Vonage Holdings Corp. Secures Two New Patents


Monday, 9 Jul 2012 08:00am EDT 

Vonage Holdings Corp. announced that it has been awarded two new patents. The first patent – U.S. Pat. No. 8,213,594 – titled Method and Apparatus for Placing a Long Distance Call Based on a Virtual Phone Number, granted on July 3, 2012, allows consumers to communicate to distant locations without incurring long distance or international calling charges. This is Vonage's third patent related to the use of virtual phone numbers. Vonage's first two patents directed to virtual phone numbers – U.S. Pat. Nos. 7,386,111 and 7,680,262 – were granted on June 10, 2008 and March 16, 2010, respectively. Virtual phone numbers allow people outside a Vonage customer's local calling area to call a Vonage customer for the price of a local call. Vonage customers can choose a virtual phone number in the calling area of a parent, relative or friend or wherever they want to establish a virtual presence. Vonage offers virtual phone numbers across the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Brazil, South Africa, Australia, and Japan, and in 12 other countries. The second patent – U.S. Pat. No. 8,194,843 – titled Method and Apparatus for Busy Override in an Internet Protocol Based Telephone System, granted on June 5, 2012, provides a call waiting override feature for the handling of calls that have been identified as urgent based upon the pattern of call attempts from a given caller.
