  • Patent number: 7774278
    Abstract: A communication system having a wireless trunk for connecting multiple phone lines over wireless communication links to a cellular network comprises a central telephone switch, such as a private branch exchange or key system, connected through one or more trunk lines to a wireless access communication unit. The wireless access communication unit preferably comprises a separate subscriber interface for each trunk line from the central telephone switch. The wireless access communication unit collects data from each of the subscriber interfaces, formats the data into a format compatible with an over-the-air protocol, and transmits the information over one or more wireless channels to a cellular base station. The wireless access communication unit thereby connects calls received from the central telephone switch's trunk lines over a wireless trunk to a network.

  • Publication number: 20090109946
    Abstract: An “open-host” wireless access system includes a wireless access point (AP) that identifies the SSID from a WLAN connection request. A wireless service provider (WSP) is associated with the SSID. The AP is coupled to a demarcation switch within the access system. The demarcation switch includes a series of ports, where one or more ports are associated with a particular WSP. A WSP can connect equipment such as a router to its associated port or ports. The AP opens a VLAN to the designated port or ports to establish connections to the WSPS equipment based on the SSID. The WSP provides IP address assignments and authentication as a native process on the network such that the user experience is customizable by each WSP. Unique login screens and authentication methods can be employed by each WSP.

  • Patent number: 7003287
    Abstract: In one aspect of the invention, a system for call forwarding includes a telephone subsystem operable to communicate with a telephonic device. The system also includes a wireless subsystem operable to communicate with a mobile station. The mobile station is associated with the telephonic device. The system further includes a packet subsystem coupled to the telephone subsystem and the wireless subsystem. The packet subsystem is operable to instruct the telephone subsystem to forward a telephone call directed at the telephonic device to the packet subsystem after the mobile station registers with the wireless subsystem. The packet subsystem is also operable to communicate the telephone call to the wireless subsystem for delivery to the mobile station.

  • Patent number: 6950650
    Abstract: In one aspect of the invention, a method for call forwarding synchronization includes allowing a telephone subsystem to forward calls for a telephonic device to a first call forwarding destination. The method also includes allowing a wireless subsystem to forward calls for a mobile station to a second call forwarding destination. The mobile station is associated with the telephonic device. The method further includes determining a registration state of the mobile station. In addition, the method includes synchronizing the call forwarding destinations for the mobile station and the telephonic device in response to a change to at least one of the registration state, the first call forwarding destination, and the second call forwarding destination.

  • Patent number: 6816583
    Abstract: In one aspect of the invention, a method for call transferring in a communication system includes establishing a first call connection between a mobile station and a first telephonic device. The mobile station is operable to communicate with a first client, and the first telephonic device is operable to communicate with a second client. The first client is operable to communicate with the second client. The method also includes placing the first telephonic device on hold, and establishing an alerting call connection between the mobile station and a second telephonic device. The second telephonic device is operable to communicate with a third client, and the third client is operable to communicate with the first and second clients. The method further includes instructing the first client to produce ring back tone for the mobile station, and transferring the first telephonic device to the second telephonic device.

  • Patent number: 5491745
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for one-touch recall and dialing of stored telephone or billing account numbers using only the numeric and special keys of a standard 12-key keypad. Upon momentary actuation of a numeric or special key of a standard keypad, the data input is entered into a buffer or directly dialed into a telephone network. If, however, the actuated key is actuated for more than a predetermined amount of time, a previously stored sequence of numbers is retrieved from a memory address location corresponding to the actuated key and is automatically dialed.
