Description

通信网络信号发送 Signal transmission communication network

技术领域 FIELD

[0001] 本公开涉及通信系统和在消息发送方和消息接收方之间的信号发送(signaling) 0 [0001] The present disclosure relates to a communication system and a signal transmitted between a message sender and a message recipient (signaling) 0

背景技术 Background technique

[0002] 随着在1991年基于GSM数字的电信系统的引入,已经向移动订户提供了多种高级非语音服务。 [0002] With the introduction of a telecommunications system based on GSM digital in 1991, it has provided a variety of advanced non-voice services to mobile subscribers. 一种这样的服务包括短消息服务(SMQ。SMS包括发往和来自短消息实体(SME)的短文本消息的传输。短消息实体可以包括移动设备、固定线路电话、传真机、IP可寻址设备或能够发送或接收数据或语音通信的任何类似的设备。例如,使用SMS消息,移动订户可以与另一个移动站或SME终端通信文本消息,而不在其间建立呼叫连接。在移动到移动实现方式中,第一订户简单地键入期望的文本消息,指示与目的地订户相关联的号码簿号码,并且发送封装期望的文本消息的SMS消息。 One such services include short message service (SMQ.SMS transmissions to and including the short text message from a short message entity (SME) The short message entity may include a mobile device, a fixed-line telephone, facsimile machine, the IP addressable device or any similar device capable of sending or receiving data or voice communications. For example, using SMS messages, the message may be a mobile subscriber station or another mobile communication terminal SME text, without establishing a call connection therebetween. in the mobile to mobile implementations the first subscriber simply key in the desired text message, indicating the destination directory number associated with the subscriber, and sending an SMS message encapsulating a desired text message.

[0003] 传统上,SMS消息通常限于160字母数字字符,并且不包含图像或图形。 [0003] Conventionally, SMS messages is typically limited to 160 alphanumeric characters and contain no images or graphics. 所发送的消息被短消息服务中心(SMSC)或其他设备接收,该短消息服务中心(SMSC)或其他设备负责将消息路由到适当的设备。 Message transmitted short message service center is responsible for (SMSC) or other receiving device, the short message service center (SMSC) or other device to route messages to the appropriate device. SMSC向与移动电信系统相关联的归属位置寄存器(HLR)发送SMS路由请求,以找到接收方(例如,每当接收方可能在漫游时)。 SMSC sends to the home location register associated with the mobile telecommunication system linked (HLR) SMS routing requests to locate the recipient (e.g., the recipient may at each time when roaming). 响应于该请求,HLR向SMSC提供订户的状态:不活跃的或活跃的;以及订户当前在何处漫游。 In response to the request, HLR provides a subscriber to the SMSC states: active or inactive; and where the subscriber is currently roaming. 如果响应是“不活跃的”,则SMSC将该信息保持一段时间。 If the response is "inactive", the SMSC that information for a period of time. 当订户访问他的设备时,HLR向SMSC发送SMS通知, 并且SMSC试图传递。 When the subscriber to access his equipment, HLR sends an SMS notification to the SMSC, and the SMSC attempts to pass. 传统上,SMSC以短消息传递点到点格式来向与接收方设备相关联的MSC传送该消息。 Traditionally, SMSC Short Messaging point format to transmit the message to the MSC associated with the receiving-side apparatus. MSC继而寻呼该设备,并且如果它响应,则该消息得到传递。 MSC then the paging apparatus, and if it is a response, the message been transmitted. SMSC在接收到该消息被终端用户接收的验证时将该消息分类为“已发送”,并且将不再试图发送。 SMSC the message is classified as "sent" Upon receiving the authentication message is received by the end user, and will not attempt to send.

[0004] 虽然初始很少使用SMS消息传送服务,但是当今,包括传统移动蜂窝电话用户的传统用户已经将SMS消息传送用作替代和期望的通信形式。 [0004] Although the initial SMS messaging services are rarely used, but today, including a conventional mobile cellular telephone user that the user has a conventional SMS message as an alternative form of communication and the desired transmission. 消息传送的计费可以基于多个因素。 Charging message transmission may be based on a number of factors. 可以基于例如消息的目的地(本地、国际、服务平台等)来对消息评级(to rate),并且可以在逐个消息的基础上估计费用。 For example, it can be destination of the message (local, international, service platforms, etc.) to a charge based on the message rating (to rate), and can be estimated on the basis of per-message. 在本地网络提供商上发起和结束的每消息或每时段(例如,在预先限定的计费周期中无限制的文本消息)的其他形式的计费是常见的。 Other forms of initiation and end of each message on the local network provider or per time period (e.g., unlimited in predefined text message billing period) are common billing. 通常, 至少在北美市场中,对于所发送的每一个消息,对于消息的发送方和接收方都收费。 Typically, at least in North America, for each message sent, the message for the sender and recipient are charged. 然而, 全球计费标准是发送方付费(在这些系统中的接收方通常不被收费)。 However, the global accounting standard is sending party pays (receiver in these systems are usually not charged).

