  • Patent number: 9769318
    Abstract: A non-transitory computer-readable medium can include instructions for performing a method that includes, in response to an activation user input at a mobile device associated with a teleconference event, automatically joining the mobile device to the teleconference event. The mobile device can join the teleconference event by retrieving stored call-in details for the teleconference event, and sending, from the mobile device to a remote proxy, the call-in details for the teleconference event. The method can also include connecting the mobile device to the teleconference event via a call path that is established in response to the sending.

  • Patent number: 9756530
    Abstract: A mobile client can include a first voice interface to communicate over a first network and a second voice interface to communicate over a second network. The mobile client includes a data interface to perform signaling with a private branch exchange (PBX) of an enterprise system and a call control. The call control can determine that an established media session between the mobile client and a third party requires a handoff from the first network to the second network and signal the PBX to establish parameters for the handoff via the data interface. The call control can also perform the handoff of the established media session between the mobile client and the third party to the second network according to the parameters.

  • Patent number: 9226167
    Abstract: Methods, apparatuses, and systems directed to facilitating troubleshooting wireless connectivity issues in a wireless network. In accordance with one embodiment of the present invention, either a diagnostic supplicant in the wireless client or a diagnostic manager initiates a troubleshooting protocol between the diagnostic supplicant and the diagnostic manager over a diagnostic link in response to one or more events. In one embodiment, after the diagnostic supplicant establishes a link to a diagnostic manager via a diagnostic link, the diagnostic supplicant generates and transmits a problem report to the diagnostic manager. The problem report initiates a troubleshooting protocol between the diagnostic manager and the diagnostic supplicant.

  • Patent number: 9204359
    Abstract: In one embodiment a mobile client includes a first voice interface configured to communicate voice media via a first radio technology. A second voice interface is configured to communicate voice media via a second radio technology, which is different from the first radio technology. A data interface can communicate data via at least one of the first radio technology and the second radio technology. Call control is programmed to control the data interface to perform signaling from the mobile client for establishing parameters for a voice media session between the mobile client and a third party via a selected one of the first voice interface and the second voice interface The call control controls the signaling from the mobile client depending on which of the first voice interface and the second voice interface the call control determines to utilize for the voice media session.

  • Patent number: 9161185
    Abstract: A non-transitory computer readable medium can include instructions for performing a method. The method can include receiving, at a mobile client, an enterprise call from an enterprise system in response to an incoming call from a calling party to the enterprise system. The method can also include determining, at the mobile client, whether the enterprise call is anchored in the enterprise system. If the enterprise call is determined to be anchored in the enterprise system, a confirmation message can be provided from the mobile client to the enterprise system in response to the enterprise call being answered for voice communication at the mobile client.

  • Patent number: 8619681
    Abstract: A non-transitory computer-readable medium can include includes instructions to perform dynamic call anchoring. The instructions can include call anchor logic programmed to determine if an outbound call leg being initiated from a mobile unit should be anchored at an anchor point based on evaluating anchoring criteria to input data. The call anchor logic can providing an anchor control signal to cause the outbound call leg to be one of (i) anchored at the anchor point or (ii) connected to a called party without anchoring at the anchor point. The anchor point can correspond to a node in an associated private network where the outbound call leg and another call leg are connected together that is outside of a service provider network for the mobile unit.

  • Patent number: 8521137
    Abstract: A method for utilizing a common voicemail box for a fixed-mobile convergence device includes automatically providing a confirmation message from a mobile client to an enterprise system in response to an enterprise call from the enterprise system being answered by a user at the mobile client. An incoming call from a calling party is connected with the mobile client in response to the confirmation message being received by the enterprise system to indicate that the enterprise call has been answered by the user at the mobile client. The incoming call is connected to a voicemail box associated with the mobile client (e.g., enterprise voicemail) in response to determining that the user did not answer the incoming call at the mobile client.
