20090005040Method and computer system for matching mobile device users for business and social networking - A business or social networking method is operative in a server. The method enables mobile device users to meet one another, on a permission basis. The determination of whether a given pair of mobile device users are introduced depends on whether the server determines they are in intellectual or “cognitive” proximity, which is typically a function of one or more factors, such as: each user's reciprocal networking objective, the nature of the industry in which the user works, the user's level within the management hierarchy of his or her company, any specialty function the individual may possess, and so on. Individuals who are matched in one or more of such attributes to a given degree or threshold are said to be in intellectual proximity. According to the invention, when given mobile devices users are within physical proximity of one another during an overlapping time window, the server determines whether the users are also within a given intellectual proximity. If so, and if both users have opted to receive new introductions, the server issues a mutual collaboration opportunity message to each of the mobile device users to determine whether they desire to be introduced to one another. Preferably, the mutual collaboration opportunity message masks personally identifying information. If the mobile device users agree to be introduced, the server establishes a direct private messaging session between them.

In order to obtain the identity number, the eNodeB may receive a first message from the user equipment and extract a first part of an identity number of the user equipment from the received first message. The eNodeB may receive a second message from the MME and extract a second part of the identity number of the user equipment from the second message. The eNodeB may form the identity number of user equipment by combining the extracted first part of the identity number with the extracted second part of the identity number.03-15-2012
20120077496REGISTRATION WITH A MOBILE TELECOMMUNICATIONS SERVICE PROVIDER - A method performed by a mobile device to register for cellular data connection service provided by a mobile telecommunications service provider. In one embodiment, the mobile device transmits a probe, through a wireless cellular network, to a main Access Point Name (APN), and the probe is configured to determine whether the mobile device has a valid cellular data connection subscription. The mobile device determines, from a response to the probe, that it does not have a valid cellular data connection subscription with the mobile telecommunications service provider. Responsive to that determination, the mobile device connects to a cellular data connection service registration site to allow a user of the mobile device to register for data connection service provided by the mobile telecommunications service provider. The mobile device is limited to accessing the data connection service registration site until the user registers for data connection service.03-29-2012
20120094667MOBILE COMMUNICATION METHOD, MOBILE STATION, AND SWITCHING CENTER - A mobile communication method according to the present invention comprising, a step in which a mobile station transmits a first location registration request signal including capability information indicating that it is compatible with a second radio access network, to a mobile switching center housing a first radio access network, a step in which the mobile switching center transmits a location registration rejection signal, which includes information indicating that communication using a second radio access network is not allowed, to the mobile station, a step in which the mobile station transmits a second location registration request signal, which includes capability information indicating that it is not compatible with the second radio access network, to the mobile switching center in response to the location registration rejection signal and a step in which the mobile switching center performs a location registration process with respect to the first radio access network of the mobile station in response to the second location registration request signal.04-19-2012
20120094666UNIQUELY IDENTIFYING TARGET FEMTOCELL TO FACILITATE FEMTO-ASSISTED ACTIVE HAND-IN - Systems, methods, and devices are described for supporting macrocell-to-femtocell hand-ins of active macro communications for mobile devices. An out-of-band (OOB) link is used to detect that a mobile device is in proximity of a femtocell. Having detected the mobile device in proximity to the femtocell, an OOB proximity detection is communicated to a femtocell gateway disposed in a core network in communication with the macro network to effectively pre-register the mobile device with the femto-convergence system. When the femtocell gateway receives a handover request from the macro network implicating the pre-registered mobile device, it is able to reliably determine the appropriate target femtocell to use for the hand-in according to the pre-registration, even where identification of the appropriate target femtocell would otherwise be unreliable. Some embodiments may also handling registering the mobile device after a handover request has occurred, including tiered approaches.04-19-2012
20120094665FEMTOCELL INDICATION OF MOBILE DEVICE PROXIMITY AND TRANSMISSION OF MOBILE IDENTITY TO ASSIST IN RESOLVING FEMTOCELL DISAMBIGUATION - Methods, systems, and devices are described that may provide for femtocells to indicate the proximity of mobile user equipments and/or provide mobile identity to assist in resolving femtocell disambiguation. A femtocell may detect a user equipment in its proximity using an out-of-band link. The femtocell may transmit a proximity indication message to a macro network controller via a core network. The macro network may direct the user equipment to perform a variety of tasks, including directing the user equipment to do a handover to the femtocell. Some embodiments may utilize existing user equipment registrations and femto-to-macrocell outbound handover procedures to address problems such as femtocell ambiguity resolution and triggering frequency searches at a macro network when a current macrocell signal strength is good. These embodiments may utilize dummy identifiers to register the user equipment to facilitate addressing these problems.04-19-2012

20130210432COMMUNICATION SYSTEM, OPERATION CONTROL METHOD, AND LOCATION MANAGEMENT SERVER - A communication system according to an exemplary aspect of the present invention is a communication system including a location management server for managing the location of a mobile station, a base station for deciding an exchange which accommodates the mobile station via the base station in response to a location registration request from the mobile station and making the location registration request to the exchange decided, and an exchange for making the location registration request to the location management server in response to the location registration request from the base station, wherein the location management server designates an exchange for accommodating the mobile station in response to the location registration request.08-15-2013
20130210433METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR TRANSMITTING/RECEIVING SYSTEM INFORMATION IN BROADBAND WIRELESS COMMUNICATION SYSTEM - A method and an apparatus for transmitting and receiving System Information (SI) of a femto base station in a wireless communication system are provided. In the method, an SI transmission point is determined using unique identification information of a femto base station itself and unique identification information of a macro base station with which the femto base station is associated. Each of user equipment and the macro base station generate a measurement gap pattern representing an SI reception point using the unique identification information of the femto base station and the unique identification information of the macro base station. SI is received from the femto base station according to the generated measurement gap pattern.08-15-2013
