Voip-Pal.com Inc. (“Voip-Pal”, Company”) (OTC Pink: VPLM) is pleased to announce that they have received the Patent Grant Certificate for its Mobile Gateway Patent (U.S. Patent No. 8,630,234) from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. This brings Voip-Pal’s total number of issued patents to four. The previously issued patents are Lawful Intercept (U.S. Patent No. 8,422,507), Enhanced 911 (U.S. Patent No. 8,537,805), and Routing, Billing and Rating (U.S. Patent No. 8,542,815).

The Mobile Gateway Patent Grant Certificate will be posted on www.voip-pal.com shortly.

Recently, Voip-Pal Director, Prof. Edwin Candy and Chairman and CEO, Dr. Thomas E. Sawyer, collaborated on a paper addressing the current state of VoIP communications and presented Voip-Pal’s patent suite as the technology necessary to lead the way in the future of telecommunications. Below is a synopsis of the paper. The entire document should be available on www.voip-pal.com shortly.

Who Will Be the Defacto International Telecom Provider?

With the migration of telecommunication’s services to the Internet, who will become the dominant provider of Voice services – the national Telco operations, Digital 3 and 4G mobile network operators, or the so called Over the Top (OTT) voice providers offering Smart Phones with VoIP applications? How will the recent FCC decision to allow trials of VoIP systems using Internet addresses rather than telephone numbers impact the future of voice telephony? Can the aspirations of VoIP operators to dominate Voice services and replace the legacy Telcos be achieved?

Juniper Research forecasts annual VoIP revenues to reach US$14 billion by 2017. While significant, that is much less than forecast for Telcos by Infomatics Research of US$1.7 trillion and Global Telecom Research of US$2.1 billion. If VoIP is to become the defacto Voice provider, it requires integration of VoIP and Telco networks. VoIP networks must be capable of seamlessly terminating traffic from fixed and mobile sectors and delivering traffic for termination in the same manner and on terms as any Telco network. To accomplish this, the VoIP networks must support the ITU International E164 number protocols in their entirety and be able to route, bill, rate and transfer call records; in effect the VoIP network must function like any other Telco network at the point of interconnection.

VoIP systems initially used end-to-end data packet connections, URL’s or Internet addresses, an assortment of analog to digital voice codecs, rather than telephone numbers. Call identification and information required to manage and transmit calls across networks was missing. The proliferation of voice codecs precluded transferring between networks, and traffic could not be delivered or terminated by compliant Telcos.

Heretofore, these fundamental restrictions have prevented VoIP from becoming a viable alternative to legacy Telco systems. However, these restrictions can now be easily overcome with patented technology that will facilitate interconnection of fixed and mobile networks. These functions are: 1) a system of call control to provide call routing, rating, and billing; 2) interconnection of VoIP calls to and from mobile networks; 3) a technique to provide uninterrupted I/P sessions as calls transition between VoIP mobile and fixed networks; 4) lawful intercept; and 5) the ability to provide call traceability for emergency calls. Items 1-3 provide functionality to manage, track calls, and exchange records between networks; facilitate interconnection; and provide number recognition and call identification. Items 4 and 5 are essential to meet legal requirements across regulated networks. These five functions are defined in the VoIP-Pal patent suite, which will be described in the patent disclosures. The patents describe the architecture and network structures that define a Telco compliant VoIP network. These patents are the result of great foresight, design, system engineering, testing, and implementation commenced over ten years ago.

Manas Petroleum Corp. Company Update

Manas Petroleum Corp. Company Update

Symbol Price Change
MNP.V 0.045 0.0000

BAAR, SWITZERLAND–(Marketwired – Nov 6, 2013) –  Manas Petroleum Corp. (“Manas”) (TSX VENTURE:MNP); (OTCBB:MNAP) is pleased to provide the following update.

DWM Petroleum AG (“DWM”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Manas, is in the process of acquiring existing oil producing assets whose present output has the potential to be restored to earlier levels (between 50 and 3500 bopd per well) and possibly increased beyond that through the rehabilitation of these fields which are presently producing 300 bopd from depths greater than 100m.

These fields are presently run-down due to the break-up of the Soviet Union when the disappearance of ongoing investment coupled with the lack of access to newer technology resulted in these fields not being maintained. In addition to the assets’ rehabilitation potential for these fields, they have upside potential for additional development, exploration and appraisal.

Effective September 27, 2013, and subject to obtaining any regulatory approvals or consents DWM has opted to acquire 65% of the company that presently owns a majority interest in the Tajik operating company which holds the oilfield assets for an amount equivalent to USD 10.1 million dollars. This transaction is scheduled to be closed prior to year-end 2013. In addition, DWM is in actively in discussions with an investment group to provide the funding to acquire the remaining shares in the Tajik operating company as well as provide the necessary funding for the rehabilitation program.

In parallel, DWM’s technical field studies are continuing with more than 300 wells being analyzed and an initial work program in development. Presently there are approximately 100 wells are ready for work-over operations.

Exploration project in Tajikistan:

Presently, DWM is in active negotiations with several experienced exploration and production groups from Russia, China and the European Union in-order to farm out up to 70% of its current 90% interest in CJSC Somon Oil (“Somon”), the operating company of the 2 exploration blocks having the licenses for risked resources of more than 400 million MMBO. Each of these prospective partners has (either or both) petroleum exploration and production experience. Additionally, there are extended discussions occurring with the possibility of combining the exploration project with the rehabilitation project discussed above.

The project has two drill ready prospects. Drilling is expected to commence upon signing the agreements with the new Somon partner. One target is located between two fields near producing wells. The second target is a sub-salt prospect with analogues in producing fields in Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. Both targets have a combined potential of 180MM BO of risked resources out of the current total potential of the prospect portfolio.

Over the past several months, all the original seismic taken over the subsalt target has been reprocessed resulting in a re-location of the subsurface target; this new location is far less risky.

Mongolia

Current exploration phase of both licenses have been extended until May 20, 2015, based on a one (1) year moratorium agreed to with the Government of Mongolia. This moratorium was entered between the Petroleum authority of Mongolia and Gobi Energy (the operator of the Mongolian assets) to allow time to add certain acreage which is between the two blocks.

Albania – Petromanas DWM presently owns approximately 7.2% of the common shares of Petromanas Energy Inc. (PMI) which has its exploration focus in Albania and has farmed out 75% to Shell Oil. In addition, we have the right to receive up to 38MM performance shares in PMI, in the event of discovery of future reserves.

Work program details and current status are available on PMI`s webpage and recent press release about test results of the first well (www.petromanas.com).

Financing Manas is presently actively engaged in discussions with certain investors and potential partners for funding its future operations.

On August 8, 2013, DWM signed a Loan Agreement in an amount of EURO 4,000,000 (USD 5,322,920), with Tulip Fund NV, an investment fund incorporated under the laws of the Netherlands. This bridge financing did not close and DWM is investigating other sources of financing. In the interim the board decided to sell 50 MM PMI shares in order to avoid jeopardizing the Tajik projects. We intend to use the proceeds as working capital as well as minimum capex in Tajikistan until partner agreements are signed.

About Manas Petroleum Corp.

Through its 7.2 % equity interest in Petromanas Energy Inc., a Canadian public company, Manas participates in exploration projects in Albania, France and Australia.
