Abstract

INTERCONNECT CALL PRIORITY Currently, the only priority resource assignment capability available is for mobile initiated intercon- nect calls where the individual id of the subscriber has a priority capability associated with it. However, there is no priority resource assignment method to provide for land initiated interconnect calls or for varying priority levels within the interconnect feature. The shared service algorithm (U.S. Patent 4,612,415) , which manages intercon- nect traffic, also does not make any accommodation for priority resource assignment for individual interconnect calls.

INTERCONNECT CALL PRIORITY BASED UPON PHONE NUMBERS

1 CURRENT METHOD FOR

INTERCONNECT CALL PRIORITY

  Currently, the only priority resource assignment capability available is for mobile initiated intercon- nect calls where the individual id of the subscriber has a priority capability associated with it. However, there is no priority resource assignment method to provide for land initiated interconnect calls or for varying priority levels within the interconnect feature. The shared service algorithm
(U.S. Patent 4,612,415) , which manages intercon- nect traffic, also does not make any accommodation for priority resource assignment for individual interconnect calls.

2 THE PROBLEM

  It is desirable to provide a method to dynami tally adjust the priority level of a subscriber unit making a mobile-to-land interconnect call. It is also desirable to provide the land line with a method to be dynamically assigned a priority level when making a land-to-mobile interconnect call.

3 PROVIDING A NEW INTERCONNECT

CALL PRIORITY SOLUTION

By using the phone number of the land line, a method can be provided to support priority

resource assignment capability for both land and mobile initiated interconnect calls. This would include making allowances for emergency individual interconnect calls in the shared service algorithm. This solution would also allow for the implementation of varying priority levels within the interconnect feature.

MOBILE-TO-LAND INTERCONNECT CALLS

  The solution enhances the current priority resource assignment paradigm for mobile initiated interconnect calls by comparing the phone number being called by a subscriber unit against a list of user designed priority phone numbers. This priority method would have precedence over any preemp- tion priority capability which may or may not be assigned to the subscriber unit (See Figure 1).
