Ever growing adoption of advanced 4G networks throughout the globe has been encouraging development of enhanced devices and solutions which allow telecommunications providers to offer advanced 4G services to their customers.
D2 Technologies, a provider of Voice over Internet Protocol and converged IP communications software for devices used in 4G and next-generation networks that deliver advanced communication services, has launched its mCUE 4G, a converged 4G mobile communications client for Voice over LTE and Rich Communications video calling.
Software solutions offered by the company allow manufacturers and service providers to offer carrier-grade IP communications across a number of networks such as Long Term Evolution, WiMAX, cellular, WiFi, broadband and PSTN. Additionally, these solutions support a range of services such as voice, video, IM chat and SMS and various systems including carrier, IPPBX, UC, OTT and social network for a variety of fixed and mobile devices.
The new mCUE 4G offers seamless integration for the rapidly growing Android OS platform, so that carriers and device manufacturers can conveniently offer advanced IMS communications features for smartphones, tablets, media phones and other mobile devices. Additionally, the new converged 4G mobile communications client by D2 Technologies features enhanced voice and video quality and field-proven interoperability, which will allow carriers and Original Equipment Manufacturers and Original Design Manufacturers to monetize the VoLTE and RCS capable devices by enabling advanced rich IP communications to 4G networks.
A 4G mobile operator has recently achieved the first field deployment of the new mCUE 4G, which has also been successfully implemented at the VoLTE Interoperability Testing Event of MultiService Forum held at Beijing, China and Dusseldorf, Germany.
At the 2012 International CES taking place at the Las Vegas Convention Center during January 10-13, 2012, a demonstration of the VoIP and IP video calling features of the mCUE 4G over a leading American LTE network will be offered within a preview suite at the Las Vegas Hotel & Casino. Further, a number of mobile devices using various application processors and LTE modems will be used to showcase the capabilities of mCUE as well.
“Traditional carriers are struggling to maintain a close relationship with customers, particularly since increased data usage has been paired with a reduction in talk minutes due to competition from OTT communication services,” said Doug Makishima, chief operating officer for D2 Technologies. “We believe 4G technology enables carriers to counterbalance this challenge through competitive, innovative communications offerings. With mCUE 4G, they can quickly get new mobile devices to market that offer customers advanced rich communications capabilities based on the VoLTE and RCS/RCS-e standards.”
In November 2011, D2 Technologies and Sequans Communications, a leading 4G chipmaker, announced that they have decided to extend their partnership. The officials from both the companies said the move will help the companies to meet the increasing demand for turnkey LTE solutions.
