Call Progress Analysis

The automated determination by a piece of telecommunications equipment as to the result of dialing a number. For example, the result of the analysis might be a busy tone, ringing at the other end but no answer after a pre-set number of rings, an answered call and so on. The analysis involves detecting the various call progress tones which will be generated by the telephone network as the call is put through.
