D2 Technologies (News - Alert), a provider of embedded IP communications software platforms, continues to provide important enhancements to its products to enable mobile operators and device OEMs to offer advanced rich communications capabilities based on the VoLTE and RCS/RCS-e standards.
The company confirmed its plan to announce the availability of downloadable version of its mCUE 4G IMS software client for VoLTE and RCS/joyn at Mobile World Congress 2013.
mCUE 4G is the most advanced IMS IP communications software solution for the Android (News - Alert) OS platform, supporting both the IR.92 VoLTE and RCS/RCS-e GSMA standards to deliver IP communications features like HD voice, real time video call, instant message, presence, SMS and VCC on 4G and Wi-Fi networks.
“D2’s mCUE powers the communication functions of YTL’s Eclipse, the world’s first 4G all IP communications Android smartphone and a precursor to a full voice over LTE (News - Alert) (VoLTE) and rich communications (RCS) native experience,” Doug Makishima, chief operating officer for D2 Technologies, said in a statement.
At MWC, D2 is also announcing the commercialization of vPort 4G+, the VoLTE engine module of mCUE 4G, for integration directly in LTE modem ICs. These two new offerings are expected to provide operators, OEMs and IC vendors with more options to speed deployment and optimize performance of RCS and VoLTE services.
The downloadable mCUE 4G client allows operators to easily and efficiently launch IMS services to their installed base of subscribers. It includes many of the key features of the original native/embedded version, such as real-time IP voice and video communications, SMS over IP and RCS-e/joyn capabilities. It enables operators to offer legacy voice and SMS services over WiFi (News - Alert) or 3G/4G mobile data connections and add rich IP communications services such as IM, file/media share, video call/share and capabilities exchange.
In addition, D2 has commercialized the vPort 4G+ IMS stack and VoLTE engine of mCUE 4G as a separate software module for integration directly into LTE modem ICs to provide superior voice quality, battery life and system performance.
In another release, the company noted that its mCUE 4G IMS software client for VoLTE and RCS, paired with BroadSoft's (News - Alert) BroadWorks Telephony Application Server (TAS), gives service providers complete VoLTE functionality to better commercialize advanced 4G LTE networks and enable VoIP over Wi-Fi services.
