Abstract

In telecommunications, a PoC user cannot selectively block a user. PoC user can not set the priority or subject of a call. Furthermore, a PoC user can not get location information from the group A number of ideas are put forth to address the issues above. These ideas are as follows: • Selective Do-not-Disturb (DnD): The DnD flag is set based on per group basis instead of all users. • Specify Importance/urgency of the call: The user can specify the importance of the call prior to call invocation. The users also have the option to choose if they are willing to take an incoming call if it is important/urgent, even if DnD flag is set up for that group. The importance/urgency information is displayed to the user along with alert. • Specify subject of the call: The user can specify the subject of the call as part of call invocation. The Subject information is displayed to the user along with alert. • Emergency call to group: A user can specify an urgent call and multicast to the group. This works in conjunction with Selective DnD and Specify Importance/urgency of the call. The emergency call request may override DnD setting and the caller in an emergency situation can be heard by the whole group. • Location information: During a session, user can send his/her location information to the group or user/server can request location information from the group. Location is computed by the device using available technology (e.g. AGPS). The participant list may also include the locations of the participants. The location information may be dynamically updated as required.
