Title: Method and system in an intelligent communications network for a programmable call control utilizing removable configurable control mechanisms

Abstract: A method and system for implementing a communications network having configurable control mechanisms for the identification and transference of particular types of communications data. Detection points are established within the communications network, wherein particular types of communications data transferred through the detection points may be identified. Removable configurable control mechanisms are associated with the detection points mechanisms that manage the transference of communications data through the detection points, such that the removable configurable control mechanisms may be easily replaced and updated without deconstructing the communications network or extensively delaying communication services within the communications network. The communications network can include a wireless or wireline communications or a combination thereof. The configurable control mechanisms include triggers within calls or communication transactions which can be armed to transfer control and call-related information to external nodes that may be composed of off-board service platforms.
