Background Art

In general, as for the methods of exchanging information with the other party afar, there is a digital communication method, which exchanges digital information such as texts or numbers as well as an analog communication method, which exchanges analog information such as voice. And, a call is accomplished by an originating party's dialing a telephone number on a communication terminal and then confirming a ring-back tone, in conjunction with an called party's acknowledging the call from the buzzer of a communication terminal and then answering the same.

Moreover, to accomplish a call, a communication system needs to be in place, comprising wired or wireless communication terminals and exchange system, capable of originating and answering, wherein said communication terminals and the exchange system are connected in a wired or wireless manner by means of a subscriber's line, with the exchange systems being connected by trunk cables.

Meanwhile, with the recent development of various technologies, communication systems are not an exception in rapid growth and development. Figure 1 shows a schematic diagram of a typical communication system currently in use. A wired or wireless terminal (A or B), capable of originating and answering, is connected to an exchange system line or a wireless channel. Between the switches, or the base stations, connections are via transit trunk cables in a wired or wireless manner.

Moreover, an exchange system comprises a speech-path unit, which provides a mutual speech path with respect to the originating and answering parties, and a control unit, which controls the speech-path unit. The control unit contains various programs, which process originating and answering, receive numbers, translate numbers, process busy calls, and do disconnections. Further, the exchange system uses a common-channel signal mode (signaling system No.7), which enables transmission of signals during a call, enables a high-speed transmission of data, and enables connection between different types of communication terminals.

Figure 2 shows a schematic circuit diagram of said communication terminal .

The communication terminal comprises a call-processing unit 1 which processes the user' s voice transmitted from the private branch exchange or base station; a signal-processing unit 3 which processes the signals transmitted from the private branch exchange or the base station; a memory unit 5 having a pre-stored music, melody, etc.; and an output unit 7 which outputs the voices from a call processing unit or the music or melody pre-stored in the memory unit 5. Moreover, when a call signal is inputted into the answering communication terminal via a subscriber' s line or a wireless channel from the private branch exchange or the base station, then the music, melody, etc., pre-stored in the memory unit 5 by a user, is outputted via the output unit 7 as an answer tone.

Figure 3 shows an outline of an intelligent network providing various types of additional services.

The intelligent network is generally equipped with large-scale computers and database onto the communication systems of Figure 1, which comprises a transfer network exchanging and transmitting information such as voice and data, a signal network transferring the control signals between the various elements of the transfer network by means of a common-channel signaling mode (No.7), and a service network controlling the services of the intelligent network while maintaining the user data.

The transfer network comprises a service switching points (SSP) and a local exchanges (LE), which carries out the functions of call connections and signal-gateway. The signal network comprises signal transfer points (STP), which relays the service signals by means of common-channel signaling mode (No. 7). The service network comprises a service control point (SCP) having software, database and computers which can change and add respective services. Moreover, the service control point (SCP) uses a service management system (SMS) and X.25 protocol. The signal transfer point (STP) uses a signaling engineering and administration system (SEAS) and X.35 protocol.

Currently, the following sets of services are being provided by means of the intelligent network (IN): free phone (FP), credit calling

(CO, personal number (PN), wide area centrex (WAC), virtual private network (VPN), emergency response service ERS), televoting, public directory, teleconference, etc.

Figure 4 shows the diagrammatic flowchart of signals in a general call.

Currently, the method and the communication terminal have been developed, wherein said communication terminal reproduces the melody pre-stored in the answering communication terminal as an answer tone when the private branch exchange or the base station transmits a call signal to the answering communication terminal.

Although a conventional communication terminal can reproduce the music, melody, etc. pre-stored in the memory as an answer tone, it has the problem that the conventional communication terminal cannot reproduce or display the information such as music, voice, or images, which is sent to the answering communication terminal from the private branch exchange or the base station.

Next, in step 300, it is determined whether the call is from the private branch exchange or the base station, or from the other exchange networks. If it is detected to be "NO," then the private branch exchange or the base station, and the other telephone network are connected by means of a common-channel signaling mode (No. 7) in a wired or wireless manner, followed by step 400. Alternatively, if it is selected to "YES", then the progression into step 400 is made.

In continuing, in step 400, a ring-back tone is simultaneously transmitted to the originating communication terminal from the exchanger of the private branch exchange or the base station while the information such as music, voice, or images for advertisement, pre- stored in the computers, is transmitted to the answering communication terminal as a call signal, followed by the progression into step 500.

Consequently, in step 500, the information such as music, voice, or images for advertisement is reproduced as an answer tone via a speaker on the answering communication terminal, followed by the progression into step 600.

Moreover, in step 600, it is detected whether the answer back was transmitted to the private branch exchange or the base station from the answering communication terminal. If it is detected to be "NO", step

500 is executed. If it is detected to be "YES", step 500 restarts, and the toll for the call is initiated.
