  • Patent number: 7540765
    Abstract: The present integrated DSLAM to POTS splitter connector comprises a first set of wires each having a first end terminating in a first 50-pin connector for connecting to the DSLAM and second end terminating in a 64-pin connector for connecting to a first POTS splitter, one of the wires terminates in a first DPM; a second set of wires each having a first end terminating in a second 50-pin connector for connecting to the DSLAM, a second end terminating in a 64-pin connector for connecting to a second POTS splitter, one of the wires terminates in the first DPM and another in a second DPM; and a third set of wires each having a first end terminating in a third 50-pin connector for connecting to the DSLAM, a second end terminating in a 64-pin connector for connecting to a third POTS splitter, one of the wires terminates in second DPM.

  • Publication number: 20090132256
    Abstract: A first communication path for receiving a communication is established. The communication includes speech, which is processed. A speech pattern is identified as including a voice-command. A portion of the speech pattern is determined as including the voice-command. That portion of the speech pattern is separated from the speech pattern and compared with a second speech pattern. If the two speech patterns match or resemble each other, the portion of the speech pattern is accepted as the voice-command. An operation corresponding to the voice-command is determined and performed. The operation may perform an operation on a remote device, forward the voice-command to a remote device, or notify a user. The operation may create a second communication path that may allow a headset to join in a communication between another headset and a communication device, several headsets to communicate with each other, or a headset to communicate with several communication devices.

  • Publication number: 20090129569
    Abstract: In order to enable several wearable devices to communicate with several communication devices over a range of types of networks simultaneously, the illustrative embodiments provide a communication base system and method of using that communication base system. The communication base system includes several network-side transceivers in which each transceiver is configured to communicate with a communication device, a set of user-side transceivers in which each transceiver is configured to communicate with a headset, and a communication path to provide communications between a network-side adapter and a user-side adapter. A processing unit coupled to the communication path is configured to process instructions, where the instructions enable communication between the headset and the communication device without the headset being associated with the communication device.
