Counterpath (CPAH) Receives Mobile Voice Calls Routing Patent

 December 19, 2012 10:50 AM


(By Balaseshan) CounterPath Corp. (NASDAQ: CPAH), a developer of desktop, tablet and mobile VoIP software products and services, said it has received a patent from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office overseeing routing of mobile voice calls.

The company has been awarded patent # US 8,335,187. Titled 'Routing Mobile Voice Calls,' this patent outlines the process by which a Network Convergence Gateway (NCG) detects and monitors a mobile subscriber's location and automatically routes calls to either a packet-based (IP) endpoint or the traditional circuit switched entity.

The primary benefit of this patent is it enables CounterPath to develop communications solutions that provide the end-user the most convenient and cost-effective experience possible.

Essentially, this process exclusively establishes a set of rules for NCGs to follow, based on a variety of pre-determined parameters such as location and strength of data service (3G, 4G or Wi-Fi). These parameters are completely customizable based on the needs established by the business or end-user.

"CounterPath now has intellectual property rights that cover how mobile calls are routed to either packet-based or circuit switched endpoints. This intelligent routing and endpoint association patent enables people to stay connected regardless of location while avoiding costly minutes or roaming charges," said Michael Doyle, Vice President of Technology.

This patent is part of CounterPath's expanding patent portfolio highlighting the company's ongoing commitment to innovation and superior products and solutions such as CounterPath's Network Convergence Gateway (NCG). CounterPath now has 16 patents issued and 7 additional applications pending.

CPAH is trading up 3.54% at $2.05 on Wednesday. The stock has been trading between $1.30 and $3.96 for the past 52 weeks.
