Hereinafter, an embodiment of a charging system and method for a response message of a mobile communication multimedia message service according to the present invention will be described with reference to the accompanying drawings.

In general, among the various protocol data units transmitted and received between the terminal and the server to implement a multimedia message service, the protocol data unit related to the 'billing for response message' option is a transmission request message (M-Send. req PDU), a notification message (M-Notification.ind PDU), an acknowledgment message (M-Retrieve.conf PDU), an acknowledgment message (M-Acknowledge.ind), and the like.

The information element related to the 'charge for response message' option includes a charge setting field (X-Mms-Reply-Charging) for the response message and a charge ID field (X-Mms-Reply-) for the response message. Charging-ID), a validity time field (X-Mms-Reply-Charging-Deadline) that stores the validity time value of the response message, and a size field (X-Mms-Reply-) that stores the size value of the response message Charging-Size). In this case, the fields are optional features included in the protocol data unit when the multimedia message in which the 'charge for response message' option is set is transmitted.

In the present invention, the payment information field (X-Mms-Reply-Charging-Oversize) and the charge approval field (X-Mms-Reply-Charging-Oversize-Allowed) as information elements related to the 'billing for response message' option. ) Is further defined.

The cost payment information field asks if the multimedia message client that is sending the response message is willing to pay for the excess size if the size of the response message is greater than the value of the size field. In this case, the payment information field is transmitted from the receiving server to the receiving client, and if the size field does not exist, the payment information field does not exist.

The charging authorization field indicates whether the multimedia message client sending the response message will or will not pay for the excess size. At this time, the charging approval field is transmitted from the receiving client to the receiving server, and is indicated as 'Yes' or 'No', and the default is set to 'Yes'.

Accordingly, the present invention checks through the cost payment information field and the charge approval field whether the receiving client is willing to pay for the response message exceeded by the server, so that the cost of the response message of limited size is increased. Charges to the receiving side and charges for an oversized response message to the receiving client.

1 is a block diagram illustrating a multimedia message service system according to the present invention.

As shown in FIG. 1, a transmitting client 10 and a receiving client 20 equipped with a multimedia message client and creating, storing, and transmitting a multimedia message including one or more media such as text, images, audio, and video are provided. And an MMSE 30 that performs transmission and reception and authentication / authorization of the multimedia message. Here, it is assumed that the transmitting client 10 and the receiving client 20 are connected through the same multimedia message service environment (MMSE).

The receiving client 20 determines whether to pay for the excess when the response message for the multimedia message in which the 'charge for response message' option is set exceeds the set size.

The MMSE 30 is composed of a sending server 31 and a receiving server 32, and compares the time and size of the response message with the 'charge for response message' option set to the valid time and size set by the sending client. According to the comparison result, a payment target for the response message is determined.

FIG. 2 is a flowchart illustrating a first embodiment of a charging method for a response message of a multimedia message service according to the present invention, and relates to a case in which the receiving server 32 transmits a notification message including a payment information field. .

First, the transmitting client 10 is activated to create a multimedia message, and the 'charge for response message' option of the multimedia message is set and transmitted (S11). When the sending client sets the 'billing for response message' option, it sets the idle time and size limit of the response message.

The transmitting server 31 receives the multimedia message from the transmitting client 10, checks the address of the receiving client 20 included in the header of the multimedia message, and controls the receiving client 20. In step S12, the multimedia message is transmitted.

Receiving the multimedia message from the transmitting server 31, the receiving server 32 transmits a notification message that there is a multimedia message to be transmitted to the receiving client (20) (S13). In this case, the notification message is a message to which the 'billing for response message' option is applied, and when the receiving client transmits a response message for the multimedia message exceeding a limited message size within a valid time. Include a message asking if you want to pay the excess. That is, the notification message includes a charge setting field for the response message, a valid time field of the response message, a size field, and a cost payment information field.

When the receiving client 20 confirms the notification message, the notification confirmation message for the notification message is transmitted to the receiving server 32 (S14). In this case, the notification confirmation message includes a charging approval field.

Assume that the charge approval field value is yes.

The reception server 32 receiving the notification confirmation message transmits a multimedia message to the reception client 20, and after the reception client 20 confirms the multimedia message (S15), a response message to the multimedia message is transmitted. It is determined whether or not (S16).

The receiving client decides to transmit the response message, and composes the response message and transmits the response message to the receiving server 32 (S17).

