Technology is making it possible for everyone who has access to it to start a business without a storefront and provide services without owning a room full of servers. This access also makes it possible for large enterprises to lose money to unlicensed service providers who don’t follow the rules as it is written. Being compliant ensures standards are followed and the quality of the service is noticeably better. The new version of the VVoIP software development kit (SDK) Engine Mobile 4.0 from SPIRIT DSP can bring voice and video over IP to Rich Communication Suite (News - Alert) (RCS) and give Telcos a tool against over the top (OTT) service providers.
The Engine Mobile 4.0 is able to provide interactive mobile HD voice and video calls in RCS while being compliant with RCS 5.1 specifications. This specification gives telcos and developers the ability to quickly bring IMS voice and video calling functionality to services that are compliant with RCS. The engine is also compatible with voice over LTE (News - Alert) (VoLTE), IMS and SIP and specifications.
By being able to bring richer RCS calls to the consumer, boosting the value of LTE networks and keeping the subscribers connected makes it possible to stay competitive with OTT. Creating rich HD voice and video applications and introducing them to the marketplace with speed, performance and reliability is one way of ensuring customer retention.
The Mobile 4.0 SDK is easy to use and create rich HD voice and video applications for quality voice and video calling on LTE networks. Some of the customers developing RCS for creating applications, services and products are BroadSoft, Huawei, KT (News - Alert), LG and U+.
As the No. 1 VVoIP engines provider, SPIRIT DSP provides services for more than one billion users in more than 100 countries around the world. By using the RCS 5.1 specification approved by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU), it gives telecom operators the tools they need to compete with smaller and more flexible OTT service providers. The standards ensure the consumer will always have high quality and feature rich standard-based mobile applications available across many different networks and brand devices.
"It is not only cross-platform messaging services that are killing telcos SMS traffic. Without HD voice and video over IP as a part of carriers’ RCS offering, irreparable loss of voice revenues is the challenge telcos have to deal with right now. TeamSpirit Voice&Video Engine Mobile has been recognized by carriers around the world as an effective way to remain more competitive with OTT, bring richer RCS calls to their subscribers, enhance the value of LTE networks and keep their subscribers connected," said SPIRIT's Chairman Andrew Sviridenko.
