Just in time for the biggest Consumer Electronics event of the year, CES (News - Alert), D2 Technologies, market leader in embedded IP and mobile unified communications software platforms, made a significant announcement regarding the latest version of its mCUE mobile communications client.
D2’s mCUE 4G, a converged 4G mobile communications client for Voice over LTE (VoLTE) and rich communications (RCS) video calling is now available and on display this week in Las Vegas at CES . mCUE 4G is tightly integrated and optimized for the Android OS platform to help carriers and device manufacturers deliver IMS communications features for smartphones, tablets, media phones and other mobile devices, according to the company.
Last time TMCnet caught up with D2’s COO, Doug Makishima, he reiterated the company’s focus and predictions in the 4G and VoLTE market, so announcing the company’s latest version of its successful mCUE platform at CES was certainly the right move for the mobile unified communications provider.
Those present at CES can get a first look at mCUE 4G through VoIP and IP video calling demonstrations over a leading American LTE network in a preview suite at the Las Vegas Hotel & Casino. mCUE's capabilities will also be demonstrated on multiple mobile devices using various application processors and LTE modems.
mCUE 4G is an advanced IMS IP communications software solution for the Android OS platform, supporting both the IR.92 VoLTE and RCS/RCS-e GSMA standards to deliver IP communications features like HD voice, real time video call, instant message, presence, SMS and VCC/CSFB on 4G mobile networks. Most recently, mCUE 4G successfully completed its first field deployment by a 4G mobile operator as well as the MultiService Forum's VoLTE Interoperability Testing Event in Beijing, China and Dusseldorf, Germany.
"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 (News - Alert). "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."
