The technical field to which the invention relates

The present invention generally relates to wireless networks, wireless communications devices participating in such networks, and the operation of the above-mentioned equipment. In more detail, the invention relates to a new method for base stations to send messages to the call alert/broadcast to wireless communications devices and, accordingly, more efficient methods for such devices for receiving messages, the call alert/broadcast.

The level of technology

Developers of mobile phones are faced with many different technical problems. One of the most difficult problems is the need to use batteries to power the transceiver, speaker, microphone, phone and other electronic equipment. The battery can only provide a finite amount of energy until you are discharged, and at this time, the phone stops working. Of course, most mobile phone batteries are rechargeable, but this requires access to a power source.

Remembering about this vulnerability, the developers of mobile phones designed their products with different States of low energy consumption. In the absence of any incoming or outgoing call is whether in the long periods of inactivity when information call mobile phone is usually located in the "inactive" state. Sometimes some phones are "sleeping" state, in which the phone is selectively disables schema, such as a transceiver, CPU and some other hardware. At this stage the phone almost does not consume any current. At periodic intervals that are pre-installed network, the phone wakes up for a short period of time mainly to receive messages alerting call (if they exist) from the base station, a notification about incoming phone calls, and additionally for other reasons, such as the search for pilot signals from neighboring base stations, etc. When a mobile phone is not able to successfully perform communication with any base stations within a certain period of time, the phone enters into a state of "deep sleep, during which the phone is searching for service at very infrequent intervals and meanwhile reduces the power consumption to another more.

The above-described operating States make a significant contribution to energy saving battery. And in some respects this level of technology is completely satisfactory. However, the engineers of the Corporation Qualcomm (QUALCOMM) are constantly looking for new ways to reduce power consumption of mobile phones. Engineers QUALCOMM also concerned about the introduction of new functionality to the mobile phone is on without sacrificing any of the previous achievements in reducing energy consumption of a mobile phone. In this regard, one area of possible focus affects the proposed future network delivery of broadcast content to mobile phones. In the industry expect that the actual delivery of broadcast programs on the mobile phones will be preceded by message alert broadcasting, which informs the user of the mobile phone that the broadcast program is available.

Accordingly, in order to take this additional message alerts, idle mobile phones will need to extend their existing Wake-up sequence, or, in the worst case, to participate in the optional sequence awakening. In any case, the mobile phones will have to consume more energy to take an incremental message alert broadcast. As explained above, engineers tend to minimize the power consumption of your mobile phone. Therefore, some problems are presented to the future demand for mobile phones to receive messages alert broadcasting in addition to the existing message notification call.

The INVENTION

Wireless communications network responds to each incoming call placed to the device touchpad the water connection, transmitting the message alert call in the appropriate section of the frame (frame) digital radio in the specified format. In response to each occurrence of the event broadcast network transmits a duplicate message alert broadcast announcing the availability of broadcast content from the network. Message alert broadcast is transmitted multiple times within each frame of digital radio.

Another sequence describes the operation of the wireless communication devices (WCD) in this network. In response to the Wake from a sleep state, the wireless communication device (WCD) determines the quality of the received signal. The wireless communication device (WCD) also accepts a network message sending a call alert and a limited number of copies (at least one) a duplicate of the transmitted network message alert broadcast that occurs multiple times for each scheduled transmission message alert call. This quantity varies inversely as a specific signal quality.

HARDWARE COMPONENTS AND RELATIONSHIPS

Introduction

The present disclosure uses a wireless network with different base stations and a wireless communication device (WCD), among other components. The base station transmits messages in the call alert, notifying the wireless communication device (WCD) of incoming voice/information calls. The base station also transmits messages alert broadcast notifying the wireless communication devices (WCD) of broadcast programs that are available to the wireless communication device (WCD) for the power, that is, the broadcast information contents on demand. The base station transmits messages in the call alert/broadcast thus (discussed below)to facilitate the effective power consumption of the receiving wireless communication device (WCD). Accordingly, wireless communication devices (WCD) is programmed to use these opportunities to take the message of the call alert/broadcast, consuming minimal power.

