The present invention relates to a telecommunication device, in particular mobile telecommunication device, the telecommunication device for performing at least one predeterminable function suited to a processor for processing data, one connected to the processor data memory and an interface for supplying data to the processor and / or in the data store, is. Furthermore, the present invention provides a telecommunication network and a method of operating a telecommunication device concerns.

Telecommunications equipment of the type mentioned are known from practice. Here, mobile telecommunication devices with variable functions for example, are widespread. Specifically, these are for mobile phones, SMS pagers, personal digital Assistants - PDAs - that are multifunctional. These devices, in addition to its main task - for example, making a telecommunications link clear - often more essential foreign functions, such as photography and video recording, voice recording, radio reception, music playback, Musiksynthetisierung, video playback and satellite tracking.

For this purpose, the telecommunication devices to a processor for data processing, a data memory coupled to the processor and an interface for supplying data to the processor and / or in the data store. The additional functions exemplified above are firmly implemented in these devices. Other tasks or functions can no longer be perceived by those already developed or produced devices.

It is problematic that, for example, telecommunications network operators can not offer new services, if necessary, as the telecommunications equipment already on the market can not perceive these services or functions and new customized devices can be put on the market only after a long time usually. The present invention therefore has for its object, a telecommunications device, to provide a telecommunication network and a method of operating a telecommunication device, whereby a forward-safe operation with simple means has been reached.

According to the invention the above object is achieved by a telecommunication device having the features of claim 1. Thereafter, the processor and / or the data memory for execution and / or to learn at least one further or new function via the interface can be fed.

In the present invention, it was first recognized that the need for an update and for a future-proof design of the known telecommunication devices exist. In further accordance with the invention, it has been then recognized that an adaptation of existing telecommunications equipment for new functions in a simple manner can be realized that the processor and / or the data memory via the interface can be supplied to the execution and / or learning at least one other guarantee or new function. In this case, be used in a simple manner the already present in a conventional telecommunication device components such as a processor and a data memory. The inventive telecommunication device any tasks or functions can be learned later.

updating and adaptation to new features, functions and services of a telecommunications network operator and thus a future-proof operation is therefore achieved by simple means with the inventive telecommunications device.

With regard to a secure introduction of Datenzuführvorgangs and in terms of safe operation of the telecommunications device, the telecommunications device could include a command input device. Such a command input device could have an alphanumeric and / or numerical and / or special characters input field. Here comes a configuration as a keypad or a touch screen - touch screen - in question. Alternatively or additionally, the command input device could be a module for speech recognition of command inputs - Voice module - have.

To control transmitted from the command input device commands and with regard to a secure menu navigation, the telecommunications device could have a AnΣeigeeinrichtung. Such a display device could be an LED array, a liquid crystal line or a diode array have. Alternatively or additionally, the display means could include an LCD array or an LCD screen or a plasma screen or a similar visualization component.

With regard to a particularly secure delivery of data to the telecommunications device to the processor a ankoppelbarer to communicate with the processor co-processor could be assigned. In other words, the coprocessor may be coupled to the existing processor to ensure communication between the processors. In the same sense, the data memory could be allocated for the communication with the data memory ankoppelbarer auxiliary storage. In other words, the additional memory could be coupled to the existing data store to implement a memory expansion. Alternatively or additionally, the telecommunications device may have an expanded and / or expandable and / or additional operating system software. All last-mentioned embodiments bear seen for themselves and in combination with each other to realize a multi- tifunktionsfähigkeit the telecommunication device at. This allows the telecommunication device take over other functions besides its original use or function and perform.

To ensure a safe update of the telecommunications device the telecommunications device an operating system or at least part of an operating system via the interface could be supplied. Here could be implemented in the telecommunications device a suitable operating system from the beginning, which can support the additional general functions. Alternatively, an operating system can be re-implemented in another embodiment of the invention, the new operating system components can be added at any time that define the desired new features, configure, and support.

