Abstract
(EN)
In a cellular telecommunications network that facilitates communication connections for terminals having identification modules that are not associated with a subscriber record or MSISDN number, the invention provides a method for temporarily associating unique connection numbers with those terminals, the method comprising at least: providing a pool of unique connection numbers; in response to a request for communication with a device incorporating a token identification module, assigning a selected one of the pooled numbers to the token identification module in a location register; and initiating a reconnection event, thereby providing the assigned number to the device by associating the device with a temporary unique connection number in the location register Embodiments described are directed to M2M client terminals with embedded token identification modules.
