Description

The invention relates to a method of authenticating the user of the first radio communication network and for charging him fees for communication between the user device and the first network radio communication using the mobile communication system according to the generic concept of paragraph 1 of the claims.

For communication or data transfer there are many a variety of telecommunication networks and data networks. Thus it is necessary to distinguish between two fundamentally different types of networks. On the one hand, there are mobile communication system, for example according to the GSM standard (global system for mobile communication) or UMTS (Universal mobile telecommunications system), in which the mobile station when the registration in the network are authenticated and receive authorization. Preferred in such networks is that due to authentication becomes possible charging fees for services requested. In addition, these are typically, cellular networks provide the opportunity for a high degree of mobility as the user with his mobile station may move from one network cell to another. The disadvantage in such a cellular mobile communication systems is that a very high overhead costs. In addition to the CSO, these systems provide for the radio interface to the mobile user station only a relatively low data transfer rate.

Mobile radio systems transmit information (e.g., speech, information, images, videos, short messages (SMS) or other data) with the aid of electromagnetic waves via a radio interface between transmitting and receiving station. This radiation of electromagnetic waves is carried out at carrier frequencies which are in the frequency band provided for the respective system. Radio system-this includes station user side, for example the mobile station and the base station, for example, nodes, and other network devices. When this base station and network devices form a network of mobile radio communications. The user station and the base station in the mobile radio network linked to each other via the radio interface.

On the other hand, there are networks that are implemented as a local area network (LAN) or a local area radio communication network (WLAN). Such networks provide for user devices organizational and technically very easy access. An additional advantage is significantly higher than in the networks of mobile radio, speed data interfaces to polzovatelya.html. The lack of such local networks is the lack of authentication and, therefore, the possibility of charging for the connection.

Under the local networks understand, as a rule, the network connection length from a few tens of meters up to 10 km But most local area networks LAN have a length of only a few hundred meters inside buildings or organizations (home network).

Wireless LAN (WLAN) provide the ability, for example, communication between the wired network infrastructure and mobile computing devices. Often WLAN introduced as an addition to the cable LAN particular operational environment. Typically, the WLAN cover different access points (AP), which are connected with each other through a wired LAN and in which data transmission is performed from the mobile transmitter on the radio access point AP and then continues through LAN network. Cover wireless networks WLAN cells, with a diameter of up to several hundred meters, so small compared to normal cells of the mobile communication that they are called micro-cells.

Examples of different standards for WLANs are HiperLAN, DECT, IEE 802.11, Bluetooth and WATM. At present, however, as a local radio network primarily in the U.S. and in Europe almost exclusively segments is Auda products on the basis of the family of IEEE 802.11 standards, with the appropriate connection to the Ethernet in many computers and portable computers (e.g. laptops, notebooks, personal digital assistants) provided as standard. Defined according to the IEEE 802.11b radio interface to access the local network is functionally equivalent to a wired connection to a local area network (LAN), which have now become standard in the office premises. Interface card for wireless access to local area networks, which are also referred to as network interface card (NIC), from the perspective of architecture, can be manufactured as a standardized Ethernet card and using modern operating systems can be used in the auto-configuration (plug-and-play). Laptops can easily be equipped with the appropriate interface cards, if they are already from the very beginning does not come with built-in wired or wireless access to local area networks. In the case of operating systems for present and future generations (for example, Windows XP, Microsoft) provides full native support for the local radio network (WLAN).

In the General case for WLAN networks use unlicensed frequency band 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. Transfer speeds up to 11 Mbit/s of the future development of the main WLAN network could be operated in the 5 GHz band and to achieve data transmission speeds over 50 Mbit/s At current speeds of 11 Mbps and future speeds of 50 Mbps users WLAN thereby made available to the data transfer rate that significantly exceeds the data rate that can be offered as the third generation mobile communication systems (such as UMTS). Thereby to transfer large amounts of data, in particular, in connection with access to the Internet, often for high-speed preferred compounds will have access to a local radio network (WLAN).

WLAN in increasing the volume used in hotels, airports, exhibitions and other places with high density of visitors. A significant factor for the successful use of WLANs is the authentication and charging fees for communication between users. The disadvantage of the local radio network (WLAN) it should be noted that they do not provide authentication for already registered in the system stations or computers. However, operators WLANs must, for example, in the area of the airport to provide access to many different users from different regions. To be able to authenticate the user, the operator of the WLAN would have to conclude agreements on mutual licensing with all Internet service providers (ISP), the number to is that only in Germany, currently more than 60000.

However, without user authentication or user devices in a WLAN cannot be retroactive payment for the requested services, as they do not know who should be sent the bill. Therefore, access to the local radio network should be provided either free or subject to prepayment in the form of so-called pre-paid services through deduction from a credit card or the like.

