Yokohama, Japan -- November 14, 2012 -- Imagination Technologies, a leading multimedia and communications technologies company, announces the latestrelease of the HelloSoft’s Rich Communications Suite client, an integrated multimedia communication solution.
Imagination’s HelloSoft Rich Communication Suite (RCS) enables advanced features such as enriched voice and video calling with multimedia content sharing capabilities, enhanced address book/contacts, and messaging (SMS/MMS) over MSRP. It is compliant with GSMA RCS 5.0/5.1, IR.92 VoLTE standards and integrates all of features of the latest release of HelloSoft’s V.VoIP (Video and Voice over IP) SDK.
Other key capabilities include multi-homed session support (logging into multiple devices using the same profile) with synchronized presence and support for login to multiple devices simultaneously, seamless handoff and XDM and XCAP implementation per OMA (Open Mobile Alliance) and 3GPP standards. The Rich Communications Suite client enables video sharing during a circuit switched call while audio is still in CS (circuit switching) mode and supports live video or video play from a local file.
Says Tony King-Smith, VP marketing, Imagination: “The latest release of our HelloSoft V.VoIP mobile and embedded SDKs offer significant opportunities to enrich the customer experience, encouraging more flexible and frequent communication and helping to strengthen the mobile operator’s relationship with them. Maintaining the operator’s relevance as the primary provider of communication services will become even more important as competition shifts from the messaging market to the far more valuable voice market.
“Combining RCS and VoLTE services offers a complementary solution for consumers who want to share multimedia and files in real-time but the challenge is to combine these services efficiently to deliver a low-power, reduced latency solution which ensures superior quality for mobile users even in spotty wireless environments. HelloSoft’s Rich Communications Suite client implements innovative algorithms to provide a superior Video and Voice over IP quality, even at a packet loss rate of 30%.”
HelloSoft Rich Communications Suite Client is based upon the latest release of the HelloSoft V.VoIP mobile and embedded SDKs which provides: complete V.VoIP functionality; interfaces to basic and enterprise call features; a user interface that can be customized and easily enhanced; full standards compliance; and support for multiple platforms, extensively interoperated and field-deployed.
HelloSoft’s Rich Communication Suite is a comprehensive ready-to-deploy client solution available on a wide range of platforms and devices.
