Abstract
(EN)
A system (306) and method for transparently providing access to a wireless communication service to a group of subscribers (302) who share a set of modems (310), where each subscriber in the group is provided with a subscriber unit (304) and each subscriber in the group is associated with static and dynamic authentication information. According to one embodiment, the system includes a transceiver system (318, 320, 322) for transmitting radio wave frequency signals to and receiving radio wave frequency signals from a base station (120); a set of modems (312), wherein each modem (310) in the set is coupled to the transceiver system; a set of subscriber units (304), wherein each subscriber unit is associated with authentication information; a switch (308) coupled to each of the modems and coupled to each of the subscriber units (304); a control system (314) in communication with the switch (308) and each of the modems; and a database (317) for storing the authentication information, wherein the database is accessible to the control system. The control system (314) determines an available modem from the set of modems when one of the subscriber units is activated. Further, the control system (314) directs the switch (308) to connect the activated subscriber unit (304) with the available modem (310), retrieves from the database (317) authentication information associated with the activated subscriber unit, and provides the available modem (310) with the retrieved authentication information. In this manner, the authentication information associated with the activated subscriber unit (304) is provided to the modem (310) that is handling the call. Consequently, the modem handling the call can transparently authenticate the subscriber unit in the same manner as in a conventional wireless communication service.

L'invention concerne un système (306) et un procédé qui permettent de fournir, de manière transparente, un accès à un service de communication sans fil à un groupe d'abonnés (302) partageant un jeu de modems (310). Une unité d'abonné (304) est attribuée à chaque abonné du groupe et chaque abonné du groupe est associé à une information d'authentification statique et dynamique. Selon une forme de réalisation de l'invention, le système inclut in système émetteur-récepteur (318, 320, 322) servant à transmettre à ou recevoir d'une station de base (120) des signaux radiofréquence, un jeu de modems (312) dont chaque modem (310) est couplé au système émetteur-récepteur, un jeu d'unités d'abonné (304) dont chaque unité est associée à une information d'authentification, un commutateur (308) couplé à chaque modem et à chaque unité d'abonné (304), un système de commande (314) communiquant avec le commutateur (308) et avec chaque modem, et une base de données (317) accessible au système de commande et servant à stocker l'information d'authentification. Le système de commande (314) détermine un modem disponible parmi la série de modem lorsqu'une unité d'abonné est activée. En outre, le système de commande (314) donne au commutateur (308) l'instruction de connecter l'unité d'abonné activée (304) au modem disponible (310), extraie de la base de données (317) l'information d'authentification associée à l'unité d'abonné activée, et transmet au modem disponible (310) l'information d'authentification extraite. Ainsi, l'information d'authentification associée à l'unité d'abonné activée (304) est transmise au modem (310) chargé d'acheminer l'appel. Il en résulte que le modem chargé d'acheminer l'appel peut authentifier de manière transparente l'unité d'abonné, de la même façon que le ferait un service de communication sans fil classique.
