交的临时申请的优先权,该临时申请同为本申请的申请人所有,并通过引用完整地包括进来。 Post provisional application filed, provisional application with the present application owned by the applicant, and included by reference in their entirety.

技术领域 FIELD

一般地,本发明涉及无线通信系统,更具体地,涉及在这样的系统中启用无线的基于出席状态的服务。 Generally, the present invention relates to wireless communication systems, and more particularly, to a wireless-enabled in such systems based on the presence status service.

背景技术 Background technique

出席状态服务(presence services),例如即时消息(IM),对于互联网用户而言是众所周知的。 Attended the service status (presence services), such as instant messaging (IM), for Internet users is well known. 这些服务也是第三代(3G)无线提议的一部分。 These services are part of (3G) wireless proposal is the third generation. 然而,目前的无线形式(paradigm)不能高效率地处理这些服务。 However, the current wireless form (paradigm) can not efficiently handle these services. 例如,现有出席状态服务器典型地通过周期性地ping目标移动站(MS),并使用响应或响应的缺失作为出席状态"心跳"信号, 来维护出席状态信息。 For example, an existing presence status server typically by periodically ping target mobile station (MS), and used as the response or lack of response to the presence status "heartbeat" signal to maintain the presence status information. 图1阐释ping这样一个MS时包括的简化的消息交换。 Figure 1 illustrates a simplified ping message comprises a switching time of such a MS. 如消息流程图100中所见到的那样,出席状态服务器ping触发,经由分组数据服务节点(PDSN),基站(BS)、移动交换中心(MSC)、 MS、分组控制功能(PCF)与PDSN之间的实质消息,以最终将ping 响应递送到出席状态服务器(经由PSDN)。 The message flow diagram 100. As seen, the presence status ping trigger server via the Packet Data Serving Node (PDSN), a base station (the BS), a mobile switching center (MSC), MS, packet control function (PCF) and the PDSN between the essence of the message to be delivered to the ping response will eventually attend the state of the server (via PSDN). 如可见到的那样,该寻呼大量地牵涉到MSC与A接口。 As can be seen, the paging involves a large amount of the A interface to the MSC. 它还在到MS的无线接口上使用长的(即无效率的)寻呼。 It also uses long (i.e. inefficient) to the MS on a paging radio interface. 网络与MS经历跳出睡眠的完整的数据会话激活(即,包括TCH分配的呼叫建立),分组交换,以及连接的拆除。 MS and network experience sleep out complete data session activation (i.e., including the establishment of a call assigned TCH), packet switched, connection and removal.

5进一步地,每一单独的服务可追踪出席状态,而独立于其它服务。 5 Furthermore, each individual traceable presence status service, independently of the other services.

例如,不同的IM服务可分别进行其自己对目标MS的ping,以获取基本上相同的信息。 For example, different IM service can be performed separately on its own ping the target MS, in order to obtain substantially the same information. 鉴于目前的出席状态实现中包括的无效率,存在对这样的无线通信网络与方法的需要,其更有效率地启用无线的基于出席状态的服务。 Given the current inefficiency of state attended, including implementation, there is a need for a wireless communication network and method, which is more efficient wireless-enabled service-based presence status.

WPP 415可使用众所周知的组件实现,例如处理器,存储器,和/或被设计为实现算法的逻辑电路,该算法作为电脑指令和/或在电路中表述。 WPP 415 may be implemented using well known components, such as a processor, memory, and / or logic circuitry designed to implement algorithms, the algorithm as computer instructions and / or expressed in the circuit. 给定算法或逻辑流程,本领域技术人员知晓可用于实现执行给定逻辑的WPP的许多设计与开发技术。 Given algorithm or a logic flow, those skilled in the art may be used to achieve its many design and development techniques WPP performing the given logic. 例如,与本发明一致的WPP 可实现为单机系统组件(例如,控制功能)、集成到众所周知的系统组件(例如MSC中的控制功能,或者如PCF 214中的WPP 215所描绘的),或者分布于众所周知的系统组件之间(如分布于MSC 313与PCF 314之间的WPP315所描绘的)。 For example, consistent with WPP present invention may be implemented as a single system component (e.g., control functions) integrated into a well-known system components (e.g., control functions in the MSC, or as PCF 214 in WPP 215 as depicted), or distributed between the well-known system components (e.g. WPP315 distributed between MSC 313 and PCF 314 depicted).

