[0014] FIG. 1 is a schematic representation of an example of an IP Multimedia Core Network Subsystem (IMS) communication system using preconditions in accordance with an illustrative embodiment of the present disclosure; and

[0015] FIG. 2 is a flow diagram of the IMS communication process in accordance with an illustrative embodiment of the present disclosure.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION

[0017] Generally stated, the non-limitative illustrative embodiments of the present disclosure provide an Internet Protocol (IP) Multimedia Subsystem or IP Multimedia Core Network Subsystem (IMS) communication method and system using preconditions. IMS is an architectural framework for delivering IP multimedia services originally designed by the wireless standards body 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP), as a part of the vision for evolving mobile networks beyond Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM).

[0018] Referring to FIG. 1 , there is shown an example of an IMS communication using preconditions 10 in accordance with an illustrative embodiment of the present disclosure. In the illustrated example, a user uses an IMS device 20, for example a smart phone using GSM as described in Permanent Reference Document (PRD) IR.92 or even IR.58, to communicate with a recipient having an IP Private Branch Exchange (IP-PBX) system 30, for example a service provider, a multimedia provider, a professional's office or other types of businesses providing client services.

[0019] The IMS device 20 contains various types of information such as VCard, Global Positioning System (GPS) info, IP Multimedia Private Identity (IMPI), IP Multimedia Public Identity (IMPU), or other information. The IMPI is a unique permanently allocated global identity assigned by the home network operator, and is used, for example, for Registration, Authorization, Administration, and Accounting purposes. The IMPU is used by the user to request communication with other users (e.g. this might be included on a business card). There can be multiple IMPU per IMPI. The IMPU can also be shared with another IMS device 20, so that both can be reached with the same identity.

[0020] The IP-PBX system 30 can provide, for example, audio, video, voice over internet protocol (VoIP) and instant messaging communication through the TCP/IP protocol stack for its internal network and interconnects its internal network with the public switched telephone network (PSTN) for telephony communication.

[0021] Referring now to FIG. 2, there is shown a flow diagram of an illustrative example of the IMS process 100 illustrated in FIG. 1. Steps of the process 100 are indicated by blocks 102 to 1 12.

[0022] The process 00 starts at block 102 where a user initiates a call 11 , using the IMS device 20, to the IP-PBX system 30.

[0023] At block 104, the IP-PBX system 30 requests information from the IMS device 20 through a push back procedure 12 using, for example, a pop-up message, in accordance with its preconditions application 32. It is to be understood that preconditions such as determining if the IMS device 20 has High Definition (HD) video capability, or other such preconditions, may be handled automatically and seamlessly.

[0024] Then, at block 106, the IMS device 20 responds 13 by accepting or refusing to provide the information requested by the IP-PBX system 30. The accepting or refusing to provide the information is effectuated by the user of the IMS device 20. However, in an alternative embodiment, the IMS device 20 may be set to automatically provide information to approved IP-PBX systems 30, either explicitly identified or through some accreditation. In a further alternative embodiment, the IMS device 20 may be set to automatically provide certain predefined types of information while other types of information require the input or acceptance of the user. It is to be understood that requested information may be assigned different levels of sensitivity.

[0025] At block 108, the IP-PBX system 30 verifies if the user has provided the requested information (either by the user accepting to provide the requested information or the IMS device 20 being set to automatically provide the information). If not, the process 100 proceeds to block 110 where the call 11 proceeds as per a normal call, if so, it proceeds to block 1 12.

[0026] Finally, at block 112, using the requested information provided by the IMS device 20, the preconditions application 32 instructs the IP-PBX system 30 to execute one or more predefined action 14. In an alternative embodiment, there may be a selection of predefined actions 14 by the preconditions application 32 depending on the level of sensitivity of the provided information 13. The predefined action 14 may be, for example but not limited to, placing the call in a special calling queue (for example a queue with a quicker response time) of a service center 40, which makes available the provided information 13 to a service representative through a client service application 42, which may pull further information associated with the provided information 13 from a database 44. The predefined action 14 may also be, for example, the sending of coupons or other documents/offers to the user, providing audio, video, voice over internet protocol (VoIP) or instant messaging communications.

[0027] It is to be understood that process 100 may be applied to communications between other types of initiating devices and response systems. It is to be further understood that the initiating devices and response systems include processors and associated memories for executing and storing the IMS communication process, precondition application and other various related information.

[0028] Although the present disclosure has been described with a certain degree of particularity and by way of an illustrative embodiment and examples thereof, it is to be understood that the present disclosure is not limited to the features of the embodiments described and illustrated herein, but includes all variations and modifications within the scope and spirit of the disclosure as hereinafter claimed.
