D2 Technologies and NewPace Technology Development Showcase Joint IMS Mobile Solution at IMS World Forum 2014
D2’s mCUE® 4G IMS client software paired with NewPace’s rcsConnect platform enable simultaneous rich communication services (RCS), VoLTE (IR.92) and ViLTE (IR.94)
Barcelona, Spain (IMS World Forum 2014), Santa Barbara, CA and Bedford, NS – April 29, 2014 — D2 Technologies, the market leader in embedded IP communications software platforms, and NewPace Technology Development Inc., a leading provider of rich communication service products for mobile network operators, today announced that they will showcase a “green button” native user experience that seamlessly combines comprehensive rich communication services (RCS), VoLTE (IR.92) and ViLTE (IR.94) during IMS World Forum 2014. The conference opens today at the Crown Plaza Barcelona Fira Center, Barcelona, Spain, and runs through May 1.
The two companies successfully completed interoperability testing of the joint solution, ensuring mobile network operators receive complete IMS functionality as they transition legacy voice services to LTE and begin to offer RCS, VoLTE and ViLTE (Video over LTE) via IMS.
“Our recent partnership with D2 Technologies is a significant milestone,” said Brent Newsome, president and CEO of NewPace. “D2 provides the software that is embedded by handset manufacturers to enable VoLTE, IMS and now RCS. With this technology easily at hand, it will ensure that RCS stacks can be provided as a standard option to global mobile network operators.”
NewPace’s innovative rcsConnect family of solutions has been powering RCS for more than three years. rcsConnect is a complete suite of RCS 5.1 compliant services including: presence, instant messaging, group chat, file transfer, VoIP (IR.92) and video calling (IR.94), inter-operator routing (IR.90) and network API solutions for mobile operators. The suite can be deployed inside a mobile operator’s network as an IMS Application Server, as a stand-alone application for those who have not yet deployed IMS functionality, or as a hosted solution integrated with the operator network.
D2’s mCUE 4G is the most advanced IMS IP communications software solution for the Android OS platform, supporting the IR.92 VoLTE, IR.94 video call and RCS (5.1 and joyn) GSMA standards to deliver IP communications features like HD voice, real time video call, instant message, presence, SMS and VCC on 3G, 4G LTE and Wi-Fi networks. As the first IP communications client deployed by a 4G mobile operator, it is field proven and delivers carrier-grade voice and video quality, and demonstrated interoperability. mCUE 4G is a complete communications client, providing all key layers from the UI and protocol stacks, a fully embedded media engine that includes a complete VoIP DSP module with wideband CODECs, and optimized video framework integration that supports native hardware video acceleration. It is available in both embedded (native) and downloadable App versions, and is GSMA joyn Accredited.
“VoLTE, ViLTE (IR.94) video calling and RCS is finally here,” said Doug Makishima, chief operating officer for D2 Technologies. “D2 and NewPace are helping operators to provide subscribers with the desired ‘green button’ integrated and seamless experience. Soon, subscribers will be able to video call, IM and send media and files just as easily as making a traditional voice call or sending a text message.”
Visitors to IMS World Forum 2014 can come to the exhibition area during exhibition hours to view a demo of mCUE 4G running on the Google Nexus 5 connecting to an IMS RCS server from NewPace Technology. mCUE 4G is also being demoed on the Huawei Ascend G716-L070, Nvidia’s Tegra 4i reference platform and an Intel® Atom™ based commercial handset.
Attendees can also hear more about state-of-the-art mobile network operating technologies in the presentation, “Is IMS Now Delivering The Future For Networks?” a panel presentation featuring D2 Technologies COO Doug Makishima, on Tuesday, April 29 at 11:55 a.m.
