In general, when a caller attempts to make a phone call in an existing mobile communication network, the receiver of the called subscriber adopts a method of giving a uniform ringback tone to the caller. However, such a conventional ringback tone method uses a uniformly identical tone. Since the caller cannot determine whether there is a misconnection until the answer of the called party, there is also a problem that can not provide a variety of ringback tone replacement service to meet the characteristics of the user.

On the other hand, in recent years, a method of listening to various advertisement sounds instead of the uniform ringback tone has been proposed, but this also gives a caller a specific advertisement sound selected by a network operator without a subscriber's option and then a predetermined time. Since it is a way to make a free call for a while, the caller cannot determine whether there is a misconnection until the answer of the called party, and furthermore, there is a problem in that it cannot provide various ringback tone services that match the characteristics of the user.

The present invention has been made to solve the above-mentioned conventional problems, and an object thereof is to provide a caller with a specific sound registered or selected by a called subscriber instead of the existing ringback tone, so that the caller determines whether there is a misconnection before the answer of the called party. In the subscriber-based ringback tone service, which is designed to provide a variety of ringback tone replacement sounds in accordance with the characteristics of the called subscriber, in particular, it is possible to present a sound source as the specific sound to the subscriber. It is to provide a method and apparatus for presenting a sound source in a ringback tone service.

1 is a block diagram of a subscriber-based ringback tone service apparatus according to the present invention.

1, the apparatus of the present invention comprises a home location register (HLR) 10; Switchboards (O_MSC / VLR, T_MSC / VLR) (31,32) that communicate with the home location register (HLR) 10 via a No.7 network (20) based on a Signaling Transfer Protocol (STP). ; A sound source providing device (Intelligent Peripheral: IP) 50 connected to the No. 7 network 20 and communicating with the exchanges 31 and 32 via a gateway (CGS) 40; A sound source providing control server (IP server) 70 for data communication with the sound source providing apparatus 50 via the Internet network 60; A subscriber database (80) connected to the home location register (10) via the internet network (60); It is composed of a Web server (Web Server) 100 connected to the Internet network 60 via a gateway 90 to communicate with the sound source providing apparatus 50 and the sound source providing control server 70.

The home location register (10) has all the functions as an existing network component, and receives the first information on the presence or absence of ringback tone replacement and the second information for routing to the sound source providing device (50). A function which has a preset function as profile information for is newly added, and the information is set and stored as additional service subscription information of the called party profile.

The exchanges 31 and 32 have all functions as existing network components, and communicate with the home location register 10 when registering a destination subscriber to receive and store the predetermined first and second information. Receiving a sound source for replacing a ringback tone by communicating with the sound source providing apparatus 50 based on the stored first and second information when a call connection request of a called subscriber is received, and replacing the received sound source with the caller. It also has a negatively provided feature.

The sound source providing device 50 stores various sound sources and is connected to the exchanges 31 and 32 via the gateway 40 to communicate with the exchange sources 31 to provide the stored sound sources to the exchanges 31 and 32. Has characteristics.

The sound source providing control server 70 communicates with the sound source providing device 50 via the Internet network 60, so that the sound source providing device 50 is provided to the switchboards 31 and 32. The type is specified based on a combination of identification information of the called subscriber who is requested to make a call connection, identification information of the caller corresponding to the call connection, and / or call connection request time zone information (e.g. Each specific condition such as age, gender, occupation, and / or time zone, etc.), for example, a code is given to various sound sources stored in the sound source providing device 50, and the called party When signing up or changing the information, select the caller, sender group, call time zone, etc., and specify the corresponding sound source. The sound source providing apparatus 50 is controlled so that the corresponding sound source is provided on the exchange 32 side.

The web server 100 is connected to the sound source providing apparatus 50 or the sound source providing control server 70 via the Internet network 60, to add the sound source stored in the sound source providing apparatus 50 or In order to change the information (specific caller, caller group, call time zone, etc.) and the corresponding sound source code for the sound source specification of the sound source providing control server 70, which is provided by the subscriber in the web server 100 This can be done via a web page.

The operation of FIG. 1 will be described.