In a structurally particularly simple manner, the interface could be designed as a card slot or plug connection or USB interface. However, a configuration as a radio interface for particularly elegant transmission of data is possible. With such an interface or telecommunications interface the necessary data or the necessary information can be transmitted to perform new tasks and functions or implemented. The interface could be designed for removable computer storage media such as hardware memory, here memory chips or memory cards in the SIM or PCMCIA format or eligible in other formats. Here could be used with LeseVSchreibeinrichtungen general recording or slot facilities. Alternatively, a connector for a parallel or serial electronic data bus can be used is being thought here to the Hausantennen-, telephone jack, USB, or FireWire IIIE format. However, any other standards or formats could be used.

In view of, for example, performing a telephony function or a remote control function, the telecommunications device may have a second interface for receiving and / or for sending information. The second interface could work with infrared light or ultrasound or sound or electromagnetic radio waves.

As regards a particularly great versatility of the telecommunications device, the interface or the second interface may be configured as a transmitting and receiving part with programmable digital filters. This ensures that different transmission and reception methods may be performed universally programmable. So far, telecommunication devices are equipped with optionally up to four non-variable and fixed sent and received. In the inventive telecommunication device only intelligent programmable digital filters could be used in the construction of the transmission and reception components instead of resonant filters. This arbitrary sent and received can in principle by a programmable frequency synthesizing and reach a programmable control and programmable mixing or modulation of the oscillators so produced. Here, a universally programmable transmit and receive part of the telecommunications device can be realized. The transmit and receive part could then consist of the fully programmable universal hardware and the program-controlled operating software, at any time sought by the telecommunications device and pulled or - additionally or alternatively - on the request of the operator back to the relevant telecommunications equipment, for example via an information network or can be transferred directly. The telecommunication device can thus learn new sent and received.

The interface or the second interface may have a LeseVSchreibeinrichtung to realize a simple contact with a mobile data carrier. Such a disk could be formed by a memory card.

In a particularly advantageous embodiment, the interface and the second interface may be configured as a combined interface preferably integral. This would allow both the delivery of the update data and the realization of further telecommunications operations with virtually the same component - the combined interface - are realized.

Specifically, the telecommunications device could be designed as a mobile phone and / or as a remote control for remote controlled devices.

The above object is the according to claim 16 further achieved by a telecommunication network with at least one telecommunication device according to one of claims 1 to 15 °. Here could be composed exclusively of inventively designed telecommunications equipment such telecommunications network.

The above object is further achieved by a method of operating a telecommunications apparatus according to claim 17th In this case, the processor and / or the data memory for execution and / or to learn at least one further or new function via the interface are supplied.

In a particularly convenient way of supplying the data to a suitable command input by a user in the telecommunications device could occur. When a user wishes of the telecommunications device, a new function, he could load the new feature via a correspondingly available command input device and a corresponding instruction set. In a particularly simple manner feeding the data from a computer memory or a decorated in a telecommunication network servers in the telecommunications device could occur. Such a server could be integrated particularly easily into a remote-controlled device, so that the supply of data is done directly by a remotely controlled device.

A corresponding server could be operated commercially for realizing a profitable business by a service provider.

In any case, the feeding of data from a remotely controllable device in the telecommunication device could occur, and this could also be done without a corresponding server in said remotely controllable device. Rather, the supply could also take place from an installed in the remote-controlled device suitable data storage.

For additional understanding of the invention previously described in the following embodiments of the invention are explained.

Nowadays, many electronic devices and installations are controlled by remote control devices. this music stereos Examples which may be such as radio receivers, amplifiers, cassette recorders, compact disc players and magnetic tape recorders, televisions, picture projectors, switches, image / sound magnetic recording and playback devices such as VCRs and DVD players, door / gate opening systems, video surveillance systems , electricity / energy management systems and building management systems mentioned. Here, infrared light, ultrasound, acoustic or electromagnetic radio come to the physical signal transmission is used.

Each device or system manufacturer or supplier has as a rule its own, proprietary system. Both the physical signal transmission as well as the logical signal coding of control instructions and the communication protocols or control protocols peculiar to respective manufacturers and can only be applied to their own devices.

