PR Newswire

HOLMDEL, N.J., Oct. 31, 2013

HOLMDEL, N.J., Oct. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Vonage Holdings Corp. (NYSE: VG),
a leading provider of communication services connecting people through
cloud-connected devices worldwide, today announced that it was granted three
new patents in October by the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

U.S. Pat. No. 8,571,060, "Systems and Methods for Terminating Telephony
Communications to Mobile Telephony Devices," relates to a system that
activates a call forwarding feature to enable low-cost incoming calls on
mobile phones while travelling internationally.

U.S. Pat. No. 8,571,191, "Method and Apparatus for New Subscriber Access to
Telephony Features," was issued for a solution that provides an efficient way
for distributing Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) services on a variety of
platforms and communications devices. When a consumer wishes to download a
VoIP communications app, this technology recognizes attributes of the user's
device – for example, whether it is an iPhone^®,  Android™ or other device –
and will automatically provide a link to the most compatible version of the
app.

U.S. Pat. No. 8,553,570, "Systems and Methods of Routing IP Telephony Packet
Communications," covers advanced call routing techniques that ensure the path
for a call meets specific requirements including call quality, encryption and
conferencing. The call path is automatically and seamlessly modified to route
through equipment that can support the requirements of the call, resulting in
greater consistency and quality of service for consumers. The patented
technology is particularly beneficial in situations where network conditions
worsen during the call, which otherwise would result in a noticeable drop in
quality.

"We are pleased that the Patent Office has issued the '060 patent, our first
patent relating to our international roaming solution," said Chief Legal
Officer Kurt M. Rogers. "This patent, along with additional pending
applications related to our roaming solution, will be integral in protecting
our investment in technology innovation and development. The '191 and '570
patents also cover valuable features that reflect our continued focus on
mobile VoIP and service quality improvements."     

Vonage has been granted 12 patents and filed more than 80 patent applications
in 2013. The company now has 30 U.S. patents and more than 200 U.S. patent
applications pending, along with many foreign patents and pending applications
in jurisdictions worldwide.
