A.5 Use case on UE redirection of terminating services

22.2593GPPService requirements for Personal Network Management (PNM)Stage 1TS

A user owns two phones, a PDA, and a notebook. All devices have radio access means to the 3GPP System. Phones and PDA support UTRAN. The notebook allows access via WLAN. The user has subscribed the PNM PN UE redirection and registered all devices in the Personal Network.

In a possible scenario the user is on an airport and must wait for a delayed plane. The user carries the notebook and one of the phones with her/him. The other two devices are left at home. Usually the user does not use the notebook for accessing 3GPP services. However, an Interworked WLAN access network may exist at the airport. Via the WLAN hotspot the user is able to establish a connection to the PLMN. To shorten the waiting time the user wants to utilize the WLAN hotspot for enjoying subscribed 3GPP multimedia services via the notebook. The services are configured for the termination at PDA and phones. The user needs a convenient solution to enable a temporary termination of the services with the notebook in order to benefit from the available advanced multimedia processing capabilities of the notebook and the high speed data access. Depending on the services the user would have to reconfigure either the services or the devices. In case of device reconfiguration a forwarding function would have to be set up at the phones and the PDA for directing services to the notebook. This is not only inconvenient but currently not feasible for the user as a part of the devices is left at home. Furthermore different redirecting settings would be required for CS and IMS. In praxis the complicated manual handling would hamper the flexible use of the available devices. Instead the user wants to switch on the notebook and press a button to activate the notebook for the service termination either temporarily or permanently. Depending on the user preferences the user interface may also offer to activate a specific subscribed service, like a multimedia news service. Beside of the minimized manual interaction the handling would be more natural. When the user wants to do something with a particular device the user does not expect the necessity to configure other entities. After finishing the usage of the multimedia services the user presses the deactivation button to stop a temporary activation. In non-temporary cases the activations are changed by activating one or more other devices at a later point in time. For instance, back at home the user may prefer to use the PDA for receiving the multimedia news. After switch-on the user simply presses the activation software button on the PDA to either receive the news exclusively or simultaneously on the PDA.
