Abstract

The invention relates to a method for detecting the position of a mobile radio terminal (1) logged into a mobile radiotelephone network (2, 3, 4) which allows detection of position data of a mobile radio terminal (1) for the transmission (18, 19, 20) of service data of a service to the mobile radio terminal (1) in a push process. According to the inventive method, service position data (11, 12) is saved by a switching center (3) of the mobile radiotelephone network, said data indicating for at least one service (21) which position (15) a mobile radio terminal (1) has to have (22, 23) so that the service data of said service (21) can be transmitted to the mobile radio terminal (1). When a mobile radio terminal (1) enters into contact with the mobile radiotelephone network (2), on the switching center (3) side of the mobile radiotelephone network, the mobile radio terminal position data (15) representing the position of the mobile radio terminal (1) is saved (24). When the mobile radio terminal position data (24) saved on the switching center (3) side and the service position data (11) coincide, a corresponding message (17) is transmitted to the service center (5).

Description


   <Desc / Clms Page number 1>
 



  Description "Location-based push services in mobile radio" The invention relates to methods and devices for detecting the position of a mobile radio terminal via a mobile radio network for a push service.



  From 3GPP-TS 23.271 it is known to position data of a mobile terminal user of a cellular mobile radio network for location-dependent services (= Location Services = LCS) such. B.



  Find the nearest restaurant etc.



  These services have so far been carried out using a pull method (method which only transmits information when explicitly requested by the mobile station or the service center first requests the required location information from the network and then delivers the location-related information). Service data of a service (such as advertising for the nearest petrol station or the nearest restaurant) are only transmitted to the mobile radio subscriber from the mobile radio network on request by his mobile radio terminal in a mobile radio network. Services can be adapted to the wishes of a mobile radio subscriber (user profile) and / or mobile radio subscribers or their mobile radio terminals can only be offered if there is user authorization and / or subscription for this service and subscriber.

   At the request of a terminal or a service center, a position server compares the current mobile radio terminal position data and the local area in which a terminal service data of a service is to be transmitted. A position server compares a server for location-dependent services with a positive comparison result.



  The object of the present invention is to determine the position of a mobile radio terminal via a mobile radio network

 <Desc / Clms Page number 2>

 To enable the location-dependent transmission of service data of a location-dependent service to be made more efficient using the push method. The object is achieved in each case by the subject matter of the independent claims.



  The invention simplifies the detection of mobile radio terminal positions for location-dependent services using the push method, since a comparison of mobile radio terminal position data (representing the positions of a mobile radio terminal) and (representing the area in which service data of a service are to be transmitted to mobile radio terminals) ) Service position data in a computer on the part of a switching center can be carried out easily and automatically in the switching center with one or each contact of a mobile radio terminal with the mobile radio network (in the case of voice telephony and / or location update or SMS / MMS / other text transmission etc.) ,

   A network load is thus eliminated by transmitting position data present in a switching center back to a previously common central position server of a mobile radio network and to the respective switching center, and the associated effort, network load and delay are thus eliminated. Data specifying the services for which a mobile station (or its MSISDN or IMSI) is subscribed and / or authorized can, for example, when a mobile station is logged into a local area of a mobile radio network (and thus logged into the network for a switching MSC / VLR, SGSN / VLR etc) can be uploaded to this exchange from a home location register HLR.

   Service position data, which indicate for which mobile radio terminal positions of mobile radio terminals these service terminals are to be transmitted, can be sent to a switching center from a service center or an HLR (for example, at larger intervals) from a service center (or alternatively from an HLR ) can be downloaded.

 <Desc / Clms Page number 3>

 



  Further features and advantages of the invention will become apparent from the claims and the following description of an embodiment with reference to the drawing. 1 schematically shows a position detection according to the invention for location-dependent services using the push method.



