(54) Title (FR): MODIFICATION D'EN-TÊTE À DES FINS DE SERVICES SUPPLÉMENTAIRES

(57) Abstract:
(EN): Handling supplementary services offered in association with Internet Protocol multimedia services based on particular policies is described. In an example, server(s) can receive, from a first user device, a policy associated with handling one or more communications directed to a particular identifier. The server(s) can subsequently receive a communication from a second user device, the communication being associated with a header identifying the particular identifier as the intended recipient of the communication. The server(s) can determine whether the policy is to be applied to the communication and, based at least partly on determining that the policy is to be applied to the communication, the server(s) can update the header based at least in part on the policy. The server(s) can transmit the communication based at least in part on the header, thereby transmitting the communication pursuant to the policy.
(FR): L'invention concerne une gestion de services supplémentaires offerts en association avec des services multimédias sur protocole Internet basés sur des politiques particulières. Selon un exemple, un ou plusieurs serveurs peuvent recevoir, d'un premier dispositif d'utilisateur, une politique associée à une gestion d'une ou de plusieurs communications adressées à un identifiant particulier. Le ou les serveurs peuvent ensuite recevoir une communication d'un second dispositif d'utilisateur, la communication étant associée à un en-tête identifiant l'identifiant particulier en tant que destinataire prévu de la communication. Le ou les serveurs peuvent déterminer si la politique doit être appliquée à la communication et, sur la base au moins en partie de la détermination du fait que la politique doit être appliquée à la communication, le ou les serveurs peuvent mettre à jour l'en-tête sur la base, au moins en partie, de la politique. Le ou les serveurs peuvent transmettre la communication sur la base, au moins en partie, de l'en-tête, transmettant ainsi la communication conformément à la politique.
