A method of establishing a connection with a user device associated with a user includes receiving a request from the user, the request related to a product or service and determining a context associated with the request. Accordingly, based on the determined context, one of a plurality of available communication modes can be determined and an agent device of the contact center can be connected with the user device via the determined one of the plurality of available communication modes.

A method of sending data to one of a plurality of geographically dispersed contact center service sites includes receiving a contact from a customer device; determining a context of the contact; and retrieving, by the server of the contact center, from a first context store, information based on the determined context of the contact. Accordingly, based on the determined context of the contact, a predicted particular service site from among the plurality of geographically dispersed contact center service sites can be identified so that the retrieved information can be sent to a storage location that is closer to the predicted particular service site than the contact center is.

A method of routing contacts in a contact center includes receiving a registration from an agent of the contact center, wherein the registration identifies at least one attribute of a future contact the agent has an interest in receiving, receiving an incoming contact to the contact center; and identifying a context of the incoming contact comprising a plurality of contact attributes. Thus, it can be determined that the at least one attribute of the future contact matches at least one of the plurality of contact attributes; and whether the agent of the contact center is available to receive the incoming contact. When the agent of the contact center is available the incoming contact is routed to a first agent device associated with the agent of the contact center.


A method of responding to an incoming contact at a contact center includes receiving the incoming contact from a user device associated with a user; determining an attribute related to the user; and identifying historical contact interactions of the contact center that each have a respective attribute matching the attribute related to the user. Thus, based on the identified historical contact interactions, a next action associated with the contact can be predicted in order to provide dynamically modifying, during handling of the incoming contact, a default path for handling the incoming contact based on the predicted next action.


According to one embodiment, the grouping and arrangement of sound sources within a three-dimensional sound space can be based on attributes of the sound source. The content presented in the three-dimensional sound space can comprise social media content. According to another embodiment, the content can comprise voicemail messages and the three-dimensional sound space can be used for managing and retrieving the voicemails messages. In yet another embodiment, the content can comprise communications in a contact center between a customer or other caller and a customer support agent. According to a further embodiment, the three-dimensional sound space or an environment in which the three-dimensional sound space is implemented can provide an opportunity for the user or listener to initiate a follow-on communication with the originator of the sound source such as a social media post or other social media communication, a voice call, or other message or communication.

According to one embodiment, audio and non-audio data can be represented as sound sources in a three-dimensional sound space adapted to also provide visual data. Non-audio data can be associated with audio sound sources presented in the sound space. Navigation within this combined three-dimensional audio/visual space can be based primarily on the audio aspects of the sound sources with the details of the non-audio data being presented on demand, for example, when the listener navigates through the combined three-dimensional audio/visual space to a particular sound source at which point the non-audio data associated with that sound source can be presented.


Embodiments are directed to using a three-dimensional sound space to analyze security surveillance information. According to one embodiment, the three-dimensional sound space can comprise part of a security surveillance system in which sound sources related to security surveillance information can be presented and a user can efficiently navigate even a large number of sound sources in the three-dimensional sound space. Effective audio surveillance relies on the ability of the surveillance personnel to efficiently identify calls that need further analysis and calls that need no further analysis without introducing too many false negative or false positive conditions. Utilization of three-dimensional space described herein can increase the ease with which security analysts review audio content and identify relevant audio content that requires further analysis.

A method for forming and disbanding dynamic temporary groups includes receiving a plurality of contacts at the facility, wherein each contact is associated with a respective user and a respective set of attributes; identifying a first subset of contacts which share a first common attribute; and dynamically forming a temporary group of contacts by determining a second common attribute shared by a second subset of the contacts, wherein the second subset of contacts is a smaller subset of the first subset of contacts. The method also includes identifying a related goods or service, based on the second common attribute, and presenting an offer for the related goods or services to the second subset of contacts and not to member contacts of the first subset that are not member contacts of the second subset of contacts.

A method of dynamically maintaining conference attributes during a conference includes conducting the conference according to a first set of conference attributes based on a first set of member terminals currently members of the conference and detecting during the conference that conference membership changes from the first set of member terminals to a second set of member terminals participating in the conference. Thus, a second set of conference attributes can be determined based on the second set of member terminals so that the conference can be dynamically changed so as to be conducted according to the second set of conference attributes rather than the first set of conference attributes.


A computer-implemented method for packet switching in a transport network is described. The method comprises receiving a data packet at a first data switching device, the data packet having an existing header and being received from a customer network, the first data switching device being an edge node of a transport network. Encapsulating the data packet using a transport network header, the transport network header having a data structure that includes a transport device address space and a virtual local area network, VLAN, indicator space. Encapsulating the data packet includes setting a first portion of bits within the transport device address space, such that the first portion of bits indicates a data switching device address that is a node within the transport network. Encapsulating the data packet includes setting a second portion of bits within the transport device address space, such that the second portion of bits indicates a flow identifier. Selecting a forwarding path to a next-hop node of the transport network by using the flow identifier from the transport device address space as computational input for selecting the forwarding path. Forwarding the data packet to the next-hop node in the transport network using the selected forwarding path.
