Abstract

The aim of the invention is to provide a location-dependent execution of services of a mobile radio network for a mobile subscriber (TNR) who is checked into the network, e.g. location-dependent charging or routing/area-specific tasks. To this end, the service profile assigned to the subscriber is routinely updated when the subscriber changes location. Said service profile is updated with regard to the services which have already begun and which are used by the subscriber (TNR). The location information with regard to the actual location (A, B, C) of mobile subscribers is obtained from a positioning system (SAT) on the side of the mobile radio network, and is linked to a service plan which describes the location-dependency of the services. From this, actual service profiles are derived for the relevant subscribers. A message regarding the actual subscriber-specific service offer can be derived from the actual service profile of the subscriber (TNR), can be sent to the subscriber, and can be displayed on the side of the subscriber terminal.

description

Location-specific implementation of services of a mobile network ¬

The invention relates to a mobile radio network, in which for in the network mobile subscribers is booked location-based services according to a location-based service plan are available and which is adapted to link related by a Ortsbe- tuning system location information on the current mobile subscriber location with the services plan and therefrom derive current service profile for the subscriber in question which needed to carry out the services, contain current information.

The invention also relates to a device for managing a location-dependent services plan of a mobile radio network in which to be occupied in the network mobile subscriber location-based services according to the service plan is available, which is connected to a location determination system and adapted based on the location determining system location information on the current to link location of mobile subscribers with the service plan and th abzulei- current service profile for the subscriber in question from that necessary for the implementation of services', contains the latest information.

Similarly, the invention relates to a method for location-based implementation of services of a mobile network for logged onto in the network mobile subscribers, wherein the part of the cellular network location information on relative to the current mobile subscriber location from a location determining system and with a service plan that the location dependency of the , Describes services, and linked it to the relevant subscriber current service profiles that necessary for the implementation of services, contain current information is derived. In mobile networks, such as the known GSM network (GSM), are connected to switching facilities which serve the establishment and maintenance of calls between the subscribers of a network connected by means of base stations via an air interface telecommunication terminals. These devices allow a subscriber of a mobile network access to the network. Often also interfaces of a switching device to other systems, for example, another telecommunications network is established.

From the GSM network, it is furthermore known to use within a mobile network storage units in which each subscriber-specific data is stored on the network's services. One of these storage units implemented the so-called home location register (HLR, home .location register), which is generally at a pre-defined place and in which the registration of the participant zugrundelie- constricting data is stored. For the mobile subscriber and the related with it base station is a storage unit as a so-called Visitor Location Register (VLR, Business Cards ing location register) is provided, in which the subscriber and connection-specific data is stored and which is usually in a mobile switching node (MSC, mobile Switching Center) is realized. Depending on the location of the mobile subscriber, the memory unit for the visitor location register or the switching node changes.

This provides for a subscriber of a mobile network,

Ability to "roam", ie to move between cells, ie catchment areas of the base stations, possibly during a call. The change between the cells, as in the known example GSM N.etz guaranteed by here- for established protocols through which the subscriber data are exchanged for example between a subscriber permanently assigned home location register and the Besuchsregister- the current cell.

A mobile network can be supplemented by features of an intelligent network (IN). This means that for the participants of the mobile network additional services which are provided through the smart grid, usable. These services can be (all services of the mobile network you are using, standard and the operator-specific expression ds), for example, additional services such as call forwarding, to basic services as well as management-oriented services, such as a query accrued call charges of a participant builds on the basic services application services, eg a bank posting service where booking process and other banking transactions are carried out and recorded by phone, or even special tasks of services, including in particular the charging of a service. For the management and execution of network services in the intelligent network, a service control node is provided which is commonly referred to as SCP (service control point) is referred to, and in general is different from the switching equipment of the intelligent network. The realization of services that are based on the use of a position determination of mobile subscribers in the mobile network itself or in the intelligent network can take place.

It is also known to perform services of the mobile network, depending on the location of the subscriber. Examples of these are the charging of the subscriber connections because of site-dependent tariffs, or the control of the communication path upon connection. Here, the location of the mobile subscriber is determined at the time of the call. This site is based on post-connect, for the chosen location-dependent subscriber services; based on the user site, the service profile of the subscriber can use for the duration of the connection determined. In the mobile network, usually the service control node, data is stored to determine the service profile; this data along with the provision, according to which from the data of a service profile is derived is referred to within this disclosure as the service plan.

The positioning at connection setup is based on the cell information. Therefore, the accuracy of this information from the cell structure, that is, from the up distribution of mobile network coverage area in the individual catchment areas of the base stations, depending. When a change in the radio field, for example through a network expansion, or a conversion of individual base stations, thus the accuracy of the location information varies. Further, since the Standortbe- atmosphere takes place only during connection setup, a possible movement of the user during the active connection will not be detected and consequently can not be considered in the service execution.

