|20100293183||CONVERGED PERSONAL AREA NETWORK SERVICE METHOD AND SYSTEM - A converged personal area network service system uses information provided by personal network elements (PNEs) to generate an event report file to store along with a data file to commemorate an event. When the data file is created, such as taking a picture, an event recording device sends requests to PNEs, sensors and other devices within the network to provide information corresponding to a timestamp based on the event. The information, if available, is sent to the event recording device, where it is aggregated. The event recording device generates an event report file that includes fields storing the information pertaining to the data file. The event report file is stored along with the data file for retrieval or use at a later time.||11-18-2010|
|20090232094||METHOD AND FUNCTION FOR MAINTAINING MAPPING BETWEEN MEDIA INDEPENDENT HANDOVER FUNCTIONS AND TRANSPORT ADDRESSES - A media-independent handover (MIH) environment supports a MIH function that uses a mapping table to communicate with other MIH functions using a MIH transport protocol. The MIH function updates the mapping table upon receipt of a message having fields to invoke an operation. The operation can update an existing mapping or delete a mapping. The operation also can update a lifetime value for a mapping for a particular address. The mapping table includes mappings. A mapping includes a MIH function identifier, a list of transport addresses, and a lifetime value.||09-17-2009|
|20090216725||Populating and Managing (PAM) Contact Information In The Network Address Book (NAB) - This paper proposes a new method and architecture for populating, updating and managing the NAB. It also proposes user's Contact Information Discovery (CID). In context of populating the NAB; since the NAB of each individual subscriber will be stored in the network in future, the paper proposes CI to flow from one NAB to another NAB within the core network, instead of CI flowing from Device to Network. Thus with the user authorization, his CI would shoot from one NAB to another NAB within the core network instead of from LAB to NAB through air interface. It would reduce huge amount of data traffic on the air that otherwise would be generated in updating and populating the NAB by all the NAB users. In context of CID, the paper proposes a query-response mechanism and introduces a NAB Manager. The new architecture will provide several benefits for example it will eliminate the need of “Number Portability,” “United States National Do Not Call Registry” and “411 Directory Assistance.”||08-27-2009|
|20090047959||DATA TYPE ENCODING FOR MEDIA INDEPENDENT HANDOVER - A method of employing an encoding scheme for media independent handover, comprising: having at least some data type carry only required information to determine the end of data without a length value||02-19-2009|
|20080311855||INTELLIGENT CONNECTIVITY FRAMEWORK FOR THE SIMULTANEOUS USE OF MULTIPLE INTERFACES - A system and method comprising a framework configured to enable wireless devices to intelligently and simultaneously use multiple wireless interfaces of the wireless devices.||12-18-2008|
