Securus defends 2 US patents

US-based civil and criminal justice technology solutions provider Securus Technologies has had two recent wins from the Patent Trial and Appeal board (PTAB) related to patent invalidation filings by Global Tel*Link (GTL).

Despite GTL´s contentions that two Securus patents should be invalidated, the court sided with Securus on these two patents: US Patent No. 7,529,357 — which discloses a system and method for controlling inmate access to a telephone carrier network using voice over internet protocol data packets exchanged between call processing gateways; and US Patent No. 8,000,269 — which discloses systems and methods for processing voice over internet protocol calls originating within a prison facility that include an unauthorized call activity detector.

Headquartered in Dallas, Texas, and serving more than 3,450 public safety, law enforcement and corrections agencies and over 1,200,000 inmates across North America, Securus Technologies is committed to serve and connect by providing emergency response, incident management, public information, investigation, biometric analysis, communication, information management, inmate self-service, and monitoring products and services in order to make our world a safer place to live.
