IP communications. VoIP. Cloud calling. There are a lot of options for businesses wanting to ditch legacy systems and go with something that offers a little bit more for a lot less money. For operators, it means seeking out the best of the best to offer customers, and being that we’ve become so mobile-centric, mobile operators have a lot to stand up to. That’s why there’s VoLTE.
VoLTE offers significant advantages over the traditional voice infrastructure and OTT services. Being able to offer high-definition voice and seamless call handoff among various LTE (News - Alert) networks is just a small start. VoLTE has the capacity to allow users to use many multiple media applications involving voice, video and data simultaneously on their smart devices.
The technology from D2 Technologies (News - Alert) was recently featured at the LTE Asia Summit via its mCUE 4G embedded IMS client.
A government study conducted last year said that VoLTE offers clearer communications than what is being delivered by equipment currently used by first responders.
Infonetics (News - Alert) Research once forecasted that there would be 12 commercial VoLTE networks by the end of 2013, while Arc Chart predicts that the number of VoLTE users worldwide will stand at 74 million by 2016.
D2 Technologies’ mCUE 4G software implements rich-call and rich-messaging features natively in the mobile handset so that all users gain nothing but a positive experience.
“D2 is helping operators and device OEMs seamlessly integrate video, voice, rich messaging and media sharing natively into the device communications experience. As mobile operators extend their networks with 4G LTE and IP-based IMS services, consumers will be able to realize enhanced communications capabilities that are natively part of the device experience,” said Doug Makishima (News - Alert), chief operating officer for D2 Technologies in a statement.
mCUE’s key features include: VoIP and SMS/MMS over IP; call features, like hold, mute, merge, split, swap, audio sourcing, pause, and wait; and real-time video call and conference.
mCUE 4G was featured running on the Google (News - Alert) Nexus 5 by LG connecting to an IMS RCS server from NewNet Communications Technologies via an LTE femto cell from Node-H.
