Voip-Pal.com Inc.'s Enhanced 911 Patent Application Receives Allowance for Issuance as a Patent

BELLEVUE, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Voip-Pal.com Inc. ("Voip-Pal") (OTC Pink: VPLM) is pleased to announce that on July 5, 2013, the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) mailed the Notice of Allowance on its patent application "EMERGENCY ASSISTANCE CALLING FOR VOICE OVER IP COMMUNICATIONS SYSTEMS" ("Enhanced 911"). This notice of allowance means that prosecution is closed for the Enhanced 911 patent application and it is allowed for issuance as a patent. The Enhanced 911 technology satisfies the major requirement for the emergency response system which is the ability to call back the person making an emergency call to 9-1-1 in the event of a dropped connection.

Currently 70% of all emergency calls to 9-1-1 are made via mobile or VoIP telephones and that number continues to increase. The major challenge for emergency response personnel is the ability to trace the call from a 911 mobile or VoIP caller since wireless telephones are not linked to a fixed location or address.1

"This is another major milestone for Voip-Pal and its shareholders," stated CEO, Dennis Chang. "Our Enhanced 911 patent is an important step forward in VoIP technology and public safety, in that it solves the major challenges VoIP users face when accessing 9-1-1 emergency services The ability for VoIP callers to be called back and located after a dropped call to 9-1-1 could prove to be a matter of life and death." Mr. Chang continued, "With the number of daily calls to 9-1-1 made via VoIP growing so rapidly, the need for this Enhanced 911 technology is very timely. Additionally, this patent could prove to provide a significant revenue stream for Voip-Pal while at the same time resolving a major public safety concern."