遵照本发明的第一实施例描绘无线通信网络210。 In accordance with a first embodiment of the present invention a wireless communication network 210 is depicted. 网络210包括众所周知的系统组件MSC/VLR 213与PDSN 216。 Network 210 comprises a well-known system components MSC / VLR 213 and the PDSN 216. 另外,网络210包括PCF214, WPP215集成于其中,还包括BS212,其包括WTE(例如WTE 211)、 BTS、基站控制器(BSC),还包括选择与分发单元(SDU)。 Further, network 210 comprises PCF214, WPP215 integrated therein, further comprising a BS 212, which includes the WTE (e.g. WTE 211), BTS, a base station controller (the BSC), and further comprising a selection distribution unit (SDU).

遵照本发明的第一实施例的通信系统200的操作基本上如下发生。 Operating a communication system in accordance with a first embodiment of the present invention 200 occurs substantially as follows. WPP 215监测MS 201的消息与消息响应,如经由WTE 211所接收的那样。 WPP 215 monitors the MS 201 a message response message, as received via the WTE 211. 消息响应包括诸如寻呼响应、短数据脉冲(SDB)确认、 状态响应消息、短消息服务(SMS)确认、与层2确认等信令。 Such as a paging response message comprising a response to short data burst (SDB) confirmation status response message, a short message service (SMS) to confirm, with confirmation layer 2 signaling. 消息包括MS指示,即其正在开机或关机(power up or down),注册或注销,进入或退出不可获得(unavailable)模式,切换到无线通信网络210 之外或之内,或者参与或完成其它通信。 MS message includes an indication that it is on or off (power up or down), or cancellation of registration, not available to enter or exit (unavailable Sign of) mode, switching to the wireless communication network 210 or within the outside, or participate in, or perform other communications . 这些信令今天用在不提供出席状态服务的系统中。 These signaling systems used today to attend the state does not provide service. 这样,这些消息响应不要求MS 201中有专门的软件,它们也不显式地指定MS201的出席状态或MS201的出席状态改变。 Thus, the MS 201 a message response is not required to have a special software, they do not explicitly specify the presence status of presence status or MS201 MS201 change. 因此,基于其监测,WPP 215推断MS 201的出席状态和/或状态改变。 Thus, based on its monitoring, WPP 215 MS 201 to infer the presence status and / or state changes. WPP 215其后将MS 201的该出席状态和/或状态改变传输给出席状态服务器255。 WPP 215 after which the MS 201 the presence status and / or change of state is transmitted to the server 255 the presence status. 该通信经由PDSN 215发生,并使用互联网消息与会话发起协议(SIP)。 This communication occurs via PDSN 215, and Internet message with a Session Initiation Protocol (SIP).

为推断MS 201的出席状态/改变,WPP 215监测MS 201的消息与消息响应。 Inferring the presence status for the MS 201 / change, WPP 215 monitors the MS 201 a response message with the message. 例如,如果MS 201的出席状态指示其"存在",当WPP215 检测到指示MS 201正在关机、注销、进入不可获得模式、切换到无线通信网络210之外、或者参与其它通信的消息时,WPP215可推断MS 201的出席状态己变为"不存在"状态。 For example, if the MS 201 of its presence status indicates "present", indicating when the MS 201 detects WPP215 is shutting down, log into the unavailable mode, switch to a wireless communication network beyond 210, or other communications participation message, may WPP215 MS 201 inferred presence status has changed to "absent" state. 类似地,如果MS 201的出席状态指示其"不存在",当WPP215检测到指示MS201正在开机、 注册、退出不可获得模式、切换到无线通信网络之内、或者完成其它通信的消息时,WPP 215可推断MS 201的出席状态已变为"存在" 状态。 Similarly, if MS 201 presence status indicates that it "does not exist", when WPP215 detected indicating MS201 is turned on, registration, exit the unavailable mode, switching into a wireless communication network, or the complete message other communications, WPP 215 MS 201 inferred presence status has changed to "present" state.