[0005] 蜂鸣是用于描述在蜂窝通信系统上向另一个用户“发送信号”的过程的术语。 [0005] The term & beep is a process on a cellular communication system to another user "transmitted signal" is described. 希望向另一方(接收方)发送信号的一方(呼叫方)可以拨打与接收方相关联的电话号码, 并且当与其相关联的电话开始鸣响时,可以在接收方应答之前挂机,在被呼叫方的手机上产生“蜂鸣”。 The desired party (calling party) another party (the recipient) of the transmission signal can dial a phone number associated with the recipient, and when the associated phone starts ringing, may hang up before the receiving party answers, the called generated on the side of the phone "beep." 该挂机导致未接来电显示在与接收方相关联的手机上,而不对呼叫者产生可计费的事件。 The hook results in missed call is displayed on the phone associated with the recipient, without generating charging events may be the caller. 这类信号可以由被呼叫方解释为多种方式的任何一种(例如,“给我打电话”、 “我在路上”、“我在家中”、“我刚刚着陆”),其中,通常在双方之间预先安排了该“协议”。 Such signals may be (for example, "Call me", "I'm on the road", "I'm home," "I just landed") of any party to be interpreted as calling a variety of ways, which usually the pre-arranged between the parties' agreement. " 这种类型的通信已经变得广泛。 This type of communication has become widespread. 而且,网络和通信基础设施使用大量的资源来支持这些“蜂鸣”,而没有任何收入产生(即,呼叫建立、用于建立和完成到被呼叫方的信号路径的网络使用、向呼叫方播放铃声等的成本)。 Moreover, network and communications infrastructure use a lot of resources to support these "beep", without any income generated (ie, call setup, and complete to be used to establish a network using the caller's signal path, playing to the calling party ringtones and other costs). 期望用于在传统的蜂窝通信系统中允许这样的通信的替代方法,特别是如果它们在允许信号发送仍然以简单的方式发生的同时会对于通信系统提供商产生较少或无开销的成本。 Desirable alternative method for allowing such communication in the conventional cellular communication systems, especially if they are at the same time still allowing the signal transmission occurs in a simple manner produces little or no overhead cost of the communication system provider.