Below are further details on the overall design and operation of this system and its various components.

Network wireless

Figa shows a very simplified model of an illustrative wireless communication network 120. In one embodiment, the network 120 may be implemented as a network-type IS-95 telecommunications industry Association (Telecommunications Industry Association, TIA). This type of network, for example, a convenient wireless communication device (WCD) for reception of voice calls, and send/receive e-mail, Internet and other digital currency data.

The network 120 includes various devices 134 wireless (WCD), which in this particular illustration include cordless phones, compatible with multiple access, code sec the population of channels (CDMA). Wireless communication devices (WCD) can also be called mobile stations, access terminals, terminals, subscriber, user equipment (UE) and other names. Device 134 wireless (WCD) served by different base stations 130, sharing content, voice and/or packet data with devices 134 wireless (WCD).

Phone calls and sending other voice messages are produced by the exchange of data between devices 134 wireless (WCD) and base stations 130 through the channels of electromagnetic signals in the range of radio frequencies (RF). The base station may also communicate other types of devices 134 wireless (WCD), such as message alert call, message creation, message reception, a report on the pilot signals and other digital data. In addition, the digital content is performed by exchanging packet data Internet Protocol (IP) addresses between devices 134 wireless (WCD) and base stations 130 to communicate with the Internet 121, or other packet data. Application packet data can be performed directly on the device 134 wireless (WCD) or can be run on a separate computer device that ispolzuyutsya 134 wireless (WCD) 134 as a wireless modem.

Some or all of the base stations 130 may be implemented using hardware, for example, used traditional base stations in commercial use at the present time. Each base station 130 is connected to the controller 126 of the base station (BSC), which controls the two-way flow of information between the base stations 130 and various network equipment 124 (described below). The controller 126 of the base station (BSC) perform various functions that allow you to be mobile communications, including managing call forwarding device 134 wireless (WCD) between base stations. The controller 126 of the base station (BSC) may also contain the function module package management (PCF) for exchanging data packets are Internet Protocol (IP) base stations 130. Each controller 126 of the base station (BSC) may be implemented using hardware, such as the traditional wireless networks in commercial use at the present time.

For use in processing voice calls and other related data network equipment 124 may include components such as a switching center for mobile communications (MSC), a switching station of a mobile phone (MTSO), etc. Component switching center mobile communications (MSC), is for example, transmitting the voice information flow between controllers 126 base station (BSC) and the public switched telephone network 125 (PSTN). The switching center mobile communications (MSC) also works to ensure mobility management, call processing and functionality of the routing of the call.

For use in processing digital data, not associated with voice calls, network equipment 124 may include components such as one or more internal (domestic) and external (guest) agents. In this context, network equipment 124 communicates the Internet Protocol (IP) between controllers 126 base station (BSC) and one or more internal agents 122 through one or more lines 123 communication, such as wireless or wire line T1 or T3, fiber optic connections, Ethernet (Ethernet) or other compounds of the Internet Protocol (IP). Internal agent 122 in turn is connected to the Internet 121.

The source 112 power includes electric battery, the source of solar energy, the source of biological energy, the winding handle or other portable power source. The timer 115 may contain a hardware timer, program timer or other suitable timer. One particularly effective power consumption is an example of the timer 115 is a hardware timer, such as scheme, which provides a hardware interrupt signal to the device 102 management. Alternatively, you can use software, embedded software or other structures of the timer. The memory 117 may include a hardware structure (for example, the scheme volatile or non-volatile memory, magnetic memory, etc) or software design (e.g., register, byte, address or other memory module).

In addition, the wireless communication device (WCD) outstanging any device data which communicates through a wireless channel or through a wired channel, for example using fiber optic or coaxial cables. In addition to wireless or wired phones (or instead of) the wireless communication device (WCD) may be configured to implement various other devices, including, but without limitation, PC card, flash memory card, external or internal modem, etc.

