  • Patent number: 11006253
    Abstract: Follow-the-user (FTU) service can be implemented within a telecommunication data services platform to provide flexibility for end users to use their service subscriptions with any capable devices/vehicles. Currently, service subscriptions are generally tied to one device/vehicle that can be used to access the services, instead of the actual end user who uses the services. Therefore, a device/vehicle identifier can be utilized in accordance with an online billing and identification platform to identify end-user subscribers and associate their subscription services to a device/vehicle for which they are utilizing collect service usage, as well as to assign to its owner for the billing.

  • Patent number: 10869178
    Abstract: An emergency location server may receive push location messages from a handset as the handset initiates a call to a public safety answering point (PSAP). The PSAP may request the location information from the location server by identifying the MSISDN of the handset. If the push message does not contain an MSISDN, the location server may send a message, e.g. SRI-SM message, to the home network of the handset to retrieve the MSISDN and associate the MSISDN with the location information in the push location message. This enables the location server to provide location responses to the PSAP even when the handset is unaware of its MSISDN.

  • Patent number: 10856340
    Abstract: Various examples and schemes pertaining to enhanced cell selection mechanisms in mobile communications are described. A user equipment (UE) performs a cell selection or reselection procedure to select a cell of a wireless network and establishes a wireless connection with the selected cell. In performing the cell selection or reselection procedure, the UE determines a frequency band and a subcarrier spacing (SCS) configuration by checking a profile, and the UE performs the cell selection or reselection procedure in the frequency band based on the SCS configuration.

  • Patent number: 10841758
    Abstract: Disclosed is a way to expand the range of Internet of Things devices in a home, office, or structure to the range of a local WiFi network. This is accomplished by generating a network bridge for the devices using machine-to-machine protocols to communicate using the WiFi network backhaul channel. Transmissions in machine-to-machine protocol are tunneled through WiFi communications and extracted by the closest access point. Access points include radios for both WiFi and machine-to-machine protocols.

  • Patent number: 10805978
    Abstract: A system, device and methodology for releasing a connection between user equipment (UE) and a node in a communications network is disclosed. The method includes, at the UE, responsive to an application layer indication that no further data is expected by the UE, receiving a RRC connection release message from the node and transmitting, from the UE, a radio link control (RLC) status message using RLC acknowledged mode (AM) to the node. An early connection release timer at the UE and node based on RLC AM parameters for a signal radio bearer (SRB) is started and upon expiry of the early connection release timer, the node releases the RRC connection. This obviates the need to wait a full 10 s per the 3GPP standard to release the connection during periods of poor radio connectivity, and reduces power consumption at the UE.

  • Patent number: 10785748
    Abstract: A technique of selecting a location area for paging of a mobile device in the wireless communication network is described herein. The technique includes registering the mobile device with a first cell within the wireless communication network, where the cell is included within a primary location area and one or more secondary location areas. The technique also includes determining a default location area index for the mobile device, where the default location area index identifies a default location area for the mobile device. The technique further includes receiving an indication from the mobile device to change from the default location area index to a secondary location area index. The secondary location area index identifies a secondary location that at least includes a sub-portion of the primary location area.

  • Patent number: 10785622
    Abstract: Node identifiers can be assigned to packet core policy nodes and directly routed to a diameter routing agent (DRA) and application functions (AFs) within a call processing message that is employed to establish an application service. Such a policy node identity will be received by Application Functions, UEs and/or intermediate message routers during the initial establishment of a packet data session so that they can refer to the policy node entity directly in the sub-sequent call processing flows related the established session, instead of querying a relational database which can be complex to maintain with multi-million correlation records. As an example, the policy node identifiers can be configurable and can comprise a hostname of the policy nodes, address data associated with the policy nodes, or a defined numerical value that maps to the hostname of the policy nodes.
