Virtual PBX Reduces International Dialing Rates by as Much as 80 Percent

SAN JOSE, CA — (Marketwire) — 12/06/11 — Virtual PBX , inventor and leading supplier of hosted PBX services, announced today that it is reducing the cost of international calling in all of its plans by up to 80 percent. With this change, calls to multiple international locations — such as land lines in London and Buenos Aires, and mobile phones in Hong Kong — are as low as 1.9 cents per minute. The new rates are available now with no added fees or plan changes to all existing and new Virtual PBX customers on all plans.

 

Virtual-PBX-Systems

“Virtual PBX is always working to find ways to save money for our customers,” said Paul Hammond, CEO of Virtual PBX. “We already offer local numbers in over 40 countries for clients that want an international presence and want their callers to avoid the high costs of international dialing. Now we’ve made it possible for our customers to call out to international destinations with very low costs as well.”


The new international rates build on the company’s extensive history of providing cost-effective voice services to reach and receive vital business calls to and from locations around the world.

Virtual PBX, a U.S.-based company, started offering outbound dialing to international destinations when it developed the first hosted PBX in 1996. Now, clients can make calls out to international numbers or have employees receive calls on non-U.S. phones with a much lower rate per minute. And using the company’s Open Systems Initiative, calls can be routed to VoIP phones anywhere, for free.

In December 2009, Virtual PBX started offering local inbound numbers to their clients in thousands of cities worldwide, providing clients the ability to publish local numbers in these cities while maintaining business operations in the location of their choice. The combination of low outbound rates to international phone numbers, free VoIP calling anywhere, and local inbound numbers in both the U.S. and other countries makes Virtual PBX a strong hosted PBX choice for companies with personnel, clients or business activities in almost any global location.

Specific rate information can be found on the company’s website.

Voip-Pal.com Inc. Applauds the United States Supreme Court on its Unanimous Ruling Regarding Enhanced Monetary …

BELLEVUE, Washington–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Voip-Pal.com Inc. (“Voip–Pal”, the “Company”) (OTC Pink:VPLM) and its
Board of Directors applaud the recent ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court
regarding patent infringement lawsuits. The recent decision is a major
victory for patent holders and provides greater protection for the
intellectual property rights of inventors and innovators. The decision
opens the door for larger punitive damage awards in cases of willful
infringement.

On June 13, 2016 the U.S. Supreme Court unanimously overturned the
“rigid” two-part test previously utilized to determine the amount of
punitive damages courts could award the patent owner in cases of willful
infringement not to exceed three times the amount found or assessed. The
Court also lowered the patent owner’s burden of proof standard from
“clear and convincing evidence” to a “preponderance of the evidence”. In
the Court’s opinion Chief Justice John Roberts described the previous
standard as “unduly rigid” and “excludes from discretionary punishment
many of the most culpable offenders, such as the ‘wanton and malicious
pirate’ who intentionally infringes another’s patent…for no purpose
other than to steal the patent holder’s business.”

Complete opinion: http://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/15pdf/14-1513_db8e.pdf.

Voip-Pal General Counsel and Director Dr. Ryan Thomas stated, “The Halo
Electronics, Inc. v. Pulse Electronics, Inc. decision
provides welcome direction from the Supreme Court that the rationale for
punitive damages in patent cases should follow the ‘nearly two centuries
of enhanced damages under patent law’ that allowed ‘punitive
or ‘increased’ damages’ to be recovered ‘in a case of willful or
bad-faith infringement.'”

Emil Malak, CEO of Voip-Pal commented, “We welcome the Supreme Court’s
decision and see this as a major victory for all patent owners and
innovators. This ruling will once again encourage innovation which has
lagged in recent years due in part to cumbersome patent litigation which
often makes it difficult for inventors to be properly compensated.” Mr.
Malak also said, “We look forward to the IPR review and to having our
day in court with Apple, Verizon and ATT.”

The Company also announced the Form 10 Registration Statement filed with
the Securities and Exchange Commission in April is now effective making
Voip-Pal a fully SEC reporting company subject to the reporting
requirements of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934. The Company has
also begun the application process to apply for up-listing to the OTCQB.
That process is expected to take about 4 weeks.

About Voip-Pal.com Inc.

Voip-Pal.Com, Inc. (“Voip-Pal”) is a publicly traded corporation (OTC
Pink:VPLM)
headquartered in Bellevue, Washington. The Company owns a portfolio of
patents relating to Voice-over-Internet Protocol (“VoIP”) technology
that it is currently looking to monetize.

Research and Markets – Global Mobile VoIP Market 2016-2020 with Big Ant, Cisco Jabber, HipChat, IBM Lotus …

DUBLIN, June 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ —

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the “Global Mobile VoIP Market 2016-2020” report to their offering.

