Title (EN) TECHNIQUES FOR REMOTELY MANAGING DEVICE CONNECTIVITY IN RESPONSE TO CELLULAR NETWORK OUTAGES
(FR) TECHNIQUES DE GESTION À DISTANCE DE LA CONNECTIVITÉ DE DISPOSITIFS EN RÉPONSE À DES INTERRUPTIONS DE RÉSEAU CELLULAIRE
Abstract:
(EN) Computer-implemented techniques involve detecting, by a server having one or more processors, a first cellular connection between a computing device and a first cellular network of a first cellular carrier associated with a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO), detecting, by the server, an outage of at least the first cellular network of the first cellular carrier, in response to detecting the outage of the first cellular network, determining, by the server, an alternate communication channel by which to communicate with the computing device, and transmitting, by the server, a carrier switch instruction to the computing device via the alternate communication channel, wherein receipt of the carrier switch instruction causes the computing device to: (i) terminate the first cellular connection and (ii) initiate a second cellular connection with another cellular network of different second cellular carrier associated with the MVNO.
(FR) L'invention concerne des techniques mises en œuvre par ordinateur qui consistent à détecter, par un serveur ayant un ou plusieurs processeurs, une première connexion cellulaire entre un dispositif informatique et un premier réseau cellulaire d'une première porteuse cellulaire associée à un opérateur de réseau virtuel mobile (MVNO), détecter, par le serveur, une interruption au moins du premier réseau cellulaire de la première porteuse cellulaire, en réponse à la détection de l'interruption du premier réseau cellulaire, déterminer , par le serveur, un autre canal de communication permettant de communiquer avec le dispositif informatique, et transmettre, par le serveur, une instruction de commutation de porteuse au dispositif informatique par l'intermédiaire du canal de communication alternatif, la réception de l'instruction de commutation de porteuse faisant que le dispositif informatique va:(i) mettre fin à la première connexion cellulaire et (ii) initier une seconde connexion cellulaire avec un autre réseau cellulaire d'une seconde porteuse cellulaire associée à la MVNO.
