This prior art search report presents the mappings of the various elements of claim 1 of U.S. Patent No. 8,861,512 (‘512 Patent), titled “Method of enabling a wireless device to make a network connection without using a network operator’s home location register”, from assignee Coretek Licensing LLC, published on 14 October 2014.
The patent discloses a wireless device able to initiate a network connection without using a network operator’s home location register. The wireless device sends data to a server that defines a call request, and the server decides on the appropriate routing over all available networks for that call request. But, unlike a conventional HLR, the server can receive communications from the device using any one of several different protocols, and is not limited to the MAP (mobile application part) protocol. For example, the wireless device can use SMS or HTTP over the internet to communicate with the server. The server then determines the appropriate least cost routing.