An illustrative device for processing digital data

Various designs can be used to implement object data on figa-1B. One example is a device for processing digital data, which illustrates the device 200 in figure 2.

The device 200 includes a processor 202, such as a microprocessor, personal computer, workstation, controller, microcontroller, state machine or other processing machine, coupled to the memory 204. In this example, the memory 204 includes memory 206 with quick access, as well as non-volatile memory 208. The memory 206 with quick access may include random access memory (RAM) and can be used to store software instructions executed by processor 202. Non-volatile memory 208 may include, for example, random access memory device with redundant power, e is chicheste erasable programmable permanent memory (EEPROM), programmable permanent memory (EPROM), one or more magnetic storage drives such as hard drive, tape drive or any other suitable storage device. The device 200 also includes input / output 210, such as a line, bus, cable, electromagnetic link, channel, interface or other means for the processor 202 to communicate with other hardware that is external to the device 200.

Despite the specific foregoing description, specialists in the art (having the benefit of this disclosure) will recognize that discussed above, the device may be implemented in another machine design without straying from the scope of the invention. As a specific example, one of the components 206, 208 may be eliminated; furthermore, the memory 204, 206 and/or 208 may be embedded in the processor 202, or even be provided external to the device 200.

Logical diagram

In contrast to device processing digital data, discussed above, another variant implementation of the invention uses logic instead of the CPU teams to implement some or all of the various processing objects mentioned above. Depending on the specific requirements of application in the areas of speed is, cost, cost of tools and the like, this logic can be implemented by creating application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC)having thousands of small-sized integrated transistors. Such application-specific integrated circuits can be implemented using complementary metal oxide semiconductors (CMOS, CMOS), transistor-transistor logic (TTL, TTL), very large scale integration (VLSI, VLSI) or other suitable structure. Other alternatives include chip digital signal processing (DSP), discrete scheme (e.g., resistors, capacitors, diodes, inductors and transistors), programmable gate array (FPGA), programmable logic array (PLA), programmable logic device (PLD), etc.

WORK

After describing the various design features now describe some operational aspects of the present disclosure.

The carrier signal

Wherever any functionality to the existing disclosure are implemented using one or more executable by the machine program sequences, such sequences may be embodied in various forms of media signal. In the context of figure 2, such a carrier signal may include, for example, the memory 204 or the other n is Khabibullina signal, such as shifting product 300 storage (figure 3), directly or indirectly accessible to the processor 202. Is there any command in the memory 206, the carrier 300 or elsewhere, they can be stored in various computer-readable media storing data. Some examples include memory with direct access (for example, a traditional hard drive, disk array (RAID) or other storage device for direct access ("DASD")), memory, sequential access, such as magnetic or optical tape, electronic non-volatile memory (e.g., permanent memory (ROM), erasable programmable permanent memory (EPROM), flash memory or electrically erasable programmable permanent memory (EEPROM), a random access memory device with redundant power, optical memory (e.g., compact disc, read-only (CD-ROM), compact disk-write once, read once, read many (WORM), digital drive General purpose (DVD), digital optical tape), paper punch cards, or other suitable media signal, including analog or digital media and analog and communication links and wireless links. In the illustrative embodiment of the invention the computer-readable commands can contain programs the first object code, compiled programming language, such as assembler, C, etc.

Logical diagram

Unlike the carrier signal, discussed above, some or all of the functionality of the present disclosure may be implemented using logic instead of using a processor to execute commands. Therefore, this logic circuitry configured to perform operations to implement some or all aspects of the method of this disclosure. The logic circuitry may be implemented using many different types of circuits, as discussed above.

Introduction to operating details

As mentioned above, the operational aspect of this disclosure provides a new methodology for network messaging alerts to wireless communication device (WCD) (figure 4). Another, but related technique, therefore, relates to a more efficient energy saving sequence for a wireless communication device (WCD) to receive message alerts (figure 5).

