  • Patent number: 10659962
    Abstract: A wireless access point employs a wireless configuration database for retrieving a stored wireless profile corresponding to a subscriber device from a remote location that enables the user to establish an Internet connection using their subscriber device with the same network identifiers and settings employed from the home wireless profile. The network identifier is typically an SSID (Service Set Identification), and labels the wireless configuration using a mnemonic name familiar to the user. The wireless configuration also denotes authentication and security (passphrase) tokens required for access, and would therefore enable the user to sign on at the remote wireless access point using the passphrase already known from their home WiFi arrangement. Subsequent attempts automatically establishing a connection to the subscriber device upon detection and authentication using the retrieved wireless profile without broadcasting an open SSID receivable by other wireless devices within range.

  • Patent number: 10659830
    Abstract: A method, system, mobile device, apparatus and computer program product are provided for accurately determining whether one or more rights objects associated with a mobile device are valid. In particular, a secure time source (e.g., DRM clock or time) may be maintained by the mobile device and used to check the validity of the one or more rights objects. In order to ensure that the secure time source or clock remains accurate, the mobile device may update the secure time source by regularly requesting and receiving the DVB-H network time from a DVB-H network entity. Because the DVB-H network time is secure, accurate and readily accessible, it provides an ideal tool for correcting possible drift in the mobile device's secure time source.

  • Patent number: 10594741
    Abstract: An S-CSCF component within an IMS receives a registration request associated with the UE. The registration request is associated with the UE switching from a first network that provides support for a first feature set to a second network that provides support for the second feature set. Instead of performing registration actions and deregistration actions with an application server in response to the registration request, the S-CSCF compares the feature tags of the registration request with previous feature tags that are associated with currently registered features. The S-CSCF causes a registration action to be performed in response to determining that the current registration request includes a feature tag that is not currently registered. The S-CSCF causes a deregistration action to be performed in response to determining that the current registration request does not include a feature that is currently registered.

  • Patent number: 10517022
    Abstract: Disclosed are a method for enabling a terminal access to a cell, a terminal and a storage medium. The method includes: when performing a Circuit Switched Domain Fallback (CSFB) service, a terminal sends a location update request to a base station of a first cell; when receiving a location update reject message, which is returned by the base station of the first cell in response to the location update request, and determining that a reason for reject is Location Area Not Allowed according to the location update reject message, the terminal puts a Location Area Identification (LAI) of the first cell into a forbidden location areas (LAs) for roaming list; and in response to putting the LAI of the first cell into the forbidden LAs for roaming list, the terminal searches one or more second cells except the first cell and performs an access operation.

  • Patent number: 10503124
    Abstract: Methods, systems, apparatuses, and computer program products are provided for enabling devices to determine the time zone in which they are located. A mobile device may receive location information from one or more sources. Based thereon, the current location of the mobile device may be determined in terms of latitude and longitude. The indication of the current location may be converted to an index value according to a Hilbert curve (or other space-filling curve), and the index value applied to a time zone index file to determine the local time zone. A time zone setting of the mobile device may be updated accordingly. Furthermore, “geofencing” may be used by the mobile device to detect movement towards and through a time zone boundary, leading to a new time zone determination being initiated.

  • Patent number: 10489823
    Abstract: In implementations of a service system to determine journeys based on companion relationship, a server computing device maintains event information about events associated with previous visitors within a designated geographic region, and a devices graph that correlates user identities with devices. A journey determination application can receive an indication that a mobile device has entered the designated geographic region, and correlate the mobile device to an identity of a user. A companion device that is associated with the mobile device can be determined based on companionship information identifying the association of the devices, and the companion device correlates to a companion. The journey determination application determines a journey based on a relationship of the companion to the user of the mobile device and based on the events associated with the previous visitors within the designated geographic region, the journey being designed to elicit a location-based visitor response from the user.

  • Patent number: 10484940
    Abstract: In aspects of network association based on network performance capabilities, a device includes a first subscriber identity module (SIM) to enable a first subscription for data communication between the device and data communication networks, and includes a second SIM to enable a second subscription for additional data communication between the device and the data communication networks. The device implements a network manager to determine network data parameters that indicate performance capabilities of the data communication networks. The network manager can associate a first application of the device with a first network of the data communication networks that has a greater performance capability for a data streaming download based on the network data parameters. The network manager can also associate a second application of the device with a second network of the data communication networks for an interactive session of intermittent data communications based on the network data parameters.

  • Patent number: 10477467
    Abstract: A method and system for handling both voice and non-voice calls in a CSFB scenario is disclosed. An indication is provided to user equipment (UE) to indicate whether the CSFB call is a voice call or a non-voice call (CS data call). The indication can be provided to the UE by a wireless network in a RRC connection release message or a CS service notification message. Further, the UE upon receiving the indication from the network can indicate whether the CSFB call is a voice call or a data call to a target radio access network (RAN) by providing a priority bit indication to all the voice calls for differentiating the voice calls from non-voice calls. The RAN prioritizes all the voice calls ahead of non-voice calls for the UE in the CSFB scenario.
