The object of the invention is a method, network element, and system for positioning a subscriber terminal in a packet-switched mobile telephone network, the said network comprising a core network element (SGSN, 504), base stations, a Base Station Controller (501) controlling these, and a mobile terminal; the connections in the mobile telephone network are arranged in a packet-switched fashion. The system comprises a location unit (SMLC, 505) for determining the position of the terminal, functionally connected with the Base Station Controller (501) of the mobile telephone network; the connection between the Base Station Controller (501) and the location unit (SMLC) is circuit-switched. The base station controller (501) comprises both circuit-switched (BSC) and packet-switched (PCU) functionality for processing circuit-switched, and respectively, packet-switched messages, as well as means (506, 507) for establishing an association between the circuit-switched and the packet-switched functionality for the transmission of data related to a specific positioning between the packet-switched and the circuit-switched functionality.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
