Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0228080A2] In prior art, communications terminals, which are connected to a communications facility, can only display text or graphic information which has been predetermined and generated by the respective communications facility. There are however between the manufacturers of terminals or communications facilities significant differences in interfaces, protocols, and operating principles for displaying text or graphic information on terminals, which, for example, are connected to a communications facility of another manufacturer. It has therefore previously been a complex process to provide system-specific messages by means of a communications facility for the terminals of any manufacturer. The invention relates to a method for operating a communications system comprising at least one communications facility and at least one communications terminal. According to said method, a system-specific message (SYS-MSG) that can be displayed on a user interface device (UI) of the communications terminal (TE1, TE2, TE3, MS) and that is sent from the communications facility (PBX) to the communications terminal (TE1, TE2, TE3, MS) is converted according to a protocol for a wireless text and/or graphics transmission and is displayed on the user interface device (UI).

[origin: WO0228080A2] The invention relates to a method for operating a communications system comprising at least one communications facility and at least one communications terminal. According to said method, a system-specific message (SYS-MSG) that can be displayed on a user interface device (UI) of the communications terminal (TE1, TE2, TE3, MS) and that is sent from the communications facility (PBX) to the communications terminal (TE1, TE2, TE3, MS) is converted according to a protocol for a wireless text and/or graphics transmission and is displayed on the user interface device (UI). When a user inputs a selection (SI), made on the basis of a system-specific message (SYS-MSG) that is displayed on the user interface device (UI), address information (AI) assigned to the input selection (SI) is transmitted to the communications facility (PBX) and is converted into a system-specific message (SYS-MSG) for activating or deactivating a performance characteristic or a service.
