Powering IP-Based Communications on 4G/LTE Devices

CUPERTINO, Calif., June 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Ecrio extends its position as the leading supplier of client software for 4G/LTE devices with the availability of the cross-platform FlexIMS™ Architecture powering IP-based Real Time Communication Services compliant with the 3GPP IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS).

Targeted for mobile operators, device and chipset platform providers, this unique architecture enables VoLTE, Video Calling and companion Rich Communication Suite (RCS) services to be implemented with the flexibility to distribute functionalities across the LTE Baseband Processor and the Application Processor to meet low power consumption and latency requirements.

"The FlexIMS Architecture simultaneously addresses the challenges of Scalability, Modularity and Carrier Grade Quality demanded by our customers in the deployment of 4G/LTE IP communication services", said Michel Gannage, founder and CEO of Ecrio.

FlexIMS is the result of Ecrio's breakthrough efforts to evolve the legacy of closed Circuit Switched voice calling device architecture to an open distributed Packet Switched architecture for Voice and Video Calling with the following key attributes:

Scalable – On-Device Support for multiple simultaneous IMS services, with single registration with the network and associated signaling and media routing flexibility.

Modular – Pick and build SMS, Voice, Video and RCS/RCS-e functions facilitated by the modular design and implementation of the standards-compliant components and protocol stacks.

Advanced – Leverage Multi-Core Chipset Architectures for optimal latency and power consumption. Compact, low memory foot print media stacks, sophisticated dynamic jitter buffer, multimedia synchronization and pluggable codecs at run time. Utilizes standard compliant UICC based Security as well as supports Generic Authentication Architecture procedures such as GBA.

Robust – Ecrio Mobile Communications Client Suite (MCCS) built on the FlexIMS Architecture has been commercially deployed and runs on Real Time Operating Systems for Baseband Processors, as well as on General Purpose Operating Systems inclusive of Android, Windows, and Linux.

Tested – MCCS is tested with network infrastructure elements (IOT) at leading industry events and at mobile operator labs, applying stringent mandatory test cases for normal and abnormal network conditions
