Voip-Pal.com Inc. (“Voip-Pal,” or the “Company”) is a publicly traded corporation (OTC: VPLM) incorporated in December of 1997 in the State of Nevada and headquartered in Bellevue, Washington. In 2013, Voip-Pal acquired Digifonica International (DIL) Limited (“Digifonica”) in order to fund, co-develop and complete Digifonica's patent suite.
Digifonica was founded in 2003 with the vision that the internet would be the future of all forms of telecommunications. Digifonica assembled a team of twenty top engineers with expertise in Linux and Internet telephony which developed solutions for future connectivity using the internet. The team developed and operationalized a software suite that would later be patented with the USPTO, with applications providing solutions in five core areas of internet connectivity:
1.) Routing, Billing and Rating (“RBR”);
2.) Lawful Intercept;
3.) Short Number Dialing (Enhanced 911);
4.) Mobile Gateway; and
5.) Uninterrupted Transmission
In order to properly test these applications, Digifonica built and operated three production nodes in Vancouver (Peer 1), London, UK (Teliasonera), and Denmark. Upon having successfully operationalized the technology, Digifonica began filing for patents with USPTO. To date, all of Digifonica's patents have been allowed, and thorough prior art searches have found there to be no existing prior art. On August 27, 2015, the USPTO allowed the last of the major Digifonica patents.
Voip-Pal considers its patent US 8,542,815 “Producing routing messages for voice over IP communications” and its continuation patent US 9,179,005 to be fundamental to modern telecommunications using internet protocol. Accordingly, Voip-Pal and Digifonica consider themselves to have a stake among the vast subscribership which utilizes its routing and call classification technology for all applicable voice, messaging and internet payments employing messaging routing classifications.
The Company is currently seeking to monetize its fundamental patents through a sale or licensure of its technology.
On February 9th, 2016 Voip-Pal initiated a suit for patent infringement in the Federal District Court in Las Vegas, Nevada against Apple, Inc ("Apple"). The case number is 2:16-CV-00260.
On February 10th, 2016, Voip-Pal initiated a suit for patent infringement in the Federal District Court in Las Vegas, Nevada against AT&T, Inc. (AT&T) and Verizon Wireless (Verizon). The case number is 2:16-CV-00271.
In conjunction with its patent infringement suits against Apple, Inc. (case no. 2:16-CV-00260) and against AT&T, Inc. and Verizon Wireless (case no 2:16-CV-00271), Voip-Pal has prepared a comprehensive document (linked below) to help shareholders, the media and other interested parties better understand key details of the legal actions taken by the Company.
Voip-Pal's intellectual property value is derived from ten (10) issued USPTO patents including five parent patents, one of which is foundational and the others which build upon the former.
The five (5) core patents are:
1.) Routing, Billing & Rating ("RBR");
2.) Lawful Intercept;
3.) Enhanced E-911;
4.) Mobile Gateway; and
5.) Uninterrupted Transmission
The Voip-Pal inventions described in the ten-patent portfolio provide the means to integrate VoIP services with any of the Telco systems to create a seamless service using either legacy telephone numbers of IP addresses, and enhance the performance and value of VoIP implementations worldwide.
The Voip-Pal patented technology provides Universal numbering ubiquity; network value as defined by Metcalfe; the imperative of interconnect, termination, and recompense for delivery of calls by other networks; regulatory compliance in regulated markets; interconnection of VoIP networks to mobile and fixed networks; and maintenance of uninterrupted VoIP calls across fixed, mobile, and WiFi networks.
While there are several popular VoIP implementations, VoIP is utilized in many other lesser-known places and by practically every modern telephony system vendor, network supplier, and retail and wholesale carrier.
Communication over internet protocol has been and continues to be a green field for innovation that has spawned numerous inventions, greatly benefitting consumers large and small across the globe.
There are several well-known brands that offer retail VoIP implementations. However, VoIP is utilized in many other lesser-known places and by practically every modern telephony system vendor, network supplier, and retail and wholesale carrier.
Wherever a metered VoIP or IP communication is routed, it is likely already benefitting from a Voip-Pal invention.
This patent was issued on September 24, 2013, as US Patent No. 8,542,815. A Response to Europe has also been filed. The Company believes that this patent application technology will be the foundation of any modern commercial VoIP system. It is an essential patent to all VoIP communications. RBR has taken millions of investment dollars and several years to develop and solidify into perhaps the most important architectural solution for VoIP.
This patent was issued on April 16, 2013 as US Patent No. 8,422,507. Lawful Intercept Continuation patent application was filed with the USPTO. This Continuation leverages patented technology for instant and text messages, and inherits the same Priority date of November 29, 2007. A Response in Europe has also been filed. Lawful Intercept is a revolutionary technology that addresses the national and international demands by governments to enable law agencies the ability to perform scheduled and live intercepts on VoIP telephone conversations. Network Service providers such as Skype may soon want to be in compliance with government regulations regarding Lawful Intercept. The advantage of this patent is that it is truly undetectable by the intercept target; as opposed to many prior art technologies. Various governments are considering legislating Lawful Intercept as a mandatory technology for any VoIP provider.
This patent was issued on January 14, 2014 as US Patent No. 8,630,234. The Company believes that Mobile Gateway technology can be applied to any modern cell phone allowing Internet calls to be transparent for the users. All current commercial techniques for making cell phone Internet calls require the users to make additional actions, which are not necessary with the Mobile Gateway patent application. Mobile Gateway is a sophisticated application that uses a telephone's existing mobile network and accesses local reserved phone numbers from the call origination site, thus enabling the user to make a long distance or international call at the local call billing rate.
This patent was issued on September 17, 2013 as US Patent No. 8,537,805. Enhanced 911 technology satisfies the major requirement for the emergency response system which is the ability to call back the person making an emergency call to 9-1-1 in the event of a dropped connection. Currently, 70% of all emergency calls to 911 are made via mobile or VoIP telephones and that number continues to increase. The major challenge for emergency response personnel is the ability to trace the call from a 911 mobile or VoIP caller since wireless telephones are not linked to a fixed location or address.
This patent was issued on March 18, 2014 as US Patent No. 8,675,566.
