  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION
  • [0012]
    Referring to FIG. 1, a diagram of hybrid system 100 embodying the present invention is depicted. Hybrid device 105 may communicate through first wireless link 106 with an antenna at cellular base station 110. Such communication is well known in the art and is employed, for example, in many wireless networks throughout the world. Cellular base station 110 and other similar base stations are connected to cellular network 130 through a mobile switching center (not shown). Cellular network 130 may include various network components well-known in the art and used to communicate with other networks, such as, for example, a Public Switched Telephone Network (not shown). Additionally or alternatively, hybrid device 105 may also connect to wireless base station 120 through a second wireless link 107, thereby communicating with computer network 140.
  • [0013]
    Cellular network 130 may be, for example, a wireless telephony network complying with the Global System for Mobile communications (GSM), Digital-Advanced Mobile Phone Service (DAMPS), Interim Standard (IS) 136, IS 95 standards, or any other Personal Communications Services (PCS) wireless network. The term “network” as used herein refers generally to typical infrastructure and components of a telecommunications network, such as base stations, mobile switching centers, switching and control networks, and any other related nodes or elements, including Visitor Location Registers (VLR), Signaling Control Points, message centers, and the like. Computer network 140 may be, for example, an internet service provider (ISP) network connected to the Internet, while wireless base station 120 may be, for example, a base station complying with the WiFi (IEEE 802.11) or WiMAX (IEEE 802.16) standards. Together, computer network 140 and wireless base station 120 form a short-haul communications network.
  • [0014]
    Hybrid network 160 comprises cellular network 130 coupled to computer network 140 through control network 150. In one embodiment, control network 150 may comprise an applications processor, a gateway, and a location entity, such as a Home Location Register (HLR). U.S. Pat. No. 5,978,672, issued Nov. 2, 1999, and U.S. Pat. No. 6,181,935, issued Jan. 30, 2001, both entitled MOBILITY EXTENDED TELEPHONE APPLICATION PROGRAMMING INTERFACE AND METHOD OF USE and hereby incorporated by reference, disclose systems and methods for interconnecting different networks into a hybrid network. As disclosed in the U.S. Pat. No. 5,978,672, the applications processor and gateway of control network 150 may function as an interface by converting and reformatting messages between cellular network 130 and computer network 140.
  • [0015]
    Control network 150 may include a location entity that allows carriers to comply with CALEA and E911 rules by identifying the current routing information and location of hybrid device 105. In one embodiment, control network 150 may allow a law enforcement agency to access current routing information. In another embodiment, control network 150 may provide current routing information to the law enforcement agency. In yet another embodiment, control network 150 may provide location information associated with a 9-1-1 call to an emergency service using current routing information.
  • [0016]
    Control network 150 is coupled to routing preferences server 170 (hereinafter referred to as User-Notification Directed Routing or UNDR server). UNDR server 170 may employ, for example, a server-client architecture and/or device level programming through the use of TCP/IP and cellular signal processing methods to communicate with control network 150 and to route a wireless connection based on a user's routing preference. UNDR server 170 may store a user's preference setting in a database. In one embodiment, the user accesses UNDR server 170 through wireless base station 120 and computer network 140. Alternatively, the user may access UNDR server 170 through cellular base station 110 and cellular network 130. In another embodiment, the user accesses, enters, modifies, and/or saves user preferences into UNDR server 170 using a web-enabled device such as, for example, laptop computer 108. Laptop computer 108 may access UNDR 170 through a third wireless link 109 or through any other communications link. Alternatively, the user may access and/or enter its preferences stored at UNDR server 170 using hybrid device 105. UNDR server 170 may also configure IP routing and addressing based on default preferences so that the user has a default starting point when a preferred location is not available or is unreliable. It will be readily appreciated by one of ordinary skill in the art that deviations from this exemplary embodiment fall within the scope of the present invention.
  • [0017]
    Turning now to FIG. 2, a method for selecting routing preferences 200 stored in UNDR server 170 (of FIG. 1) embodying the present invention is depicted. In step 205, a user may access a set of basic data preferences. Exemplary basic data preferences 205 are shown in block 206, and may include one or more data access areas. A data access area may be selected by providing a physical address such as, for example, a street address and/or a zip code. In the non-limiting embodiment of block 206, a user's first data network preference indicates that the user would like to access data using free WiFi services first. The user's second data network preference indicates that a CDMA network connection should be attempted if the first preference is not fulfilled. The user's third preference is that any available WiFi network for a given rate should be used if the first and second preferences are not fulfilled. The user's fourth preference is that a GSM network should be accessed if the first, second, and third preferences cannot be fulfilled. Finally, the fifth preference is that the system provide a prompt indicating any available networks and requisition input from the user. Block 206 may also include a smart option, which is described in more detail below with respect to step 215.