Thus, in previous solutions for carrying out location-dependent services, the granularity and accuracy of the location determination by the cell size and -Geography the mobile radio network is determined. A flexible allocation of location-based services, in particular a flexible Tarifzuord- account when during the connection changing position is not possible; Instead, the service profile used and the tariff used is determined by the Erstposition.

The invention is therefore based on the object, to avoid-called limitations to a relocation of a mobile subscriber. Here, the accuracy of the localization of the cell design of the network should be independent further if possible.

This object is achieved on the basis of a mobile radio network of the type mentioned by means of a mobile radio network, which is according to the invention adapted at a location change of a subscriber which uses one or several ¬ re location-based services, which is associated with the subscriber service profile with respect to the used, already initiated services to update.

According to this solution, instead of a one-time transmission of the service profile to the beginning of the used by the subscriber service, now by an updateable diene the changed subscriber location steprofil the service accessible lent made. This allows the current location of a subscriber or to change the user site when performed during an existing connection to the service - to be considered - of course, to the extent necessary for the operation of the service of concern. Thus, a user can utilize as various location-based call rates reliably, agreed his mobile device to the network operator to use favorable terms in a spatially restricted home range, or use a location-dependent service coverage.

In a preferred embodiment of the invention of the mobile network of services plan relates to subscriber-specific services offered in addition to similarly offered for all subscriber services. This makes it possible for different subscribers different spatial dependencies, such as individual home or professionals with these respective associated services or service variants to define.

Advantageously, the service plan and the Dienstpro- can contain file information for location-based charging of services of the mobile network, so that the billing can be carried out starting from the actual location of the subscriber.

A particularly useful embodiment of the invention is characterized in that at least one of the services offered includes route or area-related tasks as well as the services plan and the service profiles, as they relate to these services include information for these services. By providing current location information, the realization route and area-related tasks is greatly simplified as a result of the invention.

In one useful because of their simplicity variant, the mobile network is adapted services depending on the customer premises at the beginning and end of the usage-the service to perform

Furthermore, the mobile network can be conveniently adapted from the current service profile of a subscriber in each case a message relating to derive the current subscriber-specific service offer and to send to the subscriber via a conversation or transaction compound.

Since it is often desirable for the participants here to be informed only a part of the service offer, the mobile network can be adapted by the

with requirements concerning receiving party via a cellular connection messages sent the required type and extent of service provision message and evaluate the effect to create the service offer message type and scope of subscriber-specific.

Particularly suitable application of the invention in the context of a GSM network should be mentioned.

It is furthermore suitable if the location information of a separate geographic positioning system such as a GPS system or a local sighting system is obtainable. It is thereby achieved that the accuracy of location determination of the cell structure of the mobile radio network is independent. The above object is also achieved by a device of the type mentioned, which is according to the invention adapted to update the assigned thereto service profile at a location change of a part ¬ transferee and a network node, wherein the performing a used by the subscriber already begun services controls to transmit.

The advantages of this solution are in addition to the above loading already shown that this device can conveniently serve as the interface between the location determining system and the control devices of the mobile network. This may particularly be the case of the use of an external location determination system of advantage where the device performs a processing and / or filtering of the location information provided by the location system for the purpose of location dependent services or of the network nodes.

Expedient embodiments of the invention go Vorrich- tung evident from claims 11 to 15; their advantages have already been discussed above in each case the appropriate place.

The above object is equally achieved starting from a method of the aforementioned type, wherein according to the invention at a location change of a subscriber which uses one or more location-dependent services, which is associated with the subscriber service profile services is updated with respect to the used already begun.

The advantages of this solution and its advantageous embodiments whose characteristics are recited in the claims 17 to 24, have been shown bilfunksystems based de.s Mo invention. The invention will be explained in the following with reference to an exemplary A usführungsbeispieles concerning a GSM network with location-dependent services ¬ stand, which is illustrated in the accompanying drawings. The figures show

Fig. 1 is a mobile subscriber that resides in different radio cells of the catchment area of ​​the network; as

Fig. 2 shows the essential components of the network in a schematic overview.

It is to be sent on at this point that the use of a GSM network is in the embodiment, no restriction; Rather, the mobile network in any embodiment of the invention can concerning the used in each case air interface standard, such as CDMA (network standard for the code-division multiplexing), UMTS (Universal Mobile Telecommunication syste), DECT (digital enhanced cordless telephone), formed be. is also a support of the mobile network by functions of intelligent net while zes for the realization of the invention advantageous but not necessary.

