D2 Technologies Updates mCUE(R) 4G to Optimize Delivery of IMS-Based VoLTE and RCS Services

(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) BARCELONA, SPAIN and SANTA BARBARA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/25/13 -- Mobile World Congress2013 -- D2 Technologies, the market leader in embedded IP communications software platforms, today introduced a downloadable version of its mCUE 4G IMS software client for VoLTE and RCS/joyn at Mobile World Congress 2013 in Barcelona, Spain. D2 is also announcing the commercialization of vPort 4G+, the VoLTE engine module of mCUE 4G, for integration directly in LTE modem ICs. These two new offerings provide operators, OEMs and IC vendors with more options to speed deployment and optimize performance of RCS and VoLTE services.


The downloadable mCUE 4G client allows operators to easily and efficiently launch IMS services to their installed base of subscribers. It includes many of the key features of the original native/embedded version, such as real-time IP voice and video communications, SMS over IP and RCS-e/joyn capabilities. It enables operators to offer legacy voice and SMS services over WiFi or 3G/4G mobile data connections and add rich IP communications services such as IM, file/media share, video call/share and capabilities exchange.

In addition, D2 has commercialized the vPort 4G+ IMS stack and VoLTE engine of mCUE 4G as a separate software module for integration directly into LTE modem ICs to provide superior voice quality, battery life and system performance. The module also offers an advanced API for RCS services that allows third party RCS applications to leverage the modem-resident IMS stack and registration, avoiding complex and redundant integration issues. vPort 4G+ is being integrated and commercialized by two top tier IC vendors, with more to follow.

"D2's mCUE powers the communication functions of YTL's Eclipse, the world's first 4G all IP communications Android smartphone and a precursor to a full voice over LTE (VoLTE) and rich communications (RCS) native experience," said Doug Makishima, chief operating officer for D2 Technologies. "D2 continues to provide important enhancements to its products to enable mobile operators and device OEMs to offer advanced rich communications capabilities based on the VoLTE and RCS/RCS-e standards." Visitors to Mobile World Congress, being held now through February 28 at the Fira Gran Via in Barcelona, Spain, can request a private demo of mCUE 4G running on an Intel-based Motorola RAZR™ i Android™ phone connecting to an IMS RCS server from NewPace Technology by contacting D2 Technologies at marketing@d2tech.com.
