D2 Technologies, the market leader in software platforms for IP communications, introduced the industry’s first embedded mobile convergence software to power the next generation of converged multi-mode mobile communications devices. D2′s mCUE(TM) pairs an innovative, patent pending communications user interface (CUI) with the company’s vPort MP VoIP software platform to address the needs of OEMs and service providers delivering integrated Fixed Mobile Convergence (FMC) and Unified Communications (UC) functionality. mCUE provides a complete embedded software framework for multi-mode mobile handsets for enterprise and consumer use, such as dual-mode cellular plus Wi-Fi phones, and is being unveiled for the first time in Suite 04-608 at The Signature, MGM Grand during the 2008 International CES in Las Vegas, January 7-11.
“mCUE revolutionizes mobile communications by tying together the best aspects of PC-based communications, such as VoIP, instant messaging and presence support, with the roaming benefits of mobile cellular and connection speed and quality of in-building wireless,” said Doug Makishima, vice president of marketing at D2 Technologies. “It is a complete turnkey solution for multi-mode mobile communication devices.”
D2′s mCUE software bridges the functionality of IP communications with the coverage of mobile networks to provide the best communication experience for mobile users. Because it is interoperable with enterprise IP-PBXs and UC systems as well as service provider networks, mCUE provides enterprise users with mobile access to full directory services, extension calling, corporate IM, and other features typically only available on IP desk phones or PC-based soft phones. Its revolutionary user interface, built on top of a multi-identity, multi-session, multi-protocol engine, enables users to simultaneously log into multiple different communications services such as SIP, Google Talk, Yahoo!, MSN, AIM, and others.
mCUE is specifically designed for mobile embedded devices, making it an ideal platform for smartphones and mid-range “feature phone” class devices. Its user interface offers the latest advances in unified communications including presence-centric and push-to-X control over all types of sessions including voice, IM, SMS, and e-mail messaging. It includes an innovative presence-based converged contact list for all services and tools for managing multiple accounts, services and networks.
mCUE utilizes D2′s Internet Service Interface (ISI) layer, a unique interface enabling multiple IM, VoIP and e-mail services as well as concurrent sessions. It can be customized to meet specific OEM application requirements and can be rebranded by service providers looking for revenue enhancing customer opportunities. Furthermore, its complete Java-based user interface framework for Linux can be ported to other GUI platforms.
D2′s vPort MP VoIP software engine gives mCUE seamless FMC mobility through IMS-SIP and VCC functionality. vPort leads the market in embedded VoIP performance, efficiency and platform support, enabling networking, signaling and voice processing functions to execute as an integrated solution on a single processor, thereby driving down costs.
D2 Technologies’ extensive experience in embedded VoIP solutions, IP communications, Java device platforms, and mobile user experience enables the company to provide core communications solutions for Android, Linux communications platforms, and other OS platforms used in mobile devices. In addition to Linux, vPort has been ported to a number of other OSs and RTOSs, and will be available on Windows® Mobile in the near future.
