  • Summary:
    A Korean IT company developed a new type of messenger and VoIP application which assures a safe transmission of data. All communications are encrypted and secure as there is no separate exchange server for messages and calls. The application connects the users’ smartphone directly to each other through the P2P (peer-to-peer) technology without storing any information. They are looking for a local sales partner for the product under commercial agency agreement and distribution services agreement.
  • Description:
    The recent privacy scandal of the largest social media enterprise brought about fear among SNS users on the data protection of the service providers. User’s data are exposed to hackers and data mining firms which can steal valuable information.

    To avoid such mayhem, a Korean network expert company is proposing a new type of messenger and VoIP (voice-over internet protocol) application which assures a safe transaction of data for the users. The company’s application provides a light-weight secure communication module applicable to any type of communication environment (Wi-Fi, LTE, 3G, etc.). The application does not need any relay server for communication as it connects the user's smartphone directly to each other using the P2P (peer-to-peer) technology. The contents of the communication are transmitted by encrypting both the message and the Internet call, ensuring the confidentiality of the communication. With only one server (or virtual server), users can build a service environment that allows secure communication. The size of the service environment can be customized with the minimal server requirement.

    The application is a good fit for all ICT areas requiring communication including IoT (Internet of Things), network and camera. Communication between heterogeneous devices is supported through an IoT hub. Thus, devices from different manufacturers can communicate with each other by installing the app. Also, a highly secure communication channel is established between cameras and monitoring servers. Cameras can be directly accessed for management without going through a server.

    Furthermore, a mobile phone can be used without registering to a telephone company, and lifetime free voice and messaging
    are possible. The company’s VoIP solution consumes only half of data when compared to those by other web/mobile companies.

    The company would like to offer the product under commercial agency agreement and distribution services agreement. Preferred type of partners are companies in the IT and communication industry which can provide assistance in local sales.
