|20140148210||METHOD AND FRAMEWORK TO DETECT SERVICE USERS IN AN INSUFFICIENT WIRELESS RADIO COVERAGE NETWORK AND TO IMPROVE A SERVICE DELIVERY EXPERIENCE BY GUARANTEED PRESENCE - A system and method for providing advanced voice services in a wireless communications network. The system includes at least one server that exchanges messages with mobile units, in order to indicate that a user is neither online or offline, but is temporarily unreachable or unavailable. The user may be temporarily unreachable or unavailable due to connectivity issues with the user's mobile unit in the wireless communications network. Presence information for the user is distributed from the server to watchers, wherein the presence information indicates that the user is offline when the user is temporarily unreachable or unavailable. Various techniques may be implemented to determine how long the user's mobile unit must remain connected to the wireless communications network, before the presence information indicates that the user is online.||05-29-2014|
|20130196706||WiFi INTERWORKING SOLUTIONS FOR PUSH-TO-TALK-OVER-CELLULAR (PoC) - WiFi interworking solutions for Push-To-Talk over Cellular (PoC) in the Open Mobile Alliance (OMA) Standard.||08-01-2013|
|20130155875||PUSH-TO-TALK-OVER-CELLULAR (POC) - A Push-to-Talk-over Cellular (PoC) implementation for use in a wireless communications network, wherein one or more servers interface to the wireless communications network to perform the PoC call sessions. Both the servers and the mobile units that use the PoC call sessions communicate with each other using SIP/IP (Session Initiation Protocol/Internet Protocol) control messages within the wireless communications network, and one or more of the servers switches RTP/IP (Realtime Transport Protocol/Internet Protocol), RTCP/IP (Realtime Transport Control Protocol/Internet Protocol), or MBCP/IP (Media Burst Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) voice packets for the PoC call sessions between the mobile units across the wireless communications network.||06-20-2013|
|20110294494||PREDICTIVE WAKEUP FOR PUSH-TO-TALK-OVER-CELLULAR (POC) CALL SETUP OPTIMIZATIONS - A predictive wakeup function for Push-to-Talk-over Cellular (PoC) call setup optimizations in a cellular mobile phone network. In performing the predictive wakeup for call setup optimizations, an originating mobile transmits an event trigger to a real-time exchange that interfaces to a mobile switching center in the cellular mobile phone network. The real-time exchange transmits a wakeup message to one or more terminating mobiles of predicted participants, in order to transition the terminating mobiles of the predicted participants from a dormant state to an active state prior to a call being setup with the terminating mobiles of the predicted participants. The terminating mobiles of the predicted participants are identified by a predictive wakeup mechanism before the originating mobile sends a list of one or more terminating mobiles of actual participants to the real-time exchange. The predicted participants may be determined based on static or dynamic information, including heuristics involving calling patterns.||12-01-2011|
|20110217949||PREPAID BILLING SOLUTIONS FOR PUSH-TO-TALK IN A WIRELESS COMMUNICATIONS NETWORK - Advanced group services for use in a mobile phone network include a prepaid billing solution. In the mobile phone network, a real-time exchange interfaces to at least one mobile switching center to provide the advanced group services therein. Both the real-time exchange and the mobile phones that use the advanced group services communicate with each other using call setup and in-band signaling within the mobile phone network, wherein the real-time exchange switches the voice frames for the advanced group services between the mobile phones across bearer paths and through at least one mobile switching center in the mobile phone network. A real-time billing mechanism is provided for a prepaid subscriber of the advanced group services. The real-time billing mechanism may use a prefix-based billing solution or a charging number based billing solution.||09-08-2011|
|20110183659||COMMUNITY GROUP CLIENT AND COMMUNITY AUTO DISCOVERY SOLUTIONS IN A WIRELESS COMMUNICATIONS NETWORK - A Community Group Client and Community Auto-Discovery for use in a wireless communications network. The Community Group Client and Community Auto-Discovery are used with Community Group features for Advanced Voice Services or Advanced Group Services in wireless communications systems.||07-28-2011|
|20110065481||ADVANCED FEATURES ON A REAL-TIME EXCHANGE SYSTEM - A real-time exchange (RTX) interfaces to a wireless communications system to provide enhanced features for advanced voice services (AVS), which include Voice Activated Floor Management, Voice Short Message Services (SMS) and Address Book Backup.||03-17-2011|
|20100304724||ENHANCED GROUP CALLING FEATURES FOR CONNECTED PORTFOLIO SERVICES IN A WIRELESS COMMUNICATIONS NETWORK - Enhanced Group Calling Features for Connected Portfolio Services in wireless communications networks, such as a mobile or cellular phone communications networks. The Connected Portfolio Services include Mobile Conferencing (Scheduled/Instant/Reservationless Conference), Family Connect, Buddy Connect, and Quick Reach, while the Enhanced Group Calling Features include Voicemail Diversion (the recognition of a diversion to voicemail and dropping the leg), Reverse Quick Reach (where a terminating subscriber defines how a call dialed to his/her mobile number should be handled and directed), and Single Number Group Calling (an optimal design implementation of single number based group calling).||12-02-2010|
|20100234018||CONVERGED MOBILE-WEB COMMUNICATIONS SOLUTION - A converged mobile-Web communications solution interfaces to both a mobile phone network and an Internet or Intranet network, so that services that are provided to mobile phones in the mobile phone network are also provided to web clients or web widgets in the Internet or Intranet network.||09-16-2010|
|20100142414||HYBRID PUSH-TO-TALK FOR MOBILE PHONE NETWORKS - A Hybrid Push-to-Talk (PTT) function for use in wireless communications networks, such as cellular mobile telephone networks. The cellular mobile telephone network includes at least one Real-Time Exchange (RTX) that interfaces to at least one Mobile Switching Center (MSC) in the cellular mobile telephone network to provide advanced voice services therein, wherein the advanced voice services provide instant two-way half-duplex voice messaging within a group of users of the cellular mobile telephone network, which is known as the Hybrid PTT function. In the Hybrid PTT function, a first talkburst or volley is transmitted by the RTX from an originating mobile to one or more terminating mobiles on one or more pre-established Internet Protocol (IP) sessions between the RTX and the mobiles. In addition, one or more circuit channels are established by the RTX with the mobiles through the MSC in parallel with the first talkburst or volley. Thereafter, second and subsequent talkbursts or volleys are transmitted by the RTX from the originating mobile to the terminating mobiles on the circuit channels.||06-10-2010|
|20090209235||CONVERGED MOBILE-WEB COMMUNICATIONS SOLUTION - A converged mobile-Web communications solution interfaces to both a mobile phone network and an Internet or Intranet network, so that services that are provided to mobile phones in the mobile phone network are also provided to Web clients in the Internet or Intranet network.||08-20-2009|
|20090149167||CONNECTED PORTFOLIO SERVICES FOR A WIRELESS COMMUNICATIONS NETWORK - Connected Portfolio Services for use in a mobile phone network include new mobile phone services: Scheduled Conference with Dial-Out and Dial-In modes of operation; Reservationless Conference; Instant Conferencing; Group Short Message Service with Reply All; Voice Short Message Service with Reply All; Family Connect; Buddy Connect; Quick Reach; and Email2Conference.
