Ecrio Demonstrates Nimbus, Cloud-based Solution for VoLTE, RCS


Ecrio demonstrated Nimbus, a cloud-based solution for voice over LTE (VoLTE) and rich communication suite (RCS), at last week’s Mobile World Congress held in Barcelona.

Nimbus basically can connect tablets and machine to machine (M2M) endpoints requiring voice and video services over global LTE networks. The solution provides features of embedded software User Agents (UA), as well, and connects to existing networks. In addition, virtualized UA works with standard WebRTC endpoints and enables them to interoperate with GSMA-compliant IR.92 VoLTE, IR.94 video and RCS in LTE-enabled phones. WebRTC is an open project that enables Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities through JavaScript APIs. The technology is being developed by the World Wide Web Consortium.

The company explained how Nimbus is based on Ecrio's FlexIMS architecture, which is used in millions of devices. Ecrio provides, too, a thin client with RCS capabilities to improve its functionality.

"Nimbus is a very important innovation in the mobile eco-system," Michel Gannage, CEO of Ecrio, said in a statement. "Using Nimbus, a variety of devices can now be connected seamlessly to Operators' VoLTE & RCS services without the complexity of embedded clients. One very important use case for Operators worldwide is that of bringing tablet based voice, video and messaging traffic to their networks as standards compliant VoLTE and RCS."

Overall, Ecrio supplies 4G/LTE real-time communications client software and services for the mobile sector. Ecrio's Mobile Communications Client Suite (MCCS) functions have been used on more than 50 million handsets. Ecrio's customers include NTT DOCOMO, SK Telecom and Verizon Wireless.

"The FlexIMS distributed architecture is the result of Ecrio's sustained track record and maturity, yielding the only solution for IP-based Voice and Video Calling that has the flexibility to distribute functionality across chipset elements and integrate with operating system of choice," Vikram Karmarkar, vice president of Business Development at Ecrio, added in a recent statement.