The global mobile voice over internet protocol (VoIP) market to grow at a CAGR of 28.47% during the period 2016-2020.

Global Mobile Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP) Market 2016-2020, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the market landscape and its growth prospects over the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.

A major trend which is contributing to market growth is the low total cost of ownership. VoIP technology enables data traffic and voice communication traffic integration into a single network to reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) associated with a combined voice or data network. The integration of multiple media types such as voice, data, and video into a single network eliminates infrastructure and maintenance redundancies, which also reduces capital and operational costs.

According to the report, a key growth driver is the high operational flexibility offered by mobile VoIP. Enterprises adopt varying mobile technologies at different instances for decision-making processes and conducting meetings on the go, irrespective of the networks or hotspots. mVoIP is primarily focused via Wi-Fi hotspots due to high-speed data connections. In circuit-switched voice networks, different layers including the transport, call control, and application layers are grouped into single proprietary systems, which are disaggregated into separate components in IP-based networks.

Further, the report states that one challenge that is hampering market growth is the unreliable quality of service. The delays occurring in the data network are dependent upon configuration, capacity, performance, and load.

To calculate the market size, the report considers the following:

– The service revenue obtained from enterprise users

– The service revenue obtained from individual premium users

– The service revenue obtained from individual freemium users

Key vendors

– Big Ant

– Cisco Jabber

– HipChat

– IBM Lotus Sametime

Apple’s FaceTime subject of renewed VoIP patent infringement lawsuit

Apple on Friday was slapped with yet another patent lawsuit leveled by a non-practicing entity, this time a renewed complaint dealing with VoIP technologies targeting FaceTime video and audio software.


Straight Path Communication President and CEO David Jonas rings closing bell on company’s first day of NYSE trading.
Source: Straight Path

In a lawsuit lodged with the Northern California District Court, Straight Path Group, a subsidiary of fixed wireless spectrum leasing firm Straight Path Communications, alleges Apple’s FaceTime infringes on five patents previously owned by the NetSpeak Corporation relating to a product called WebPhone. The complaint is a renewal of Straight Path’s 2014 case, which was dismissed without prejudice in 2015.

The properties in part cover realtime video and audio conferencing, as well as point-to-point communications between devices or applications with dynamic IP addresses. In particular, Straight Path is leveraging U.S. Patent Nos. 6,009,469, 6,108,704, 6,131,121, 6,701,365 and 7,149,208, each with claims dating back to 1995. Interestingly, each of the patents also survived re-examination by the Patent Trial and Appeals Board (PTAB) after facing challenges to their validity.

Straight Path asserts the owned properties solve a fundamental problem that arises when attempting to establish communication links between two computer programs, or alternatively individual devices, that are not permanently connected to a network. Specifically, the patents provide methods of determining whether a program is on a network, identifying that program’s IP address and ultimately establishing point-to-point communication sessions with a second program.

As described in various patent embodiments, a first user might open a VoIP app to place a call to a second user. When that program connects to the internet, it transmits its current IP address to an offsite server, which simultaneously logs that IP information and marks the first app as “online.” The server determines whether the second user is also online using the same method. If the second user is marked as “online,” the server forwards their IP address information to the first user, who can then send a request to communicate. Importantly, when a user logs off, the database is updated to reflect their current status.

Apple infringes on the protected patents by using Apple Push Network services and Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) technology to track user IP addresses and facilitate point-to-point communications via FaceTime, the complaint says. Further, Straight Path claims FaceTime hardware integration with iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Mac are in infringement of technology implemented in WebPhone some 20 years ago.

According to the document, NetSpeak’s WebPhone was selected as an “Editor’s Choice” by both PC Magazine and Computer Telephony Magazine, and “Product of the Year” by Internet Telephony magazine, in the mid-1990s. Despite these accolades, NetSpeak ceased to exist in 2001 after a merger with Adir Technologies, which itself liquidated all assets to Net2Phone in 2003.

Straight Path seeks unspecified damages related to all five patents-in-suit, reimbursement of legal expenses and other relief deemed fit by the court.

Today’s suit is the second to target FaceTime this month, the first being a complaint filed with the patent holder-friendly Eastern Texas District Court by Uniloc.

Reclaim Your Time With Multi-Tenant PBX

Once upon a time, a telecom start-up chose the least expensive PBX system and began to build. As the hard work began to pay off, the telecom grew while the PBX system stayed the same. Each new sale was progressively less exciting because of the time and effort it would take to purchase and host a dedicated solution.

Far from a fairy tale ending, we have heard this story time and again. That is exactly why we created Multi-Tenant PBX.
