  • Patent number: 7869821
    Abstract: SIP type signal protocol for a mobile communication network (N), comprising an invitation signal message (MI) “INVITE”, intended to set-up a “Push to Talk” type communication session between a calling communication client (A) and one or several called communication clients (B, C), and containing the logical address of the calling communication client and an address of the called communication client(s). The signal protocol is innovative in that the invitation signal message (MI) also contains a visiting card associated with a user of the calling communication client (A).

  • Patent number: 7578200
    Abstract: A method for measuring the rigidity of paper or other products made from cellulose fibers wherein the paper is torn and a digitized sound recording is made during the tearing process which is then analyzed to determine the percentage of time during which characteristic frequencies are present during the tearing process. It has been found that this percentage correlates well with rigidity.