For operators of these systems mobile radio these problems are solved in a simple way. Cellular mobile radio communications contain a large number of users of mobile radio communication, which must be authenticated. In addition, these networks mobile radio communications have a system of charging or billing. Through the so-called international roaming can also be serviced and to authenticate users that are registered or signed for services from another service provider. Because currently the majority of consumers in industrialized countries are users of mobile communication, the mobile operator may be addressed to virtually every consumer himself or through another service provider.

Approaches in how the mobile operator who can integrate the WLAN on your own cellular mobile radio network, are the most diverse. At the present state of Affairs, in principle, a distinction is made between rigid and flexible communication. Under hard link is a complete UMTS integration, i.e., using only the physical layer of the WLAN, otherwise all higher levels of the Protocol adopted from the UMTS system and accordingly configured. This solution, however, more is not discussed because it was economically hardly successful and technically difficult to achieve.

With respect to options flexible connection, there are currently two based on the infrastructure of the call option based on the use of registered identification card (SIM (subscriber identity module) or RADIUS (remote subscriber identification over telephone lines). In the variant based on the SIM-card in a laptop or network access card for him is put your SIM card. WLAN seems to be, for example, as a local register of visitors (VLR) of the mobile radio network and communicates with a mobile radio network via an application Protocol for mobile communications (MAR). However, the economic feasibility for mobile operator strongly depends on whether in the future each card to access the local network radio to contain in accordance with the standard SIM card. For this production the prevalence of computers, as well as standardization bodies should develop common standards for data networks and telecommunications networks or the mobile operator would have to provide their network interface cards (NIC) special type.

In a variant of the RADIUS Protocol, the mobile radio network is represented, for example, as server authentication, authorization and charging for WLAN, allowing modification of the user equipment within the WLAN is not required.

In another approach, the user WLAN enters their mobile number call (MSISDN) in an HTML page, WLAN, which is transmitted from the WLAN to the mobile communication system. Then the mobile radio system sends the user to the WLAN password by SMS message transmitted to the mobile station, which then is used to control access to the WLAN. This ensures that access to the WLAN receives only the user who has a valid subscription to a mobile communication system.

From the document WO 95/19593 known method of authenticating a user of a computer system in which paging through the user sent the message. The user processes the message and sends the processed message to the computer system, where it is used as a criterion for making decisions is tion of user access.

Specially in the ground system for mobile communications GSM is the abbreviation SMS (short message Service) refers to a standardized service one-way transmission of messages with a limited volume. Short messages are text messages that do not exceed a certain maximum volume of text characters.

In document WO 01/63883 A2 describes a method that allows charging for a short message performed via the prepaid account of the user who sends or receives a short message. The method of loading a pre-paid account is disclosed, for example, in document EP 1150482 A2.

Thus, although the problem of user authentication WLAN solved, but still need to find an effective way of charging. To do this, it was suggested, along with the transfer of information to debit the payment from the WLAN to the so-called server-the electronic wallet, to provide information about the payments from the WLAN network to the operator of a mobile communication system. The latter can be performed by connection of the WLAN system of micropayments mobile phone network.

Describes how charging require, however, provide additional devices in the WLAN. So they come into conflict with the economic interests of the operas is tori WLAN.

The objective of the invention is to provide a method of the above type which enables both effective and feasible low-cost authentication and similar charges fees for communication to the user of the radio communication network using a mobile communication system.

This task is solved by a method characterized by signs of paragraph 1 of the claims.

A preferred form of execution and further development are the subject of dependent claims.

In accordance with the invention, the identification information of the user and/or the mobile station is transmitted via the user device from the first radio communication network to the mobile radio network, or the mobile station transmits in the network of a mobile radio signal, then the mobile radio network sends the mobile station is payable in a short message that contains the access information to the first radio communication network, and charging fees for communication between the user device and the first network radio communication is carried out by charging for a short message in a mobile radio network.

The first network radio represents, in particular, the local radio network, i.e. the WLAN. However, the method can in principle be applied to other radio network. Transmitted from the mobile is the first station in the network of a mobile radio signal is formed so the mobile radio network recognizes that the user desired access information to the first radio communication network. A short message, which is sent to the mobile station from the mobile radio network contains at least information access. It may, however, contain other information. The access information may be used by the first network radio in order to make a decision about the user's access to this first radio communication network. Thus, information access provides the ability to link a user via the user device with the first network radio. Charging for a short message in the mobile radio network is carried out through the relevant settlement account. Thus we can talk about the current user account, and other accounts, which, for example, is defined for a user group or similar.

Corresponding to the invention method has several advantages:

- The operator of the mobile communication system may be a cost-effective manner, i.e. without additional cost, to connect WLAN foreign providers to own a mobile radio network.

