  • Patent number: 5825769
    Abstract: In a telecommunications network, to provide both statistical reporting functions and reporting on a call by call detail basis, a "TRAFFICVIEW" Server (TVS) system is incorporated with a MCI Traffic Statistics (MTS) system. The TVS is responsive to instructions provided by subscribers so that reports may be provided on a given time period, at a given frequency and in a particular format, as instructed by the subscribers. Standard reports are delivered via E-Mail, fax or hard copy. A subscriber may obtain a static view of the traffic for a special service call number by communicating with the TVS. Moreover, a remote subscriber may download from the TVS a data file which contains raw call details and statistics that he can import to his own reports. Alternatively, a remote subscriber may link up with a real time statistics (RTS) system so that he can monitor the operation of the network, as it relates to calls directed to the subscriber's special service call numbers, in real time.

  • Patent number: 5551025
    Abstract: In a traffic view server (TVS) system in which the traffic through a telecommunications network is monitored, a database system is provided to enable high processing rate for the TVS, both for inserting the data into the system and for extracting the stored data out for reporting purposes. The database system is structured in three pieces, a first one handling statistics data from records that are collected by a traffic statistics system (MTS), a second one handling enhanced call detail records (ECDR) screened from the MTS, and a last one handling common material references. The statistics data are first stored in a fast response electronic storage medium, after they have been segregated into different basic types of statistics data. The thus segregated basic types of statistics data are then combined and forwarded for long term storage in a magnetic storage medium at a brief period of time after a predetermined time interval.