Terminology is an explanation diagram of the signal

To better understand figure 4-5, first explained chart 600 of the signal (6). In General and as described in more detail below, the standard broadband multiple access code division multiplexing (WCDMA) (release 99) organization is the standardization of communications 3rd generation (3GPP) prescribes, each base station sends messages to the call alert to their various wireless communication device (WCD) within carefully defined interval, which can last from 80 milliseconds to 5,12 seconds. This interval, called here "interval alerts, illustrated position 602 in relation to the indicative ("question") to the base station. "Call alert", which is used here, refers to the alerts for incoming voice (or data) calls and alerts to indicate upcoming initialized network activity data, which follows an extended period of inactivity data, when the wireless communication device (WCD) "connected" to the wireless network packet data.

These alerts are sent as multiple radio frames". Frames of digital communication known multiple access code division multiple access (CDMA) and other relevant disciplines, and many such examples of such frames are discussed in numerous U.S. patents, owned by QUALCOMM. In one example of the present disclosure, each radio frame is ten milliseconds. Interval 602 alert includes frames 604, 605 radio and other 607 (remasshtabirovanie). Other radio frames 607 interval 602 n is shown in the interests of concise explanations. Each radio frame is further divided into segments, called here "sections". For example, the different sections of the frame 610 604 radio.

Each individual section 610 is reserved for the considered base station to send the message alert call to a separate group of one or more respective wireless communication device (WCD)that are assigned to that specific section. Link 616 shows the message alert call associated with section 650 and a device (devices) wireless (WCD).

In one example, the message alert call are binary, and one binary value indicates that the notified one or more wireless communication device (WCD), assigned to the message alert call, and another binary value indicates that no device is notified. A binary zero, for example, you can replace the null pointer or absence of the signal. The network transmits detailed information about each incoming call in a separate service message or channel. This information is available to the wireless communication device (WCD)to learn more about their incoming calls and even to decide what the wireless communication device (WCD) receives the call, if multiple wireless communication device (WCD) are assigned to the same section.

As is redstavlena the present disclosure, interval 602 alert contains at most one message alert call for each individual wireless communication devices (WCD). In other words, each wireless communication device (WCD) can only take your message alert call in one of the assigned sections 610. However, for each message, the call alert wireless communication devices (WCD) there are several instances of a recurring message alert broadcast. As discussed in more detailed example, multiple instances of message alert broadcast can occur in each radio frame.

In the illustrated example, the link 618 shows a repeating message alert broadcasting, which occurs repeatedly in the frame 604 radio; however, in the frame 604 radio has only a single message alert call each wireless communication devices (WCD) (for example, the link 616 for a wireless communication device (WCD) section 650). In the illustrated example, the message 618 alert broadcasting occurs in sections 651, 652, and 653. Illustrated relationships between messages the call alert/broadcast ensures that the period of time between each message alert call (e.g., 616) and the closest message (618) alert broadcasting is e may exceed the specified maximum period of time. This new feature is used to help the wireless communication device (WCD) to save energy, as discussed in more detail below.

In the illustrated example, the message 618 alert broadcasting refers to a single set of broadcast programs, or services. Randomly, you can provide a different message 619 alert broadcast related to a different set of broadcast programs. For example, one message alert broadcasting may provide programs of CNN and MSNBC, while another message alert broadcast is a broadcast content channel ESPN. Copies of the messages 619 alert broadcasts occur in sections 654, 655 and 656 of the frame 604 radio. As shown, the message 618, 619 alert broadcasting alternate. For a message 618 alert broadcasting illustrated the relationship between message 616 the call alert and message 619 alert broadcasting minimal guarantee that the time between the alert message about the call and the closest message alert broadcasting may not exceed a specified maximum period of time.

