Automatic Phone Authentication

In the international environment very often people can't meet and discuss ideas or solutions face to face. They need to collaborate using different communication tools or media, such as for example telephone or web conference. Very often meeting participants receive meeting invitation with call in number and participant pass code. They need to call in the meeting using telephone or some media application which allow them to speak using laptop/computer. The participant or moderator very frequently needs to book conference room and then manually put the call in number and participant or moderator pass code. It happens that he does mistakes and needs to repeat the call in number or participant/moderator

pass code a few times.

It is proposed to use the information received in meeting invitation by participant (or saved on e-mail server for moderator) for direct phone authentication and control of other resources (such as projector, video camera) within booked meeting room instead of known manual approach for authentication, call in and setting up all resources required during meeting.

The standard procedure to call in remote meeting for a participant:


1) User received meeting invitation with call in number and participant code


2) User books additional meeting room where he can call in the remote meeting


3) When time is on, user goes to previously booked meeting room, connects to the internet and authenticates into phone (enters user ID and PIN)


4) User opens the meeting invitation and manually dials (phone number and participant pass code) - when he makes mistakes he needs to repeat the step


5) User takes part in the call


6) User set up connection with projector or video camera to take part in video teleconference


7) When the call ends user logs out from the phone and leaves the meeting room

The standard procedure to call in remote meeting for a moderator:


1) User sent meeting invitation with call in number, participant code, and previously booked meeting room


2) When time is on, user goes to previously booked meeting room, connects to the internet and authenticates into phone (enters user ID and PIN)


3) User finds his moderator call credentials and manually dials (phone number and moderator pass code) - when he makes mistakes he needs to repeat the step


5) User starts the call


6) User set up connection with projector or video camera to start video teleconference


7) When the call ends user logs out from the phone and leaves the meeting room

This standard procedure requires from user to manually authenticate into phone where he needs to look at the meeting invitation (or his moderator pass code) and rewrite phone number and participant/moderator pass code. Moreover, when user needs to present slides or set up video teleconference, then additional effort is needed to connect with device and stream slides, recordings and video signal.

One can automate this step with following method:
