  • Patent number: 9203970
    Abstract: Combinational networks may provide simultaneous connectivity over networks of different type between User Equipment of an A-party and B-party. A communication session, comprising a circuit switched call and one or more packet switched sessions, may be deployed simultaneously over different network types, in relation to the same User Equipment. The circuit switched call and the packet switched session may be correlated. As to retrieve the packet switched address of a circuit switched call partner, a retrieval for a packet switched network address is initialized by means of a circuit switched protocol over a circuit switched network. The address retrieval request is directed to the call partner or a network node that accomplishes the network address request.

  • Publication number: 20140160992
    Abstract: A method and arrangement for providing a ring-back presentation to a calling terminal after receiving a call setup request from the calling terminal for a first communication session with a called terminal. A second packet-based communication session is established with the calling terminal, independent of the first session, and pre-defined media content is provided as said ring-back presentation to the calling terminal over the second session. Thereby, ring-back presentations to waiting callers can be selected from a great range of media types, including visual media. A calling user can also control the playout or display of the ring-back presentation irrespective of when the call is answered.

  • Publication number: 20070149222
    Abstract: Methods, server, and terminal are provided for allowing an initiating party to “finger-point” another party targeted for communication using an electronic terminal and as a consequence of such “finger-pointing”, to retrieve at least an indication of the identity of a mobile terminal of the targeted party to establish a communication therewith. In a first embodiment, the “finger-pointing” comprises pointing a camera-enabled terminal and acquiring a picture of the targeted party, which is translated by the server using picture analysis techniques into a terminal address. In another embodiment, the “finger-pointing” comprises targeting the party with a directive antenna emission to obtain a radio identifier of the targeted party, which is translated by the server into an identity of the targeted party to establish a communication therewith.

  • Publication number: 20050009908
    Abstract: A process for the preparation of a stable dispersion of solid particles, in an aqueous medium comprising combining (a) a first solution comprising a substantially water-insoluble substance, a water-miscible organic solvent and an inhibitor with (b) an aqueous phase comprising water and optionally a stabiliser, thereby precipitating solid particles comprising the inhibitor and the substantially water-insoluble substance; and optionally removing the water-miscible organic solvent; wherein the inhibitor is a non-polymeric hydrophobic organic compound as defined in the description. The process provides a dispersion of solid particles in an aqueous medium, which particles exhibit reduced or substantially no particle growth mediated by Ostwald ripening.

  • Patent number: 6508115
    Abstract: A transfer roll 1 for conveying a strip of substantially flat material from one device to another. The strip passes over the transfer roll as the transfer roll rotates. The transfer roll includes a flat and smooth cylindrical outer skin which comprises at least two cylindrical elements. Between the cylindrical elements is arranged a mean 7 for reducing the mechanical stiffness of the cylindrical skin relative to the stiffness of the remainder of the cylindrical skin 2. Suitable means such as a welded joint 9 of reduced cross sectional thickness compared to the remainder of the cylinder are described. Such means separate the cylinder mechanically into a plurality of measurement areas with a predetermined degree of crosstalk. The transfer roll may be used to measure force or tension in strip material more accurately than with previous devices.
