  • Publication number: 20200068024
    Abstract: Equipments and methods for a mediator server controlling communication between clients and service provider(s). Clients are associated with a client identifier address. The mediator uses multiple addresses for receiving communications from the clients regarding the provider(s). The mediator sends to the clients a set of inquiry messages pertaining to the service provider, in a first communication format and associated with a particular reply address. The mediator receives reply message(s) from the clients at the particular reply address, the reply message including the client identifier address and a reply generated at the client terminal device. The mediator sends the client terminal device(s) service continuation information by which the client(s) can continue service provisioning in a second communication format which is different from the first communication format.

  • Patent number: 9167398
    Abstract: This publication discloses a method and system for delivering messages in a telecommunications network (1, 2, 6, 11, 12). In the method a voice-message call attempt is received (43), or a connection is formed to a potential user of a service, on the basis of a voice-message call attempt. According to the invention, as a response to the voice-message connection formed or to the call attempt, to the second part (41) of the connection is sent a text-form message, which initiates a long, logically continuous, temporally discontinuous session N, in such a way that the sender address (e.g., the A number) is converted to correspond to the session number N and the session stage J at the time, and in the message there is at least one selection query.

  • Patent number: RE46685
    Abstract: The invention is an SMS distribution method for inquiries, invitations and proposals in which inquiries are sent to mobile telephone numbers included in a distribution list and their replies are collected as text messages via the SMS service (7) provided by the telecommunications network by means of a software program (1) installed on a server (2). The problem in distributing inquiries with existing SMS services has been the limited possibility of replying to the sending telecommunications operator and separating replies to several inquiries from one another. In the method embodied by this invention, universally reachable mobile network numbers (11) are used as reply addresses for the inquiries, invitations and proposals, and replies are separated from one another by means of reply addresses consisting of public mobile communication network numbers and SMS service numbers and automatically generated reply symbols.
