CAMPBELL, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 22, 2016) - Inventergy Global, Inc. (NASDAQ: INVT), an intellectual property licensing company, announced today that it has received patent grants and notices of allowance (indicating that a patent application qualifies for a patent) for a total of 23 patents. These previously pending patent applications include 15 patents in five families of the IMS/VoIP (IP Multimedia Subsystems/Voice over IP) portfolios originally purchased from Nokia and Huawei and eight patents in three families included in the Mobile Broadband portfolio originally purchased from Panasonic.
Joe Beyers, CEO of Inventergy, stated, "We continue to invest in enhancing our patent portfolio and bringing patent applications to issuance so that we may broaden our monetization revenue stream. This requires a deep technical understanding of our technology assets and the ability to effectively respond to patent examination issues from various patent offices worldwide. The addition of these new patent assets will further strengthen the value and relevancy of our portfolio in the IMS/VoIP infrastructure, mobile broadband infrastructure and mobile user equipment areas for both 3G and 4G systems."
The technology covered by the patents relates to:
1. Three European (EP) patents, granted in Germany, France and Great Britain and originally filed by Huawei, define a resource control method to reduce network traffic by allowing multimedia sessions to flow directly between parties within their access network without taking multiple paths (known as tromboning) through the IMS core network. This translates into higher networking data rates and lower latency to users while freeing up bandwidth in the IMS core network.
2. Three EP patents, granted in Germany, France and Great Britain and originally filed by Huawei, enhance network latency and performance for users by providing a resource control method for finding the most efficient network access when a UE device (e.g. cell phone) has multiple network access capability. Users see quicker connection times and best data rates among the available networks.
3. Five EP patents, granted in Germany, France, Great Britain, Finland and Sweden and originally filed by Huawei, reduce connection time and provide higher voice clarity by providing an efficient method to select the optimum codec (voice coding and decoding software) to be used between users communicating via voice.
4. A US patent originally filed by Nokia provides an efficient method for authentication of a user device as it connects to an IMS core network. Information is carried via the user equipment's access network thereby reducing connection time and providing more reliable authentication. This translates to faster call connection and fewer network delays for users.
5. Three EP patents, to be granted in Germany, France and Great Britain and originally filed by Nokia, provide a more robust and scalable way of signaling between packet-based multimedia steams, allowing for faster and more reliable connections to and between user devices, especially in heavy traffic environments.
1. Three EP patents, granted in Germany, France and Great Britain and originally filed by Panasonic, define a method of power control for user equipment (UE) devices in 3G cellular networks. Precise control of UE transmitted power keeps users in a cell from interfering with each other, while reducing dropped calls and allowing more users within a cell.
2. Three EP patents, to be granted in Germany, France and Great Britain and originally filed by Panasonic, provide a higher speed ARQ (automatic retransmission request) in light of transmission errors, allowing faster data rates and faster communications in LTE cellular systems.
3. Two patents from the same family, to be granted in the US and originally filed by Panasonic, are relevant to LTE cellular communication systems. They provide for a higher speed ARQ when cellular systems are using multiple antennas leading to increased data rates of cellular networks and increased bandwidth, allowing higher performance when multiple users are sharing the resources in a cell.
