The software for testing the voice templates, and the templates are stored on
a computer and the user must gain access to the computer to begin the verification
FreeKey®/Voice Protect® technology
eliminates the database management, and its related costs. The software and the
templates are part of the microprocessor residing in the device itself. The cell
phone can perform the authentication process without the call to the database!
The actual hand set can verify the user and give access without any outside intervention.
