of short messages within the DECT system and between the DECT system and an external system through a GSM type short message service center.

  • Patent number: 6122498
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for cordlessly connecting a data terminal to a data transmission network using the DECT telecommunications system. In the method of the invention, the portable radio part (PP) and fixed radio part (FP) insert signalling information according to the V.24, for example, in frames complying with the DECT protocol to be radio transmitted via the air interface. When using signalling internal to the data channel it is advantageous to use an auxiliary protocol complying e.g. with the V.110 standard. Local signalling can also be used, in which case the data channel need not be used for signalling during data transmission. The method can also be used to transfer the automatic call setup commands according to the V.25bis standard. The method of the invention facilitates a short-range cordless data connection which is compatible with other DECT applications and which can use advantageous DECT system components.

  • Patent number: 6081534
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method and equipment with which it is possible to use data services of a cellular telecommunication system, especially the GSM system, from a terminal (26) belonging to a second cellular telecommunication system, especially the DECT system. According to the invention, it is added to the base station (20) of said second telecommunication system the means (22, 23, 24, 27, 28, 30, 32, 34) required for performing the rate adaptations and mappings with which the transferred data are converted from the format of said first telecommunication system to the format of said second telecommunications system and vice versa. All changes to the current systems as required by applying the invention are made in the base station (20) near its interface to the switching center (1), so there will be no changes as regards the user and the operation of the switching centre.
