Abstract

The function, to complete a call automatically at a specific time and date, is in fact available as a feature of mobile devices but not tendered by fixed network providers. In fixed networks, it is only possible to activate the Alarm Call Service to remind the subscriber. To solve this problem, the new idea uses the Call Completion on Pre-Defined Time (CCDT) that comprises a combination of two different functionalities, the Alarm Call Service and CCBS/CCNR (CCBS, Call Completion to Busy Subscriber; CCNR, Call Completion on No Reply).

This predefinition is processed by the Operator Command or the Subscriber Control Input. If B accepts the call, the network will wait a short time in order to allow the resources to be reused for making an outgoing call. If the resources are not used within this time, the network will recall user A automatically. If user A accepts...
