  • Patent number: 10115135
    Abstract: A system and method which overcome the limitations of online charging systems which do not natively support redirection functionality. In an embodiment of the invention a SCIM provides the added redirection functionality to online charging systems which do not natively support redirection functionality. The SCIM supports redirection of a user session to a process application in a manner which allows the user to easily continue with the activity the user was engaged. If selected criteria are met the SCIM can update credit control answers (CCA) with redirection information to redirect the session to an application.

  • Patent number: 9241019
    Abstract: In accordance with various embodiments, systems and methods that provide unified user interaction across different network interfaces are provided. A system can include a service control interaction manager (SCIM) which is operable to manage communication between one or more call parties and one or more applications. In a global system for mobile communications (GSM) network, when the one or more IP multimedia subsystem (IMS) applications connect a call party to a media resource, the SCIM is configured to connect the call party to a mobile switching center (MSC) internal resource function, receive a message from the one or more IMS applications which indicates an announcement to play to the call party and/or information to be collected from the call party, mediate the message into native customized applications for mobile networks enhanced logic (CAMEL) operations for the GSM network, and play the announcement and/or collect information indicated in the message.

  • Patent number: 9241250
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention provide a system and method which overcome the limitations of CAMEL systems which do not natively support reauthorization functionality. The system and method provide a mediation mechanism by which an online charging systems that supports reauthorization functionality can run using the mediation mechanism over CAMEL system. The mediation mechanism provides a means for added user credits to be utilized and allows the user to continue with the activity in which the user was engaged. This is advantageous both to the user and the service provider.

  • Patent number: 8954559
    Abstract: Systems and methods provide unified playing of announcements across different network interfaces. A system to extend an IMS SCIM to enable application servers using MSCML to play announcements to execute on WIN (CDMA) networks include an application server, including IMS applications. The system includes a SCIM to manage communication between call parties and the applications. In a CDMA network, which an open dialogue the SCIM is configured to respond to the IMS applications that then can play the announcement, receive a second message which indicates the announcement to play from the IMS applications, buffer the announcement indicated, and respond with a message to the IMS applications as if the announcements have been played.

  • Patent number: 8949441
    Abstract: In accordance with various embodiments, systems and methods that improve communication with a media server are provided. Such a system can include a plurality of applications, executing on one or more application servers. The system can also include a media server which is operable to play announcements requested by the plurality of applications to one or more parties in a call; and a SCIM. The SCIM is operable to buffer requests from the plurality of applications to play the announcements. When an application in a chain of applications requests that an announcement be played to a party, the SCIM can buffer the request, communicate with each remaining application in the chain of applications and buffer any requests to play an additional announcement to the party, open a connection to the media server, and instruct the media server to play each announcement associated with each buffered request.

  • Patent number: 8924557
    Abstract: In accordance with various embodiments, systems and methods that integrate threshold management into a SCIM/Service Broker are provided. Such a system can include a plurality of applications, executing on one or more application servers. The system can also include a SCIM/Service Broker which is operable to manage a threshold set by the applications. Each application can determine an application threshold, a current threshold and a met threshold. When an application receives a message from the SCIM/Service Broker, the application can determine if the met threshold exists and, if the met threshold exists, update the application threshold accordingly. The application can also determine if the application threshold has been met, and if the application threshold has been met, execute business logic associated with the application threshold and set a new application threshold. The application sends a request to SCIM/Service Broker requesting a new current threshold value be set.