When a called subscriber who wants to use a specific sound transmission service applies to a service provider to which he / she belongs, it is registered in the service provider subscriber database 80 and registered in the service provider subscriber database 80 as a home location register 10 which is an element in the network. , The home location register 10 sets the corresponding service in its subscriber database, and service information when the location registration procedure occurs from the home location register 10 to the corresponding switching service (Serving switch) 31 or 32 that is currently moving. And routing data that can be set to a call source providing device (IP) 50, and the switch 32 sets the received service information and routing data in the corresponding subscriber service data. Therefore, when the calling subscriber requests a call establishment from the called subscriber, the called exchange 32 detects that a specific sound source transmission service is set based on the set service information, and uses the routing data to transmit the call to the sound source providing apparatus 50. At the same time as the call connection, the called subscriber is informed that the incoming call is introduced (Paging). In this case, the sound source providing apparatus 50 interoperates with the sound source providing control server (IP Server) 70 and inquires about which sound source is set by the corresponding subscriber. The sound source providing control server 70 transfers a code for a particular sound source from the subscriber to the sound source providing apparatus 50. The sound source providing apparatus 50 transmits the sound source for the corresponding code in place of the existing ringback tone so that the caller can listen to the sound source until the called subscriber responds. When the called party receives the incoming call, the called exchange 32 disconnects the call route set by the sound source providing device 50 and connects the called party and the calling party to perform telephone communication.

Subsequently, the subscriber-based ringback tone service method according to the present invention will be described. However, since the present invention is applied to the apparatus of the present invention, it will be described in parallel with its operation.

2 is a flowchart illustrating a service subscription procedure in a subscriber-based ringback tone service method according to the present invention.

First, if there is a subscription request for the service of the present invention, that is, the subscriber-based ringback tone service (S201), it is stored in the subscriber storage database 80 that the service is subscribed to the requestor (ie, the requester's telephone number) according to the request. In addition, the subscription information (including a phone number) is transmitted from the database 80 to the home location register 10 (S202), and the subscriber profile of the home location register 10 subscribes to the service of the present invention. It is set (S203). In addition, new subscriber information including the new subscriber's telephone number and the type of sound source selected by the subscriber is transferred from the database 80 to the sound source providing control server 70 at the time of subscription (S204), and the sound source providing control server 70 is provided. On the basis of the received new subscriber information, and allocates the code of the selected sound source in association with the telephone number of the new subscriber (S205).

On the other hand, in step S205, if the new subscriber information includes information for specifying to send a different sound source for each called party, for each caller group, for each caller, etc., the sound source codes are separately assigned. .

Then, the home location register 10, if there is a location registration request message (Registration Notification) coming from the destination exchange (32) (S206), by checking the subscriber profile is a location registration request from the service subscriber of the present invention (i.e. After confirming that the location registration request terminal is subscribed to the service of the present invention (S207), if it is not a subscriber, only the response message for location registration is given to the destination exchange 32 in the same manner as the existing method (S208-). 1), in the case of the subscriber, the service setting information of the present invention and the routing information to the sound source providing device 50 (for example, a number that can be routed to the sound source providing device 50: RoutingDigits) in the response message for the location registration. The terminal is lowered to the destination exchange 32 so that the destination exchange 32 has the corresponding information (S208-2).

As an example of the method of transmitting the service configuration information, as shown in FIG. 6, a reserved field of the additional service parameter CallingFeaturesIndicator2 is used as a ringback tone field (Specific RingBackTone: SRBT) to the SRBT field. Two bits of data (eg, '10' is a service subscription but is inactive, '11' is a service subscription and active) are included in the location registration response message and are included in the location registration response message from the home location register 10. Is passed to 32. For reference, the VMSB field of FIG. 6 has a Voice Mail Service Busy state, the VMSU field has a Voice Mail Service Busy Unconditional state, and the VMSNA field has a Voice Mail Service Busy Answerer. (Voice Mail Service Busy No Answer) status, FMSNA field is Fax Mail Service No Answer status, FMSB field is Fax Mail Service Busy status, FMSU field is Fax Mail Fax Mail Service Unconditional status, MC field is Multi-Call, CC field is Conference Call, MUDN field is Multiple Unit Directory Number. Represents an additional service represented by 2-bit data, respectively.

3 is a flowchart illustrating a service change / addition procedure in a subscriber-based ringback tone service method according to the present invention.

