Title
(EN) APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR ROUTING COMMUNICATIONS
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCEDE D'ACHEMINEMENT DES COMMUNICATIONS
Abstract
(EN)
A mobile telephone (1) is provided with a look-up table (1000) enabling the mobile telephone to select preferred routes for connecting outgoing calls on the basis of predetermined codes which populate the look-up table. When operating in a cellular communications network a communications channel may thereby be selected from a plurality of available channels and ongoing transmission of an outgoing call may be routed via further networks selected in accordance with the route codes. The look-up table may be stored in a SIM card of the mobile telephone and may be updated via transmission of data from a remote control centre via a cellular network or via a docking station (1300) to which the mobile telephone is releasably connectable. When the call is routed via a packet switching network, the routing code may comprise a string of network node addresses.

L'invention concerne un téléphone mobile (1) pourvu d'une table (1000) de consultation permettant audit téléphone mobile de sélectionner des voies d'acheminement préférées pour la connexion des appels sortants, sur la base de codes prédéterminés stockés dans la table de consultation. En mode de fonctionnement réseau de communication cellulaire, il est ainsi possible de choisir un canal de communication parmi une pluralité de canaux disponibles et d'acheminer l'émission sortante d'un appel sortant via d'autres réseaux sélectionnés en fonction des codes d'acheminement. La table de consultation peut être mémorisée dans la carte d'identification d'abonné (SIM) du téléphone mobile et elle peut être mise à jour par émission de données depuis un central de commande éloigné via un réseau cellulaire ou une station (1300) d'accueil auquel le téléphone mobile peut être relié libérable. Lorsque l'appel est acheminé via un réseau de commutation par paquets, le code d'acheminement peut inclure une séquence d'adresses de noeuds de réseau
