  • Patent number: 11082456
    Abstract: According to one example, a method includes facilitating communication between a user web application and an entity. The method may be performed by a communication server of a web communication service. The method includes receiving a request from the user web application to communicate with the entity, establishing a communication session between the user web application and an automated agent, obtaining contextual information associated with the communication session, the contextual information including information provided by the user web application, determining that a user of the user web application should be connected with a live agent, and in response to the determining, connecting the user web application with a terminal of an agent associated with the entity. The method further includes providing the live agent associated with the entity with the contextual information.

  • Patent number: 10805419
    Abstract: A method performed by a computing system includes executing a web application container and in response to determining that a runtime web application for the web application container is not locally accessible, prompting a user for credentials. The method further includes sending the credentials to a configuration server and after sending the credentials to the configuration server, receiving a target uniform resource locator (URL). The target URL may point to a runtime web application on a first runtime web application server. The method further includes downloading the runtime web application to the computing system and executing the runtime web application.

  • Patent number: 10708311
    Abstract: The present invention moves service control, including call control, for a user element from a cellular network to a multimedia subsystem (MS), such as the Internet Protocol (IP) Multimedia Subsystem (IMS). Call control is provided by the MS irrespective of whether the user element is using cellular or WLAN access for the call. Call control for originating and terminating calls in the CS or MS as well as transferring calls between a circuit-switched subsystem (CS) and MS is anchored at a continuity control function (CCF) in the MS. All call signaling for the call is passed through the CCF. The CCF is a service provided in the user element's home MS and anchors the user element's active CS calls and MS sessions to enable active roaming across the CS and MS.

  • Patent number: 10356133
    Abstract: The present invention provides a telecom control function in a communication terminal. The telecom control function is configured to receive call indicia when a call tag in a software entity, such as an application or electronic document, is selected by a user of the communication terminal. The call indicia provides information associated with a remote party with which a call is being requested by the user. The telecom control function may use the call indicia along with user indicia obtained from the user and indirectly establish a call with the remote party using a telephony terminal other than the communication terminal. If the communication terminal includes a telecommunication client capable of supporting a call, the telecom control function may instruct the telecommunication client to directly initiate the call with the remote party using the call indicia.

  • Patent number: 10263930
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed for suspending notification messages at a presenter's computer during a presentation. For example, a method comprises: receiving, by an operating system of a computer, a first instruction from a screensharing application to suspend displaying notification messages by the operating system of the computer. The method further comprises sending visual media of a display screen of the computer by the operating system to the screensharing application during a screen sharing communication session. The method further comprises disregarding the request during the screen sharing communication session in accordance with the first instruction, in response to receiving a request from a first application to display a notification message on the display screen.
