Voip-Pal.com Inc. (“Voip-Pal”, Company”) (OTC Pink: VPLM) is pleased to
announce that they have received the Patent Grant Certificate for its
Mobile Gateway Patent (U.S. Patent No. 8,630,234) from the U.S. Patent
and Trademark Office. This brings Voip-Pal’s total number of issued
patents to four. The previously issued patents are Lawful Intercept
(U.S. Patent No. 8,422,507), Enhanced 911 (U.S. Patent No. 8,537,805),
and Routing, Billing and Rating (U.S. Patent No. 8,542,815). The
Company’s fifth patent, “Uninterrupted Transmission of Internet Protocol
Transmissions During Endpoint Changes” (US Patent Publication No.
20120170574), is currently pending issuance. The Mobile Gateway Patent
Grant Certificate will be posted on www.voip-pal.com
Recently, Voip-Pal Director, Prof. Edwin Candy and Chairman and CEO, Dr.
Thomas E. Sawyer, collaborated on a paper addressing the current state
of VoIP communications and presented Voip-Pal’s patent suite as the
technology necessary to lead the way in the future of
telecommunications. Below is a synopsis of the paper. The entire
document should be available on www.voip-pal.com
Who Will Be the Defacto International Telecom Provider?
With the migration of telecommunication’s services to the Internet, who
will become the dominant provider of Voice services – the national Telco
operations, Digital 3 and 4G mobile network operators, or the so called
Over the Top (OTT) voice providers offering Smart Phones with VoIP
applications? How will the recent FCC decision to allow trials of VoIP
systems using Internet addresses rather than telephone numbers impact
the future of voice telephony? Can the aspirations of VoIP operators to
dominate Voice services and replace the legacy Telcos be achieved?
Juniper Research forecasts annual VoIP revenues to reach US$14 billion
by 2017. While significant, that is much less than forecast for Telcos
by Infomatics Research of US$1.7 trillion and Global Telecom Research of
US$2.1 billion. If VoIP is to become the defacto Voice provider, it
requires integration of VoIP and Telco networks. VoIP networks must be
capable of seamlessly terminating traffic from fixed and mobile sectors
and delivering traffic for termination in the same manner and on terms
as any Telco network. To accomplish this, the VoIP networks must support
the ITU International E164 number protocols in their entirety and be
able to route, bill, rate and transfer call records; in effect the VoIP
network must function like any other Telco network at the point of
VoIP systems initially used end-to-end data packet connections, URL’s or
Internet addresses, an assortment of analog to digital voice codecs,
rather than telephone numbers. Call identification and information
required to manage and transmit calls across networks was missing. The
proliferation of voice codecs precluded transferring between networks,
and traffic could not be delivered or terminated by compliant Telcos.
Heretofore, these fundamental restrictions have prevented VoIP from
becoming a viable alternative to legacy Telco systems. However, these
restrictions can now be easily overcome with patented technology that
will facilitate interconnection of fixed and mobile networks. These
functions are: 1) a system of call control to provide call routing,
rating, and billing; 2) interconnection of VoIP calls to and from mobile
networks; 3) a technique to provide uninterrupted I/P sessions as calls
transition between VoIP mobile and fixed networks; 4) lawful intercept;
and 5) the ability to provide call traceability for emergency calls.
Items 1-3 provide functionality to manage, track calls, and exchange
records between networks; facilitate interconnection; and provide number
recognition and call identification. Items 4 and 5 are essential to meet
legal requirements across regulated networks. These five functions are
defined in the VoIP-Pal patent suite, which will be described in the
patent disclosures. The patents describe the architecture and network
structures that define a Telco compliant VoIP network. These patents are
the result of great foresight, design, system engineering, testing, and
implementation commenced over ten years ago.

The vision of a connected smart home is becoming reality with the application of integrated wireless technologies in devices and appliances. The use of standardized and TCP/IP networked wireless technologies in line-powered and battery operated sensors and controls has led to the adoption of radios in the 2.4GHz band, including Wi-Fi, BT/BLE and 802.15.4 applied ZigBee and Thread. This is driving the need for robust wireless coexistence for multiple radios to ensure throughput performance and th...

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
