The Problem

Subscribers need to dash around their homes trying to find their ringing mobile handsets and pay for
incoming airtime. Often they have to put up with possible poor reception.
Our Solution

Broadphone’s Location Based Network (LBN) enables calls to a mobile phone to ring simultaneously
and distinctively on all co-located land phones. Subscribers can register as many locations as they
like: home, office, weekend home, parents, etc. They simply walk into and out of pre-registered
locations for the service to be automatically activated or de-activated. No hardware, router or new
phone is needed and the service works whether the fixed line is copper or IP.  Broadphone’s
“Fingerprint” geo-location software can be installed on any mobile phone including inexpensive
models. Fingerprint is superior to GPS in accuracy and its simplicity allows it to consume less power.

When our Location Based Network (LBN) is combined with our Central Address Director (CAD), a one
phone number option (similar to GrandCentral.com) is possible for all land and cell phones.
Subscribers can also further customize their LBN, based on pre-determined times, locations and caller
identities. This will refine simultaneous ringing even if they are in their pre-registered spaces or
conversely have calls to their landline ring only on their mobile when they are not at their landline
location

LBN can be offered in conjunction with WiFi/Cell or instead of it.

*        Call forwarding solutions unfortunately ring on landlines even when the subscriber is not there. Fast Forward from AT&T (Cingular) requires a
        cradle at each location