Work - network message transfer the call alert/broadcast

Figure 4 depicts some network operations 400 having the relationship is with the present disclosure. Without intentional restriction, the operation 400 is illustrated in the specific context of hardware figa-1B. As illustrated, the operations 400 are performed independently of each base station 130. The following description relates to the operations 400 that is performed as a single exponential ("question") base station. However, without deviation from the scope of the present disclosure certain tasks in the sequence 400 may actually be carried out hierarchically upstream components of the network 120 with the transfer of the results of the base stations in the form of status updates or commands. It can centralize certain actions, avoiding the need to duplicate the same steps in all base stations.

At step 402 the considered base station 130 determines whether the proper incoming voice/information call. The incoming call is appropriate, if it is directed to a wireless communication device (WCD), which (1) is in conjunction with this base station, (2) is in the scope of the base station, (3) determines the considered base station as "primary" or (4) has a more defined relationship with the base station. One example of step 402 contains a "pulling" of information, in which the base station makes a request to other components of the network 120 to the distribution, are there any incoming calls to the wireless communication device (WCD)that are related to the base station. In another example, step 402 is "pushing" information, in which the base station receives a notification whenever there is any incoming calls to the relevant wireless communication device (WCD). Step 402 is repeated continuously, periodically, or according to other appropriate schedule, as shown by reference 402a. Accordingly, step 402 may be performed in parallel with the subsequent stage 404 and forth.

At step 404 the considered base station 130 determines whether there was a "event broadcasting". Event broadcasting contains assigned by the network to notify the wireless communication devices (WCD) about a specific broadcast program. For example, event broadcasting occurs when new informational content of the broadcast is available, for example, the receipt of news articles, sports header or music video. Event broadcasting can also occur when the network authorizes the second, third, or other re-notification of the information content of broadcasting. In the example of "pull" stage 404 contains the active request the base station to other components in the network 120 to determine the Dol is us whether wireless communication devices (WCD) to be initially notified (or re-notified) of any particular broadcast programs. In the example of "pushing" stage 404 is a passive operation of the base station, receiving a notification message whenever the network announces plans or otherwise establishes an event broadcast. Step 404 is repeated continuously, periodically, or according to other appropriate schedule, as shown by reference 404a. Accordingly, step 404 can be performed in parallel with the subsequent stages 406 and later.

Step 408 starts a new interval alerts. In General terms, and as described in more detail below, each base station sends the message alert call their wireless communication device (WCD) in the interval alerts. According to the standard broadband multiple access code division multiplexing (WCDMA) (release 99) organization for standardization 3rd generation (3GPP) interval alerts can last from 80 milliseconds to 5,12 seconds. Since the communication multiple access code division multiple access (CDMA) is in the format of radio frames, the interval alerts actually takes a lot of radio frames. Each radio frame in one example takes ten milliseconds. Accordingly, the step 408 illustrates the beginning of this interval alerts. Depending on the method of implementation of a network of various wireless communication device (WCD) can the be assigned different intervals alerts. For example, the wireless communication device (WCD), which should refer to the initiated network services with low latency, can be assigned a short interval alerts, while the wireless communication device (WCD), the receiving voice prompts can be assigned to a much longer interval alerts.

As discussed above in connection with Fig.6, each radio frame is divided into several segments, referred to here as "sections". As one illustrative example, the system may use section 144 on the frame of the radio. Each section can carry one message alert call, which is applicable to one or more wireless communication device (WCD), as pre-planned network, carrier, etc. So each wireless communication device (WCD) assigned to a given partition of a given radio frame, in order for him to accept his message alert call, if any.

In addition to the operations of the call alert, as discussed above, the base station transmits a duplicate message alert broadcast during interval alerts. Multiple instances of the same message alert broadcast is repeated over the entire interval alerts to ensure that all wireless devices the Oh communication (WCD), regardless of their assigned radio frame. In addition, as explained below, the message alert broadcast is repeated many times within each radio frame, to minimize the time between the section in which the message alert call this wireless communication devices (WCD), and the closest prior or subsequent message alert broadcast. In addition, as discussed above, there may be different messages alert broadcasting related to different sets of content broadcasts, though the present example is limited to one repeated message alert broadcasts for ease of explanation.