First, as described above, when a subscribed subscriber accesses a designated web server 100 using a personal computer or the like, the web server 100 can change / add the service of the present invention. Present a web page on the computer's screen.

Therefore, when the subscriber inputs his / her phone number through the web page and requests a replacement sound change by selecting a desired one from the list of sound sources secured in the sound source providing device 50 (S301). The web server 100 requests the replacement sound change request to the sound source providing control server 70 (S302), and the sound source providing control server 70 transmits an existing call to the subscriber (phone number) based on the request. Release the sound source code set in association with and stores the code of the selected sound source so that the selected sound source is provided in place of the ringback tone to the caller of the subscriber's telephone number (S303).

On the other hand, the subscriber selects the addition of the sound source through the web page, and the replacement sound by passing to the web server by attaching a development guide sound file, a logo file, a specific music file, etc. created or obtained with their own phone number When requesting the addition (S304), the web server 100 requests the sound source providing apparatus 50 to add a replacement sound (S305), the sound source providing apparatus 50 based on the request the attached file In addition to securing as an additional sound source (S306), the sound source providing control server 70 allows the code of the additional sound source is linked to the subscriber's telephone number (S307).

4 is a flowchart illustrating a service termination procedure in a subscriber-based ringback tone service method according to the present invention.

First, if there is a cancellation request from the subscriber for the service of the present invention, that is, the subscriber-based ringback tone service (S401), the subscriber storage database 80 to terminate the service subscription for the requestor (ie, requester's telephone number) according to the request. In addition to updating, the termination information (including the phone number) is transmitted from the database 80 to the home location register 10 (S402), the home location register 10, the subscriber profile of the service of the present invention The subscription is updated to be terminated (S403). In addition, the termination information (that is, subscriber deletion information) including the termination subscriber telephone number is transmitted from the database 80 to the sound source providing control server 70 at the time of termination (S404), and the sound source providing control server 70 Terminates the code of the sound source allocated in step S205 based on the received cancellation information (S405).

FIG. 5 is a flowchart illustrating an embodiment of a substantial service procedure performed after the procedure of FIGS. 2 and / or 3 is completed in the subscriber-based ringback tone service method according to the present invention.

First, when an arbitrary caller calls a service subscriber (hereinafter referred to as a called subscriber) of the present invention and requests a call connection, the calling exchange 31 requests the called location information from the home location register 10 (Location). Request) (S501).

The home location register 10 requests routing information from the destination exchange 32 according to the request (Routing Request) (S502), and accordingly, the destination exchange 32 transmits routing information to the home location register 10. (Ie, provide a TLDN: Temporary Local Directory Number) and respond (S503).

The home location register 10 transmits the routing information to the originating exchange 31 to respond to the step S501 (S504). Accordingly, the originating exchange 31 sends the called exchange based on the routing information. 32) requests the ISUP call connection to form a mutual call path (S505).

Then, the destination exchange 32 sees the service setting information of the present invention (SRBT field of FIG. 6 received and stored in step S208-2 of FIG. 2) stored therein and if the SRBT field is marked with '11', the called party sees it. Recognizing that the subscriber of the invention service and the service activation state, based on the routing information received and stored in step S208-2 of Fig. 2 requests the ISUP call connection to the sound source providing device 50 to form a mutual call path and the incoming call number And also provides the outgoing telephone number (S506). As a result, the call exchanger 31, the call exchanger 32, and the sound source providing device 50 are in a state in which a call path is formed.

The sound source providing device 50 requests a sound source code from the sound source providing control server 70 based on the received incoming call number and the outgoing call number information (S507), and the sound source providing control server 70 provides the In response to the request, a predetermined sound source code is searched in association with the provided incoming / outgoing telephone number and the searched sound source code is transmitted to the sound source providing device 50 in response to step S507 (S508), and the sound source providing device 50 is provided. ) Transmits the replacement sound corresponding to the received sound source code as a ring back tone to the caller through the formed call path (S509).

The destination exchange 32, when the incoming subscriber receives a call while the replacement sound is being transmitted to the ringback tone as described above, requests the sound source providing device 50 to release the ISUP call and the sound source providing device 50. To release the call (S510). At the same time, a call is made between the caller and the called subscriber through the call path mutually formed with the calling exchange 31 (S511).

