Provider of voice and video over IP engines, SPIRIT DSP has announced its TeamSpirit Voice&Video Engine Mobile supports the new version of the Rich Communication Suite-enhanced (RCS-e 5.0) specification.
A GSMA driven standard, the RCS-e is a framework for creating mobile IMS clients.
The new version includes the IMS-based definitions for mobile voice and video over Internet protocol (mVVoIP) calling and conferencing.
Company officials said RCS-e applications integrate with telecom operators’ IMS infrastructures to implement voice and video call functionality using IMS-compatible media streaming and session initiation protocol (SIP) signalling.
TeamSpirit Voice&Video Engine Mobile allows developers to bring high-quality IMS-compatible voice and video calling functionality to their RCS–e services, applications and devices.
The RCS-e specification is expected to allow telecom operators to compete with alternative Over-the-Top (OTT) mobile service providers. It’s also expected to help them retain and expand their subscriber base with feature-rich, standards-based mobile applications available across a wide set of handsets and mobile networks.
A digital signal and network processing SDK, the TeamSpirit Voice&Video Engine Mobile is designed for the development of mVVoIP applications. Company officials said their offering comes with modules for traditional IP network impairments compensation, such as echo, latency, jitter, congestion and packet loss – with various voice and video packet loss robustness and quality improvement algorithms to help maintain call quality in changing network channel conditions.
In addition to compatibility with standard SIP, IMS and VoLTE specifications, the engine has been tested in thousands of industry standard, benchmark and interoperability tests (BMT/IOT) conducted by the largest carriers and OTT service providers.
“The TeamSpirit Voice&Video Engine Mobile SDK provides simple, yet comprehensive mVVoIP-optimized calling APIs, along with compatibility with RCS-e, IMS and VoLTE specifications, allowing operators and smartphone developers to avoid unnecessary engineering efforts and rapidly bring to market embedded RCS-e applications with outstanding HD calling quality on a variety of mobile platforms, including Android and iOS,” said Alexander Samarin, director for product marketing at SPIRIT.
Earlier this year, SPIRIT's product VideoMost.com was named a recipient of TMC’s 2011 INTERNET TELEPHONY Product of the Year Award.
