Abstract

Without substantial stack code change and a lot more test/certification effort, current Orpheus Stack or TTPcom stack doesn't provide a GSM-voice-only or GPRS/EGPRS-data-only service capability to endusers. The always fixed & combined GSM & GPRS attach is limiting consumers' freedom to select their own service modes according to various situations.

Without substantial stack code change and a lot more test/certification effort, current Orpheus Stack or TTPcom stack doesn't provide a GSM-voice-only or GPRS/EGPRS-data-only service capability to endusers. The always fixed & combined GSM & GPRS attach is limiting consumers' freedom to select their own service modes according to various situations.

 A.  Current stack & application lack more service combinations. In fact, there are 16 combinations if:

                pick  any one from {Voice, MO-Voice only, MT-Voice only, no-voice}

                +

                pick  any one from {Data, MO-Data only, MT-Data only, no-data}

           

 The typical useful examples:

                voice         + no-data                          (wanted, yet not provided)

                voice         + MO-Data                        (may be wanted, yet not provided)

                voice         + Data                               ( used today)

                no-voice    + Data                                (wanted, yet not provide)

                no-voice    + no-data                           (used today)

                MO-Voice + Data                               (may be wanted, yet not provided)

                MO-Voice + MO-Data                        (may be wanted, yet not provided)

Rare services, yet do exist logically

                 MT-Voice + Data

                 voice         + MT-Data  

Why don't we provide more service flexibility to users while we could??

 B. When on vacation I need GSM voice only, don't want to be disturbed by annoying emails time to time because i can not help reading the messages when the red LED is flashing to bug me. Actually I would like all the emails to be flushed to my mobile at my convenience, e.g. at the time after the lunch or supper.

 C. when visiting important friends or in some date, you just need GPRS only service, and never like any incoming calls ringing.

Add a new software application - SoftStackApp with auto-return timer mechanism,  on home Ribbon screen to provide at least four more items/modes for user to select/enable:

          1. (GSM) voice only

          2. (GPRS) data only

          3. Combined (GSM) voice & (GPRS) data services                                  (default)

          4. Not any...
