Context Connect Awarded China Patent for Directory Services

Newburyport, MA, June 22, 2009 --( Context Connect, LLC. (“CCL” or “the Company”), a leading provider of private directory-based connectivity services, today announced it has been awarded China Patent #ZL 01812818.1 - A System and Method for Directory Services and eCommerce Across Multi-Provider Networks. The patent is focused on the ability to ‘find and connect’ individuals without requiring or needing the actual contact number (e.g., phone number) through a DNS-based contextual platform. The patent extends to directory-based connectivity calls as well as electronic transactions or eCommerce via mobile devices.

The patent describes methods for providing secure connectivity across disparate networks or service providers. Contextual, DNS-based directory listings are created by consumers or groups, while connectivity to individuals is made without revealing valuable customer information and data – thus ensuring a more appropriate way of getting connected (self provisioned contextual listings) through a private-based platform (no phone numbers revealed). The patent covers directory assistance/enquiry listings by consumers and merchants that do not reveal actual connectivity details like DNS-like registrar services and vanity-based mobile directories.

“We continue to broaden our IP portfolio globally,” stated Sunny Ahn, CEO and President of Context Connect. “Our portfolio enables us to protect the concept of a global directory platform that protects the privacy of the individual while creating revenues for service providers.”

CCL provides solutions that enable cross-platform connectivity that allows individuals to ‘find and connect’ to wireless subscribers across multiple devices and multiple provider platforms. The Company also provides a private mass notification service, ccAlert™, that allows a single message to thousands of people, via the communication devices they have.
