  • Publication number: 20180232920
    Abstract: Systems and methods for providing contextually aware location selections for teleconference monitor views are presented. A system can be configured to provide different user interfaces with each user interface associated with a category of functionality. For instance, one user interface may provide document editing functionality for editing a document, and another user interface may provide instant messaging functionality. When a user is engaged in a teleconference session, techniques presented herein enable a system to dynamically select a location for rendering of the teleconference session depending on the category of functionality being utilized by the user. A size and display properties of a display are of the teleconference session can also be determined based on a selected category of functionality.

  • Patent number: 9456333
    Abstract: A mobile device utilizes a two-stage dialing solution when roaming on a visited mobile operator (MO) network to implement centralized routing so that a home network portion of a hybrid network is inserted into the path of outbound calls. A remote centralized routing (CR) service interoperates with a CR client on the mobile device. When a call is initiated to a remote party, the CR client calls into an arbitrary roaming routing number that is terminated in the home network. Once the call is connected between the mobile device and home network, the CR client sends a dialing string that includes a destination number of the remote party. The CR service calls the destination number and then bridges the calls to the mobile device and remote party to establish an end-to-end call path between the local and far ends of the call that traverses the home network.

  • Publication number: 20150200786
    Abstract: Techniques for accessing and configuring meeting attributes are described. In at least some embodiments, a meeting object is leveraged to store meeting attributes and pointers to meeting-related content. A meeting object, for instance, can serve as a manifest for meeting attributes. According to various embodiments, different entities (e.g., applications, services, and so forth) can access a meeting object to ascertain and/or configure meeting attributes for a meeting. For instance, a meeting application programming interface (API) can be employed to enable different entities to interact with a meeting object in various ways.

  • Patent number: 9065903
    Abstract: Architecture for a communications system enabling a user to provision a telephone at a new location without network administrative pre-configuring. An input component (e.g., keypad) receives a numeric extension and PIN. The extension is a telephone extension of the user and the PIN can be administratively assigned. A location component provides location information of an enterprise communications server to the telephone based on the extension. The telephone uses the location information to send messages to the enterprise communications server. A registration component registers the telephone with the enterprise communications server based on the numeric extension. A telephony address is returned to the telephone. An authentication component authenticates the telephone based on the PIN. Upon authentication, the extension is assigned to the telephone, and telephone communications can be sent and received from that location.

  • Patent number: 8688719
    Abstract: A data structure that includes a user profile including user profile information, and a data structure comprising a set of available telephone numbers can be accessed. A targeted list of one or more telephone numbers can be generated using the set of available telephone numbers and information from the user profile. The targeted list can include one or more telephone numbers from the set of available telephone numbers that match at least a portion of the user profile information. Also, the targeted list can be sent to a rendering computing environment for display. User input selecting a telephone number from the targeted list can be received. In response to user input, the selected telephone number can be associated with a user profile in a data structure.

  • Patent number: 8666052
    Abstract: A universal phone number is provided for connecting to communication methods, including fixed line, mobile line, and internet communication methods. A communication group of communication methods may include multiple communication methods belonging to one individual or to multiple individuals within the communication group, such as a family. The universal phone number may be designated as the primary contact number for the communication group such incoming phone calls and text messages may be automatically routed to the communication methods in the communication group. The universal phone number may provide alerts to the multiple communication methods for notifying when incoming phone calls are answered. A universal voicemail box may also be provided for a scenario when the incoming call is not answered. Additionally, the universal phone number may provide the ability to keep the contact information for each of the individual communication methods private.

  • Patent number: 8315165
    Abstract: Enhanced communication systems with various resiliency and survivability aspects are provided. Data center, cluster, network, and load balancer survivability are provided for seamless communication experience in case of data center, cluster, discovery infrastructure, or hardware load balancer failures. Call, data, and authentication survivability are provided through dynamic re-routing over alternative networks, continuous data replication, and alternative authentication mechanisms. Seamless failover is ensured through use of identical signaling protocols and data carried by protocols between primary and backup clusters. Voicemail resiliency is achieved by re-routing calls directed to voicemail over alternative paths such as PSTN connections.

  • Publication number: 20110307541
    Abstract: Resilient load balancing servers in an enhanced communication system is provided mitigating server failures or scheduled shutdowns. A repeatable but virtually random sequence of servers is generated for a given pool of homogeneous servers based on a user identifier in a request message. If a request cannot be routed to a first choice server, for any reason, then subsequent servers in the sequence are selected. A communication protocol within the system is adapted to permit an individual server to indicate that it cannot accept new requests. Following the indication from the server, traffic associated with existing dialogs is allowed to continue to be processed by the server, but new dialogs are directed to other servers.
