D2 Technologies and NewPace Technology Development Inc. Successfully Complete RCS Interoperability Testing

D2 pairs its mCUE® 4G client software with the NewPace rcsConnect Platform, enabling mobile operators to rapidly commercialize RCS

D2 Technologies, the market leader in embedded IP communications software platforms and NewPace Technology Development Inc., a leading provider of rich communication service products for mobile network operators, today announced the successful completion of interoperability testing for comprehensive rich communication services (RCS). D2's mCUE 4G IMS software client and NewPace's rcsConnect platform give mobile network operators complete RCS functionality as they transition legacy voice services to LTE and begin to offer rich communication services via IMS.

"We are excited to partner with D2 Technologies research and development team to develop the next generation of RCS, while continuing to demonstrate to the market the interoperability of NewPace's technology," said Brent Newsome, president and CEO of NewPace. "We are witnessing RCS interest continuing to grow from both telecoms and consumers - each looking for streamlined messaging systems that can provide them with a platform for much more."

NewPace's innovative rcsConnect family of solutions has been powering global rich communication solutions for more than three years. rcsConnect is a complete suite of RCS 5.1 compliant services including: Presence, Instant Messaging, Group Chat, File Transfer, VoIP (IR.92) and Video calling (IR.94), Inter-operator routing (IR.90) and Network API solutions for mobile operators. The solution can be deployed inside a mobile operator's network as an IMS Application Server, as a stand-alone application for those who have not yet deployed IMS functionality, or as a hosted solution integrated with the operators network.

D2's mCUE 4G is the most advanced IMS IP communications software solution for the Android OS platform, supporting the IR.92 VoLTE, IR.94 video call and RCS (5.1 and joyn) GSMA standards to deliver IP communications features like HD voice, real time video call, instant message, presence, SMS and VCC on 3G, 4G LTE and Wi-Fi networks. As the first IP communications client deployed by a 4G mobile operator, it is field proven and delivers carrier-grade voice and video quality, and demonstrated interoperability. mCUE 4G is a complete communications client, providing all key layers from the UI and protocol stacks, a fully embedded media engine that includes a complete VoIP DSP module with wideband CODECs, and optimized video framework integration that supports native hardware video acceleration. It is available in both embedded (native) and downloadable App versions, and is GSMA joyn Accredited.

"NewPace has become an industry leader based on its deep understanding of the benefits of rich communication as a platform that can enhance the end user experience and help operators remain competitive in the marketplace," said Doug Makishima, chief operating officer for D2 Technologies. "We look forward to leveraging the company's innovative technology to help bring RCS to the next level."
