Title
(EN) UPDATING BILLING RATE ACCORDING TO MOBILE MOVINGS IN PREPAID PHONES
(FR) ACTUALISATION DU TAUX DE FACTURATION EN FONCTION DU DEPLACEMENT DES STATIONS MOBILES DE POSTES A PREPAIEMENT
Abstract
(EN)
The invention deals with mobile telecommunication systems allowing prepayment. In such systems mobile stations can have a prepayment account and means for updating said prepayment account according to a billing rate. The invention deals with the case where the billing rate may change when these mobile is moving (in ETACS and AMPS standards notably the billing rate is different in the home area and in the non-home area). According to the invention base stations have means for sending billing rate updating information to mobile station depending on the current location of said mobile station.
(FR)
L'invention concerne des systèmes de télécommunication mobile permettant un prépaiement. Dans ces systèmes, les stations mobiles peuvent avoir un compte de prépaiement et être pourvues d'organes destinés à actualiser ce compte de prépaiement en fonction d'un taux de facturation. Ce taux de facturation varie lorsque lesdites stations mobiles se déplacent (selon les normes des systèmes TACS et AMPS, ce taux de facturation varie en particulier entre la zone locale et le secteur hors zone locale). Selon cette invention, les stations de base sont pourvues d'organes qui transmettent aux stations mobiles des informations concernant l'actualisation du taux de facturation, selon l'emplacement de ces stations.