The receiving server 32 compares the transmission time of the response message with the valid time set by the transmitting client, and confirms whether the response message is transmitted within the valid time (S18). If it is confirmed that the response message is transmitted within the valid time, the receiving server 32 checks the size of the response message and the size of the response message set by the transmitting client (S19). In this case, the valid time and size of the response message may be confirmed by the transmission server 31.

By confirming the transmission time and the size of the response message, the sending server 31 or the receiving server 32 and the network element in charge of the charging decide the target of payment for the response message and charge. That is, when the transmission time of the response message exceeds the valid time, the receiving client is charged for the response message (S20), and when the response message is transmitted within the limited message size within the valid time, the transmission The client is charged for the response message (S21). If the response message is transmitted within the valid time but is transmitted over the limited message size, the sending client is charged for the limited message size and the receiving client is charged for the excess message size. S22).

After completing the billing, the response message is transmitted to the transmitting client 10 through the transmitting server 31 (S23). In this case, the transmitting server 31 may transmit a notification message indicating that a response message to be transmitted exists to the transmitting client 10 or directly transmit the response message without transmitting the notification message.

If the charge confirmation field of the notification confirmation message is set to 'no', the receiving server 32 does not transmit a response message exceeding the size to the receiving client 20 or the response message exceeds a limited size. Transmits the information to the receiving client 20. In this case, the receiving client 20 may rewrite the response message within a limited size and resend it.

3 is a signal flow diagram for the first embodiment, and shows protocol data units transmitted and received between the transmitting client 10, the MMSE 30, and the receiving client 20.

The sending client creates a multimedia message to set the 'billing for response message' option, sets the valid time and size of the response message, and then sends the multimedia message through the transmission request message (M-Send.req Protocol Data Unit). ). In this case, the transmission request message includes a charge setting field for the response message, a charge ID field for the response message, an effective time field, and a size field.

The MMSE 30 transmits a transmission acknowledgment message (M-Send.conf) indicating that the multimedia message has been received to the transmitting client 10, and indicates that there is a multimedia message to which the 'charge for response message' option is applied. The notification message M_Notification.ind is transmitted to the receiving client 20. In this case, the notification message includes a charge setting field for the response message, an expiration time field, a size field, and a payment information field for asking the receiving client of an intention to pay for the excess response message.

When the receiving client confirms the notification message including the payment information field, a notification confirmation message (M-NotifyResp.ind) is transmitted to the MMSE 30 through the receiving client 20. In this case, the notification confirmation message includes a charging approval field in which a decision of a receiving client regarding the cost of the excess response message is input.

The charging approval field is set to 'yes' or 'no' according to the selection of the receiving client. That is, when the receiving client is willing to pay the excess response message, the charging approval field is set to 'yes', and when the receiving client is not willing to pay the excess response message, Set the accounting approval field to 'No'. At this time, the default value of the charging approval field is set to 'Yes'.

The receiving client 20 requests the MMSE 30 to receive a multimedia message through a reception request message (WSP / HTTP GET.req) or sends an acknowledgment message (M-Retrieve.conf) without a separate request process. Receive a multimedia message from the MMSE 30 through.

After receiving the multimedia message, the receiving client 20 transmits an acknowledgment message (M-Acknowledge.ind) to the MMSE 30.

When the response message for the multimedia message is transmitted through the receiving client 20, the MMSE 30 receives the response message through the transmission request message (M-Send.req) and sends a transmission confirmation message (M-Send. conf) to the receiving client 20. In addition, the MMSE 30 determines a target to pay for the response message by comparing the transmission time and size of the response message with a set valid time and size.

Thereafter, the process of transmitting the response message to the transmitting client 10 is the same as or similar to the process of transmitting the multimedia message to the receiving client 20 through the MMSE 30.

4 is a flowchart illustrating a second embodiment of a charging method for a response message of a multimedia message service according to the present invention, in which a receiving server 32 includes a payment information field in a transmission confirmation message according to the size of the response message. It is about the case of transmission.

When the transmitting client transmits the multimedia message in which the 'charge for the response message' option is set (S31), the multimedia message is transmitted to the receiving server 32 controlling the receiving client 20 via the transmitting server 31. (S32).

Receiving the multimedia message from the transmitting server 31, the receiving server 32 transmits a notification message that the multimedia message to be transmitted to the receiving client 20 (S33). In this case, the notification message includes a charge setting field for the response message, a valid time field and a size field of the response message, and does not include a cost payment information field.

The receiving client 20 confirms the notification message and transmits a notification confirmation message for the notification message to the receiving server 32 (S34).