Step 414 retransmit the message alert broadcast. As discussed below, the base station sends identical copies of the message alert broadcast over the entire interval alerts. Message alert broadcasting and message alert call in one example, can be transmitted on the same frequency band using different codes division channels. In one example, the alert message on the broadcast contains bits or other reduced signal only indicates to the wireless communication device (WCD) in the range of whether the informational content of the Shirokov is Denmark, and additional information are available separately in the transmitted message. For example, bit alert broadcasting with a value of "unit" means that the new content of the broadcast is available, while a bit alert broadcasting with a value of zero means that there is no new content broadcasting.

As an example, the message alert broadcasting can be broadcasted two, three or more times per frame radio, to minimize the time between the message alert broadcasting and various message alert call occurring in the same radio frame. In other words, this limits the length of time between any given message alert call and the next message alert broadcast, the previous or next message alert call to a specified maximum. For example, if the message alert broadcasting broadcasted twice during each 10 millisecond radio frame, this ensures that the time between any given message alert call and the next message alert broadcasting may not exceed 2.5 milliseconds. This time can be even more reduced by repeating the message alert broadcasting is ri, four or more times per frame radio.

In addition, theoretically, the message alert broadcast can be transmitted within each section; however, stretching the messages in time gives other news alert broadcasting (related to another information content broadcast) an equal opportunity to notify the wireless communication devices (WCD) of the base station during the intermediate intervals. In a simplified example, in which there are two different messages alert broadcast, the network broadcasts one of them in sections 5, 10, 15, 20, etc. of the radio frame. Another message broadcast in sections 6, 11, 16, 21, etc. of the radio frame.

Also theoretically, the base station may restrict the transmission of messages alert broadcast to those sections that are assigned to wireless communication device (WCD)that have interest in this particular informational content of the broadcast. However, depending on the network architecture, attitudes and understandings about subscribing to the broadcast network may not be aware of subscriptions to broadcast individual wireless communication device (WCD). In addition, two wireless communication devices (WCD)that share the same partition, could not be easily satisfied, e is whether they are signed on different broadcast packets.

Anyway, ensuring proximity in time between messages alert broadcasting and the call alert helps wireless communication device (WCD) to save energy, quickly resuming sleep if message alert call and alert broadcasting both are negative.

After step 414 step 416 pays attention to the first radio frame of the current frame. Here, the base station transmits the message alert call for all wireless communication device (WCD)assigned to the radio frame (step 418). Each message alert call occurs in a different section of the considered frame of the radio. In the illustrated example, the message alert call contain bits or other reduced signal only indicates to the wireless communication device (WCD) within the range of that for them are available, the informational content of the broadcast and additional information are available separately in the transmitted message. For example, bit a call alert with the value "unit" means that the incoming call is for some or all of the wireless communication device (WCD), assigned to the current radio frame, while a bit of a call alert with the value "zero" means that there is no incoming call to the device is wireless connection (WCD), assigned to this frame.

Then step 420 is asking completed whether the base station all the radio frames for the current interval alerts. Otherwise, step 422 moves to the next radio frame, and the base station then transmits the message alert call to the wireless communication device (WCD)assigned to the radio frame (step 418).

When all of the radio frames is completed (step 420), the base station has finished sending message alert call for the current interval. Accordingly, the base station terminates transmission of a message alert broadcasting (step 424), and the current interval ends. A new interval begins later, when the stage 424 returns to step 408, which occurs on a set schedule. For increased reliability, message alert broadcasting base station can retransmit the message alert broadcast not only on several radio frames, but also on several intervals alert.

