Method for providing communication device with radio software, involves downloading radio software through available selected radio access technology and storing downloaded software designed for technology in memory.
2003 (English)Patent (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
NOVELTY - The method involves selection a radio access technology e.g. wireless local area network (WLAN), wideband code division multiple access (WCDMA) for communication device (9) for downloading radio software from download server (1). The radio software is downloaded through the available access technology and the downloaded software designed for the technology is stored in memory. USE - For providing communication device e.g. mobile terminal such as CDMA phone, GSM phone, lap top, personal computer with modem, pager, personal digital assistant (PDA) with radio software from software download server for providing radio access technologies (RAT) e.g. WCDMA, GSM/GRPS, WLAN, IEEE 802.11a, IEEE.11b . ADVANTAGE - Downloads or upgrades software intended for one radio access technology over an available radio access technology supported by the device. The software download can be performed as a background process that does not have to be coordinated with or blocking other types of traffic including data, control traffic or wireless services. DETAILED DESCRIPTION - INDEPENDENT CLAIMS are also included for the following: (1) communication device; (2) system for providing communication device with radio software; and (3) computer readable medium storing program for providing communication device with radio software. DESCRIPTION OF DRAWING(S) - The figure shows the simplified block diagram of the wireless network. software download server (1) backbone network (3) wireless access networks (5,7) communication device (9)
