Abstract

Disclosed here is a expansion to telephone dialing system which allow the call originator to add the additional dialing digit (say, the add-on code). The ordinal telephone system does not allow the subscriber to receive the dialing information (except for the caller id when allowed) thus the only way to transmit such information is to ask the originator to send the push dial signal after the connection is made. With new system, the originator will consider the add-on code as the natural extension for the telephone number. The add-on code will be transmitted to the recieving telephone terminal equipment during subscriber is ringed, then the ordinal audio communication will take place. Such service is very useful for Computer Telephony Integration (CTI) such as telephone banking and help-center call. See Figure 1 for how the dialed number will transfered. Fig 1 Figure 2 shows how the telephone network process the call. 1

Originator terminal(1) is connected to the switchboard at the local exchange(2) as usual. The terminal could be the Telehone terminal or any devices which equips Modulator/Demodlator (MODEM) such as Personal Computer. The swichboard equips the ordinal Dial processing device(3) and new 'additional dial storage'(4). Dial processing device(3) receives the dialed number and it detects the number is for the special service. The originator terminal is connected to the dial storage(4). Dial storage(4) stores all the number dialed. Then the storage divides the dialed number into two part; the call designating digits and the add-on code digits. The network connection(5) processes the call designating digits and finds the connection path to the designated receiving terminal. It may use the number directory service for a paticular service number. The directory is similar to the toll-free (1-800) and/or charge-collect (1-900) service. When ringing the reciv...
