January 15, 2013 Hopes for Quick Profit Selling Select Digifonica Patens, Claims

SipTrunkingReport Contributor

It hasn’t been a full year since VoIP-Pal acquired Digifonica. The acquisition established the company’s claim on an array of patented and patent-pending digital voice technologies.

It’s no secret the acquisition helped VoIP-Pal gain a competitive advantage in the booming VoIP market. Now with a number of Fortune 500 companies showing interest in the purchasing of the VoIP-Pal/Digifonica patents and claims to patents, VoIP-Pal seems to be braced for a highly lucrative deal in the New Year.

As goes the industry buzz, VoIP-Pal is not at all in the mood for brushing aside the offers. The company is presently engaged in discussion with various organizations, probably weighing and comparing several deals for the highest monetary gains.

With the company being tightlipped about the details of these talks, industry insiders are also not in a hurry to make any prediction at such an early stage.

VoIP-Pal leveraged Digifonica’s proprietary VoIP softswitch platform to create its retail website,, which debuted only a few months ago.

With VoIP-Pal Engineers introducing several upgraded features to's proprietary softswitch system, the website has become a part of intellectual properties owned by VoIP-Pal.

The site, according to the company, was revamped with an intention to make it compatible with today's smartphone technology and app market.

Included in the patent-pending applications is routing, billing and rating engine (RBR) technology, which allows licensees to perform subscriber management from their own existing subscriber management and billing platforms.

This series of patented technologies are aimed at facilitating fast, anywhere, anytime deployment of Digital Voice solutions, without the risks of infringing on mainstream VoIP patents.

This technology refers to the U.S. Patent Publication No. 20100150328.

The Lawful Intercept technology has triggered immense interest in the industry, and not without reason; the technology reportedly has the potential to revolutionize the ways in which governments and law agencies can perform scheduled and live intercepts on Digital Voice telephone conversations.

Once widely in use, VoIP providers such as Skype may soon be required to comply with government regulations regarding Lawful Intercept.

Mobile Gateway, U.S. Patent Publication No. 20110122827, is designed to allow a single subscriber device to connect automatically to Wi-Fi/WiMax and other wireless data connections.

The patented Enhanced 911   technology is designed to enable true Emergency Calling solutions to Digital Voice subscribers.

Programs relating to Advanced Interoperability are of immense interest for on-the-go subscribers, as they allow for the transfer of in-session digital voice calls between disparate wireless technologies. This technology empowers the subscribers to roam seamlessly between different Wi-Fi, WiMAX, 3G and 4G antenna technologies without losing a call.
