  • Patent number: 8401545
    Abstract: In a communication system comprising multiple networks, a system is provided for re-establishing a dropped call, involving subscribers of possibly different networks, between a user A who has been unintentionally-disconnected from a communication network and a user B who is the other party to the call. The system includes a database, a detection task module, re-establishment task modules and a task manager module. The call is re-established after complete tear-down of the dropped call in both users' networks.

  • Patent number: 8401159
    Abstract: Uploading data to a call connection service by providing data records associated with a call destination in a user-selected manner. Navigation instructions are obtained concerning a particular data record in response to the data navigation instructions. An indication is received to upload the call destination associated with the particular record to the call connection service. In response to the indication, a routine is executed to acquire a portion of the data record and upload the portion to the call connection service in a format suitable for handling. Alternatively, data can be provided to the call completion service in an automated manner, including in response to an unconnectability condition detected during the call process, either during call initiation or after the call has been connected, and when calls are received at a secondary user device.

  • Patent number: 8379820
    Abstract: Connecting a caller with a plurality of destinations using a destination list received from a caller or a designated user. Attempts are made to connect the caller with each of the destinations in the stored destination list, with each attempt including a connectability query to determine whether either the caller or the destination is connectable. Thereafter, the other party is called and offered a connection attempt to the first party. If the second party accepts, a call is made to the first party. If the first party is indeed connectable and answers the call, a connection is established between the two parties. Once the destination list is stored, attempts to connect the caller with each destination can be separately initiated or paused. Furthermore, the stored destination list can be edited even after connection attempts have been initiated.

  • Patent number: 8374323
    Abstract: In a communication system comprising multiple networks, a system is provided for notifying a caller that a call destination who was initially unavailable is now available, involving subscribers of possibly different networks. The system, when installed in a network, can support destination availability notifications following failed call attempts in which at least one user is a user of the network, regardless to which network the other user subscribes.

  • Patent number: 8243914
    Abstract: A method and system for hierarchical prioritization and execution of call completion services are provided. When a caller applies for a call completion service, the caller is identified and assigned a priority from among different priorities such as high priority or regular priority. Thereafter, attempts to execute call completion services are performed hierarchically by launching call completion services for callers having a higher priority before similar attempts are performed for callers of a lower priority. Hence, call completion services are handled according to the priority assigned to the callers rather than the order in which each caller applied for a call completion service.

  • Publication number: 20110230196
    Abstract: Reconnecting a dropped call between two parties by detecting an unintentional disconnection of one connection of the call using a system connected to a network associated with at least one of the parties to the call. A detection task receives the number identifications of the two parties; receives a release message associated with the call; and tests a cause-indicator in the received release message to determine a match to a prescribed criterion. In response to a match, a portion of the set of resources allocated to the call by the entities in a network of the party that was not unintentionally disconnected from the network are preserved while permitting release of all other resources allocated to the call. A reconnection task executes to ultimately reconnect the dropped party using at least the preserved portion of the set of resources allocated to the original call. A system is also described.

  • Patent number: 7970107
    Abstract: A method and system for providing a call completion service for a call between a caller and a destination over a network. Outgoing and Incoming call profiles, identifying enabled call completion services, are associated with callers and destinations, and are retrieved from a database based on the particular caller and destination. The caller and destination profiles are compared to select the appropriate call completion service for the call. In the absence of retrieving an outgoing call profile and an incoming call profile, a default profile can be generated and associated with the respective party to enable determination of the call completion service. The determination is made, at least in part, on the basis of a common call completion service identified as being enabled in both the OCP and the ICP. Additionally, a hierarchy of call completion services can be further considered in the determination of the call completion service.

  • Patent number: 7515904
    Abstract: A method for connecting a caller to a called destination when the destination is initially unreachable comprises the steps of receiving in a communication network a call origination from the caller to the unreachable destination, determining if the caller and destination are not busy and also are available to receive a call, and, when both are available and not busy, notifying the caller that the destination is available and subsequently making the connection. The system is particularly adapted for use with cellular networks wherein destination numbers are frequently unavailable because they are off, out of range, or due to insufficient network resources. The system does not rely upon cellular registration to determine if a destination is available but instead attempts to access the destination direction directly to ensure that the call can actually be completed before the caller is notified.
