Title
(EN) METHOD AND COMMUNICATION DEVICE FOR USING A FIRST SERVICE BASED ON AN ACCOUNT CHARGEABLE WITH THE USE OF A SECOND SERVICE
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET DISPOSITIF DE COMMUNICATION POUR UTILISER UN PREMIER SERVICE SUR LA BASE D'UN COMPTE FACTURABLE À L'AIDE D'UN SECOND SERVICE
Abstract
(EN)
A method for provisioning services to a subscriber comprises: receiving an indication of use of a first service by the subscriber; and upon receipt of the indication, checking if an account of the subscriber comprises a sufficient number of credits for allowing the subscriber to use the first service; if the number of credits is not sufficient, pushing a second service to the subscriber according to a predetermined contract between the subscriber and a network operator so as to increment the number of credits in the account for allowing the first service to proceed. A network node, for carrying out this method, comprises a processor for receiving the indication of use of the first service and a service function to check the number of credits in the account and to push the second service if the number of credits is not sufficient in the account.
(FR)
L'invention porte sur procédé de fourniture de services à un abonné qui comprend : la réception d'une indication d'utilisation d'un premier service par l'abonné ; et lors de la réception de l'indication, la vérification du fait qu'un compte de l'abonné comprend un nombre de crédits suffisant pour autoriser l'abonné à utiliser le premier service ; si le nombre de crédits n'est pas suffisant, le pousser d'un second service vers l'abonné conformément à un contrat prédéterminé entre l'abonné et un opérateur de réseau de façon à incrémenter le nombre de crédits sur le compte pour autoriser le premier service à continuer. Un nœud de réseau destiné à mettre en œuvre ce procédé comprend un processeur pour recevoir l'indication d'utilisation du premier service et une fonction de service pour vérifier le nombre de crédits sur le compte et pour pousser le second service si le nombre de crédits n'est pas suffisant sur le compte.
