Title
(EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR CORRELATING A UNIQUE IDENTIFIER, SUCH AS A PSTN TELEPHONE NUMBER, TO AN INTERNET ADDRESS TO ENABLE COMMUNICATIONS OVER THE INTERNET
(FR) PROCEDE ET APPAREIL DE CORRELATION D"UN IDENTIFICATEUR UNIQUE, TEL QU"UN NUMERO DE TELEPHONE RTPC, A UNE ADRESSE INTERNET POUR PERMETTRE DES COMMUNICATIONS SUR L"INTERNET
Abstract
(EN)
A directory service, containing unique identifiers (e.g., telephone numbers) and related Internet address(es), accessible through the Internet. An Internet-enabled communication system, such as IP-PBX or voice mail system, accepts a telephone number as a destination address. It then contacts the directory service and requests the Internet address related to that telephone number. The communication system uses the Internet address to set up a delivery path via the Internet to the destination. Thus, all time-dependent charges normally associated with message delivery by the telephone network can be avoided.
(FR)
L"invention concerne un service d"annuaire renfermant des identificateurs uniques (par exemple des numéros de téléphones) et des adresses internet connexes, accessibles par internet. Un système de communications activé par internet, tel que IP-PBX ou un système de messagerie vocale, accepte un numéro de téléphone comme adresse destinataire. Il prend ensuite contact avec le service d"annuaire et demande l"adresse internet correspondant audit numéro de téléphone. Le système de communications utilise l"adresse internet pour établir un chemin de livraison vers le destinataire par le biais d"internet. Ainsi, tous les frais fonction du temps, normalement associés à la livraison de messages par le réseau téléphonique, peuvent être évités.
