BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

1. Field of the Invention The present invention relates to a method and apparatus for

procedure and the base station and the terminals are con nected one to one (1:1), thereby reducing a downloading

downloading information from a wireless local loop (WLL) system to terminals and, in particular, to a method for down loading information to a plurality of terminals using a paging channel. 2. Background of the Related Art In general, a mobile communication system implies a com

speed. Accordingly, the related method for downloading information data to the mobile communication terminal has a disadvantage in that terminal subscribers should move to a

downloading area to download information data. To upgrade 20

FIGS. 1 and 2 show the related method for downloading information from the mobile communication system to the mobile communication terminals. FIG. 1 is a block diagram illustrating an apparatus for downloading information to the terminals and FIG. 2 is a ?owchart showing the related method for downloading information to the terminals. Referring to FIG. 1, in order to download information to the terminal, the communication system includes a terminal 10, having a built-in serial port 11, and a base station sub system 40 that communicates to the terminal 10 through a wireless section. The base station subsystem 40 includes a base station 20 and a base station controller 30 for managing the base station 20. In addition, the communication system includes a control device 12 connected to the serial port 11 of the terminal 10, for controlling the terminal 10, and a control device 22 connected to the base station 20, for controlling the base station 20.

for downloading information to mobile communication ter minals through a paging channel. The method includes demanding, at a base station, a download operation to a

mobile station; simultaneously downloading the information and storing it in a plurality of mobile stations through the

paging channel; and resetting the mobile station system using 45

the stored data and reporting a downloading result to the base station side. According to one aspect of the present invention, the mobile communication system downloads the information data to the plurality of mobile communication terminals

50

through the paging channel, thereby ef?ciently controlling the widely-distributed terminals. In addition, software of the terminals canbe easily replaced and expenses and time for maintenance/repair can be remark

ably reduced. 55

The related method for controlling the terminal (mingled with a mobile station) and the base station or upgrading software in the mobile communication system will now be described with reference to FIG. 2. To upgrade the software stored in the terminal 10, the terminal 10 drives a communi cation program and con?rms a normal operation of the serial port 11. The serial port 11 of the terminal 10 is connected to

The objects of the invention may be further achieved in whole or in part by a method of communicating information, including sequentially communicating data messages from a common terminal to distributed terminals, storing the data messages in each of the distributed terminals, and resetting an operational mode of the distributed terminals based on the stored data messages. The common terminal communicates each of the data messages to all of the distributed terminals

FIG. 3 is a block diagram illustrating the WLL system of a mobile communication system in accordance with the pre ferred embodiment of the present invention. The WLL system includes a plurality of terminals 10; a base station 20 com

(ST11). The base station 20 simultaneously downloads the data to the plurality of terminals 10 through the paging chan nel, according to the terminal downloading request of the base station controller 30 (ST12).

The combination of the base station 20 and the base station controller 30 is called a base station subsystem 40. The operation of the WLL system of FIG. 3 will now be explained at length. When a mobile communication subscriber hooks off the terminal 10 in a standby mode, the terminal 10 sends a resource allocation demand to the base station 20 through an access channel. The base station 20 performs the resource allocation according to the request of the terminal 10. The base station 20 also demands a call setup to the exchanging

But, if the subscriber books on the terminal 10, the terminal 10 transmits a cancellation message through the signal chan nel and inactivates the physical channel. In the case of terminating the call, the base station 20 transmits a reception signal to the terminal 10 through the paging channel. If the terminal 10 receives a reception signal request, the terminal 10 transmits a call request message to the base station 20.

Accordingly, the terminals 10 can reset the system with the data stored in the memory.

period of time. 21. The method of claim 15, further comprising: communicating a request from a system controller to the common terminal to doWnload a ?le to the distributed 60

terminals; communicating a doWnload start message from the com mon terminal to the distributed terminals; and

least one of the mobile stations to the base station after resetting the at least one of the mobile stations;

determining the doWnloading result during a predeter

error to the common terminal; and

communicating each of the identi?ed data messages

stored sequentially With associated sequential numbers, except a data message received With an error is stored Without

ti?es a corresponding one of the data messages received by the respective distributed terminal With an error.

18. The method of claim 17, further comprising: communicating, With each of the distributed terminals,

7. The method of claim 5, Wherein the base station resets the at least one of the mobile stations using the doWnloaded data messages When the doWnloaded data messages are received at the at least one of the mobile stations With the normal state. 8. The method of claim 5, Wherein the data messages are

and

65

communicating a doWnload response message from the common terminal to the system controller indicating a status of a doWnload operation, Wherein the doWnload start message includes an identi?cation of a

?le version, a ?le siZe, and a hardWare type.

US RE43,064 E 9 22. The method of claim 15, wherein: the data messages are queued by the common terminal With broadcast messages and reception messages for commu nication to the distributed terminals; and the queued messages are communicated in their respective order of arrival to a queue of the common terminal.

23. A method ofdownloading information comprising: monitoring a paging channel while a terminal is in a

standby mode; receiving a download start message through the paging channel while the terminal is monitoring the paging channel, wherein the download start message is trans

mitted to aplurality ofterminals; receiving information at the terminal, wherein the received information relates to new terminal software; storing the received information in a terminal memory; resetting the terminal based on the stored information that relates to the new terminal software; and

reporting a downloading resultfrom the terminal having the new terminal software.

10 24. The method ofclaim 23, wherein the download start

message includes information ofa version ofa download?le. 25. The method ofclaim 23, wherein the download start message includes information ofa size ofa?le or a kind of hardware. 26. The method of claim 23, wherein the downloading result includes information of a current software version of the terminal. 27. The method ofclaim 23, wherein the received informa tion includes a sequential number

28. The method ofclaim 27, wherein storing the received information includes storing the received information based on the sequential number

29. The method ofclaim 23, wherein reporting the down loading result includes the terminal sending a messagefol

lowing the resetting ofthe terminal. 30. The method ofclaim 23, wherein receiving the infor mation includes receiving a download end message.
