Looking to provide an uninterrupted handover of voice calls from an LTE network to a circuit-switched WCDMA 3G network, NVIDIA (News - Alert) has joined hands with D2 Technologies.
It is common for customers to experience difficulties in communications when they are using different network types. This partnership looks to solve that problem by combining D2's mCUE 4G, a converged 4G mobile communications client for VoLTE and rich communications (RCS) video calling with NVIDIA's state-of-the-art Icera (News - Alert) 410 LTE modem, the company stated in a press release.
“Although the industry is making great strides toward the global adoption of 4G LTE (News - Alert), it will be some time before 4G coverage surpasses current 2G/3G coverage,” noted Doug Makishima, chief operating officer for D2 Technologies. “Our joint VoLTE SRVCC solution with NVIDIA enables 4G mobile devices to provide seamless voice service across 4G LTE and 3G/2G legacy networks -- giving operators time to build out LTE networks while continuing to leverage their existing networks.”
With the help of D2's mCUE 4G, carriers and device manufacturers can provide advanced features for various kinds of communication devices such as tablets, smartphones and so on. Also, they can bring advanced rich IP communications to 4G networks by commercializing VoLTE- and RCS-capable devices.
With the help of VoLTE SRVCC, operators can use the LTE networks to provide next-generation voice solutions. mCUE 4G also supports both the IR.92 VoLTE and RCS/RCS-e GSMA (News - Alert) standards, the company stated.
In other news, NVIDIA and ZTE (News - Alert), a provider of telecommunications equipment and network solutions, recently unveiled the ZTE Mimosa X, a smartphone powered both by the NVIDIA Tegra application processor and its Icera modem.
The ZTE Mimosa X will deliver super multimedia capabilities, including advanced audio distribution profile (A2DP), Dolby sound, digital living network alliance (DLNA) compatibility for easy sharing of content, HD video record and play, dual microphones, and built-in gyroscope, NVIDIA said.
