Who Will Be the Defacto International Telecom Provider?
With the migration of telecommunication’s services to the Internet, who will become the dominant provider of Voice services – the national Telco operations, Digital 3 and 4G mobile network operators, or the so called Over the Top (OTT) voice providers offering Smart Phones with VoIP applications? How will the recent
VoIP systems initially used end-to-end data packet connections, URL’s or Internet addresses, an assortment of analog to digital voice codecs, rather than telephone numbers. Call identification and information required to manage and transmit calls across networks was missing. The proliferation of voice codecs precluded transferring between networks, and traffic could not be delivered or terminated by compliant Telcos.
Heretofore, these fundamental restrictions have prevented VoIP from becoming a viable alternative to legacy Telco systems. However, these restrictions can now be easily overcome with patented technology that will facilitate interconnection of fixed and mobile networks. These functions are: 1) a system of call control to provide call routing, rating, and billing; 2) interconnection of VoIP calls to and from mobile networks; 3) a technique to provide uninterrupted I/P sessions as calls transition between VoIP mobile and fixed networks; 4) lawful intercept; and 5) the ability to provide call traceability for emergency calls. Items 1-3 provide functionality to manage, track calls, and exchange records between networks; facilitate interconnection; and provide number recognition and call identification. Items 4 and 5 are essential to meet legal requirements across regulated networks. These five functions are defined in the VoIP-Pal patent suite, which will be described in the patent disclosures. The patents describe the architecture and network structures that define a Telco compliant VoIP network. These patents are the result of great foresight, design, system engineering, testing, and implementation commenced over ten years ago.