  1 shows a mobile radio terminal 1 (with a subscriber identification card with a subscriber number MSISDN +491721234567890), which connects to a mobile radio network 2 via an air interface (14, 20) and transceiver devices RAN / BSS 2 and a switching center 3 (SGSN / MSC etc.) , 3, 4,5 is logged in and can communicate via this (voice telephony, SMS / MMS / other text transmission, etc.).

   A service center 5 would like in the context of services (service 1, service 2, etc.) in each case on mobile radio terminals which are located in areas represented by service position data (cell IDs or geographic areas) (depending on or independent of a booking of the services by mobile stations and / or authorizations of mobile stations for receiving the service data of the services) transmit service data 18 (such as information / advertising relating to the nearest restaurant and the nearest petrol station).



  The comparison of (representing the current position of a mobile radio terminal) mobile radio terminal position data (identity of the currently visited cell or cell group or position in the form of length and width, etc.) of a mobile radio terminal with the position range specified in each case by service position data for a service (in which at a mobile station service data of the service are to be transmitted in push mode without request by the mobile station), should be carried out by the switching center 3 or by a point assigned to the switching center 3 (external comparison device).

   The service position data 11, 12 required for this purpose, which indicate for which service (service 1, service 2) at mobile stations in which local area (indicated by cell ID of cells or cell

 <Desc / Clms Page number 4>

 groups or by local longitude and latitude or details of cities etc.) service data are to be transmitted, the switching center 3 can be from a service center 5 of one or more mobile radio networks, from home registers (for example at longer intervals or in the event of a change) or by administration (on site or received by remote control).

   Subscription data 8.9, which indicate which services (service 1, service 2) a mobile station (for example mobile station 1 with the MSISDN +49172123467890) has booked and / or for which it is authorized, are sent to a contact 14 (login, telephoning) , Location update, text transmission, etc.) of the mobile radio terminal 1 with the mobile radio network 2, 3 (which leads to the switching center 3 or the visitor registry VLR regularly assigned to it becoming aware that a mobile radio terminal with an identity MSISDN is in the area of the switching center 3 downloaded) to enable checking in a switching center SGSN / MSC 3 of the mobile radio terminal 1 (10).



  A comparison device 16 of the switching center SGSN / MSC 3 compares, when contact 14 of a mobile radio terminal 1 with the mobile radio network, as to whether the mobile radio terminal position data (Cell-ID 1 etc.), with regard to the current position of the mobile radio terminal 1, with the desired distribution area for services representing service position data 11, 12 (eg for service 1, cell ID 1, among others) match.



  If this is the case, a relevant notification 17 (including, for example, MSISDN and service and possibly position) 17 can be sent to a service center 5, which thereupon provides service data (advertising for a restaurant, etc.) of a service (service 1, etc.) for the Mobile radio terminal 1 (with MSISDN +491721234567890) sends (18) to the switching center 3, which it sends to a radio interface RAN / BSS 2 (19) for further transmission (20) to the respective mobile radio terminal 1. Instead of the further transmission 18 of the service data A switching center 3 can also use the (indirect) route via another switching center, such as

 <Desc / Clms Page number 5>

 for example, a Short Message Service Center (SMSC) can be used.

   In the present example, before a notification (17) to a service center 5 about the correspondence between mobile radio terminal position data and service position data, the comparison device 16 also checks on the basis of stored subscription data 13 (which was downloaded from the HLR 4) whether the mobile radio terminal 1 is for the service, in whose local area it is subscribed to and / or authorized, notification 17 only taking place if this is the case, whereupon the service center may (5) send service data to a terminal (1) (18).



  As an alternative to the method specified above, the switching center can carry out a position determination before notifying (17) the service center in order to increase the accuracy of the mobile terminal position data (against the accuracy of position data in the form of a cell ID 20). This (more precise additional) position determination can take place, for example, according to the specification 3GPP TS 23.271. The service center can be informed of the more precise position obtained by the additional position determination in the notification 18.
