Enhanced Policy Capabilities For Mobile Data Services

View page
US Patent:
8185628, May 22, 2012
Filed:
May 7, 2008
Appl. No.:
12/116896
Inventors:
Douglas Eng - Sammamish WA,
Terry Figurelle - Redmond WA,
Michael Britt - Everett WA,
Jie McKnight - Redmond WA,
Assignee:
AT&T Mobility II LLC - Atlanta GA
International Classification:
G06F 13/00
US Classification:
709225, 709219, 709224, 709250
Abstract:
A system and method for a mobile data access network to make policy control and charging decisions based on domain name queries. A mobile device sends a query about a domain name associated with a service a user of the mobile device wishes to engage. The access network carries the domain name query from a mobile device to a domain name server. The access network detects the domain name query and copies the queried domain name. The access network uses the queried domain name to make an incomplete policy decision. The policy decision is incomplete because one or more service data flow filters in the decision lack addresses for providers of the service. The access network detects a response to the domain name query and copies a service provider address from the response. The access network uses the service provider address to complete the policy decision.

US Patent:
8543698, Sep 24, 2013
Filed:
May 21, 2012
Appl. No.:
13/476943
Inventors:
Douglas Eng - Sammamish WA,
Terry Figurelle - Redmond WA,
Michael Britt - Everett WA,
Jie McKnight - Redmond WA,
Assignee:
AT&T Mobility II LLC - Atlanta GA
International Classification:
G06F 13/00
US Classification:
709225, 709219, 709227, 709250

System And Method For Policy-Enabled Mobile Service Gateway

US Patent:
8607304, Dec 10, 2013
Filed:
May 7, 2008
Appl. No.:
12/116630
Inventors:
Q James Hu - Sammamish WA,
Douglas Eng - Sammamish WA,
Terry Figurelle - Redmond WA,
Michael Britt - Everett WA,
Assignee:
AT&T Mobility II LLC - Atlanta GA
International Classification:
G06F 21/00
US Classification:
726 1, 726 2, 726 3, 726 4, 726 5, 726 6, 726 25, 726 26, 726 27, 726 28, 726 29, 726 30, 709227, 709228, 709229, 709230
Abstract:
A policy-enabled service gateway contains a gateway function and a local policy engine containing policies related to the functionality of the associated gateway function. New or updated policies may be provided to the local policy engine from a centralized policy server. The policies within the local policy engine are functionally related to the gateway function and provide for policy and/or charging enforcement associated with the gateway function. If the local policy engine does not contain a particular policy, it may request the policy from the centralized policy server. The local policy engine may choose to store the requested policy for future use.

Dynamic Mobile Service Control Deployment Architecture

View page
US Patent:
20090227231, Sep 10, 2009
Filed:
May 7, 2008
Appl. No.:
12/116893
Inventors:
Douglas Eng - Sammamish WA,
Terry Figurelle - Redmond WA,
Michael Britt - Everett WA,
International Classification:
H04M 1/66
US Classification:
455410
Abstract:
A dynamic mobile service control architecture for policy-based control and charging of a mobile data network is described. Reference point links logically connecting a subscription profile repository and a service gateway allows the service gateway to receive information about a subscription to a service by a subscriber and forward this subscription information to an external application function that is providing the service to the subscriber through the mobile data network. Reference point links logically connecting a policy server with the service gateway allows the service gateway to receive and enforce policy rules on service data flows passing through the service gateway.

Policy Application Server For Mobile Data Networks

View page
US Patent:
20090228953, Sep 10, 2009
Filed:
May 7, 2008
Appl. No.:
12/116538
Inventors:
Douglas Eng - Sammamish WA,
Terry Figurelle - Redmond WA,
Assignee:
AT&T MOBILITY II LLC - Atlanta GA
International Classification:
G06F 21/00
US Classification:
726 1
Abstract:
A policy application server and methods for use are described. The policy application server is a logical element of a policy-based control and charging system for a mobile data service network. The policy application server is configured to manage policies including creating, revising, formatting, and provisioning of policies. The policy application server is configured to assemble policy rules from policies and context data. Context data includes subscriber and service information needed to make a particular policy rule. The policy application server gathers context data from one or more network databases. The policy application server is configured to send policy rules to select ones of a plurality of policy decision engines. The policy application server manages the storing of policies, policy rules and formatted context data in select ones of a plurality of policy repositories.

Scalable Policy Deployment Architecture In A Communication Network

US Patent:
20120191842, Jul 26, 2012
Filed:
Jan 21, 2011
Appl. No.:
13/011808
Inventors:
Qingmin Hu - Sammamish WA,
Douglas Eng - Sammamish WA,
Terry Figurelle - Redmond WA,
Jie McKnight - Bellevue WA,
Assignee:
AT&T INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY I, L.P. - Reno NV
International Classification:
G06F 15/173
US Classification:
709224
Abstract:
Aspects describe using a Policy Access Gateway to facilitate scalability within a communication network and to provide a solution to deploy an enhanced policy gateway. The Policy Access Gateway can enhance standard defined Diameter Routing Agent (DRA) functions with session binding mechanisms. Further, the Policy Access Gateway is scalable and can be deployed in a very large network that supports hundreds of millions of users. Further, the Policy Access Gateway can provide additional policy information to enable policy information consolidation and caching capabilities.

Long Term Evolution Network Dynamic Overload Management

US Patent:
20130336118, Dec 19, 2013
Filed:
Jun 18, 2012
Appl. No.:
13/525554
Inventors:
Venson M. Shaw - Kirkland WA,
Terry Figurelle - Redmond WA,
Qingmin Hu - Sammamish WA,
Ryan Eric Redfern - Cerritos CA,
Jianrong Wang - Sammamish WA,
Assignee:
AT&T INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY I, L.P. - Atlanta GA
International Classification:
H04L 12/24
US Classification:
370235
Abstract:
A downstream device in a network may monitor and collect data on its condition, including detecting overload conditions, and transmit such data to an upstream network device. The upstream network device may select a best downstream device for a particular traffic flow based on condition data received from downstream devices and transmit the traffic flow to the selected downstream device. A network management server may be configured to perform similar functions, instructing network devices on how to transport data through a network based on condition data received from such devices.
