  • Patent number: 8938062
    Abstract: Service resource items for use in call setup in a telephone system are held on servers that are connected to a computer network which is logically distinct from the telephone system infrastructure; this computer network may, for example, make use of the Internet. Each service item is locatable on the network at a corresponding URI and is associated with a particular telephone number. A mapping is provided between telephone numbers and the URIs of associated service resource items. When it is desired to access a service resource item associated with a particular telephone number, this mapping is used to retrieve the corresponding URI which is then used to access the desired service resource item.

  • Patent number: 7042585
    Abstract: A system and method of brokering a print job between a customer and a plurality of print providers includes defining a network communication link between the customer and a print brokering system controller having a printing capability of each of the print providers registered therewith. The print brokering system controller compares a print request for the print job with the printing capability of each of the print providers and determines which of the print providers have the printing capability to fulfill the print request. As such, the print brokering system controller compiles a list of the print providers which have the printing capability to fulfill the print request.
