Abstract
(EN)
Architecture that facilitates the validation and authentication of the physical location of the dual-mode handset in a VoWLAN solution (e.g., UMA (Unlicensed Mobile Access)) system and a cellular wireless service, thereby restricting the handset from gaining access from unauthorized locations. Thus, access to dual-mode service (e.g., UMA), for example, at a particular location (e.g., in a subscriber's home, or in a hot spot that is controlled by carrier) can now be managed to allow or deny service at a certain location. Another aspect of the invention is the capability to perform location-based billing. For example, if the subscriber is at home, the call may be free. Alternatively, if the subscriber is at a remote location (e.g., a retail establishment), it is now possible to charge for that connection at a different fee. Additionally, a location can now be assigned; for example, to assign a location for E911 compliance.

L'invention concerne une architecture qui facilite la validation et l'authentification de l'emplacement physique d'un téléphone bimode dans un système proposant une solution VoWLAN ou un service sans fil cellulaire (par exemple, UMA (accès mobile sans licence)), ce qui permet de limiter l'accès à partir d'emplacements non autorisés pour un téléphone. Ainsi, l'accès à un service bimode (par exemple, UMA), à un emplacement particulier (par exemple, au domicile d'un abonné, ou dans une zone sensible contrôlée par une entreprise de télécommunications) peut désormais être géré pour autoriser ou refuser un service à un emplacement particulier. L'invention concerne, selon un autre aspect, une fonction de facturation basée sur la localisation. Par exemple, si l'abonné se trouve à son domicile, l'appel peut être gratuit. En variante, si l'abonné se trouve à un emplacement distant (par exemple, un point de vente au détail), la connexion peut être facturée à un tarif différent. En outre, un emplacement peut désormais être attribué, par exemple, pour répondre aux besoins associés aux services E911.
