Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR IMPLEMENTING A COMPUTER NETWORK/INTERNET TELEPHONE SYSTEM
(FR) PROCEDE ET APPAREIL DE MISE EN ×UVRE D'UN SYSTEME DE TELEPHONIE PAR INTERNET OU PAR RESEAU INFORMATIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) A method and apparatus are provided for communicating audio information over a computer network (214). A standard telephone (202) connected to PSTN (210) can communicate with any other PSTN-connected telephone (204), where a computer network, such as the Internet (214), is the transmission facility instead of conventional telephone transmission facilities. The caller dials the number of an access port (206) for the computer network and transmits the number of the called party when connected to the port. The port receives the number of the called party and establishes a two-way, full-duplex communication link via the computer network (214) to a corresponding remote access port or specialized computer system (216) in the vicinity of the called party (204). The port at the receiving end is connected to the local PSTN in the region of the called party, and uses the local PSTN to connect the call to the called party.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un procédé et un appareil permettant la transmission d'informations audio par un réseau informatique (214). Un téléphone classique (202) raccordé à un RTPC (210) peut communiquer avec un autre téléphone (204) raccordé à un RTPC, le réseau informatique, Internet (214) par exemple, intervenant comme installation de transmission en remplacement des installations classiques de transmission téléphonique. Le demandeur compose le numéro d'un port d'accès (206) au réseau informatique, et, lorsqu'il est connecté au port, transmet le numéro de l'interlocuteur appelé. Le port prend en compte le numéro de l'interlocuteur appelé et établit, via le réseau informatique (214), une liaison de communication bidirectionnelle en duplex intégral à destination d'un port d'accès à distance correspondant ou d'un système informatique spécialisé (216) situé près de l'interlocuteur appelé (204). Le port de l'extrémité réceptrice, qui est connecté au RTPC local de la région de l'interlocuteur appelé, utilise le RTPC local pour établir la connexion avec l'interlocuteur appelé.
