Patent Win for weComm

Mobile data delivery company weComm has been granted a patent in the UK for techniques that it says will increase the quality of the mobile user experience. This brings the companys total number of global patents and patents-pending to over 35.
The patent is part of a wider family that overcomes a major cause of poor mobile end user experiences: the fundamental unsuitability of TCP/IP to deliver data across mobile networks, even though it is the most common communications technology in use today. 
Using applications built with weComms wave technology, mobile users can simultaneously and in parallel consume rich media content (including live broadcast TV), execute transactions (including stock trades), and interact with a real-time dynamic user interface, all within a single continuous session that adapts to variable mobile network conditions such as low signal coverage, switching between 3G/2.5G/2G channels and intermittent signal loss.
weComms patents are embodied in its IP-based Mobile Transport Protocol (MTP) that builds on the benefits of two IP protocols TCP (which is suitable for transaction-based systems such as fixed internet browsing) and UDP (which is suitable for real-time systems such as video streaming and games) to deliver a high-performance, reliable and continuous mobile user experience even amidst adverse and changing wireless network conditions.
Fixed networks are different to wireless and assume no variability in quality of connection and low error rates, so using fixed network communications protocols are always going to cause problems, says weComm COO Oliver Sturrock. To deliver a high quality user experience to a mobile consumer of media and entertainment, or to a stockbroker executing high-value trades, you need a reliable, high-performance fit-for-purpose technology.
Applications that make use of weComms wave  technology include BSkyBs Sky by mobile, Cantor Mobiles interactive financial and sports betting; eSpeeds Mobile Treasuries and Foreign Exchange and BSkyBs Mobile Sky Bet.