In Fig. 1, a mobile subscriber is shown TNR of the GSM network, which are proved on a road in the direction to another location as the time considered, for example, at location A, for instance in a car Also, a number of base stations BS1, BS2 , BS3 with the associated service areas or radio cells, which are shown in simplified form here circular. Where no Verwechlsung is feared will be distinguished in the following non-station between a base and its catchment area. The subscriber TNR is with A in the cell BS1, occurs when driving along the road AB for a waxed-sse time in addition to the catchment area BS3 one without leaving the first catchment area BS1, and finally transfer to on the radio cell BS2. The base station BS1 as shown in FIG. 2 is connected to the switching center of the GSM network MSI MFN. In contrast, the base stations BS2, BS3 to another intermediary are development station MS2 connected. The implementation of network services should be organized in the network MFN example in the manner of an intelligent network. Accordingly, a control station Services- SCP for the control and execution of network services is provided for managing services of the cellular network MFN; this is also furnished in the example considered, as a home location register of the mobile network MFN for storing the subscriber-specific data including current routing information. The network nodes MS1, MS2, SCP, including the yet to be treated location registers STR are networked in the mobile radio network MFN. The profile of the links, and connection paths in the network MFN, as far as shown, the invention is not of concern; for this reason they are as well as other switching nodes not shown in the drawing.

As mentioned above based Fig.l, the participants will cross several cells in his journey along the road AB. For the subscriber TNR connect'll constructed starting from the radio cell of the base station BS1 at A, for example, a simple telephone call to another subscriber or a connection to the use of a supplementary service of the network MFN. In the connecting structure of the switching station MSI, which is assigned to the base station BS1 is a known type of participants TNR in the visitor location register, carrying einge- and associated routing information centrally, for example in the service control station SCP stored. By its movement from A to B the subscriber TNR is now - possibly before the end of the conversation or the use of the service - leave the original radio cell BS1 and switch to another, namely in the cell BS2. Here, a so-called handover from one base station to another takes place. May be found in addition, a change in the cell BS3 and back to the first cell BΞ1 place. As an example of switching between the base stations BS1 and BS2 can be seen from Figure 2, the handover with a change of the switching station and the Besucherre- can gister be connected. However, the execution of the handover is well known in the art and the invention no longer relevant.

According to the invention, the current location of the sub- contractor TNR is now measured continuously. The location information is obtained from a location determining system OBS, the externally in the example shown, ie independently of the MFN network and is connected to the wireless network MFN via a specially arranged network node, the location register STR. The site register STR is used to manage the location data of the mobile subscriber and their associated service profiles. For this, it has obtained from the position determination system OBS location information concerning the mobile subscribers of the network MFN and updated to reflect this information and the also stored in the location register STR services plan, the service profiles.

The location register STR is implemented in the example shown as a separate network node. Its functions can JE but also, to the extent permitted by the network architecture of the mobile and intelligent network will be integrated into existing network nodes, such as a central office or a home location register of the mobile network. In particular, the functions of the location register STR could be taken over by the Dienstesteuer- station SCP.

These service profiles are made according to the requirements of the network MFN and realized it services from those data that are needed for the execution of services and may be able to change, for example due to changing system conditions such as the current time or network utilization, due to characteristics of the subscriber using or due to the user site. The service profiles k ö can e j on the design of the service in the SCP Services- control station or another network node, m which the service Expires, be stored, for example, the exchange MSI. So far, the subscriber location was determined at the start of a service and then remained firm; according to the invention, this data can now be amended in the course of a service. By updating the Dienstproflls the updated data available to the service on his next access to the service profile for disposal. This makes it possible to trim ortsabhangig different forms of usable by the subscriber TNR services including ortsab- hangiger tariff plans.

The m the drawing location determining system uses one or more OBS shown Funkpeilstationen FPL. Direction finding systems are known to those skilled m different Ausfuhrungsarten, for example by means of directional antennas, mterferometrischer bearing, etc., and are treated, for example in "direction finding technology" by Rudolf Grabau and Klaus Pfaff, Frankh, Stuttgart 1989th A representation of the art of so-called adaptive antennas can be found m λ Adaptιve antennas ", IEE Proc.-Commun. Vol. 1443, no. 5, October 1996. In the figure, an example of an antenna array to determine the transmitter of the subscriber deπchtung TNR shown.

