D2 Technologies’ vPort 4G+ Software to Provide VoLTE for NVIDIA LTE Modems

Reference design to include D2’s mCUE® 4G IMS client software for RCS

Santa Barbara, CA – February 25, 2013 — D2 Technologies, the market leader in embedded IP communications software platforms, today announced its IR.92 VoLTE software will be used to enable carrier-grade Voice- and SMS-over-LTE capability on the NVIDIA Icera family of LTE multimedia data modem chipsets for mobile devices.  

The companies also plan to collaborate on a reference design for RCS, Wi-Fi calling and IR.94 video calls that uses vPort 4G+’s advanced API for IMS features in conjunction with D2’s mCUE 4G mobile client software running on NVIDIA’s mobile application processors.   

“Our collaboration with NVIDIA represents the next step in the commercialization of IMS-based communications in the mobile industry,” said Doug Makishima, chief operating officer for D2 Technologies. “The NVIDIA chipset for tablets and handheld devices has been tested and validated for operation on the AT&T® 4G LTE network.  We are pleased that an industry leader has selected our software platforms to quickly bring to market robust and optimized VoLTE and RCS enabled products.”    

The NVIDIA® i500 LTE modem delivers lightning-fast web browsing, video streaming and multiplayer gaming to tablets and clamshell devices. It is the second NVIDIA modem to implement 4G LTE in NVIDIA's software defined radio baseband processor. Together with its multimode radio transceiver, the chipset offers 4G LTE at category 4 data rates (up to 150 Mbps) as well as 4G HSPA+, 3G and 2G compatibility. 

“NVIDIA is dedicated to delivering next-generation mobile communicationservices such as VoLTE and RCS to support operators as they transition legacy voice services to LTE and begin to offer rich communications services via IMS,”  said Steve Allpress, vice president of mobile communications software at NVIDIA.  “Integrating D2’s industry-leading IMS software allows us to accelerate delivery of next-generation communication solutions to mobile device OEMs.”
