Communication speed control system

通信速度控制系统

Abstract

本发明提供一种针对利用便携电话的数据通信的重要连接目的地,间接地催促向通信运营商的设备利用费支付的技术。一种通信速度控制系统(40),配置于因特网(12)上的服务提供服务器(14)与智能手机(10)之间,具备:通信量存储部(58),与服务器的IP地址关联起来储存了智能手机(10)与服务器(14)之间的数据通信量;限定对象外存储部(60),预先将与特定的服务提供运营商有关的服务器(14)的IP地址登记为限定对象外;分组读取部(42),在特定的服务器(14)与智能手机(10)之间进行了分组的交换的情况下,从分组抽出服务器(14)的IP地址;通信量管理部(56),参照通信量存储部(58),计算该IP地址的累积数据通信量;处理规则管理部(54),在累积数据通信量超过阈值,且该IP地址未被登记为限定对象外的情况下,判定为需要限制频带,在累积的数据通信量是阈值以下的情况、以及即使累积的数据通信量超过阈值但该IP地址是限定对象外的情况下,判定为不需要限制频带;以及分组送出部(46),在不需要限制频带的情况下,按照通常的通信速度送出分组,在需要限制频带的情况下,按照低速送出分组。
The invention provides a technique that makes it possible to indirectly induce a major connection destination of data communication by using a mobile telephone to pay charge for equipment usage to a communication provider. A communication speed control system (40), which is disposed between a service providing server (14) on the Internet (12) and a smart phone (10), comprises: a communication amount storage unit (58) in which the amount of data communication between the smart phone (10) and the server (14) has been stored with the amount of data communication associated with the IP address of the server; an out-of-regulation storage unit (60) in which the IP address of the server (14) related to a particular service provider is registered as out-of-regulation; a packet reading unit (42) that extracts the IP address of the server (14) from a packet when the packet has been exchanged between the particular server (14) and the smart phone (10); a communication amount management unit (56) that relates to the communication amount storage unit (58) and calculates an accumulated data communication amount of the IP address; a process rule management unit (54) that determines that a band limitation is necessary when the accumulated data communication amount exceeds a threshold value and the IP address has not been registered as out-of-regulation and that determines that no band limitation is necessary when the accumulated data communication amount is equal to or less than the threshold value and when the IP address is out of regulation even if the accumulated data communication amount exceeds the threshold value; and a packet sending-out unit (46) that sends out the packet at an ordinary communication speed if no band limitation is necessary and that sends out the packet at a lower speed if the band limitation is necessary.