Another possibility for location determination, the m of the drawing is merely indicated, is a GPS system (Global positionmg system '), wherein a known type of GPS satellites SAT emitted signals by the end Gerats the subscriber TNR or another receiving station at the current location of the subscriber are received TNR and a location is determined by using these signals. In current GPS method. are Positionsbestim- regulations with horizontal and vertical accuracy to within a few meters possible. The actual calculation of location coordinates, m may be made to the Endgerat or the headend of the subscriber TNR and are transmitted to the local ¬ b estimmungssystem OBS, wherein the transfer Mitt ¬ lung example, can take place via a separate transmission path or even a simple ¬, via the mobile radio network MFN. Also, the received signals at the location determining system OBS can be forwarded, where then carried out the evaluation and determination of the subscriber location.

If the topology of the radio cells is sufficient for localization of the user with the desired accuracy, the location information can also be obtained on the residence in the radio cells of the mobile network MFN. This can again be effected OBS its own location determination station to which the relied upon for determining the location of base stations BS1, BS2, BS3 of the network MFN directly (broken lines in Fig. 2), for example, are connected via network connections of the cellular network, or indirectly; the location determination can be an integrated into the network MFN function. The latter possibility is, for example, provided in the form of a so-called λ Location Feature ', for determining and making available to the current position of a terminal in a standardized format, for example, in geographical coordinates for the overall planning UMTS network (Universal Mobile Telecommunication System). The achievable accuracy is to be at least about 50 m, but may be dependent on the operating state of the terminal.

If the subscriber TNR a predetermined range, for example, an agreed with the network provider travel corridor along the road AB, does not leave during the connection agreed conditions, for example, a lower rate of Verbindungsvergebührung apply to this region, while outside the range of other conditions, for example the standard rate are valid. Depending area also certain te services can be expanded or restricted. Regions may be a fixed radius around the location of the subscriber C TNR or a composite art, such as a number of work stations, each with defined environments, as well, for example. By the use of an external location determination system OBS such areas can be defined cell topology of the network MFN independent of the radio. In particular ranges are possible, the cover as the residence C only a portion of a radio cell or projecting over the edge of a radio cell. Conveniently, an area is defined by geographical coordinates. The smallest unit in which an area can be defined, arises, as already indicated, from the used location determination process.

In addition, the subscriber TNR can be informed by the mobile radio network MFN of the currently available services including the currently valid rates. To this end, messages are sent from the network MFN to the terminal of the subscriber TNR, which contain information about the services offer; these messages are received by the terminal, analyzed and displayed to the participants, to the extent desired by this. In the simplest case, the message can only describe the location or the area in which the subscriber is currently located. The services offer will be subscriber-specific in general, so that the appropriate message must be created subscriber-specific. In addition, the service offer message may also advantageously be configured by the subscriber TNR nature and extent, for example by corresponding input on his terminal, which transmits a corresponding configuration message to the network MFN.

The signaling exchanged between the network MFN and the terminal of the subscriber TNR messages can expediently on a transaction connection, ie a connection made without discussion channel. Examples of these are in the GSM network as USSD (unstructured supplementary service data) or the so-called user to user signaling '. As a simplified variant, it is also possible to include only the subscriber premises at the beginning and at the completion of at or produced from the subscriber TNR connect to determine and take into account, for example, for charging. In this way the whole can covered by the participant

Route, regardless of the Wegverlaufs, be used for the service execution. In this case it is advantageous if the location register STR is configured to update the location of the subscriber only at the beginning and end of the usage-the service.

The invention can be applied for example for the realization of a location-dependent charging. For this purpose, in the service plan of the location register STR position, area or route dependent tariff models defined, which is then used for the site-specific preparation of the current charges profile.

Another application is a location-dependent service offering, including site-specific information, which is only in certain areas valid or useful, such as a weather report, a traffic announcement service or travel service od example for those looking for a place available. Like. Here are to name and security services, such as a rescue service.

Another significant area of ​​application is that of route-related services. An example of this is a pilot service in which the subscriber wishes to go to a specific target, such as by car, and can lead to this goal by means of pilotage. To this end, evaluates pilotage advantageously the current location information and determines a route proposal for the subscriber, eg "In the second intersection, turn left, turn. "Or" Take the BIO to Neustatt ". By evaluating the current location information of the subscriber TNR pilotage for example, is able to correct erroneously embarked paths of the subscriber or to guide the participants effective in the participants completely unknown areas.

A participant can be permanently assigned to a net position-dependent services, such as a location based billing as soon as the type of spatial dependence with the network operator has been agreed and until it is, if necessary renegotiated. but the service can be actively called from the subscriber, the subscriber specifies the nature and extent of the information sought. The latter is useful, for example for the mentioned pilotage.

The location-based services can by the network operator in general, so each logged-on in the network participants are placed in equally available, the

Services are each designed with reference to the current station position. You can however, be agreed between the user and the network operator each participant as an individual service for certain teilnehmerspezifi- see areas or routes.
