After unveiling the industry’s first embedded mobile convergence software solution for dual-mode phones earlier this year, D2 Technologies (News
) continues to push forward with other innovative phone solutions.
A market leader in software platforms for IP communications, D2’s mCUETM is an embedded mobile convergence software to power the next generation of converged multi-mode mobile communications devices.
The platform pairs an innovative, patent pending communications user interface (CUI) 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.
mCUE provides a software framework for multi-mode mobile handsets for enterprise and consumer use, such as dual-mode cellular plus Wi-Fi phones.
“mCUE revolutionizes mobile communications by tying together the best aspects of PC-based communications, such as VoIP, instant messaging and presence support, with the roaming benefits of mobile cellular and connection speed and quality of in-building wireless,” said Doug Makishima, vice president of marketing at D2 Technologies.
D2’s mCUE software bridges the functionality of IP communications with the coverage of mobile networks to provide the best communication experience for mobile users.
Because it is interoperable with enterprise IP-PBXs and UC systems as well as service provider networks, mCUE provides enterprise users with mobile access to full directory services, extension calling, corporate IM, and other features typically only available on IP desk phones or PC-based soft phones, according to Makishima.
“It is a complete turnkey solution for multi-mode mobile communication devices,” said Makishima.
Its user interface, built on top of a multi-identity, multi-session, multi-protocol engine, enables users to simultaneously log into multiple different communications services such as SIP, Google (News
) Talk, Yahoo!, MSN, AIM, and others.
mCUE is specifically designed for mobile embedded devices, making it an ideal platform for smartphones and mid-range “feature phone” class devices. Its user interface offers the latest advances in unified communications including presence-centric and push-to-X control over all types of sessions including voice, IM, SMS, and e-mail messaging. It includes an innovative presence-based converged contact list for all services and tools for managing multiple accounts, services and networks.
D2 also released its mCUE converged communications client for mobile devices to support Google’s Android (News
), one of the industry’s first open-source mobile platforms, that now enables OEMs to rapidly develop handsets powered by Android that offer a premium, graphic- and media-rich user experience.
