Frisco, TX, April 24, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Tango Networks, a leading technology provider of Mobility Services to service providers, channel partners and enterprises, today announced the granting of its twenty-fifth patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
Two of the company’s recent patents focus on addressing the worldwide issue of distracted driving: The ability to ascertain who is driving the vehicle and enabling a mobile device to be enforceably managed and controlled without requiring device-based software or apps.
These inventions are part of the company’s overall portfolio of patents around its distributed federated policy technology for enabling enforceable integration of mobile devices with fixed, mobile and cloud communications systems. These patents provide a basis for enabling mobile service providers to selectively and securely share control of their networks with services entities at the network edge for enterprises, agencies and consumers.
“We are pleased to have received our 25th grant from the patent office,” said Andrew Silver, Chief Technical Office and Co-founder of Tango Networks. “We continue to file additional US and foreign applications covering new technologies, products and services related to key growth areas of our business.”
In 2014 the following four patents have been granted to date:
U.S. Patent No. 8,666,382, “Controlling Mobile Device Calls, Text Messages and Data Usage While Operating a Motor Vehicle,” issued March 4, 2014, provides for the use of a mobile device to be enforceably managed when a motor vehicle is in motion without the use of software on the mobile device.
U.S. Patent No. 8,666,395, “System and Method for Speeding Call Originations to a Variety of Devices Using Intelligent Predictive Techniques for Half-call Routing,” issued March 4, 2014, provides for optimal timing for the seizure of resources in various communications systems. This is the company’s fourth patent related to this technology.
U.S. Patent No. 8,664,800, “System, Method, and Apparatus for Using Alternative Numbers for Routing Voice Calls and Short Messages in a Communications Network,” issued January 21, 2014, enables enterprise users to receive or send text messages to/from their mobile devices using their office number instead of their mobile number. This is the company’s third patent related to this technology.
U.S. Patent No. 8,634,822, “Automatic Identification of a Vehicle Driver Based on Driving Behavior,” issued January 21, 2014, enables the driver of a motor vehicle to be identified such that appropriate policies and service subscriptions can be applied to the driver’s mobile devices, in-vehicle systems and service subscriptions.
In addition to the company’s 25 U.S. patents, the company maintains a multitude of applications pending, along with additional foreign pending applications in jurisdictions worldwide.
