CES 2014: Altair Semiconductor Partners with Ecrio for Commercial VoLTE Solution

Chipset with Embedded FlexIMS™ Software to Support Rapid Expansion of VoLTE Globally

LAS VEGAS, January 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Altair Semiconductor, the world's leading developer of high-performance, single-mode LTE chipsets, and Ecrio, the leading provider of 4G LTE real time communications client software for the mobile industry, today announced a partnership to provide an integrated solution bringing together Altair's LTE chipset and Ecrio's FlexIMS™ based Voice over LTE (VoLTE) software.  The new product enables high definition voice communications to run over LTE networks in a low power and cost optimized architecture.

"Altair and Ecrio have a solid partnership, offering pre-integrated IMS/LTE functionality in portable and mobile platforms," said Michel Gannage, Founder and CEO of Ecrio. "We have now extended our cooperation to cover the VoLTE space, which we believe will be a strong catalyst for the enablement of VoLTE and advanced service-capable devices."

VoLTE enables carriers to migrate voice traffic from older 3G technologies to LTE, offering spectrally efficient and higher quality calls. Once completed, this migration will enable carriers to repurpose their existing spectrum to LTE and use a pure IP network to provide users advanced services such as video calling and other Rich Communication Services (RCS).

The FlexIMS™ architecture allows for the distribution of IMS services functions between the Modem and Application Processors, making the implementations future-proof. RCS or Video Calling functions can now be incrementally integrated on the Application Processor to add to IMS, SMS and VoLTE functionality implemented in the Modem Processor.  

"With the rapid deployment of LTE networks in key markets and the growing number of advanced smartphones, VoLTE is quickly becoming a commercial reality" said Eran Eshed, Co-Founder and VP of Marketing and Business Development at Altair. "We are pleased to extend our partnership with Ecrio into this growing market to offer the most robust and mature VoLTE solution available."

Altair and Ecrio are both participating in The International CES Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada.  Altair representatives are available at meeting suite #306 on the 24th floor in The Venetian.
