GTT Group Announces Availability of Emergency Services Patent Portfolio

GTT Group Emergency Services Patent Portfolio Website SummaryGlobal Technology Transfer Group, Inc. (GTT Group), the premier provider of patent brokerage and patent transaction advisory services to information and communication technology companies worldwide, announces the availability of an emergency services patent portfolio.

The portfolio contains five issued U.S. patents and one U.S. application. The patents focus on initiating an emergency Internet Protocol (IP) request using an IP-enabled device having GPS capability. The inventions in this portfolio are critical to providing important emergency services features being offered today.

Key inventions relate to mobile devices and vehicle communication systems that send an IP emergency request with GPS location data when emergency criteria are met (e.g. a 9-1-1 call, collision, heat, or smoke). Other inventions in the portfolio relate to mobile networks that receive an emergency request including GPS data of an IP-enabled device and provide information to local emergency services.

“Obtaining reliable location information is one of the primary issues that needs to be addressed when transitioning to an IP-based emergency message,” said GTT Group Director of Asset Services, Andrew Godsey. “The inventions in this portfolio cover providing global positioning data in an emergency situation and are being deployed across a number of devices and networks.”

GTT Group has prepared materials to illustrate the value of the portfolio. To receive more information about this opportunity, please contact Andrew Godsey. All inquiries will be kept confidential.

GTT Group will approach potential buyers and provide materials explaining the strategic advantages of acquiring the portfolio. In addition, GTT Group’s experts will be available to discuss the strengths of the patents and evidence of use in the market. The portfolio will be sold at a private auction in November 2016.
