Voip-Pal/Digifonica's Lawful Intercept Patent Application discloses the most efficient way of intercepting voice over the Internet. This revolutionary technology was developed to address the national and international demands by governments to enable law agencies the ability to perform scheduled and live intercepts (wire-taps) on Digital Voice telephone conversations. This Patent Application becomes increasingly more significant as more and more countries are beginning to require telecom companies to have Lawful Intercept capability.
Mobile Gateway is a patent technology that has been developed to provide a mechanism for a single subscriber device to connect using WiFi, WiMAX and other wireless data connections. The Mobile Gateway technologies will enable cellular operators to permit call sessions established on WiFi/WiMAX to seamlessly roam back onto the standard GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications) network when the subscriber leaves the range of the WiMAX/WiFi antenna.
