Method and device arrangement for managing the use profile of a terminal device

Patent US 8365162
Granted: 29.1.2013 in United States

Patent FI 122213
Granted: 14.10.2011 in Finland

The invention relates to a method, device arrangement, server (15), terminal device (11) and a computer program product for changing the use profile of a single terminal device (11) of a cellular network.

In the method, according to the invention, there is a server (15) connected to a telecommunications network, which sends to a single terminal device (11) a program required by the change of its use profile as an OTA message, if the terminal device (11) has found the program to be lacking from the terminal device when the new use profile is taken into use. Procedures according to the DM standard of OMA are utilized in the messaging.

Method and device arrangement for managing a User Application/Device Management Server/Client Device environment

Patent US 8037160
Granted: 11.10.2011 in United States

Patent HK 1115958
Granted: 19.11.2010 in Hong Kong

Patent GB 2443567
Granted: 31.3.2010 in United Kingdom

Patent FI 119672
Granted: 30.1.2009 in Finland

The invention relates to a method and data transfer arrangement for executing consecutive instructions in a client device (21) in a mobile user application – device management server – client device environment (23, 22, 21). The invention also relates to an instruction execution module utilized in the implementation of the method.

In the procedure, according to the invention, the user application (23) forms the instructions to be executed in the client device (21) into an instruction sequence (200), which is transmitted to the device management server (22) controlling the client device (21).

The instruction execution module in the device management server breaks up the instruction sequence into command sequences and control structures. The command sequences are executed in the client device (21).

The conditional commands belonging to the instruction sequence, specified by the control structures, are executed by the instruction execution module individually, without the help of the user application. The device management server sends a message describing the success of the execution of the instruction sequence to the user application.

Method and device arrangement for managing a client/server environment

Patent HK 1116318
Granted: 19.11.2010 in Hong Kong

Patent GB 2443568
Granted: 31.3.2010 in United Kingdom

Patent FI 120286
Granted: 31.8.2009 in Finland

The invention relates to a method and data transfer arrangement for executing consecutive instructions in a client device (21) in a mobile device management server – client device environment (22, 21). The invention also relates to an instruction execution module utilized in the implementation of the method.

In the procedure, according to the invention, the device management server (22) forms the instructions to be executed in the client device (21) into an instruction sequence, which is transmitted to the client device (21). The instruction execution module in the client device breaks up the instruction sequence into command sequences and control structures.

The instruction execution module executes the conditional commands belonging to the instruction sequence and specified by the control structures individually without the help of the device management server (22). After the execution of all the instructions, the client device (21) sends a message describing the success of the execution to the device management server.

Device management method and arrangement of a mobile device

Patent GB 2454583
Granted: 9.1.2013 in United Kingdom

Patent FI 121618
Granted: 31.1.2011 in Finland

The invention relates to a device management method of wirelessly-operating data processing devices, a device management system utilizing the method and a hierarchical data structure (1) used in the method, which comprises device profiles (2, 21, 210) of single data processing devices belonging to the device management system.

In the device management method, according to the invention, a database is created in a device management server belonging to the device management system which includes the device profiles of all data processing devices belonging to the device management system. A single device profile includes data required in managing the data processing device.

By means of the device profile, the device management server converts a macro-level device management instruction into a device-specific command sequence which it sends to the data processing device being the target of managing to be executed.

Management of mobile station memory content

Patent FI 121131
Granted: 15.7.2010 in Finland

The invention relates to a method for an at least partial erasure of the memory content of a mobile station in a mobile communication system. The starting of the erasure of the mobile station memory content is arranged to be responsive to the checking of a unique equipment identity of the mobile station performed in the mobile communication network on the basis of the unique equipment identities included in an equipment register.

If a network element providing mobile communication services receives from an equipment register element the information, according to which the mobile station that has contacted the mobile communication network is defined as barred in the equipment register, a message to be sent from the mobile communication network to the mobile station is formed for erasing the memory content of the mobile station. This message is transmitted from the mobile communication network to the mobile station, and the mobile station detects a need for an at least partial erasure of the memory content in response to the reception of said message.

Client provisioning

Patent FI 121046
Granted: 15.6.2010 in Finland

A method, comprising receiving, in a receiver, a provisioning message including one or more configuration settings for configuration of the receiver, analyzing one or more characteristics of a sender of the provisioning message, analyzing the security settings used in transmission of the provisioning message, assessing a security level of the provisioning message on the basis of the one or more characteristics of the sender and the security settings of the provisioning message, and saving configuration settings from the provisioning message into the receiver if the security level of the provisioning message fulfills a predetermined security level requirement.

Method, data transfer arrangement, server and terminal device for updating information in a terminal device

Patent FI 117151
Granted: 30.6.2006 in Finland

The invention relates to a method and data transfer arrangement for synchronizing information comprised by an application program in a client device (11). In the method, information comprised by an application program in a client device is updated (18, 19) from a media server (13) maintaining up-to-date information.

In addition, the data transfer arrangement comprises a separate license server (12), which contains two separate license files: the first license file and the second license file. The up-to-date status of information in the client device (11) can be ensured by means of the first license file. The second license file comprises information by which the update required by the client device can be retrieved from media server (13) maintaining up-to-date information.

 

A method and system embedding a non-detectable fingerprint in a digital media file

Patent US 8499159
Granted: 30.7.2013 in United States

The invention relates to a method and system for embedding in a digital media file user fingerprint which the user cannot detect when using the digital media file. In the method, a user-detectable watermark is first embedded in the digital media file. This watermark can be transformed in a client device to a non-detectable fingerprint of the user by utilizing digital media file-specific information issued by a digital media rights owner when the user has bought a user license. Afterwards the digital media rights owner can read the embedded user fingerprint from the digital media file if it is illegally distributed between other users.