Users accustomed to useful information based on SMS messages, so they do not require the transition to the new technology.

- Eliminates the risk of the awn send invoices via operator WLAN "wrong" to the recipient.

- A single payment for a short message corresponds to the Board at the same rate, which is considered by the users, usually as a desirable option payment.

- Desirable service WLAN is available immediately after receiving the short message.

- The operator of the mobile communication system can check the requests for services that meet future UMTS services through a request to the appropriate services within the WLAN network.

For operators of mobile communication system and a WLAN does not require any additional investment in new equipment.

Users have shown an increased willingness to further deployment of paid services by the same method for calculating payment. So, for example, charging fees for certain services the Internet after you have implemented user access to the WLAN can be produced by charging the following short message in a mobile radio network. In this case, the method of charging fees for communication between the user device and the first network radio again is in relation to a particular connection, after the user has already been authenticated in accordance with the relevant invention method and was the first corresponding to the invention accruals the group account. Information access refers then to the next payment service that the user is requesting. Corresponding to the invention can thus optionally be reused, making implements the differentiation of the Board.

In one embodiment of the invention, charging for a short message in the mobile radio network is carried out after receiving the short messages to the mobile station. In this case, the charging is performed regardless of how the user uses the access information. Fees may be charged to the relevant settlement account as soon as the user took his mobile station paid a short message.

The preferred way of charging for a short message in the mobile radio network is carried out after opening the short message. Thus, before opening a short message, the user may be queried whether it would be desirable for him to open this short message. Thereby, it is possible to avoid that the user will have to pay for the short message that he does not want to use or view, or that he has requested unintentionally.

In the further development of the invention, charging for a short message in the mobile radio network is p the following application information access in the first radio communication network. Thus is realized that the user of the first radio communication network you'll be charged only when he uses the access information to initiate communication with the first network radio. In this case, it is assumed that the user can be sent a short message with the access information of the mobile radio network, which he does not really apply. In this case, there will not be charging.

The preferred image identification information of the user and/or the mobile station may represent the number of the calling mobile station. Thus, the mobile radio network a simple way to know the number of the call, which shall then be forwarded pay a short message. Also it is possible to send a user name or identification number, such as IMSI (international mobile identification number), so from this information, the mobile radio network can determine the number of call that should be forwarded pay a short message.

In a preferred form of execution of the invention, the mobile station transmits to the mobile network radio signal using the number of the call to the mobile radio network, which is used to authenticate the user of the first radio communication network and charging. Thus we can speak, for example, the R, special number call to the intelligent network, which was created specifically for the purpose of authentication and charging inside the other radio communication network. The mobile radio network recognizes this special number call, what demands are made by the user, namely, the transfer paid short message identification information.

The preferred way, in case the number of the call talking about the free call number.

In accordance with one embodiment of the invention the charge for a short message depends on the services requested by the user in the first network radio. Charging fees for communication between the user device and the first network radio by charging for a short message in a mobile radio network corresponds to lump-sum payments for communication between the user device and the first network radio. In accordance with this, it seems that a higher rate should correspond to the service that requires high speed data transfer. Generally, the fee for a short message with information access should be higher than the usual fee for other transmitted in the mobile radio short message.

In a preferred form of execution of the invention, the mobile radio network transmits info is the information access to the first radio communication network. Thus, the first network radio can compare passed to it from the mobile radio network access information from the access information of the user device, and on this basis to make a decision about the user's access to the first radio communication network. It is also possible that as the mobile radio network and the first network radio have a list of valid information access. From this list, the mobile radio network then selects the access information to be transmitted to the mobile station through paid short messages.

The invention is illustrated below by the example of execution. An example implementation is described below in more detail with reference to the drawings, which represent the following:

Fig. 1 is a block diagram of a method corresponding to the invention,

Fig. 2 is a schematic representation of a mobile communication system,

Fig. 3 is a schematic representation of a local area radio communication network and the mobile radio network.

In the exemplary embodiment describes the user who has a subscription in the mobile radio system. The user with his mobile station and the notebook computer is in the coverage area of the radio communication LAN WLAN radio. The user would like to use the services of the local network. As the operator of the WLAN, it is desirable to provide in the district is sparagana local network on a fee basis, must be user authentication and charging him a fee.

Figure 1 presents the block diagram corresponding to the invention, a user authentication and charging him fees. At the beginning of a way for a user there are two possibilities: he may, at the request of the WLAN to inform their mobile phone number to call (the user enters into the portable computer room MSISDN), then the WLAN transmits this number to the system of mobile communication (WLAN transmits MSISDN). According to the WLAN network mobile radio detects that the user needs to access the WLAN.

