SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Naratte Inc., a Silicon Valley-based start-up, has announced that it can provide the benefits of near field communication (NFC) with ultrasonic technology by using the speaker and microphone already found on mobile devices. This new technology, called Zoosh™, is highly engineered software that communicates in frequencies that are inaudible to humans, but are used in nature by frogs, dolphins and other animals. With one software update, an App can now become Zoosh-powered to securely transfer data between millions of devices already being used by consumers.

"In order to deliver a secure and reliable data transaction using existing audio subsystems, we had to overcome some incredibly difficult engineering hurdles,” says Naratte Co-Founder and CEO, Brett Paulson. “We have accomplished what some said was not possible, and the markettiming could not be any better.”

Naratte’s Zoosh technology is engineered to be low cost, fast, secure, and reliable. It can be instantly deployed to millions of mobile devices, including iPhones, Android phones, tablets and even feature phones. It requires no network connection and avoids interoperability issues. Zoosh is architected to be safe for mobile payments using techniques such as unique and perishable transaction ID.