发明内容 SUMMARY

[0006] 提出了一种替代的信号发送方法和伴随的基础设置,其允许用户在例如蜂窝通信网络中向另一个用户发送信号,而不占用铃声。 [0006] An alternative proposed signal transmission method and the accompanying basic settings, which allows the user to transmit a signal, for example, a cellular communication network to another user without occupying tones. 不是在蜂窝通信系统中例如以同步的方式使用珍贵的系统资源来在接收方的手机上产生未接来电通知,用户可以使用所有异步完成而不挤占珍贵的网络资源和有限的无线频谱的信号发送协议和消息传送服务来“Ping”网络中的其他用户。 For example, is not in a synchronized manner using valuable system resources in a cellular communication system to generate a signal transmitted missed call notification, the user can not complete all asynchronous occupy valuable network resources and limited radio spectrum in the receiving phones protocols and messaging services to "Ping" to other users on the network. 在一种特定的实现方式中,用户可以将消息编址到期望的接收方,不提供消息内容,然后发送空消息以向期望的接收方传递呼叫方线路身份,而不占用铃声。 In one particular implementation, a user may be a message addressed to the desired recipient, the message content is not available, then transmitting a null message is transmitted to a desired receiver caller line identity, without taking tones. 该消息传递会有效地产生一种与使用未接来电样式的传统的蜂鸣相同的一种对接收方的信号发送(例如,“给我打电话”、“一切良好”),而没有对于网络的相关联的成本。 The messaging may effectively produce the same with the use of a traditional style missed call beep kind of signal transmitting and receiving side (e.g., "call me", "all good"), but not for the network the costs associated with it. 在替代实现方式中,呼叫方可以通过下述方式向呼叫接收方发送信号:发送包括将消息编址的消息,并且提供单独的信号发送码来作为该消息的消息主体。 In an alternative implementation, the caller may be transmitted by way of the following signals to the call recipient: transmitting a message addressed message, and provide a separate signal transmitting code as the message body of the message. 该信号发送码可以用于提供与蜂鸣体验类似的体验。 This signal may be used to provide transmission symbol beep experience similar to the experience. 接收方可以接收没有内容的消息或包括预先格式化的消息模板的已经由网络产生的消息,该模板不是由呼叫方具体输入的(例如,呈现“给我打电话”消息来作为向接收方提供的消息主体,而用户不必键入消息主体本身)。 The recipient may not receive a message content or message template including pre-formatted message has been generated by the network, the template is not specifically entered by the caller (e.g., presenting, "call me" message as provided to the recipient the body of the message, without having to type the message body itself). 这些“网络提供的模板”可以进一步指示接收方如何类似地以这种更有效的方式来“Ping”其他用户。 These "template provided by the network" may further instruct the recipient in such a manner similar to how a more efficient way to "Ping" to other users. 这个“禾Ij用指令向前传” 导致采用病毒似的服务,其以“2的η次方”传播。 This "Wo Ij pass forward with instruction" led to the use of virus-like service, its spread to "η 2 to the power." 下面进一步描述其他示例实现方式。 The following examples further describe other implementations.

[0007] 提供了用于处理具有纯信号发送信息或没有内容的SMS消息的方法、系统、装置和计算机程序产品。 [0007] provided for processing a signal having a pure or SMS message is not transmitting information content to a method, system, apparatus, and computer program product. 以消息提供的信号发送可以用于以与通信网络相关联的很小的开销成本来在呼叫方和被呼叫方之间中继消息。 Transmitting a message signal may be used to provide a small overhead cost associated with the communication network linked to relay messages between the calling party and the called party. 可以鼓励用户不再向其他用户发送蜂鸣,以便更有效地利用通信网络资源。 Beep can encourage the user to no longer send to other users to more efficiently utilize the communication network resources. 可以鼓励用户通过多种不同的方法的任何一种来采用替代形式的信号发送,最终使得转变离开现有的蜂鸣行为。 Signal transmission may encourage the user to a number of different methods to use any alternative form, such that the final transition buzzer leaving the existing behavior. 例如,可以通过强调额外的益处来激励用户使用所述的SMS ping服务。 For example, it can encourage users to use the SMS ping service by highlighting additional benefits. 不像蜂鸣那样,所公开的替代的ping方法提供加速的和保证的服务。 Unlike as beep, ping alternate methods disclosed herein provide accelerated and guaranteed service. 发送方仅占用片刻(而不是必须保持线路以便听到目的地铃声),并且保证接收方接收到ping,即使在它被发送时不可获得。 The sender only by a short (but not necessarily kept ringing line to hear the destination), and ensure that the receiver of ping is received, even when it is transmitted is not available. 可以通过本发明的一个或多个方面来实现这些和其他优点。 You can achieve these and other advantages through one or more aspects of the present invention.

[0025] 现在参考图2,示出用于在通信网络中在发送方和接收方之间进行通信的示例方法。 [0025] Referring now to Figure 2, there is shown an example of a method for communication between a sender and a receiver in a communication network. 该方法可以部分地由例如SME和通信网络中的一个或多个其他部件执行。 The method may in part by a SME and a communication network, for example, one or more other components.

[0026] 在步骤210,发送方将消息编址到地址接收方。 [0026] In step 210 the recipient address, the sender message addressed to. 编址可以包括确定用于期望的接收方的移动订户电话号码。 Addressing may comprise determining mobile subscriber telephone number for the desired recipient. 可以从存储器检索移动订户电话号码,或作为对与消息编辑器相关联的按键输入的输入来提供移动订户电话号码,或可以在选择答复先前接收的消息时通过消息传送应用自动地提供移动订户电话号码。 Providing the mobile subscriber call using a messaging application automatically when may be retrieved from memory of the mobile subscriber's phone number, or as an input to the key input message editor associated to provide a mobile subscriber telephone number, or may select a message reply to a previously received number. 编址可以包括:启动与移动通信终端相关联的消息传送应用,并且输入地址或者从存储器检索地址。 Addressing may include: initiate messaging application associated with the mobile communication terminal, and the input address or retrieved from a memory address. 例如,发送方可以启动与发送方的移动设备相关联的SMS应用,并且使用与SMS应用相关联的消息传送编辑器来将SMS消息编址到期望的接收方。 For example, the sender may initiate an SMS application sender associated with the mobile device and associated with the use of SMS messaging application editor SMS message addressed to the desired recipient.

