Abstract

Using Third Party Call Control for service solution

A dating-service site ( eg. lovematch.com) can find a match for a person looking for a date, but there is then often a "human behavior" problem: many times, a person is just too shy to contact the potential match.

    Dating services only mediate between potential couples, by enabling one person to search for possible matches, and it is then up to that user to contact the match, usually using the site's internal e-mail system.

    The solution presented here will ensure that contact (phone-call , instant messaging , SMS , etc ) will be created between the couple, even if neither of them initiated it. When two users register on, for example, a match-making or dating site, if the site "matches" the two of them, it will then initiate contact (usually a telephone call) between them.

The solution proposed is based on implementing the Third Party Call Control protocol (defined by the IETF, SIP working group) integrated with a Media Server (i.e Voice, Video over IP) using the SIP protocol.
