Abstract

PURPOSE:To minutely decide whether a call is from an opposite party to be allowed to terminate or not in respect of a selective receiving system to select and receive only the necessary call. CONSTITUTION:A PID discriminating part 39 discriminates a PID (unique personal number allotted beforehand to a caller and a subscriber respectively) on the basis of the telephone numbers or the PIDs of a call originating subscriber and a call terminating subscriber from an exchange processing part 36. A receiving method determining part 35 retrieves the data content of a receiving method definition data base 31, and determines a receiving method. The data content is the data in which the PID of the call originating subscriber and the terminating method of a terminating user for this call originating subscriber are made into a pair, and it is stored beforehand in the data base 31 so as to deal with the terminating user. A service executing part 38 executes service in conformity with this data content.

Description

Detailed Description of the Invention

[0001]

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION 1. Field of the Invention The present invention relates to a selective receiving system, and more particularly to a selective receiving system for selecting and receiving only necessary calls.

In recent years, a personal communication system has been studied in which a unique number (PID) for identifying each person is given to all subscribers of the network, and the tracking connection is performed using the unique number (PID). In this personal communication system, even if the called party does not want or cannot accept the incoming call, the incoming call is received.

Therefore, in such a system, it is desired that only necessary calls can be selectively received based on the situation of communication of the caller, the communication identification, and the like.

[0004]

2. Description of the Related Art In the field of wireless communication, conventionally, each wireless communication terminal does not have a function of selectively receiving.
When it is inconvenient to receive an incoming call, the power of the wireless communication terminal is turned off so that the incoming call is not made, or the incoming call is not given. In the field of wired communication, in order to prevent the called party from receiving an incoming call from a specific calling party, a receiving service business provided by an exchange (for example, "prank call repelling reception provided by Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation" By selecting the telephone number of the telephone that you do not want to receive in advance by "service"), it was received selectively.

[0005]

However, in the conventional selective receiving system in the field of wireless communication, although the incoming call is lost by turning off the power of the wireless communication terminal, a call from a necessary partner can be selectively received. There is a problem that you can not. On the other hand, in the conventional selective receiving method in the field of wired communication, if a person who needs to receive an incoming call happens from a telephone that is registered so that the incoming call cannot be received, the incoming call cannot be received.

The present invention has been made in view of the above points,
An object of the present invention is to provide a selective reception method that solves the above problems by making it possible to make a detailed determination as to whether or not the other party is to receive a call.

Stored in the "Caller PID / Receiver's whereabouts / time zone-
An example of a "reception method table" is shown. In this example, even if the called party (PID = 0) is in the office, time 9:
At 30, the incoming calls from both subscribers with PID = 1 and PID = 2 are accepted, but at time 11:00, PID = 2.
Incoming calls from our subscribers connect to voicemail and PID =
Incoming calls from one subscriber are accepted. Even at the time when the callee is in the conference room, at time 13:30, PID =
The incoming call from the subscriber of No. 1 is accepted, and the incoming call from the subscriber of PID = 2 is connected to the voice mail, but at time 15: 0
At 0, incoming calls from both subscribers with PID = 1 and PID = 2 are connected to voicemail.

The above is the case where the receiving method is defined in the database 31, but there may be an incoming call from a sender whose receiving method is not defined. FIG. 9 shows a flowchart for explaining the operation of the second embodiment of the present invention which is effective in this case. In the figure, the PID identification unit 37 converts the telephone numbers of the caller and the receiver into PIDs (step 91) and then searches the database 31. At this time, if the designated service of the originating PID obtained by the above conversion cannot be searched, the receiving method determination unit 35 inquires of the called party (step 9).
2). When the called party (PID = 0) receives an incoming call from the subscriber with PID = 1, for example, as shown in FIG. 10, a menu (a incoming call, b reject, c voice mail, etc.) that the called party can select.
(d transfer) is presented, and the callee is made to select from among them by the code using the HI33. If the called party specifies the code c, for example, the incoming call from the subscriber with PID = 1 is connected to voice mail.

FIG. 11 shows a flowchart for explaining the operation of the third embodiment of the present invention. The present embodiment is characterized in that the receiving method determining knowledge base 34 is used. That is, PI

A case where 0) receives an incoming call from a colleague who has a PID = 1 during a conference in the conference room will be described. In this example, the knowledge base is composed of three types of knowledge (“knowledge about the subscriber”, “knowledge about how to use the receiving method”, and “knowledge about the receiving method”). Caller's PID (in this case,
PID = 0 and PID = 1) are input to "knowledge about the subscriber", the inference result is input to "knowledge about how to use the receiving method", and the inference result is input to "knowledge about the receiving method". Then, the receiving method considered to be the most appropriate is finally selected. In this example, it is determined that an incoming call from a colleague with a low priority should not be accepted during the conference, and voice mail is selected.