  • [0018]
    In step 210, the user may access a set of network preferences. Exemplary network preferences 210 are shown in block 211, and may include a preferred cellular network provider, a computer network provider, roaming preferences, and hybrid device features. In the non-limiting embodiment of block 211, the user has indicated two preferred GSM data network providers. The user has also indicated that roaming to both no-charge and paid WiFi hotspots is allowed. Although, the user has not to selected any preferred CDMA data network providers, it has indicated two preferred VoIP providers. Hybrid device features may include handset type, Multimedia Message Service (MMS) capabilities, User-Plane Position Determining Entity (PDE) capabilities, and VoIP capabilities.
  • [0019]
    In step 215, the user may access a set of smart options or learning preferences. Exemplary smart options 215 are shown in block 216, and may include a learning activation option, a training period option, and a dynamic profile update option. In one exemplary embodiment, smart options 215 may allow UNDR server 170 to learn the user's habits (e.g., data, cellular, and/or VoIP connections with associated locations) so that it can optimize the user's preferences over a period of time. In another exemplary embodiment, UNDR 170 may identify access patterns. For instance, if a user frequently requests data services from a particular location, UNDR server 170 may dynamically adjust the user's routing preferences in order to minimize the costs of his or her data connections, depending upon which networks are available at that location. Additionally or alternatively, UNDER server 170 may adjust the user's routing preferences in order to maximize the reliability of services provided. In yet another exemplary embodiment, UNDR server 170 provides added services depending upon the user's location. Additionally, the hybrid network may provide enhanced 9-1-1 and CALEA services.
  • [0020]
    With respect to FIGS. 1 and 2, method 200 described above allows hybrid network 160 to route a network connection based upon the preferences stored in the UNDR server 170. Also, method 200 also allows the user to access either computer network 140 or cellular network 160 based on its routing preferences. Furthermore, method 200 allows the user to determine how it will access data or voice in future connections based upon its location and/or in reference to its routing preferences. It will be readily appreciated by one of ordinary skill in the art that deviations from this exemplary embodiment fall within the scope of the present invention. For example, each of the exemplary basic data preferences 206, network preferences 211, and learning preferences 216 may each include more or less options, and/or options other than those specifically described above. Moreover, steps 205, 210, and 215 may be grouped together in a single step containing all available options.
  • [0021]
    Turning now to FIG. 3, a call flow diagram embodying the present invention is depicted. Preferably, scenarios 305, 310, and/or 315 occur after the user has registered its preferences with the UNDR server 170 according to method 200 as described above. In a set-up procedure (not shown), hybrid device 105 may log into computer network 140 to download a basic profile information from UNDR server 170. In an alternative embodiment, hybrid device 150 accesses UNDR server 170 through the cellular network 160. Once registered, hybrid device 105 may poll UNDR server 170 to initiate a first data fix procedure. Once the first data fix procedure and a new updated location sensitive data is sent to the hybrid device 105, the user may then follow one of scenarios 305, 310, and/or 315.
  • [0022]
    A position request scenario 305 may be, for example, similar to a standard cellular registration flow known in the art. First, hybrid device 105 sends a registration request through any network available (130 or 140) based on a user profile that exists on device 105. Second, the network (130 or 140) passes the registration request through to the UNDR server 170, which queries the location entity of control network 150 for the location of hybrid device 105. Third, UNDR server 170 receives location information from the location entity of control network 150. Finally, UNDR server 170 may acknowledge receipt to hybrid device 105 and push any updates for local wireless to device 105 along with its optimal configuration and preset authentication and quality of service parameters. In an alternative embodiment, position request scenario 305 is configurable. Furthermore, UNDR server 170 may alter the registration dynamically based on user behavior.
  • [0023]
    In data-only session scenario 310, hybrid device 105 originates a data session directed to one of the available networks (130 or 140). In an alternative embodiment, hybrid device 105 originates a data session with access parameters presets. Subsequently, the network (130 or 140) accesses the user's computer or ISP network 140. Finally, hybrid device 105 receives access acknowledgment from computer or ISP network 140, and a data only session between hybrid device 105 and ISP network 140 is established.
  • [0024]
    In VoIP data session scenario 315, hybrid device 105 originates a VoIP data session directed to a network (130 or 140). In an alternative embodiment, hybrid device 105 originates a VoIP data session with access parameters presets. Then, the network (130 or 140) accesses the user's computer or ISP network 140, and hybrid device 105 receives access acknowledgment from the computer or ISP network 140. Finally, hybrid device 105 begins a VoIP session through a VoIP switch within control network 150.
  • [0025]
