Mobivity Granted U.S. Patent for Monitoring Wireless Carrier Networks
PHOENIX, AZ -- (Marketwired) -- 08/06/13 -- Mobivity Holdings Corp. (OTCQB: MFON), an award-winning provider of proprietary mobile marketing technologies and solutions, announced that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has granted the Company a patent that invents a method for Mobivity (MFON.OB) to monitor wireless carrier networks from the outside for real time network status and quality metrics.
The patent, the Company's fourth, was published under U.S. Patent Number 8463306B1 and invents a system to safeguard time sensitive mobile marketing messages from being sent out despite unknown wireless carrier delays threatening the successful delivery of marketing messages within their intended timeline.
"If a user of our platform is wanting to send out a time sensitive offer via mobile message, i.e. 'come in the next hour and get a free sandwich,' then it's imperative we know ahead of time if a certain wireless operator is experiencing delays in its SMS network," said Dennis Becker, Chief Executive Officer of Mobivity. "The carriers don't provide real time network status. This invention has solved that problem by allowing Mobivity to continually monitor carrier networks to ensure time sensitive marketing messages aren't sent out during carrier network delay periods."