在第一实施例中,WPP 215偶尔以要求MS响应的消息向MS发信号。 In a first embodiment, WPP 215 occasionally requires MS response message to signal to the MS. 该信令可以由诸如周期性定时器期满、设置为随机选择的间隔的定时器期满、或者从出席状态服务器225接收请求(例如,ping请求)等事件触发。 This signaling may be formed as a periodic timer expires, the timer is set to a randomly selected interval expires, or a state from the presence server 225 receives the request (e.g., of ping request) event trigger and the like. 要求MS响应的消息包括诸如寻呼、短数据脉冲(SDB)消息、状态请求消息与短消息服务(SMS)消息等消息。 It requires MS response message includes paging, such as a short data burst (SDB) message, a status request message and a short message service (SMS) messages and other information.

基于WPP 215监测的消息与消息响应,WPP 215维护(即,存 WPP 215 based on the message and message response monitoring, maintenance WPP 215 (i.e., memory

10储和/或更新)MS 201的最后已知位置信息。 Reservoir 10 and / or update) MS 201 last known location information. 在第一实施例中,最后 In the first embodiment, the last

已知位置信息是小区ID,尽管作为可供选择的另一种替代方案,它可以包括基站ID、一组小区ID、或位置区域代码(LAC)。 Known location information is a cell ID, although as an alternative to another alternative, it may comprise a base station ID, a group of a cell ID, or location area codes (LAC). 通过以这种方式存储位置信息,可以仅在认为其正在操作的小区(或多个小区) 内向MS201发信号。 By this way, the storage location information, may be considered only when it is operating within a cell (or cells) MS201 signal. 这有助于第一实施例支持出席状态的效率。 This helps patients to support the efficiency of state attending the first embodiment.

当WPP 215接收到响应其发起的信令的消息响应时,WPP 215 可推断MS201的出席状态中没有改变。 When WPP 215 which receives a response message in response to signaling initiated, WPP 215 can infer the presence status has not changed in the MS201. 可以是MS201已改变位置, 即,MS 201从不同于由WPP215的关于MS201的最后已知位置信息所指示的小区进行响应。 MS201 position may be changed, i.e., MS 201 responds with a cell differs from a last known location information on the MS201 is indicated WPP215. 在此情形中,WPP 215更新其关于MS 201 的最后已知位置信息。 In this case, WPP 215 update the last known location information about the MS 201. 并且,WPP 215可向出席状态服务器225确认MS 201的出席状态(尽管其尚未改变)。 And, WPP 215 may attend to the state server 225 to confirm the presence status MS 201 (although it has not changed). 该确认可允许出席状态服务器225重置其关于MS 201的ping定时器。 This confirmed the presence status may allow the server 225 resets the timer on MS 201 to ping. 类似地,WPP 215也可使用其推断MS 201的出席状态中没有改变,来开始或停止其用于维护MS 201的出席状态信息的定时器。 Similarly, WPP 215 which may be used to infer the presence status has not changed in the MS 201 to start or stop its timer for maintaining the presence status information of the MS 201.

WPP 215可能未接收到对其发起的信令的响应。 WPP 215 may not receive a response to its initiated signaling. WPP 215将使用定时器(或多个定时器)来建立响应时期,在该时期中等待响应,等待任何重复的信令,和等待使用其它形式的信令(例如MSC引导的信令,在下面描述)的尝试。 WPP 215 using a timer (or timers) to establish a response period, the response wait period, repeating waiting for any signaling and waiting signaling (e.g. MSC guide Other forms of signaling, the following description) attempt. 当在响应时期内未接收到响应时,WPP215 可推断MS201的出席状态从"存在"变为"不存在"。 When a response is not received within the response period, WPP215 inferred MS201 presence status from "present" to "absent."
