Title
(EN) METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR CHECKING THE ATTAINABILITY STATUS OF A MOBILE TERMINAL DEVICE
(FR) PROCEDE ET SYSTEME DE VERIFICATION DE L'ETAT D'ACCESSIBILITE D'UN DISPOSITIF TERMINAL MOBILE
Abstract
(EN)
The method for executing a communication attempt with a mobile terminal device in accordance with the attainability status of a mobile terminal device in a cellular communication network having a Short Message Service Centre by the steps of: querying a SMSC in a cellular network for obtaining an attainability status of said mobile terminal device and delivering said communication attempt to said mobile terminal device in accordance with said attainability status. This invention allows an application to find out if a mobile terminal device e.g. a handset is reachable without actually contacting the handset. A short message service centre does this by initiating a mobile terminated delivery attempt but not finishing it but telling the application instead if the home location register of a cellular network thinks the handset is reachable or not.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un procédé d'exécution d'une tentative de communication avec un terminal mobile en fonction de l'état d'accessibilité d'un terminal mobile dans un réseau de communication cellulaire comprenant un centre de service de messages courts, ledit procédé comprenant les étapes suivantes: la consultation d'un SMSC d'un réseau cellulaire en vue d'obtenir un état d'accessibilité dudit terminal mobile et la distribution de ladite tentative de communication au dispositif mobile en fonction de l'état d'accessibilité. Cette invention permet à une application de déterminer si un terminal mobile, par exemple, un combiné peut être atteint sans contacter réellement ledit combiné. Un centre de service de messages courts effectue ceci en lançant une tentative de distribution jusqu'au mobile, mais sans la terminer et en informant l'application plutôt que l'enregistreur de location nominal si l'enregistreur de location nominal d'un réseau cellulaire pense que le combiné peut être atteint ou non.