Alternatively, the user can through its mobile station (MS) dial services special intelligent network (IN) (MS gaining IN-room). Currently, conventional cellular radio communications have, as a rule, intelligent network, through which they can provide so-called ancillary services or additional services to its mobile subscribers, for example, routing the call to the mailbox for voice mail. These systems are, as a rule, from the point of connection to the service and control service. The first recognizes, for example, the selected number of the call that is desired service intelligent network IN; the latter recognizes the desired service and ensures the provision of and charging for the service. The control services are implemented, usually on server platforms. Using the selected number of the mobile radio network recognizes that the user needs to access the WLAN.

The mobile radio network after receiving information regarding the request for information access (reception in PLMN) sends to the mobile station user an SMS message to a premium rate that contains the password for a single use (one time password) for use in WLAN (sending SMS increased rate with password). SMS message to a premium rate or value-added has a high cost compared to conventional SMS messages. This occurred for user charges for SMS at a premium rate increase compared to the normal costs for a standard SMS message (e.g., 19 cents) per card corresponding to the requested network service WLAN (for example, 10 Euro per day access to a WLAN). The user pays, therefore, also only one single payment for the use of WLAN. Determination of time of use WLAN, or transmitted amount of data should not be performed. Therefore, it may no longer be necessary commonly used system charging. However, it is possible to inform the mobile radio network via IN-but the EPA or by passing MSISDN about what type of services would like to request the user so that the cost of an SMS message at a premium rate could be varied in accordance with the category of services.

After the mobile station has received the SMS message at a premium rate (receive SMS in MS), there are plenty of opportunities for time charging. In the simplest case, the charging can be carried out directly after receiving SMS messages (charging for SMS). From the account balance, which is correlated with the user in the mobile radio communications, written off, for example, 10,19€. Another possibility consists in charging fees at the time when the user opened the SMS message at a premium rate (opening SMS). It can also be associated with a warning message before opening the SMS message at a premium rate in order to draw the user's attention before opening the SMS message at a premium rate for opening a short message means the appearance of increased cost. Another possibility consists in charging after use of password by the user in the WLAN (the password in a portable computer). In the latter case, the WLAN must inform the mobile network that held the use of a password. This can be realized also by the fact that part of the WLAN are an integral hour is calling mobile communication system, so the notification to the mobile network LAN connection is not required.

Figure 2 schematically shows the process carried out between the mobile station MS and the mobile network PLMN. Mobile station MS selects the corresponding number of the intelligent network IN, which is part of the network PLMN mobile radio communications (MS selects IN-room). After that, the network PLMN mobile radio sends the mobile station MS SMS increased tariff, which contains a valid password for the WLAN (sending SMS at a premium rate with password). Forwarding SMS messages participates device SMSC (short message service). The device SMSC delivers short message and sends information about the charging for short messages in the system charging network PLMN mobile radio. Network PLMN mobile radio scores assets ACCOUNT for a user. From this account asset ACCOUNT is debited payment per SMS message at a premium rate (charging for SMS).

To request access to the WLAN, the user enters transferred by the mobile radio network password in the portable computer ("enter the password in the portable computer in Fig. 1). The password can be entered in connection with the MSISDN or without via an input mask on a portable computer. After that the WLAN PR who makes the decision on the user access control access to the WLAN).

Figure 3 shows computing device LAPTOP (portable computer), which radio channel associated with the item AR access the WLAN. This computing device LAPTOP corresponds to the appropriate user device that has connectivity to the WLAN radio. The WLAN consists of many devices over the air or through the respective conductive lines are connected to each other. These include devices such as routers and bridges to distribute data across multiple user devices. Part of the WLAN, connected wired connection is a LAN. The password is transmitted from the computing device, LAPTOP radio in the access point from which it over the wire enters the item AU authentication.

Point AU authentication compares received from computing device, LAPTOP password with the information that was passed to it from the mobile radio network. For this network PLMN mobile radio contains block-granting service password which is sent to the WLAN valid passwords. Block-granting service passwords can optionally generate these passwords. Valid passwords can be sent WLAN periodically, for example daily, or specifically, for example, on request. Example is, daily WLAN can be passed a valid password list. If a password is used, it is deleted from the list of WLAN and network PLMN mobile radio. The transmission of the password in the WLAN via the network PLMN mobile radio communications can also be carried out before sending the password in the mobile station MS or essentially simultaneously, depending on the type of connection between the WLAN and the mobile radio system.

Point AU authentication may, for example, be a part of a corresponding intelligent network services.

Point AU authentication may, after successful authentication of paragraph AC access control to provide services to the WLAN. Point AU authentication and paragraph AC access control can be on the same platform or to be separated. After executed enable the computing device LAPTOP may, in accordance with the requested service to communicate with the WLAN or via WLAN.
