Patent for Sale:

Secure Digital Communications over the Internet and other Networks via an overlayed P2P network    

Secure VoIP voice calls, video, Instant Messaging (IM), Short Message Services (SMS), or Peer-to-Peer (P2P) communications while maintaining privacy over the Internet

Overview

Hardware and software provide secure VoIP voice calls, video, Instant Messaging (IM), Short Message Services (SMS), or Peer-to-Peer (P2P) communications while maintaining privacy over the Internet and other communications networks such as the pubic switched telephone network (PSTN) to and from any network device through a virtual private network infrastructure interconnecting private VoIP network devices. The method and system allow a network device to function as an IP private branch exchange (PBX) or a private VoIP gateway and provide and control VoIP voice communications without using other public or private VoIP gateways or VoIP servers or devices on a communications network such as the PSTN or the Internet.

Primary Application of the Technology

Any VoIP communications providers such as SKPE, VONAGE, OMMA, etc. or P2P network providers, etc.

The Problem Solved by the Technology

Private communications without using the Internet or Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) via a private P2P network overlay.

How the Technology Solves the Problem

The hardware and software allow a network device to function as an IP private branch exchange (PBX) or a private VoIP gateway and provide and control VoIP voice communications without using other public or private VoIP gateways or VoIP servers or devices on a communications network such as the PSTN or the Internet but instead use a private P2P network.

Competitive Advantage

The hardware and softwre allows individuals to use normal phones/landlines and a network (such as the Internet or PSTN) to make free and direct phone calls to the phones of other users anywhere in the world. Users are able, using the VoIP hardware device and the VoIP application on their own network devices, to setup their own private telephone network of nodes and gateways with interfaces to and from their Interent connection or PSTN landlines but on a private P2P network.

Patent Summary

U.S. Patent Classes & Classifications Covered in this listing:

Class 370: Multiplex Communications

This is the generic class for multiplexing or duplexing systems, methods, or apparatus.

Subclass 352: Combined circuit switching and packet switching
Subclass 466: Converting between protocols
Subclass 493: Combined voice and data transmission

Class 379: Telephonic Communications

(1) Systems, processes and instruments for the two-way electrical transmission of intelligible audio information having arbitrary content over a link including an electrical conductor, between spaced apart locations, so as to enable conversation therebetween, and intended for the private use of a listener or a group of listeners. The term "intelligible" used above is intended to include the capability for transmission of speech or the like (e.g., music), rather than restriction to a specified audible signal, such as a bell or buzzer. (2) Switching, signalling or signal transmission peculiar to, or specified as for a telephone or a telephone system, except for multiplex communications as indicated in Lines With Other Classes.

Subclass 279: Control reliability (e.g., redundancy)

Class 709: Electrical Computers And Digital Processing Systems: Multicomputer Data Transferring

This class provides for an electrical computer or digital data processing system or corresponding data processing method including apparatus or steps for transferring data or instruction information between a plurality of computers wherein the computers employ the data or instructions before or after transferring and the employing affects said transfer of data or instruction information. The class includes - process or apparatus for transferring data among a plurality of spatially distributed (i.e., situated, at plural locations) computers or digital data processing systems via one or more communications media (e.g., computer networks).