Meanwhile, in the subscriber-based ringback tone service method according to the present invention, a called subscriber can access the home location register 10 and change the service setting information of the present invention set in the SRBT field of the home location register 10. Make sure For example, when a called subscriber presses a specific key promised through his mobile terminal, the key information is transmitted to the home location register 10, and the home location register 10 is based on the transmitted key information. You can change the two bits of information shown in. However, since the upper bit of the 2 bits indicates the presence or absence of a service of the present invention, the upper bit cannot be changed and the lower bit indicates whether or not the service is activated. That is, in case of a subscriber, there may be two types of data displayed in SRBT, '10' and '11', where '10' indicates service deactivation and '11' indicates service activation. 11 'or' 11 'to' 10 'to allow the called subscriber to use the existing ringback tone as they wish or to use their own alternative ringtone as ringback tone. It allows you to choose. Therefore, when the SRBT field is set to '10', the destination exchange 32 provides the caller with the same ringback tone as the conventional scheme even when the subscriber is a subscriber.

Next, a preferred embodiment of a sound source gift device and method, which is based on the subscriber-based ringback tone service method according to the present invention described above with reference to FIGS. 1 to 6, will be described in detail.

FIG. 7 is a block diagram showing an embodiment of a device for a music present in a subscriber-based ringback tone service according to the present invention. As shown in the figure, a presenter (ie, a gift sender who wants to send a song present) Wired Internet communication with the personal computer 701 to allow the user to select the sound source to be presented, and present the recipient (which means the same as 'subscriber' in the following description because it must be a subscriber of the subscriber-based ringback tone service). A web server 711 for specifying; A WAP server 711 for wirelessly communicating with the user's mobile terminal 703 to select the sound source and designate the gift recipient; An automatic answering server (ARS Server) 713 for voice communication with the mobile terminal 703 for selecting the sound source and designating the gift recipient in an automatic answering service; A sound source gift server 720 connected to and communicated with the web server 711, the swap server 713, and the answering machine 713; A sound source providing control server 730 which communicates with the sound source gift server 720 through the Internet; And a short message service server (SMS Server) 740 for making a short message of sound source gift notification information requested from the sound source gift server 720 and sending it to the mobile terminal 705 of the gift receiver.

The sound source gift server 720 is the personal computer 701 or the mobile terminal 703 according to a sound source selection procedure programmed in the web server 711, the swap server 713, and the answering machine 713, respectively. A list of sound sources held by the user or the selected sound source itself so that a user can select and select a sound source he / she wants to present, and the sound source code information and gift recipient information selected by the user from the servers 711, 713, 715 (e.g., Receives and recognizes the mobile phone number of the gift recipient, and delivers the recognized information to the sound source providing control server 730, and includes the callback information to itself based on the gift recipient information. The sound source gift notification information is transmitted to the mobile terminal 705 of the gift receiver in the form of a short message through the short message service server 740. By the mobile terminal 705 connected according to the callback information, the conditional classification information, that is, the sound source received from the sound source providing control server 730 by caller, caller group, caller age, gender, occupation and And / or selects condition-specific information for specifying and distinguishing by condition such as time-of-call and time, and transmits the selected condition-specific information to the sound source providing control server 730. In addition, the sound source gift server 720 has the same sound source that corresponds to the code in the sound source providing device 50 of FIG.

The sound source providing control server 730 has the same function as the sound source providing control server 70 of FIG. 1, in particular, as shown in FIG. 8, the inactive storage space 731 and the sender, sender group, and caller. It has an active storage space 732 divided by age, gender, occupation, originating time zone, etc., the code information provided from the sound source gift server 72 to the inactive storage space of the subscriber (that is, gift recipient) ( 731, the sound source of the code stored in the active storage space 732 is moved and stored in the active storage space 732 by dividing according to the conditional classification information provided from the sound source gift server 72. To be used as ringback tone. In addition, the sound source providing control server 730 to provide the inactive storage space 731 as a space for storing a plurality of code information (for example six), the reason is that the gift recipient mobile terminal for paging When there is no sound present from multiple gift senders during No Paging Response (NPR) or Power Off state, and when there is no spare in the inactive storage space 731 Next, the code information provided from the sound source gift server 72 is overwritten on the oldest code information based on the stored time of the pre-stored codes.