This creates the adverse situation that almost every device owner must use two or more different remote controls side by side and often at the same time when several of the different devices must be operated coupled together. Next, is detrimental to the device manufacturer that at any of its products or product groups always a remote control unit co-developed, mitgefertigt, mitvertrieben and must be kept as a spare. This increases the cost of equipment sales prices as a result and one of the most common user complaints concerns disturbances of these remote units. In addition, there is generally a customer dissatisfaction if this remote control units are different or difficult to use.

These existing problems can be easily solved in an inventive manner in that now a single and always operated in the same way remote control unit can be provided in the form of the telecommunication device according to the invention are available.

Today's modern mobile radio telecommunications equipment such as GSM phones, UMTS phones, GPRS mobile phones, wireless PDAs or similar mobile telecommunication devices usually have a command input device and a display device. In addition, they have an electronic or opto-electronic processor and a data memory. To simplify the following discussion, all such devices are representative called cell phones. In the inventive manner are supplied to the processor and / or the data memory for execution and / or to learn at least one further or new functions via an existing interface. It may be functions that are not known at the time of production of mobile phones or are not yet implemented.

The supply of the data can be done via a radio interface. In this case, an additional radio device or the main device radio of the mobile phone is usable. About this radio interface, the necessary operating system components and / or function drivers can be loaded into the phone. This information packets may be available through the interfaces of the mobile phone or through a computer which can be connected to an information network connection, such as an Internet connection. Alternatively, the mobile phones can directly with a data network connection, such as an Internet connection, are coupled via a cable modem or radio modem.

The mobile phones can comprise hardware interfaces to computers or servers, such as infrared ports or electromagnetic radio interfaces to, for example, the Bluetooth or WLL standard, or a cable connection or a cable modem or a wireless modem. Your particular operating system would still offering the necessary interface drivers and / or drivers browser can access that would have to be supplied to the data memory of the phone.

The phones could therefore have specific processors or additional co-processors, large enough memory or additional memory, modems and hardware interfaces and additional operating system software and additional function driver software. The additional operating software should be able to fulfill the following tasks. They could ensure that the definition, configuration and operation of new additional functions of mobile phones for all the different mobile phone models or cell types can be run in the same way.

Here, the desired uniform user instruction sets for the new features in the special or different instruction sets of mobile phones might be necessary for different mobile phones translations. Could continue settling the special or different output formats, or the display screens, such as fonts, line formats, image formats, the different handsets in uniform display formats or display screens for the new function operations be necessary excess. Furthermore, should the additional operating software function driver information network connection - may include or record - browser driver - and / or to transmit the necessary information from storage media - data read / ÜbertragungsprotokolIe.

With thus configured mobile devices, the new desired functions could be obtained as follows. Wants a mobile phone owners perform a new function, he chooses over the corresponding available command set to the command to load the new function. The mobile phone could then make contact with one offered storage medium in which all information about the necessary function recovery are included. This contact could be established with a selected storage medium or computer memory or over a data network to a server which has a memory area with such information.

This will be explained for the special deputy application example again. If a user, for example, wants to control his remote controlled devices with his cell phone, he selects the input field or using the voice command of the mobile phones the "remote control devices" and adds the device identification of the remotely controlled device. This can make the devices brand and relate to the type of device. Alternatively, it could also exploit the fact that it is possible already to make such remote-controlled devices that can turn independently record and communicate contact with the cell phone. So could such a remote-controlled device, such as at specific time intervals or after prompting for example, send via infrared signals or radio signals or their own audiovisual presentation by the mobile phone, its type identifier or display that can hold the phone or the operator accidentally or by specific request.