Work - wireless communication

Figure 5 depicts the operation 500 of the wireless communication devices (WCD), related to the reception of the message alert broadcasting and the call alert. Without intentional restriction of the operation 500 is illustrated in the specific context of hardware with which edst figa, 1B and 4. As illustrated, the operations 500 are performed independently by each wireless communication device (WCD). The following description relates to the operations 500, as being considered by the wireless communication device (WCD).

At step 502, the wireless communication device (WCD) is awakened from a sleep state. As a result, the device 102 control exits low power mode in response to the regularly scheduled hardware interrupt caused by timer 115, which is planned in accordance with step 520 (below). Namely, the timer 115 starts the awakening sufficiently in advance to the wireless communication device (WCD) were able to take their message alert call in the designated frame of the radio and the topic. At step 504, the wireless communication device (WCD) performs various maintenance tasks revival associated with the preparation of various radio frequency (RF), analog and digital subsystems for receiving message notification call. You can also perform other maintenance tasks awakening, such as initial loading, loading programs into memory, configuring hardware, etc. Details logon to sleep and leaving it explains many issued and pending patent applications owned by QUALCOMM.

At step 506 in which trojstvo 102 management expects the following message alert call or alert broadcast. Depending on exactly when the wireless communication device (WCD) came out of a sleep state (which may be specially planned, as discussed below), the first alert message that will be accepted, can be a message, a call alert or one of the recurring messages alert broadcast. In any case, the device 102 control receives the message at step 508. In the example, which has a different message alert broadcasts for various services broadcasting, reception at step 506 message alert broadcast includes receiving a message alert broadcast related to a particular subscription package wireless communication devices (WCD).

At step 509, the device 102 management evaluates metrics (metrics) of the signal of one or more prescribed signals from the network. This is used to determine how many times to listen to the message alert broadcast during the sequence 506-510. For example, if the message alert broadcasting was adopted once, but the level/quality of the signal is bad, step 509 may decide to take another instance of the message.

In one example of step 509, the measuring signal can contain interaction device 102 controls the transceiver 104 for measuring net powerfully the tee, incoming in-band radio frequency (RF), which interacts with the wireless communication device (WCD). As another example, step 509 may be performed by the device 102 management, measuring the net power of a common pilot signal broadcasted by one or more base stations, which interact with the wireless communication device (WCD). As another example, device 102, the control can calculate the signal-to-noise ratio of a common pilot signal. As another example, device 102, the control can calculate the signal-to-noise directly message alerts. If the signal of step 509 using a common pilot signal as a standard signal, this step can be performed at a different time, for example, before step 506. Assignment indicator signal values are "bad" or "good" may contain a comparison of the signal with a specified threshold using a moving average, with a review of historical data set for the wireless communication devices (WCD), or using any other suitable method.

At step 510, the control unit determines if it should wait to receive another message alerts. This is determined by how many times was performed in step 506, together with the result of step 509, sidemove above. Arbitrarily indicators signal from the previous state of awakening (as performed in the step 518) may be considered in addition to or instead of data signal of step 509. In one example of step 510, if the first step 506 in its current state, Wake-up received a message alert call, then step 510 instructs the repetition of step 506 to receive the message alert broadcast, or Vice versa. In addition, even if the signals were taken and the call alert, and alert broadcasting, at step 510, the device 102 management may decide to take one or more instances of message alert broadcast if the reception conditions are poor signal (e.g., as measured at the step 509).

In another example, if the conditions of signal reception was poor during the previous state of awakening, the device 102 management could schedule (step 520, discussed below) awakening early enough to track one message alert broadcast, the message alert call, then another message alert broadcast. After receiving the first message alert broadcasting (step 506), if the device 102 management determines (step 509), the conditions of signal reception has improved to the point where adequate reception of the same message, povedeniya broadcast, step 510 would have made the conclusion that the device 102 management should not remain in the active state after receiving the message, the call alert to track the second instance of the message alert broadcast.

