Title (EN) REAL TIME CELLULAR PHONE RENTAL SYSTEM AND METHOD
(FR) SYSTEME ET PROCEDE DE LOCATION DE TELEPHONES CELLULAIRES EN TEMPS REEL
Abstract:
(EN) Cellular telephone rental system and method wherein a point-of-purchase rental terminal (330) capturing transaction data, obtains validation thereof, and communicates same to a collector (220) which in turn instructs a switching system (108) to enable the cellular phone (101) to make and receive calls. The collector (220) examines in real time automatic message accounting data (110) in the switching system (108) and calculates call charges in real time. The collector (220) then transmits call data to the rental terminal (330) which provides both rental agency and the cellular phone (101) user call data in real time, with the call data also being transmitted to an account administration system nightly (440).
(FR) Système et procédé de location de téléphones cellulaires selon lequel un terminal de location au point d'achat (330) saisissant les données relatives aux transactions obtient la validation desdites données et les communique à une unité de collecte (220) qui, à son tour, donne à un système de commutation (108) l'ordre de permettre au téléphone cellulaire (101) d'envoyer et de recevoir des appels. L'unité de collecte (220) examine en temps réel les données de la comptabilité automatique des messages (110) dans le système de commutation (108) et calcule les taxes d'appel en temps réel. L'unité de collecte (220) transmet ensuite les données d'appel au terminal de location (330) qui fournit à la fois à l'agence de location et à l'utilisateur du téléphone cellulaire (101) les données d'appel en temps réel, les données d'appel étant également transmises de nuit à un système d'administration des comptes (440).
