Title: (EN) Cellular telecommunications networks for temporarily associating unique connection numbers with terminals having token identification modules
Abstract: front page image
(EN)

A cellular telecommunications network that facilitates communication connections for terminals having identification modules that are not associated with a subscriber record or Mobile Subscriber Integrated Services Digital Network (MSISDN). The cellular telecommunications network implements 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 Machine-to-Machine (M2M) client terminals with embedded token identification modules.
