SPIRIT DSP, the world's #1 voice and video over IP engines provider, serving more than 1 billion users in 100+ countries, today announced a new version of its VVoIP software SDK (Software Development Kit), TeamSpirit® Voice&Video Engine Mobile 4.0, that provides interactive mobile HD voice and video calls in RCS (Rich Communication Suite). TeamSpirit Voice&Video Engine Mobile 4.0 is compliant with the RCS 5.1 specification, the last version of the GSMA-driven standard for carriers' IP services, which allows telcos together with developers to quickly bring high-quality IMS voice and video calling functionality to their RCS-compliant services, applications and devices. The new engine is also fully compatible with standard SIP, IMS and VoLTE specifications.
TeamSpirit Voice&Video Engine, encompassing the new RCS communication standard, provides telcos with an easy-to-use SDK to create rich HD voice and video applications and bring them to market in record time, allowing them to remain more competitive and keep subscribers satisfied by responding more rapidly to their expectations for high quality voice and video calling on LTE networks. SPIRIT customers, such as BroadSoft, Huawei, KT, LG U+, Maaii and Reliance have developed or are now developing RCS applications and services using TeamSpirit Voice&Video Engines.
An approved by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) standard, the RCS 5.1 specification aims to provide fully interoperable and standards-based rich functionality to end users, such as IM, presence, sharing, as well as voice and video over IP calls. The specification allows telecom operators to effectively compete with innovative and agile OTT (Over-The-Top) service providers, retain and even expand their subscriber base with high-quality, feature-rich, standards-based mobile applications available across a wide set of handsets and mobile networks.
"It is not only cross-platform messaging services that are killing telcos SMS traffic. Without HD voice and video over IP as a part of carriers’ RCS offering, irreparable loss of voice revenues is the challenge telcos have to deal with right now”, said SPIRIT's Chairman Andrew Sviridenko. “TeamSpirit Voice&Video Engine Mobile has been recognized by carriers around the world as an effective way to remain more competitive with OTT, bring richer RCS calls to their subscribers, enhance the value of LTE networks and keep their subscribers connected."
SPIRIT will be demonstrating TeamSpirit Voice&Video Engine Mobile 4.0 integrated into SPIRIT partners’ RCS applications at Mobile World Congress 2013 in Barcelona, Feb. 25–28 at booth #6F87 in Hall 6.
