8x8 Awarded Patent for Hosted IP Telephony Technology

By Johanne Torres, TMCnet Contributing Editor

VoIP and video service provider 8x8 announced today that it was awarded U.S. Patent No. 7,035,935 for IP telephony routing technologies used within hosted VoIP business services, including Packet8 Virtual Office.
"We are pleased and proud to have been awarded this patent for the technology incorporated in our Packet8 Virtual Office and similar hosted IP-PBX services,” said 8x8 Chairman and CEO Bryan Martin, in a statement.
Martin continued: “More and more businesses are making the switch from traditional PBX phone systems to hosted business VoIP services. Technological achievements, such as those in this invention, that provide scalable, cost-effective, user-friendly control over communications networks, are vital to the successful deployment of hosted VoIP business phone services.”
8x8 was founded in 1987, and since that time has been awarded sixty-one United States patents for its voice and video communications technologies.
The company also made news last week when it announced on Wednesday that chief financial officer James Sullivan submitted his resignation, in order to pursue another career opportunity. 8x8 has begun a search for a new CFO and announced that it was working with Sullivan on an orderly transition process.
