D2 to stage live demonstrations in the GSMA Pavilion of native and downloadable IMS software clients for VoLTE, IR.94 and RCS / joyn services
Shanghai (Mobile Asia Expo 2013) and Santa Barbara, CA – June 25, 2013 — D2 Technologies, the market leader in embedded IP communications software platforms, is showcasing its recently updated mCUE® 4G IMS software client for VoLTE and RCS/joyn at Mobile Asia Expo 2013 in Shanghai. Beginning today through June 28, exhibition visitors can get a first-hand look at how this tightly integrated and optimized Android™ OS product enables mobile operators and device OEMs to offer advanced rich communications capabilities based on the VoLTE, IR.94 video call and RCS/RCS-e standards.
In the GSMA Pavilion (Hall N2) of the Shanghai New International Expo Centre, conference attendees can see a demonstration of the embedded version of mCUE 4G powering an Android phone featuring the Intel® Atom™ processor; the downloadable app version will be shown on a Samsung Galaxy Nexus™.
“VoLTE/RCS-joyn implementations continue to gain operator momentum in key countries, including the most recent launch of joyn by Orange™ in France,” noted Doug Makishima, chief operating officer for D2 Technologies. “This rapid adoption is encouraging, and we expect to see close to a dozen more launches in the next six months.”
