Voip-Pal.com Inc. Announces Receipt of Mobile Gateway Patent Grant Certificate and Produces a Paper on the State of Current and Future VoIP Communications

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 shortly.

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 shortly.

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 interconnection.

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.