When the control device should not receive further messages alerts, step 510 proceeds to step 512. At step 512, the device 102 performs control branching to either (1) at step 514, if step 506 discovered the call alert and/or the broadcast, as applicable to a given wireless communication device (WCD), or (2) at step 518, if step 506 found no alerts for this wireless communication devices (WCD).

In the case of step 514, the device 102 management continues to remain active and performs various other tasks 516, as required for processing or response to the recent alerts. Namely, if the call alert device 102 Department receives additional information about the incoming call, answer the call, etc. In case of alert broadcasting device 102 control equipment accesses a network equipment (or review the content of other messages, whether sent by the network) for descriptions of the declared content broadcasting, downloading the content automatically (under the default setting, or prior user input) or manually (via a custom keyboard or voice command), etc.

Unlike the above description, if the wireless communication device (WCD) has not received the alert call and/or broadcast at step 506, the device 102 management preparing to resume from hibernation. At step 518, the device 102 management evaluates the performance of the signal to determine how many times you should listen to the message alert broadcasting (step 506)before you perform the following message alert call. The measuring signal at step 518 may be performed in different ways, as discussed above in the context of step 509. After step 518, the device 102 management plans the following state of awakening (step 520). Namely, the device 102 management programs, installs, or otherwise configures the timer 115 to activate the device 102 control at the appropriate time of awakening. This information is used, containing (1) indicators signal, (2) assigned to the wireless communication device (WCD) the time the call alert (e.g., section), which is broadcast over the network to the appropriate service channel is established by the network, or the carrier, when the wireless communication device (WCD) is activated, or otherwise installed in accordance with known procedures, and (3) schedule message alert broadcasting, which t is the train can be accessed in this way.

As one example, when the conditions are good indicators of the signal (as measured at the step 518), the device 102 management can schedule a revival so that the wireless communication device (WCD) has completed stage 504 at the last possible moment, even allowing for the reception of the message alert call and the nearest (in time) of the previous or next message alert broadcast. This is possible if the wireless communication device (WCD) is aware of the scheduled transmission message alert broadcasting or via a built-in programming wireless communication devices (WCD), or receive service of transmissions from the network, or the programming of the wireless communication devices (WCD) during activation of the existing carrier, etc.

Under the conditions of the poor performance of the signal (as measured at the step 518), the device 102 can control plan stages 502/506 so that the wireless communication device (WCD) have completed step 504 in time to receive the message alert broadcast to signal the call alert. This of course would receive the message alert call and then the following message alert broadcast. Thus, the wireless communication device (WCD) receives two messages alert broadcasting and one alert message is the call for a minimal time. If the signal is particularly bad, the device 102 management may prefer to accumulate the message alert broadcasting two, three or even more times before the next message alert call, using the most effective combination of upstream and downstream sections of the message alert call.

Assignment indicator signal values are "bad" or "good" may contain a comparison of the signal with a specified threshold using a moving average, with a review of historical data set for the wireless communication devices (WCD), or using any other suitable method.

Prior planning is performed by the device 102 management, programming the timer 115 to Wake up at the appropriate time and/or machine-readable recording commands in the memory 117. Such commands may include software address settings, flags, or any other relevant characteristics for later retrieval and use by the device 102 management during the next execution of step 506.

After step 520, the device 102 management instructed the relevant components of the wireless communication devices (WCD), including yourself, if applicable, to enter into a state of hibernation with the low energopotrebleni the m (step 522).

SUBSTANCE: mobile station (MS1,…,MS10) initiates a call, which contains query for priority access. If system lacks resources for immediate processing of call, initiation message is processed by base station (BS1, BS2) and mobile communication commutation center with use of large number of message transfer protocols for determining time, when call was initiated, and priority, related to current call. On basis of priority and time of call base station places the call to queue, while calls with higher priority get better position in queue, then calls with lesser priority. Calls with similar priorities can be placed in queue according to time of receiving each call. When system resources become available, waiting call with higher priority is granted a channel, and call is processed normally.

EFFECT: higher efficiency.
