As Mobile Unified Communications (News
) continue to evolve, the growth of convergence software solutions is helping address the needs of OEMs.
Companies such as D2 Technologies (News
) are leading the charge with solutions geared toward providing OEMs and ODMs an economical way to quickly develop today's most advanced enterprise-class wireless access points and residential gateways delivering triple- and quadruple-play voice/video/data/wireless functionality with the lowest possible power consumption.
D2’s mCUE mobile convergence software solution combines a patent- pending communications user interface with the company’s vPort MP VoIP software platform to address the needs of OEMs and service providers delivering integrated Fixed Mobile Convergence (News
) (FMC) and Unified Communications (UC) functionality.
Charlie Ashton, director of Enablement at Applied Micro Circuits (News
) Corporation (AMCC) -- an industry player in the PowerPC processor market, said his company employs D2’s vPort GW software on the PowerPC 405EX processor as a way to minimize risk and accelerate customers’ time-to-market for their products.
“By making D2 Technologies' vPort VoIP solution's optimized support for voice performance and advanced telephony and voice signaling features available on the PowerPC 405EX Kilauea evaluation platform, we make it easier for OEMs and ODMs to develop best-in-class wired and wireless networking products and bring them to production in the shortest time possible,” said Ashton.
In Fact, D2’s mCUE is designed to help handset OEMs/ODMs, converged (FMC) service providers and Unified Communications (UC)/IPPBX system vendors take advantage of the important trends now unfolding in mobile Unified Communications and Fixed Mobile Convergence.
mCUE builds upon D2’s existing vPort MP product by using its IP communications engine and service abstraction functions to create a rich, universal mobile IP (and circuit-switched) communications client user experience. mCUE’s strength as a combination of a high performance, high quality communications engine and a feature-rich UI for communications puts it in a unique position of being able to provide solutions for the future’s most critical UC deployment scenarios.
"The combination of our products results in a highly-scalable and cost-effective solution for OEMs and ODMs that eliminates bandwidth-intensive processing issues and facilitates the production of elegantly simple designs for next generation WLAN applications," said Doug Makishima, vice president of Marketing and Sales at D2 Technologies.
