D2 Technologies (www.d2tech.com) has rolled in support for multi-party video conferencing into the mCUE communications client and ported it over to the Apple iOS family (iPhone, iPad). In addition, mCUE will be fully VoLTE compliant by Q4 2011.
COO Doug Makishima said operators are looking for a “good enough” applications solution to put on Android and iOS devices to complement mCUE clients embedded into set top boxes and other devices.
VoLTE support will be based on the final standard when it is published.
MCUE now supports multi-party video conferencing on both an ad-hoc and server-based basis through a platform-optimized embedded media engine.
With the upgrade, mCUE now supports a much broader range of processors, including Qualcomm, NVIDIA, Freescale Semiconductor, Marvell, and TI. Nearly all of the new support extends to ARM, but there are a couple of manufacturers starting to use MIPS as well.
Other new features include; RCS functionality, including video calling capabilities and enhanced Network Address Book integration (NAB); 4G VoIP calling (pre-VoLTE and SIP-based VoIP over WiMAX); and updated IMS, including XCAP implementation, MSRP support and SMS and deferred SMS over IP.
