Across the European Union, access to mobile broadband is improving citizens’ lives and business productivity by providing access to information and services in real time with nearly ubiquitous coverage. The next wave of mobility will be in services connecting us intelligently to the communities and cities we live in, and will be a key enabler for growth and innovation in all industry sectors.
This event will explore examples of innovation in connected cities and communities within and beyond the EU, and will ask how smart public policy can maximise the potential of mobile networks, technologies and services to further contribute to their development.
Visit us on the GSMA Showcase to join in first-hand on the IP Communications experience.
D2 Technologies and NewNet have teamed-up to demonstrate a truly native IP-based communication experience providing VoLTE calls, video-based calling and Rich Communication Services (RCS) via D2 Tech’s embedded IMS client integrated in the handset device. Using a live LTE network accessed using Node-H’s Femtocell technology with NewNet’s IMS/RCS server and Google Nexus 5 devices from LG, the device’s native phone dialer has both voice call and video call buttons. The in-call screen shows several RCS sharing functions – clearly demonstrating the ‘Green Button Promise’ in action! The communication speed between devices over the network is impressively fast and the user experience emphasises the simplicity of adding in-call options. These include sharing location, sharing video, video call (upgrading an IR 92 VoLTE voice call to an IR 94 Video Call), sending a picture and starting chat.