[0027] 在步骤220,在将消息编址后,发送方启动发送该消息。 [0027] In step 220, after the message is addressed, the sender starts transmitting the message. 更具体地,不用在消息的消息主体部分中包括任何消息内容,发送方启动发送操作。 More specifically, without including any message content in the message body part of the message, the sender starts transmitting operation. 例如,用户可以按下与移动终端相关联的发送按钮,并且启动向期望的接收方的SMS消息的发送。 For example, the user may press the send button associated with the mobile terminal, and starts to send an SMS message to the desired recipient. 可以提示用户确定是否期望是由发送应用发送没有的消息内容。 You can prompt the user to determine whether it is desired by the sending application is not sending the message content. 例如,与移动终端相关联的消息传送应用(例如, SMS应用)可以在接收到发送指令时评估被提出待发送的消息,包括确定是否不包括消息内容。 For example, associated with the mobile terminal associated messaging application (e.g., SMS applications) can evaluate the message is presented to be transmitted upon receiving the transmission instruction, including determining whether the message content is not included. 如果不包括消息内容,则该消息传送应用可以提示用户确保该发送行为不是草率的, 或确定发送用户的意图。 If you do not include the message content, the messaging application can prompt the user to ensure that the sending behavior is not sloppy, or determined to send the user's intent. 在这些实现方式中,可以提示用户验证期望发送的无内容消息,并且在验证后,用户可以继续如下详细所述的处理。 In these implementations, the user may be prompted to verify no content desired transmitted message, and after verification, the user can continue according to a process detailed. 在一些实现方式中,省略这个验证步骤, 以有利于最小化高度重复的功能所需的键击的数量。 In some implementations, the verification step are omitted, to facilitate minimize the number of keystrokes required for highly repetitive functions. 在一些实现方式中,这种方法允许用户在读取先前接收的SMS消息(在消息框中存储并被访问)时以仅两个点击来发送ping, 如按下可以被标注为“答复”的可编程按键并且然后按下然后被标注为“发送”的同一按键, 而没有任何另外的键盘输入。 In some implementations, this method allows the user to read the SMS message previously received (and stored in the access message box) to send only two of ping clicking, pressing can be labeled as "answer" in and then press programmable key labeled "send" button of the same, without any additional keyboard input. 这种双击行为相对于传统的蜂鸣传递充分增强的用户体验。 Double-click this behavior with respect to the traditional beep transfer substantially enhanced user experience.

[0028] 在步骤230,可以向期望的接收方发送无内容消息。 [0028] In step 230, no content may send a message to the desired recipient. 在一些实现方式中,发送可以包括:对于无内容消息,旁路移动终端的编码器。 In some implementations, the transmission may include: no content message to bypass the mobile terminal encoder. 即,因为不包括消息内容,所以可以不必编码所发送的消息。 That is, since the message content is not included, it may not necessarily transmitted encoded message. 无编码节省了本地系统资源和功耗。 No coding saves local system resources and power consumption. 发送可以包括:向SMSC传递SMS消息;确定与期望的接收方相关联的MSC ;期望的接收方的可用性的状态查看;以及最终向期望的接收方传递该消息。 Transmission may comprise: transmitting an SMS message to the SMSC; MSC determining the desired recipient associated; the availability of the desired recipient state view; and finally pass the message to the desired recipient. 发送也可以包括本地或远程地处理该消息,包括修改该消息以包括预定的消息主体,如将在下文更详细描述的。 Transmission may also include a local or remote processing the message, the message includes modifying the message to include a predetermined body, as will be described in more detail below. 或者,可能不需要任何修改,并且可以以基本/最简单格式(即,没有消息内容)来传递该无内容消息。 Alternatively, it may not require any modification, and may be substantially / simplest format (i.e., no message content) to deliver the message no content.

