Abstract

See full text

A network device and method of operation. The network device receives a call setup request, identifies the appropriate resource server for that call and transmits it to a resource server that then authorizes or does not authorize the call associated with the setup request. The authorization process allows enforcement of voice and dial agreements by authorizing those calls within a particular agreement and denying call setup requests for those that violate the agreements.