In another example, the swap server 713 responds by dropping the swap information for selecting a gift for a gift and designating a gift recipient on the screen of the mobile terminal 703. The service server 715 responds to the mobile terminal 703 by sending a voice answering information capable of selecting a sound source for a gift and designating a gift recipient as an answering voice (S902).

When the gift sender communicates with the server 711 or 703 through the terminal 701 or 703 to select a sound source to be presented and designates a gift recipient, the selected sound source and gift receiver information is displayed in the sound source gift server. The sound source gift server 720 transmits the sound source desired by the gift sender to the mobile terminal 703 at the request of the swap server 713 or the ARS server 715. Provided to listen directly to the gift to be selected as a gift (S903). For reference, the designated gift receiver information is a mobile terminal telephone number of the gift receiver, and the ISUP from the destination exchange 32 to the sound source providing apparatus 50 in the subscriber-based ringback tone service described above with reference to FIGS. 1 to 6. This is the same information as the subscriber information delivered with the call connection request, and if the designated gift receiver is not a subscriber of the subscriber-based ringback tone service, the present service of the present embodiment cannot perform the music presenting service of the present embodiment. Respond with a message indicating that it is impossible.

Subsequently, the sound source gift server 720 transmits code information of the selected sound source and information of the designated gift receiver to the sound source providing control server 730 (S904), and the sound source providing control server 730 receives the received information. Stored sound source code information in the inactive storage space 731 of the corresponding gift recipient based on the gift recipient information, and if there is no spare of the inactive storage space 731, the storage time of the pre-stored codes Overwrite the oldest code to save (S905).

In step S904, the sound source gift server 720 presents a content of a short message in the form of a short message indicating that the sound source (i.e., the selected sound source) has been presented to whom (i.e., the gift recipient). In order to notify the gift recipient, the short message service server may include a music gift notification request message including callback information (CallBack #) (for example, a callback number or a callback URL), a sound recording code, and information about a gift recipient phone number. In step S906, the short message service server 740 transmits a sound message present notification message in the form of a short message to the mobile terminal 705 of the present recipient based on the sound source present notification request message (S907). ).

The gift receiver sees the contents of the received sound source gift notification message through the mobile terminal 705 and recognizes that there is a sound gift. The mobile terminal 705 receives the sound source gift server based on the callback information. In step S908, the sound source gift server 720 notifies (eg, allows direct listening to) the sound source, and by caller, caller group, caller age, gender, In response to the access of step S907, the list of condition-specific classification information divided by occupation, calling time zone, and the like is selected so that one of them can be selected (S909).

Subsequently, when the gift receiver selects the conditional information of one of the lists through the mobile terminal 705 (S910), the sound source gift server 720 recognizes the selected conditional information and recognizes it. The condition-specific classification information is transmitted to the sound source providing control server 730, at which time the gift recipient information is also transmitted (S911).

Finally, the sound source providing control server 730 activates the code information of the gift sound source stored in the inactive storage space 731 in step S905 according to the received conditional classification information and the gift recipient information. Moving to the corresponding space for each condition of the storage space 132 stores and activates the corresponding sound source of the code to be used as a substitute for ringback tone in the mobile communication network (S912).

Meanwhile, the subscriber of the subscriber-based ringback tone service has the code of the received sound source in the inactive storage space 731 of the sound source providing control server 720 as described above (this is the conditional classification information in step S910). May be implemented by adding a process such as not selecting or suspending selection). Then, the sound source providing control server 70 through the web server 100 constructed on the Internet network as in the service change procedure of FIG. 3. It is possible to activate by moving to store the sound source code stored in the inactive storage space 731 to the active storage space,

As described in detail above, according to the present invention and a method for presenting a sound source in a subscriber-based ringback tone service, a personal PR service means capable of realizing a user by registering or selecting a desired sound source in a network. The receiver can store / transmit the sound such as his or her own voice, so that his / her identity can be notified to the subscriber of the other party, and the subscribers such as corporations have the opportunity to publicize their company. By providing a subscriber-based ringback tone service that provides an effective means of advertising, it is possible to present the sound source to a friend who is a subscriber, and the gifted subscriber can selectively activate the received sound source, thereby providing additional services. Increasing profits and quality of service are created by the creation of.