[0029] 在步骤M0,无内容消息被接收并呈现给期望的接收方。 [0029] In step M0, no content message is received and presented to the desired recipient. 向期望的接收方的呈现可以包括向期望的接收方呈现没有消息内容的消息(即,以与由发送终端原始发送相同的形式来呈现消息)。 To exhibit the desired recipient may include the desired message recipient presenting no message content (i.e., the same as the original form by a transmitting terminal to render message). 或者,无内容消息可以包括已经由例如网络部件提供的预定的消息主体。 Alternatively, no content may include a predetermined message has a message body, for example, provided by a network member. 例如,可以向期望的接收方呈现消息,该消息包括基于与发送方和接收方相关联的会话的预定消息。 For example, the message may be presented to the desired recipient, the message comprising a predetermined message based on the session with the sender and the recipient associated. 例如,可以修改由发送方向接收方发送的第一消息(即,由发送方指定的不包括内容的无内容消息)以包括消息主体,该消息主体包括消息主体“给我打电话”。 For example, modifying the first message is received by the transmission side transmission direction (i.e., designated by the sender of the message content does not include no content) to include the message body, the message body comprises a message body "call me." 消息接收方的答复可以导致另一个无内容消息事务,其中,接收方通过返回他自己的无内容消息(例如,仅启动答复,而不提供任何消息主体内容)来答复原始发送方。 Reply to a message recipient can lead to another no content message transactions, which, by the recipient to return to his own no content messages (for example, start only reply, without providing any message body content) to reply to the original sender. 在接收方的移动终端中的消息应用可以启动不包括消息主体的答复消息。 Application message recipient's mobile terminal may initiate a reply message without the message body. 无消息内容答复可以继而被传递并被修改以包括由系统的一些部件提供的消息主体,该消息主体包括例如消息主体“好,尽快”。 No reply message content may then be transferred and modified to include a message body of some components provided by the system, the message body comprises a message body, for example, "good, as soon as possible."

[0030] 在无内容消息事务中的其他形式的基于会话的消息主体修改/包括是可能的。 [0030] In other forms of no content-based message transaction session modification message body / it includes are possible. 另外,空消息主体修改和替代可以是关于如下因素确定的:诸如发送消息的一天中的时刻; 发送消息的位置;在相同的两方之间发送和接收的先前Ping消息的数量;以及消息发送的速度。 Further, an empty message body modifications and alternative may be determined on the following factors: the time of day, such as transmitting a message; transmitting the position message; Ping number of previous messages sent and received between both of the same; and a message transmission speed. 在后一种情况下,快速连续地向同一目的地发送的多个消息可以例如通过在所传递的消息中包含紧急来智能地积聚和/或逐步增强Ping服务。 In the latter case, a plurality of messages in rapid succession to the same destination can be transmitted by including an emergency, for example, be smart accumulation and / or a gradual increase in the Ping message delivery service in. 服务逐步增强可以导致传递空消息的第一空消息。 Service can lead to gradually increase the first empty empty messaging messages. 在从第一个起的特定变化时间范围发送的第二空消息可以导致传递“给我打电话”消息。 The second empty message sent at a particular time range changes from the first pass play can lead to "call me" message. 第三和第四消息类似地逐步增强通信协议,如在“尽快给我打电话”和“赶快给我打电话”中那样。 The third and fourth message that is similar to gradually increase communication protocols, such as "Call me as soon as possible" and "Call me as soon as possible" in that.

[0031] 现在参考图3,示出用于在通信网络中在发送方和接收方之间进行通信的一种替代示例方法。 [0031] Referring now to Figure 3, there is shown an alternative exemplary method for performing communication between a sender and a receiver in a communication network. 该方法可以部分地由例如SME和通信网络中的一个或多个其他部件执行。 The method may in part by a SME and a communication network, for example, one or more other components.

