Title
(EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR MANAGING USE AND ACCESS OF A COMMUNICATION NETWORK
(FR) SYSTEME ET PROCEDE PERMETTANT DE GERER L'UTILISATION D'UN RESEAU DE COMMUNICATION ET L'ACCES A UN RESEAU DE COMMUNICATION
Abstract
(EN)
The present invention provides a system and method for managing access and use of a communication network or service or service. When a user requests the use of a communication network or service and this network is experiencing a level of use which is above a predetermined threshold, one or more incentives can be offered to the user in return for deferring access to the communication network or service for a predetermined period of time. In this manner, usage of the communication network or service can be managed such that variability of the usage level over time can be reduced.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un système et un procédé pour gérer l'accès à un réseau ou à un service de communication et l'utilisation d'un réseau ou d'un service de communication. Lorsqu'un utilisateur demande à utiliser un réseau ou un service de communication et que le niveau d'utilisation de ce réseau de communication dépasse un seuil prédéterminé, une ou plusieurs gratifications peuvent être offertes à l'utilisateur en retour s'il diffère son accès au réseau ou au service de communication pendant une durée prédéfinie. Ainsi, il est possible de gérer l'utilisation d'un réseau ou d'un service de communication de sorte que la variabilité du niveau d'utilisation puisse être réduite au cours du temps.
