20130188539BLOCKING COMMUNICATION BETWEEN ROGUE DEVICES - Techniques which prevent rogue devices from continued access to a wireless communication system. A control element directs access points as to which mobile stations to service. Each access point maintains a record of the mobile stations it is servicing. At the direction of the control element, one or more access points send ACK (acknowledgement) messages when hearing messages from a rogue device. When the rogue device sends a message, it expects an ACK message in response, but those additional ACK messages interfere with the responsive ACK message, causing the rogue device to never hear the responsive ACK message. The rogue device assumes its message was not received, so it retries sending of that message. When the rogue device retries sending of its message, the responsive ACK message is similarly interfered with, until the rogue device concludes that its connection has been lost.07-25-2013

20120008534Method and System for Tailoring Wireless Device Service Provisioning Based on Device Capability Information Communicated to Network - Before a wireless-equipped device is distributed to an end-user, the manufacturer or distributor of the wireless-equipped device will record in the device a set of data that describes characteristics (e.g., type, features, capabilities, and limitations) of the device. When the end-user powers on the device or otherwise brings the device within the coverage of a service provider's wireless base station, the device will then acquire radio connectivity, typically with the service provider authenticating the device's wireless chipset. Thereafter, the device will engage in a first-time activation/service-provisioning session with a system operated by the service provider, and during that session, the device will provide the system with its device-characteristics data and the service provider will use that device-characteristics data as a basis to customize provisioning of service for the device based on one or more of the device's features or capabilities.01-12-2012
