Title

(FR) COURTIER DE CONNEXIONS MOBILES
Abstract
(EN)
A method and system are disclosed for setting up a communication session between a first peer inside a mobile network, and a second peer outside that mobile network. Contact is established from the second peer to a connection broker responsible for brokering various connections with the first peer, and the second peer requests from the connection broker a connection to the first peer. The connection broker determines whether the first peer is reachable, and finds out what costs, if any, would be borne by the first peer or the second peer or both, in order to pay for a lease of at least the connection requested by the second peer. Then the communication session is set up via the connection, if the first peer is reachable and the costs are acceptable.

Méthode et système d'établissement d'une session de communication entre un premier pair à l'intérieur d'un réseau mobile et un deuxième pair à l'extérieur du réseau mobile. Un contact est établi entre le deuxième pair et un courtier de connexions responsable du courtage de différentes connexions avec le premier pair, et le deuxième pair demande au courtier de connexions une connexion avec le premier pair. Le courtier de connexions détermine si le premier pair est atteignable et vérifie quels frais doivent être portés par le premier pair et/ou par le deuxième pair afin de payer la location d'au moins la connexion demandée par le deuxième pair. La session de communication est alors établie au moyen de la connexion si le premier pair est atteignable et si les frais sont acceptables.