The reception server 32 receiving the notification confirmation message transmits a multimedia message to the reception client 20, and after the reception client 20 checks the multimedia message (S35), a response message to the multimedia message is transmitted. It is determined whether or not (S36).

When the receiving client creates a response message for the multimedia message and transmits it to the receiving server 32 through the transmission request message (S37), the receiving server 32 transmits the response time and the transmitting client. After comparing the set valid time (S38), the target of the billing (billing) is determined by comparing the size of the response message with the size of the response message set by the transmitting client (S39).

If the transmission time of the response message exceeds the valid time, the receiving client is determined as a billing target (S40). If the transmission time and size of the response message are within a set valid time and size, the sending client is determined. After determining as the billing target (S41), a transmission confirmation message is transmitted to the receiving client (S42). In this case, the transmission confirmation message does not include a cost payment information field.

If the response message is transmitted within the valid time but exceeds the limited message size, the reception server 32 transmits a transmission confirmation message including the payment information field to the reception client 20 (S43). The receiving client transmits to the receiving server 32 through the confirmation message whether there is a willingness to pay for the excess response message (S44). In this case, the definition of the payment information field is asking whether to pay for the excess response message since the size of the response message is exceeded. The confirmation message includes a charging approval field.

Assume that the charge approval field value is yes.

The receiving server 32 charges the cost for the message of the set size to the sending client and charges the cost corresponding to the excess message to the receiving client (S45).

After charging the response message to the transmitting client or the receiving client, the receiving server 32 transmits the response message to the transmitting client 10 (S46).

If the charge confirmation field of the notification confirmation message is set to 'no', the receiving server 32 does not transmit a response message exceeding the size to the receiving client 20 or the response message exceeds a limited size. Transmits the information to the receiving client 20. In addition, the receiving client may rewrite the response message within a predetermined size and transmit the received response message to the receiving server 32 or cancel the transmission of the response message in order not to pay for the excess response message.

FIG. 5 is a signal flow diagram of the second embodiment, which describes the charging method of the present invention through protocol data units transmitted and received between the transmitting client 10, the MMSE 30, and the receiving client 20. same.

When the transmitting client transmits the multimedia message in which the 'charge for the response message' option is set to the MMSE 30 through the transmission request message (M-Send.req PDU), the MMSE 30 sends the transmission confirmation message. Send to the sending client 10. In this case, the transmission request message includes a charge setting field for the response message, a charge ID field for the response message, a valid time field for the response message, and a size field.

The MMSE 30 transmits a notification message (M_Notification.ind) indicating that a multimedia message exists, and receives a notification confirmation message (M-NotifyResp.ind) from the receiving client 20. In this case, the notification message does not include a cost payment information field, and the notification confirmation message does not include a charge permission field.

The receiving client 20 requests the MMSE 30 to receive a multimedia message through a reception request message (WSP / HTTP GET.req) or through an acknowledgment message (M-Retrieve.conf) without a separate request process. Receive a multimedia message from the MMSE 30.

After receiving the multimedia message, the receiving client 20 transmits an acknowledgment message (M-Acknowledge.ind) to the MMSE 30.

When the response message for the multimedia message is transmitted through the receiving client 20, the MMSE 30 receives the response message through the transmission request message (M-Send.req) and transmits a transmission confirmation message (M-Send). .conf) to the receiving client 20. At this time, the transmission confirmation message is transmitted with or without the cost payment information field according to the size of the response message. The cost payment information field includes a content inquiring whether the response message exceeds the set size and whether the receiving client is willing to pay for the response message.

After receiving the transmission confirmation message included in the payment information field, the receiving client determines whether to pay the excess response message and transmits an acknowledgment message (M-Acknowledge.ind) to the MMSE 30. . In this case, the confirmation message includes a charging approval field.

Thereafter, the process of transmitting the response message to the transmitting client 10 is the same as or similar to the process of transmitting the multimedia message to the receiving client 20 through the MMSE 30.
In the present invention, the MMSE 30 may not only transmit a receipt confirmation message (M-Send.conf) to a confirmation message (M_Notification.ind) or a response message, but also receive the payment information (M-Retrieve.conf). The field may be transmitted.
If the MMSE 30 transmits an acknowledgment message including the payment information field, the receiving client 20 responds to the acknowledgment message including the charging approval field (M-Acknowledge.ind). ).

