Title
(EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR PROVIDING VOICE MAIL NOTIFICATION FROM A SEPARATE VOICE MAIL SYSTEM TO MOBILE TELEPHONE
(FR) SYSTEMES ET PROCEDES PERMETTANT LA NOTIFICATION DE MESSAGES VOCAUX D'UN SYSTEME DE MESSAGERIE VOCALE INDEPENDANT A UN TELEPHONE MOBILE
Abstract
(EN)
A system for remote notification of new voicemail messages stored in a landline-based voicemail system to a wireless mobile telephone. A telephone switching system (102) forwards an incoming call for a subscriber's landline phone (113) or number to a voicemail system (114) for recording voicemail messages. A message platform (112) monitors the generation of a notification request by the voicemail system that typically causes the telephone switching system to illuminate a message waiting indicator (113) on the subscriber's telephone (104) or provide an audible message waiting indication over the subscriber's line. The message platform, in response to detecting the notification request, outputs an e-mail message via a packet switched network (124) (such as the internet) to a wireless network (132) in communication with a wireless mobile telephone (122) used by the voicemail subscriber. The wireless network, in response to receiving the e-mail message, generates a command for the wireless mobile telephone based on address information supplied in the e-mail message. The command, received by the wireless mobile telephone, causes the wireless mobile telephone to activate a message waiting indicator that notifies the voicemail and wireless mobile telephone subscriber of the new voicemail message at the landline premises.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un système de notification à distance à un téléphone mobile sans fil de la réception de nouveaux messages vocaux mémorisés dans un système de messagerie vocale sur ligne terrestre. Un système de commutation téléphonique (102) transmet un appel entrant, destiné à un téléphone conventionnel (113) ou au numéro d'un abonné, vers un système de messagerie vocale (114) permettant d'enregistrer des messages. Une plate-forme de messagerie (112) surveille la production d'une demande de notification par le système de messagerie vocale, qui entraîne généralement le système de commutation téléphonique à illuminer un indicateur (113) de message en attente sur le téléphone (104) de l'abonné, ou à fournir une indication vocale de la présence du message en attente, sur la ligne de l'abonné. La plate-forme de messagerie, en réponse à la détection de la demande de notification, émet un message électronique, via un réseau à commutation par paquets (124) (tel qu'Internet), vers un réseau sans fil (132) en communication avec un téléphone mobile sans fil (122) utilisé par l'abonné de la messagerie vocale. Le réseau sans fil, en réponse à la réception du message électronique, produit une commande destinée au téléphone mobile sans fil, sur la base de l'information d'adresse fournie dans le message électronique. La commande, reçue par le téléphone mobile sans fil, entraine ce dernier à activer un indicateur de message en attente qui informe l'abonné de la messagerie vocale et dudit téléphone, de l'arrivée du nouveau message vocal mémorisé sur la ligne terrestre.
