detailed description

FIG 1 is a phone call is initiated in accordance with the multi-mode wireless voice terminal apparatus according to the present invention, a flowchart of a mobile network or a fixed network is automatically selected.

Since the multi-mode wireless voice terminal device can be connected to the mobile network and a fixed network, typically a network in the network are designated as the default network.

When an embodiment according to the present invention, initiating a telephone call in S100 multimode wireless voice terminal device, it first determines the currently set default network S110. Here, it is assumed that the default network is a fixed network.

After determining the default network, the multimode wireless terminal device number of the voice call (hereinafter referred to as the called number) matching / filter S120, S180 and call handling rules within the multimode wireless terminal device stores the voice, so that the specific the called number corresponding to the particular call via the network to carry out. The call rules, and matching / filtering method can take many forms, and will hereinafter be described with reference to FIG.

If the called number satisfies the rules call, for example to match the multi-mode wireless voice terminal device of the specific number or a specific prefix, indicating that the called number corresponding to the call must be made through another network than the default network, in in this scenario, the other network is a mobile network, the multimode wireless terminal device to switch to the appropriate voice mobile network communication module to initiate a telephone call via the mobile network S190. If a particular number in the called number with the voice terminal or a specific prefix does not match, or no match results show that the call must be carried by the fixed network, the fixed network directly, i.e., set default network initiates phone call.

After the telephone call is initiated by the fixed network is determined, further determining whether the multimode wireless terminal device connected to the gateway speech S130; if not connected to the network that the call is still moving through S190. As Gao has been connected, you need to view the current status of the gateway S140. If the gateway is not busy, the phone call is initiated by the fixed network S170; if the gateway is busy, it is checked whether a call for seasonal S150 busy gateway via a mobile network. As has been set, so the call to S190 performed by the mobile network, if it is not set, the user is prompted to: the gateway is busy, the call can not be successfully S160. After Similarly, if the start is determined default network for mobile networks S110, similarly, the in matching / filter called number S180, if the result of the matching / filtering is required, the switching network via the communication module and the fixed network diverted through the fixed network in step S130; S190 otherwise, the call initiated by the mobile telephone network.

FIG 2 is a multi-mode wireless voice terminal device receiving phone calls, a flowchart of a mobile network or a fixed network is automatically selected. Multi-mode wireless voice terminal device can be connected to a mobile network or a fixed network, mobile network and the fixed network or one set as a default network answer.

Upon receipt of an incoming call request S200, the multimode wireless voice terminal first determines the incoming call request via the fixed network is reaching S210 or mobile network.

If the incoming call request via the gateway, i.e. the fixed network to reach, directly through the fixed network ring, answer or reject the incoming call S270.

If the incoming call request is reached via a mobile network, it is determined whether the current default multimode wireless terminal devices receive voice network settings S220. If the default network is a fixed network, the call to the calling number is matched / filtration S220, for example, control a specific number in the multimode wireless voice terminal or a specific prefix matching / filtering calling numbers. The result is a mobile network, the mobile network will be replaced by ringing, answer or reject the incoming call S290. If the matching / filtering results by the fixed network to accept the incoming call, it is further determined whether the multimode wireless voice terminal equipment and the gateway is connected to S240. If not connected, the call through the mobile network is still S290; if connected, it is necessary to view the current status of the gateway S250. If the gateway is not busy, the command may be a mobile network, such as call forwarding on busy, the incoming call is transferred to the gateway S260, the multimode wireless voice terminal via the gateway device, the fixed network by ringing, answer or reject the incoming call S270. If the gateway is busy, you can still answer or reject incoming calls via mobile networks S290.

If the multimode wireless voice terminal is determined default mobile network / fixed network settings S220, default by the mobile network, the call to the calling number is matched filter S2 8 0. If / filtered through a voice terminal within a specific number or a specific prefix match, a result is required by the fixed network, then step through the fixed network call steering S240; otherwise, through the mobile network ring, answer or reject the incoming call S290.

3 is a detailed flow chart of the call number matching the call according to the rules / filters of the present invention as described.

Here, the rules which call the call through a particular network for a specific call number which can have multiple matching / filtering options. For example, the call numbers can be checked, including the calling number or called number, and whether a particular number matches the previously registered S300, if the calling number is identical with any particular number, indicating the number match, and in accordance with the matching set, selected by mobile or fixed networks S350.

Alternatively, it is possible to check whether the calling number is registered in advance with a specific number prefix matches S310, if a calling number from the first few start with any particular number a prefix identical to the prefix numbers match, prefix match in accordance with the set, selected by mobile or fixed networks S350.

Can also check whether the calling number registered in advance with a specific number prefix same filter S320, if a calling number from the first few start with any specific number prefix of the filter, the filter is carried out prefix number to the call number, i.e., the filter is removed and a part of the same prefix number prefix number from the call, the remaining number is a real call number, and in accordance with the filter setting, select a mobile or fixed network call S350 is performed.

Alternatively, the calling number may check whether certain numbers or prefixes pre-registered with the binding period, the number prefix matching filter S330, if match, according to the matching / filter setting, a period of time specified in the call selection mobile or fixed networks S350.

Or, an increase in telephone contact recording multimode wireless terminal device in a voice option, the default calling number designated for the preferred network is a mobile network or a fixed network; this number is matched to a particular form.

Wherein said call number, a specific number prefix and prefix may be filtered by a particular number string of numbers, letters or special characters combined in any order.

If the call number is not certain numbers or prefixes and previously registered, a prefix number match filter / or are not the same, then for the call number, according to the current default, select a mobile or fixed communication network S340.

By numbers matching / filtering, the user can directly dial the number automatically selecting mobile / fixed network by matching numbers. Or before the desired dialed prefix plus the specified filter, e.g. '# #, representing outgoing calls, dialing the fixed network through' ##, it is removed. Some mobile network service providers in a certain period of time to make / receive calls for free, such as 22:00 to 6:00 am, set filters prefix '##, the call number with the prefix filter at this time all the segments via a mobile network. For answer the call, the user can set, for a certain number, all receive through the mobile network.

A method for automatically selecting the network, may further improve the expansion. For example, when detecting whether the gateway is connected to the terminal, it may be added simultaneously detected signal strength, may be set when the signal strength is below a certain limit, that is connected with the gateway and the terminal is not available, so the two are not connected. Further, in the multi-mode wireless voice terminal device before transfer to the incoming call gateway, the multimode wireless terminal device through voice command special extension, first detects whether the gateway support incoming call ringing present only voice multimode wireless terminal device, if not support, you can not make call transfer.

In the context of the present invention, short-range wireless technology, may not be limited to the enumerated WLAN, Bluetooth, UWB and Wireless USB, etc., may be another short-range radio access. The long-range wireless, may not be limited to the exemplified GSM, 3G and WiMAX, may be another long-range radio access, e.g. PHS PHS wireless 4G or next generation and the like.

While the present invention is given with reference to preferred embodiments and examples described herein, but those of ordinary skill will appreciate that the spirit and scope of the present invention without departing from the claims as defined by the appended claims may be made in form and details of the various changes.