In the charging method of the mobile communication message service according to the present invention, as in the first and second embodiments, the receiving server determines the charging target according to the transmission time and size of the response message and the intention to pay the cost of the receiving client. In addition to the method, the receiving client directly checks the transmission time and size of the response message and transmits a willingness to pay.

That is, the transmission time and size of the response message created by the receiving client are compared with the valid time and size information set by the sending client, and the response message does not meet the valid time and size information set by the response client. Notify the receiving client. In this case, information on the valid time and size of the response message set by the transmitting client is stored in the receiving client, and the receiving client can check the information as necessary.

If the response message is sent after the validity time, the receiving client informs that the cost for the response message will be charged to the receiving client, and if the response message is sent within the limited message size within the valid time The client announces that the cost for the response message will be charged to the sending client. At this time, the cost payment information when the valid time has elapsed or meets the set information as described above may or may not be announced according to the user setting.

However, if the response message exceeds the limited message size within the validity time, the receiving client essentially informs the receiving client of the message asking whether the receiving client will bear the cost for the excess response message, and receiving If the client approves the cost, the charging approval field is sent to the receiving server together with the response message.

6 is a signal flow diagram illustrating a third embodiment of a charging method for a response message of a mobile communication multimedia message service according to the present invention, wherein the receiving client checks the transmission time and size of the response message and restricts the size of the response message. In case of exceeding the above, it is the case that the intention to pay the cost corresponding to the excess size of the response message is transmitted.

When the transmitting client transmits the multimedia message in which the 'charge for response message' option is set to the MMSE 30 through the transmission request message (M-Send.req PDU), the MMSE 30 transmits a transmission confirmation message. Send to client 10.

The MMSE 30 transmits a notification message (M_Notification.ind) indicating that a multimedia message exists, and receives a notification confirmation message (M-NotifyResp.ind) from the receiving client 20. In this case, the notification message includes valid time and size information for the response message, but does not include a cost payment information field, and the notification confirmation message does not include a charge permission field.

The receiving client 20 requests the MMSE 30 to receive a multimedia message through a reception request message (WSP / HTTP GET.req) or through an acknowledgment message (M-Retrieve.conf) without a separate request process. After receiving the multimedia message from the MMSE 30, a transmission confirmation message (M-Acknowledge.ind) is transmitted to the MMSE (30).

When the receiving client composes a response message to the multimedia message and instructs the transmission, the receiving client 20 compares the transmission time and size of the response message with a set valid time and size. At this time, if the response message exceeds the size set within the valid time, the receiving client 20 transmits a transmission request message (M-Send.req) including the response message and the charge approval field to the MMSE 30. do.

After receiving the transmission request message, the MMSE 30 transmits a transmission acknowledgment message (M-Send.conf) to the receiving client 20, and then determines a charging target for the response message. That is, if the transmission time of the response message exceeds the valid time, the receiving client is determined as the charging target. If a response message smaller than the set size is transmitted within the valid time, the transmitting client is determined as the charging target, and the set size is determined. If a larger response message is sent with the charging authorization message within the validity time, the receiving client is determined to be charged for the excess size of the response message.

Thereafter, the process of transmitting the response message to the transmitting client 10 is the same as or similar to the process of transmitting the multimedia message to the receiving client 20 through the MMSE 30.

As described above, in the mobile communication message service system of the present invention, when the server transmits a notification message (M-Notification.ind) including a cost payment information field (X-Mms-Reply-Charging-Oversize), the terminal charges. A notification message including an acknowledgment field (X-Mms-Reply-Charging-Oversize-Allowed) indicates the intention to pay for the excess response message.

In addition, when the server transmits the payment confirmation field (X-Mms-Reply-Charging-Oversize) in the transmission confirmation message (M-Send.conf) for the response message, the terminal transmits a charge approval field (X- A confirmation message (M-Acknowledge.ind) including Mms-Reply-Charging-Oversize is transmitted to the server.

In addition, when the terminal receiving the multimedia message transmits a response message exceeding the set size, the terminal itself compares the size of the response message with the set size and includes a billing approval field if the size exceeds the set size. The send request message (M-Send.req) is transmitted to the server.

As described above, the charging system and method of the mobile communication message service according to the present invention, even if the response message for the multimedia message with the 'charge for the response message' option is set to exceed the limited size within the effective time This has the effect of clearly defining the cost of the response message.

In addition, the billing system and method of the mobile communication message service according to the present invention has the effect of reducing the unreasonable charges by clearly defining the target of the payment of the response message for the multimedia message in which the 'billing for the response message' option is set. have.
