  • Patent number: 8509218
    Abstract: A method includes receiving, at a session controller, session data from a session-detail record. The session data is associated with at least a portion of a call over a Session over Internet Protocol (SoIP) network. A priority indicator associated with an Internet Protocol (IP) packet transmitted over the call is modified at the session controller based on the session data. The priority indicator indicates a priority to transmit the IP packet.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: September 29, 2006
    Date of Patent: August 13, 2013

  • Patent number: 8259706
    Abstract: A method includes receiving, at a first endpoint, session data associated with a first Internet Protocol (IP) packet. The IP packet is associated with a session within a Session over Internet Protocol (SoIP) network and the session is associated with a call. An instruction, based on the session data, is sent from the first endpoint to a second endpoint. The instruction is configured to trigger the second endpoint to modify a priority indicator associated with at least one of the first IP packet or a second IP packet associated with the call.

  • Patent number: 8204043
    Abstract: A method includes receiving a first media-content packet associated with a first session within a Session over Internet Protocol (SoIP) network. The first media-content packet is associated with a quality-of-service parameter. A transmission priority value associated with the first media-content packet is identified based on a value of the quality-of-service parameter. A priority indicator associated with the first media-content packet and/or a second media-content packet is modified based on the transmission priority value. The priority indicator indicates a priority to transmit the first media-content packet and/or the second media-content packet over a connection within the first session and/or a connection within a second session.
