Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is hailed as the revolutionary technology in modern communications era. However, it comes with own challenges. One of the major challenges includes uninterrupted transmission of IP transmissions containing real time transport protocol (RTP) data during endpoint changes.
To address this, Voip-Pal.com, a provider of VoIP technology, has developed a solution “Uninterrupted Transmission of Internet Protocol Transmissions during Endpoint Changes” that allows for seamless transition from one Internet access point to another providing continuous, uninterrupted connectivity of a mobile device.
As per the latest development, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has allowed its patent application for this technology. Allowance means that prosecution is closed for the patent application and it is allowed for issuance as a patent.
The Uninterrupted Transmission Patent is the fifth and final in Voip-Pal’s portfolio of intellectual property. The Lawful Intercept, Enhanced 911 and Routing, Billing and Rating patents were all issued earlier this year. Another one, the Mobile Gateway (News - Alert) patent was allowed in August and is currently in the final stages before issue.
The Lawful Intercept Technology addresses major challenges associated with the current U.S. Government’s NSA surveillance program.
Earlier this year Voip-Pal.com received the notice of allowance for its patent application “Intercepting Voice over IP Communications and Other Data Communications (News - Alert).”
The technology allows lawful interception of all forms of data and communication and provides a better alternative to create a method of more strategically targeted surveillance without the need to monitor communications from the public at large, keeping peoples’ privacy intact.
Dr. Thomas Sawyer, chairman and CEO of Voip-Pal stated, “With the Notice of Allowance from the U.S. Patent Office for the Uninterrupted Transmission of IP, this concludes the five patent applications in the Voip-Pal portfolio of technology. With these issued and allowed patents, Voip-Pal is in a very strong position to influence the future of VoIP telephony.”