Proceeding necessary for the cell phone remote control information might be already stored in the remote-controlled device and the cell phone could be the gain of information by accessing this device memory. The mobile phone could then make contact with the accessible his location to look for the necessary information, such as the nature of the possible remote control technology such as ultrasound, infrared or radio control, the necessary driver software and any necessary operating system additions, and load it ,

Alternatively or additionally, the mobile phone could also make contact with an information network such as the Internet and there obtain the necessary information from a server. This server could be operated by a service provider commercially, for example, offering such information or holds. but the server could also be operated by a corresponding device manufacturers, who runs this as a downstream customer service. Ultimately, the server could also be a so-called "embedded" its Web server, ie an automatic device Klein server that is already installed for example those where appropriate similar remote-controlled devices. In this case, the mobile phone via an information network such as the Internet could the necessary remote control information directly from a optionally procure similar remote-controllable device that is already connected to the information network.

If the mobile phone has the necessary remote control information loaded, it could be in the context of execution of the function - Configure and even mimic the desired or selected devices remote control - in the present application example, as a remote control. The telecommunication device has failed to autonomously learn the function of the remote control.

the following second application example serves to further illustrate the teaching of the invention. Today, network operators new services or applications for mobile telecommunication devices want to introduce to improve their commercial income platform and enlarge. Such new services or applications can not be run with the existing mobile telecommunications devices, at least partially, for example because the harmful conditions such as radio signal transmission rates, radio frequencies quenzbandbreiten, radio frequency positions or systemic conditions such as radio network management and radio frequency management are immutable set and prevent it.

In order to allow certain new services and applications, new mobile telecommunication devices must be introduced or would even, if appropriate, completely new telecommunication network equipment with associated new possibly also mobile telecommunications devices for the operation to be purchased. This expensive Netzneuaufbau is still the Altnetzbetrieb contrary, since it binds network customers and necessary investment resources for long periods. A recent example of this problem is the imminent introduction of the UMTS mobile radio system to replace the existing GSM mobile radio system to enable new service offerings or applications.

The solution to this ever recurring problem lies in the novel possibility that the mobile telecommunications devices described here also to find the necessary operating systems, operating system supplements and functional drivers and recharge. To this end, telecommunications equipment to the invention as follows could be performed.

The transmitter and receiver is structurally designed so that it can perform various sent and received universally programmable. So far, telecommunication devices are equipped with optionally up to four non-changeable fixed sent and received. For this it is sufficient if only intelligent programmable digital filters are used in the construction of the transmission and reception components instead of resonant filters. Then any transmission and reception method could, in principle, by a programmable frequency synthesizing and can reach a programmable control and programmable mixing or modulation of the oscillators so produced. This could be a universally programmable transmit and receive part of the telecommunications device will realized. The transmitter and receiver could then consist of the fully programmable universal hardware and the program-controlled operating software that might at any time sought by the telecommunication device and loaded or on the request of the operator back to the relevant telecommunications equipment, for example, about to be transferred directly an information network or. The telecommunication equipment according to the invention could learn new sent and received.

Thus it might be possible, cost effective, mobile phones no longer required to install up to four fixed transmitting and receiving procedures and of the required special hardware. The mobile phone could in any telecommunications network independently learn to use there sent and received. When a mobile user wanting to register for example, into a new telecommunications network, it could provide only "to log into the network" command, which implicitly includes the search and charge the special sent and received.

By doing so, new features, new services and applications could be introduced requiring other harmful conditions or wireless network conditions. The new investment and the network customers detachment here could be avoided. For completeness, it should be mentioned here that a network system change could be applicable by an exclusive manipulation of the operating software of the mobile telecommunications equipment only in telecommunication networks, which can be composed solely of such devices as used for example in the so-called Mote- ran network become.

The novel of the invention described here is that it provides a phone which can load not only data for an already implemented function from a store or from an information network for the first time - for example, song or video title. Rather, the mobile phone first learns entirely new functions or function programs and then invites thereafter optionally further processing data such as music or image data from a memory or the information network in order to exercise these functions. By specifically described first embodiment manufacturers can remotely controllable devices more and more on the development and production of its own remote controls without, thereby achieving a cost reduction or device price cut. For the consumer, this would set a high level of acceptance of such unterschiedlichster remotely controllable devices over time, as they are all alike to operate and could be remotely controlled. The second embodiment described shows how the network operators could even adapt their network infrastructure by the invention of new applications down.