[0032] 在步骤310,发送方将消息编址到地址接收方。 [0032] In step 310 the recipient, the sender message addressed to the address. 编址可以包括确定用于期望的接收方的移动订户电话号码。 Addressing may comprise determining mobile subscriber telephone number for the desired recipient. 可以从存储器检索移动订户电话号码,或作为对与消息编辑器相关联的按键输入的输入提供移动订户电话号码,或可以在选择答复先前接收的消息时由消息传送应用自动地提供移动订户电话号码。 Providing the mobile subscriber's phone number by the messaging application automatically when may be retrieved from memory of the mobile subscriber's phone number, or provided as a mobile subscriber telephone number input key entered by the message editor associated with, or may select a message reply to a previously received . 编址可以包括:启动与移动通信终端相关联的消息传送应用,并且输入地址或者从存储器检索地址。 Addressing may include: initiate messaging application associated with the mobile communication terminal, and the input address or retrieved from a memory address. 例如,发送方可以启动与发送方的移动设备相关联的SMS应用,并且使用与SMS应用相关联的消息传送编辑器来将SMS消息编址到期望的接收方。 For example, the sender may initiate an SMS application sender associated with the mobile device and associated with the use of SMS messaging application editor SMS message addressed to the desired recipient.

[0033] 在步骤320,发送方键入作为与待发送的消息相关联的消息主体的信号。 [0033] In step 320, the sender of the message body type signal as a message to be sent is associated. 该信号可以具有无消息内容的形式。 The signal may have the form without the message content. 或者,该信号可以具有包括一个或多个字母数字字符或符号的信号码的形式。 Alternatively, the signal may comprise the form of one or more alphanumeric characters or symbols channel number. 在一些实现方式中,该信号具有多个字母数字字符或符号的形式。 In some implementations, the signal has the form of a plurality of alphanumeric characters or symbols. 在这些实现方式中,期望将信号长度保持得最小,以最小化与向期望接收方发送和处理消息相关联的开销成本。 In these implementations, the length of the desired signal is kept to a minimum to minimize transmission to the intended recipient and the message processing overhead associated costs. 在一种实现方式中,信号码是仅包括“*”字符的消息主体。 In one implementation, the channel number is only a message body comprises a "*" characters. 在另一种实现方式中,信号码是具有一个或多个空格的消息主体。 In another implementation, the channel number having one or more spaces in the message body.

[0034] 在步骤330,在将消息编址后,发送方启动发送该消息。 [0034] In step 330, the message addressed to the sender starts transmitting the message. 更具体地,在包括作为消息的消息主体部分的信号后并且不在消息主体中包括任何其他内容,发送方启动发送操作。 More particularly, and not include any other message body contents of the message signal including a message body part, the transmission side starts the transmission operation. 例如,用户可以按下与移动终端相关联的发送按钮,并且启动向期望的接收方发送包括该信号的SMS消息。 For example, the user may press the send button associated with the mobile terminal, and starts to transmit the desired recipient a message including the SMS signals. 可以提示用户确定是否该信号期望由发送应用发送。 It may prompt the user to determine whether the desired signal transmitted by the transmitting application. 例如,与移动终端相关联的消息传送应用(例如,SMS应用)可以在接收到发送指令时评估被提出的待发送的消息,包括确定是否包括信号(并且仅该信号)。 For example, associated with the mobile terminal associated messaging application (e.g., SMS applications) can evaluate the message to be transmitted is made when receiving the transmission command signal includes determining whether to include (and this signal only). 如果包括该信号,则该消息传送应用可以提示用户确保该发送行为不是草率的,或确定发送用户的意图。 If you include this signal, the messaging application can prompt the user to ensure that the sending behavior is not sloppy, or determined to send the user's intent. 在这些实现方式中,可以提示用户验证意图发送的无内容消息,并且在验证后,用户可以继续如下详细所述的处理。 In these implementations, the user may be prompted to verify no content message intended to be transmitted, and after verification, the user can continue according to a process detailed.

