Title
(DE) VERFAHREN ZUM AKTIVIEREN EINES PDP-KONTEXTS
(EN) METHOD OF ACTIVATING A PDP CONTEXT
(FR) PROCEDE D'ACTIVATION DE CONTEXTE PDP
Abstract
(EN) The invention relates to a method of activating a PDP context via a mobile terminal (MT), such as a mobile telephone, initiated by a terminal equipment (TE), e.g. a laptop, where the terminal equipment (TE) is arranged to be connected to the mobile terminal (MT). Hitherto, such an activation of a PDP context via a mobile terminal, required the user of a terminal equipment to have quite specialized knowledge, e.g. a special reserved number defined by GPRS, an additional digit (the connection ID) for specifying a special APN to connect to, etc. The invention provides a user-friendly method of performing such an activation, in that the mobile terminal (MT) is arranged to listen for an activation trigger from the terminal equipment (TE) and to perform said activation upon the reception of an activation trigger. The invention moreover relates to a mobile terminal.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé servant à activer un contexte PDP par l'intermédiaire d'un terminal mobile (MT), tel qu'un téléphone mobile déclenché par un équipement terminal (TE), par exemple un ordinateur portable, cet équipement terminal (TE) étant conçu pour être connecté au terminal mobile (MT). Jusqu'à présent l'activation d'un contexte PDP par l'intermédiaire d'un terminal mobile nécessite que l'utilisateur de l'équipement terminal possède une connaissance spécialisée, par exemple, un nombre spécialement réservé défini par GPRS, un chiffre supplémentaire (ID de connexion) servant à indiquer un APN spécial auquel se connecter. L'invention propose une méthode d'exécution de cette activation confortable pour l'utilisateur, le terminal mobile (MT) étant conçu pour écouter une amorce d'activation émanant de l'équipement terminal (TE) et pour exécuter cette activation par réception de l'amorce d'activation. L'invention concerne également un terminal mobile.
