D2 Technologies COO Joins CES Discussion on Evolution of Mobile Communications Services

(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) SANTA BARBARA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/04/13 -- D2 Technologies, the market leader in embedded IP communications software platforms, today announced that chief operating officer Doug Makishima will join other key industry leaders to discuss how smarter devices and ubiquitous high-speed mobile data access via 4G and WiFi fuel the evolution of richer IP-based communication services such as HD voice, instant messaging, video calling and content sharing.

Mobile operators are now successfully deploying Voice over LTE (VoLTE) and rich communications suite (RCS) services that provide advanced communications capabilities popularized by Over-The-Top (OTT) offerings such as Skype, WhatsApp, FaceTime and enterprise Unified Communications (UC) solutions, but with carrier quality, reliability and reach. Mobile subscribers now have more options than ever before as their appetite grows for advanced communication modes beyond traditional voice and SMS.

"As mobile operators migrate legacy voice and SMS services to LTE networks using IMS, there's an opportunity to simultaneously provide rich communications via RCS," noted Makishima. "D2's mCUE 4G IMS client software provides mobile device OEMs and IC vendors with optimized and interoperable VoLTE and RCS capabilities." Doug Mohney, editor-in-chief of HD Voice News, will moderate the panel, "Richer Mobile Communications through Broadband: Learn why the Apple iPhone 5 supports HD voice, MetroPCS favors 'rich' communications services (RCS) over HD voice, and what RCS apps are available through joyn and OTT. Enabled by faster HSPA+ and LTE networks, the mobile industry is moving to HD voice and a new wave of interactive RCS." Alan Percy, senior director of strategic marketing, NA, AudioCodes and Jeffrey Rodman, co-founder and chief evangelist, Polycom, will join Makishima. CES 2013 will be held January 7-10 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The panel discussion will occur Monday, January 7 at 5:00pm.
