(FR) PROCEDES ET APPAREIL POUR GERER LES APPELS TELEPHONIQUES ET DES INFORMATIONS AFFERENTES
Abstract
(EN)
Telephone call management is provided via a computer network (web) facility (22) which can be remotely accessed by subscribers using web browsers (12). The web facility includes an information database for storing personal telephone directories and call logs, and a telephone call control system coupled to a telephone switch (16) via a switch-computer interface (26). Information on calls to and/or from telephone numbers of subscribers is communicated from the switch to the web facility to be stored in the database without requiring the subscribers' browers to be active. Subscribers can make telephone calls and control telephone communications via the browsers and the web facility. Subscribers do not require any hardware or software in addition to a telephone (10) and web browser.

L'invention se rapporte à la gestion des appels téléphoniques au moyen d'un réseau informatique (d'un service Web) (22) accessible aux abonnés à l'aide de navigateurs Web (12). Le service Web inclut, d'une part, une base de données destinée à stocker des répertoires téléphoniques personnels et des journaux des appels et, d'autre part, un système de commande des appels téléphoniques, couplé à un commutateur téléphonique (16) via une interface commutateur-ordinateur (26). Ledit commutateur communique au service Web des informations sur les numéros de téléphone des abonnés recevant ou faisant des appels afin que ces informations soient stockées dans la base de données; pendant ce temps, les navigateurs des abonnés peuvent rester inactifs. Les abonnés peuvent passer des appels et gérer leurs communications téléphoniques en utilisant leurs navigateurs et le service Web; ils n'ont besoin d'aucun matériel ou logiciel supplémentaire à l'exception d'un téléphone (10) et d'un navigateur Web.
