    Abstract: Systems and methods of enabling access for non-emergency voice calls are described. A UE operates in a network supporting voice services via a multitude of RATs. The UE attempts to access the network via a first RAT offering voice services and data services. If the UE does not receive a response from the network within a first time period, the UE re-attempts the access to the network via the first RAT. If the number of access attempts for which the UE does not receive a response is at least a threshold value, the UE refrains during a second time period from further access attempts via the first RAT for the purpose of receiving data services, and continues to attempt access via the first or second RAT for the purpose of receiving voice services.

  • Patent number: 11743705
    Abstract: A method of operating a policy and charging rules function (“PCRF”) node to handle an internet protocol multimedia subsystem (“IMS”) emergency call can include receiving an identity request from a proxy call session control function (“P-CSCF”) of an IMS network. The identity request can include an internet protocol (“IP”) address for a user equipment (“UE”). The method can further include, responsive to receiving the identity request, determining one or more identifiers of the UE based on the IP address. The one or more identifiers are separate from the IP address. The method can further include, responsive to determining the one or more identifiers, transmitting an indication of the one or more identifiers of the UE to the P-CSCF.

  • Patent number: 11736922
    Abstract: A UE in cellular communication system may be equipped with multiple User Services Identity Modules (USIMs) to support multiple service subscriptions. The UE having multiple service subscriptions may obtain services from one or more wireless networks with each of the subscriptions. When the UE having multiple service subscriptions needs to make an emergency call, the UE may identify and determine a service subscription to make the emergency call, so that the emergency call can be successfully made. The UE may be implemented with a communication processor (modem) and an application processor (AP). Some information that is useful to identify a service subscription more suitable for the emergency call may be available only at the communication processor. Enhanced techniques for identifying and determining a service subscription to make the emergency call from the multiple service subscriptions through interaction between the communication processor and the application processor are disclosed.

  • Patent number: 11735029
    Abstract: An emergency communication system, while accurately and reliably detecting a location of an object person, receives contact from the object person and grasps a state of the object person when a matter of emergency has occurred. An object person terminal transmits identification information via short-range wireless communication, acquires location information by a GPS function, and transmits the identification information and the location information to a server. A detection terminal transmits the identification information transmitted from the object person terminal. The server specifies the location of the object person terminal on the basis of the information transmitted from the detection terminal or the identification information and the location information transmitted from the object person terminal.

  • Patent number: 11689920
    Abstract: Systems and methods that provide NAS security protection for mobile networks. In one embodiment, a network element of a mobile network performs a NAS procedure in multiple phases to establish a NAS communication session with User Equipment (UE) when no NAS security context exists. For a first phase, the network element receives an initial NAS message from the UE populated with a subset of NAS protocol Information Elements (IEs) designated for security-related handling, selects a NAS security algorithm for the NAS security context, and sends a response to the UE that indicates the NAS security algorithm. For a second phase, the network element receives a subsequent NAS message from the UE having a NAS message container that contains the initial NAS message populated with each of the NAS protocol IEs for the NAS procedure, and decrypts the NAS message container of the subsequent NAS message using the NAS security algorithm.

  • Patent number: 11682394
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for operating a device when a user does not answer a call is provided herein. During operation a wake word for the device is identified as a user's call sign (a combination of identifying letters, letters and numbers, or words assigned to an officer for use in communication (as in the address of a message sent by radio). The call sign does not comprise a sender or receiver's actual name. When a device detects the wake word as an over-the-air transmission, the device will determine if a user answered the call. If not, sensor data will be provided to the caller and a digital assistant will periodically remind the user of the unanswered call.
