Improving Voice over LTE (VoLTE) and rich communications (RCS) video calling, D2 Technologies has introduced mCUE 4G, a converged 4G mobile communications client.
Visitors this week to the 2012 International CES, being held Jan.10-13 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, can get a first look at mCUE 4G thanks to VoIP and IP video calling demonstrations over a leading American LTE network. mCUE's capabilities will also be demonstrated on multiple mobile devices using various application processors and LTE modems.
“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.”
To help carriers and device manufacturers deliver today's most in-demand IMS communications features for smartphones, tablets, media phones and other mobile devices, mCUE 4G is tightly integrated and optimized for the Android OS platform. Carriers and OEMs/ODMs can confidently commercialize VoLTE- and RCS-capable devices to bring advanced rich IP communications to 4G networks with mCUE's carrier-grade voice and video quality and field-proven interoperability.
Recently, the company partnered with Sequans Communications to help the companies to meet the increasing demand for turnkey LTE solutions. The companies also announced that they have been able to mark significant milestones in the commercialization of LTE. Sequans launched three new LTE baseband chips and a companion RF chip supporting all global FDD and TDD LTE networks. On the other hand, D2 announced that its mCUE and its underlying vPort embedded IMS VoIP software platform successfully completed the VoLTE Interoperability Testing Event.
