  • 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: 7804816
    Abstract: Service resource items (49) for use in call setup in a telephone system are held on servers (58) 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 (49) 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 (49) associated with a particular telephone number, this mapping is used to retrieve the corresponding URI (step 55) which is then used to access the desired service resource item (56, 57, 59).

  • Patent number: 7359978
    Abstract: To enable controlled, secure connections using a versatile protocol such as TCP/IP to be established through a firewall and proxy server, the versatile protocol is tunnelled using HTTP. Client to server communications are effected using an HTTP POST operation. Server to client communications are effected using an HTTP GET operation to establish a tunnelled socket; this socket is closed within an interval less than any timeout imposed by the proxy server and immediately re-established by another GET operation, irrespective of whether data continue to be pending for communication to the client. A globally-unique ID is included in each POST and GET message to enable related messages to be recognized.

  • Publication number: 20070237357
    Abstract: One embodiment of a method of tracking a plurality of targets can be broadly summarized by the following steps: capturing a plurality of images of a plurality of targets with a plurality of image capture devices; generating a target observation for each target, said target observation including at least a visual signature of the target and a time value; partitioning target observations according to similarities in their visual signatures; and producing primary tracks from the partitioned target observations, wherein each primary track includes ordered sequences of observation events having similarities in their visual signatures. Other methods and systems are also provided.

  • Publication number: 20060062548
    Abstract: One embodiment of a method of refining a plurality of primary tracks of a plurality of targets can be broadly summarized by the following steps: receiving a plurality of primary tracks, wherein each primary track includes ordered sequences of observation events having similarities in their visual signatures; dividing the primary tracks into separate refinement packages; allocating the refinement packages to different ones of a plurality of processors; and receiving one or more refined tracks from the plurality of processors. Other methods and systems are also provided.
