RingPlus: About Real Time In-Call Translation

Los Angeles, CA, June 04, 2014 --(PR.com)-- On May 27, 2014, Microsoft demonstrated the Skype real-time translation app, trailing more than one year behind mobile carrier RingPlus, which deployed its real-time In-Call Translation Service and made it available to all RingPlus users on March 11, 2013. Please follow Link 1 for the RingPlus demonstration and Link 2 for the Microsoft demonstration.

At the Code Conference last week, Microsoft presented the Skype Translator app that should provide fluent, cross-lingual conversations between speakers of different languages. Gurdeep Pall, Microsoft’s Corporate Vice President of Skype and Lync, demonstrated the technology to the public while the RingPlus team was busy inviting their users’ friends and families to party with celebrities and other RingPlus users.

RingPlus has plenty of reasons to party: as a technologically advanced telco and low cost cell phone service in the United States (Adrian Covert, CNN May 15, 2014), attracting users is not a problem for them. And how advanced is RingPlus technology? RingPlus launched the live In-Call Translation Service more than 18 months before Microsoft demonstrated the Skype real-time translation app. RingPlus also demonstrated the technology to nearly all major telecoms worldwide.

RingPlus is a hands-on telecom and is well known for developing disruptive technology and being the first to market. In fact, RingPlus mobile users have long been enjoying access to translation services in over 12 languages on the Sprint®* Nationwide Network. Whether Microsoft’s solution to tackling translation technology is similar to or totally different from the RingPlus proprietary solution is not yet known.

RingPlus has a pending patent application (US 13840415) for a method for providing an application service, including a managed translation service, that is expected to be granted in the near future. The patent will significantly increase the value of RingPlus as a telecom and a technology powerhouse. The technology was invented by RingPlus CTO Evan McGee, Bryan Rite, and RingPlus Founder and CEO Karl Seelig. In addition, RingPlus developed a complimentary product to the In-Call Translator, called RingPlus Global, which breaks the shackles binding US-CDMA carriers.

The enforceability of one of RingPlus’ inventions, U.S. Patent No. 7,006,608 for RingBack tone replacement, which is now a cornerstone of RingPlus services, was challenged by none other than AT&T Wireless (indemnified by Ericsson). The enforceability of this patent was upheld in 2010 in a precedential ruling in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington, D.C., after a 5-year long, multi-million dollar legal battle.

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.
In his session at WebRTC Summit, Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, will look at creating interactive communications via the web by adding messaging, file transfer, and group communication (group chat and audio/video conferencing) into the web experience.

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
What if, during a snow emergency, an on-the-ground sensor could automatically trigger a relevant emergency notification related to snowfall and road impact. And then, after it’s triggered, that notification is delivered intelligently to individuals based on an extensive set of rules designed to alert the most available and capable responders. This “what if” question about “smart highways” is short-sighted. We are already there, and we are only getting started. While mainstream attention is paid to machine-to-machine communications, new technologies are being developed to make these communica...

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