[0035] 在步骤340,可以向期望的接收方发送无内容消息。 [0035] In step 340, no content may send a message to the desired recipient. 在一些实现方式中,发送可以包括:对于无内容消息,旁路移动终端的编码器。 In some implementations, the transmission may include: no content message to bypass the mobile terminal encoder. 即,因为不包括消息内容(即,仅发送信号码),所以可以不必编码所发送的消息。 That is, since the message does not include a message content (i.e., transmitting only letter number), it may not necessarily encode transmitted. 无编码节省了本地系统资源和功耗。 No coding saves local system resources and power consumption. 发送可以包括:向SMSC传递SMS消息;确定与期望的接收方相关联的MSC ;期望的接收方的可用性的状态查看;以及最终向期望的接收方传递该消息。 Transmission may comprise: transmitting an SMS message to the SMSC; MSC determining the desired recipient associated; the availability of the desired recipient state view; and finally pass the message to the desired recipient. 发送也可以包括本地或远程地处理该消息, 这包括检测信号码并且修改该消息以包括预定的消息主体,如上已经公开。 Transmission may also include local or remote processes the message, including the number of detection signals and modifying the message to include a predetermined message body, as already disclosed. 或者,可以不需要任何修改,并且可以以其基本/最简单格式(即,没有消息内容并且仅有信号码)来传递无内容消息。 Alternatively, without any modification, and it may be no content delivery message with its base / simplest format (i.e., not just the letter number and message content). 或者,处理消息可以包括剥离信号码(例如,如果包括任何字符或符号)并且向期望的接收方转发空消息主体消息(或者其他预定的消息主体内容)。 Alternatively, the process may include a release message signal code (e.g., if comprising any character or symbol) and forwards an empty message body of the message (or other predetermined message body content) to a desired recipient.

[0036] 在步骤350,无内容消息被接收并呈现给期望的接收方。 [0036] In step 350, the message is received and presented no content to the desired recipient. 向期望的接收方的呈现可以包括向期望的接收方呈现没有的消息内容(即,以与由发送终端原始发送相同的形式来呈现消息)或仅有信号码的消息。 To exhibit the desired recipient may include the desired message recipient presenting no content (i.e., the same as the original transmitted by the transmitting terminal in the form of presenting the message) message or a channel number only. 或者,无内容消息可以包括已经由例如网络部件提供的预定的消息主体。 Alternatively, no content may include a predetermined message has a message body, for example, provided by a network member. 例如,可以向期望的接收方呈现消息,该消息包括基于与发送方和接收方相关联的会话的预定消息。 For example, the message may be presented to the desired recipient, the message comprising a predetermined message based on the session with the sender and the recipient associated. 例如,可以修改由发送方向接收方发送的第一消息(即,由发送方指定的不包括内容的无内容消息)以包括消息主体,该消息主体包括消息主体“给我打电话”。 For example, modifying the first message is received by the transmission side transmission direction (i.e., designated by the sender of the message content does not include no content) to include the message body, the message body comprises a message body "call me." 消息接收方的答复可以导致另一个无内容消息事务,其中,通过返回接收方他自己的无内容消息(例如,仅启动答复,而不提供任何消息主体内容)来答复原始发送方。 Reply to a message recipient can lead to another no content message transactions, which, by his own return to the recipient no content messages (for example, start only reply, without providing any message body content) to reply to the original sender. 在接收方的移动终端中的消息应用可以启动不包括消息主体的答复消息。 Application message recipient's mobile terminal may initiate a reply message without the message body. 无消息内容答复可以继而被传递并被修改以包括由系统的一些部件提供的消息主体,该消息主体包括例如消息主体“好,尽快”。 No reply message content may then be transferred and modified to include a message body of some components provided by the system, the message body comprises a message body, for example, "good, as soon as possible." 在无内容消息事务中的其他形式的基于会话的消息主体修改/包括是可能的。 Other forms of no content-based message transaction session modification message body / include are possible.

[0037] 现在参考图4,提供了用于处理来自发送方的消息的示例方法。 [0037] Referring now to Figure 4, an example method for processing the message from the sender. 该方法可以例如由通信网络中的SMSC执行。 The method may be performed, for example, by a communications network SMSC. 该通信网络可以是蜂窝通信网络,其包括用于发送语音内容以及消息(例如,SMS消息)的通信信道。 The communication network may be a cellular communication network comprising a communication channel for transmitting voice content and message (e.g., SMS messages). 其他通信网络以及其他形式的消息传送系统也是可能的。 Other communication networks and other forms of messaging system is also possible.

[0038] 在步骤410,进行确定已经接收到消息。 [0038] In step 410, a determination has been received message. 例如,SMSC可以确定是否已经从发送方的移动电话接收到短(SMS)消息。 For example, SMSC may determine whether a short has been received (SMS) message from a sender's mobile phone. 如果未接收到消息,则该处理可以在待机模式中继续(步骤420)等待待传递的消息(例如,等待要从发送方的移动电话发送的消息)。 If the message is not received, the process may continue (step 420) in a standby mode waiting for messages (e.g., message waiting to be transmitted from the mobile phone side of the transmission) to be transmitted.

