Abstract

A previous Disclosure (No. 4206H - IrUSe of the VMS as Gateway to the Dispatch Network") indicates the possibility of establishing a Voice Mail Call between a Mobile Subscriber and a Voice Mail System connected to the Dispatch Network. A method for end-to-end signaling based on message relaying by the EBTS is proposed in the above disclosure.

ADDING VOICE RECOGNITION CAPABILITY TO A GATEWAY VMS

by Dan Wolf, Yakov Sirnkln and Anatoly Belkin

GENERAL

A previous Disclosure (No. 4206H - IrUSe of the VMS as Gateway to the Dispatch Network") indicates the possibility of establishing a Voice Mail Call between a Mobile Subscriber and a Voice Mail System connected to the Dispatch Network. A method for end-to-end signaling based on message relaying by the EBTS is proposed in the above disclosure.

By adding Voice Recognition capability to the VMS some new applications become possible:

. Voice Activated Dialing

. Voice Activated Paging

. Voice Activated Navigation

. Dictation Services

The VMS can use the Voice Recognition to receive the subscriber's choices instead of the use of the end-to-end signaling. The VMS would be able to

recognized simple choices (YESINO or digits) or more advanced ones (ex. name of the target Subscriber).

Dictation services will allow the MS to record voice messages, convert them to text and direct them via e-mail to various targets (his own address, other address, distribution lists, etc).

The new functionality will allow the VMS to fulfil the role of an Operator, receiving requests and taking "notes" on behalf of the user. The new feature will be referred to as a "Call to VMS Operator".

The rest of the memo will describe the voice interaction between the MS and the VMS using the Disclosure No. 4206H as reference.

ESTABLISHING AN OPERATOR CALL FROM MS TO VMS

The connection of an MS to the VMS to establish the Operator functionality is very similar to a Private Call initiated by an MS. It is shown in Figure 1.

Technical Developments

1. MS initiates a RR connection establishment by sending a Channel Request message. The Establishment Cause will be set to "Call to VMS".

This value will indicate to the FNE that a special treatment is needed.

2. The mobile subscriber originates a VMOperator Request. This new type of request starts a specific procedure and will be used in the processing of subsequent messages. The subscriber's IMSI is included. VMS, which acts as a terminating ACG, receives a VM-Operator message.

3. The VMS sends to the DAP a VM-Operator Response Info message, allowing the DAP to complete the Call to Voice Mail Operator semp.

4. As a result of the Call to Voice Mail Operator, the VMS will receive a VM-Operator Start message from the DAP.

5. The MS receives the VMO Grant-Originator message from the DAP