[0039] 在步骤430,如果接收到短消息,则搜索该消息的报头以确定期望的接收方。 [0039] In step 430, if the short message is received, the search of the header of the message to determine the desired recipient. 例如, SMSC可以搜索所接收的短消息的报头。 For example, SMSC can search for a header of the received message. 如上所述,该报头包括目的地地址字段(例如,移动终端订户电话号码)。 As described above, the header includes a destination address field (e.g., the mobile terminal subscriber's phone number).

[0040] 在步骤440,做出确定所接收的消息是否是无内容消息。 [0040] In step 440, determination is made whether the received message is a message no content. 例如,可以做出确定所接收的消息是否没有消息内容或是否包括作为所接收的消息的消息主体信号码(例如,不包括其他消息内容)。 For example, the message body may be made of the received channel number to determine whether or not a message or message content is included in the message as received (e.g., no other message content). 例如,SMSC可以检测没有消息内容。 For example, SMSC can not detect the message content. 或者,SMSC可以将消息内容与存储的信号码作比较。 Alternatively, SMSC message content may be stored channel number for comparison. 可以本地存储或从远程服务检索所存储的信号码。 You may be stored locally or retrieved from a remote service channel numbers stored. 如果所存储的信号码匹配消息主体内容,则做出肯定的确定。 If the signal code matches the stored message body content, the affirmative determination is made.

[0041] 如果在步骤440未检测到无内容消息,则处理在步骤450继续,在步骤450,向期望的接收方传递消息。 [0041] If the step is not detected at step 440 no content message, then the process 450 continues at step 450, passes the message to the desired recipient. 如上所述,传递可以包括:确定与发送方和期望的接收方的一个或多个相关联的MSC ;确定期望的接收方的状态;存储消息;格式化消息;并且最后向相关联的MSC传递该消息,以传递到与期望的接收方相关联的移动终端。 As described above, the transfer may include: determining a desired transmission side and the receiving side MSC or more associated; determining a desired state of the recipient; stored message; formatted message; and finally transmitted to the associated MSC the message for delivery to the desired mobile terminal associated with the recipient.

[0042] 如果在步骤440做出确定该消息是无内容消息,则在步骤460进一步处理该消息。 [0042] If a determination is made in step 440 that the message is no content message, then at step 460 the message is processed further. 在步骤460,对该消息评级。 In step 460, the message rating. 该评级可以基于无内容消息,并且例如不基于占线计次或消息量。 The rating may be based on no content messages, and not based, for example, once or busy message count amount. 可以例如由SMSC来执行评级。 For example, can be executed rating from SMSC. 替或者,可以由通信网络内的另一个部件来进行评级。 Alternatively Alternatively, the rate may be by another member within the communications network. 评级可以包括确定对于消息发送向谁收费(例如,发送方、接收方或第三方赞助者)。 The rating may comprise determining to whom the charges for the message (e.g., the sender, recipient or third party sponsor). 评级也可以包括向一方收费多少。 Ratings may also include how much to charge the party. 在一些实现方式中,发送无文本消息可以导致减低的消息成本(例如,可以对于传统的消息收费10美分,而对于无消息内容消息收费1美分)。 In some implementations, the text message without sending the message may result in a reduced cost (for example, charges 10 cents for the traditional message, the message content for the message no charges 1 cent). 为了有效地取代蜂鸣现象(振铃并且在呼叫应答之前断开,并且如此没有与该事件相关联的计费),使用所公开的空消息和信号码方法的Ping可以类似地“零评级”(即,消息由网络接受并传递,在一些实现方式中对于发送方和接收方没有成本)。 In order to effectively substituted beep phenomenon (ringing and the call is disconnected before answering, and no charging so associated with that event), and the Ping message signal code space using the methods disclosed can be similarly "zero rating" ( That is, the message transmitted by the network and receiving, at no cost to the sender and the recipient in some implementations). 评级也可以包括授权和速度查看(例如,确定是否在给定的时间段中订户发送了太多的无内容消息)。 Ratings may also include authorization to view and speed (for example, to determine whether the subscriber is no content sent too many messages in a given time period). 评级也可以包括计费功能,其中,对于消息发送向确定的付费者计费。 The rating may also include billing functions, wherein, the billing for the message sent to the payer identified.

[0043] 在评级后,可以在步骤450传递消息。 [0043] After rating, you can pass message in step 450.
