Cupertino, USA – Ecrio, the leading provider of LTE real time communications client software, announced today the issuance of patent US 9,152,478 by the USPTO on October 6, 2015 covering the deployment of native Rich Communications Services (RCS) clients with a single IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) stack. Ecrio was granted intellectual property rights pertaining to the distribution of RCS functions across application and modem processors with a single IMS stack. RCS, defined by the GSM association, include IMS based core functions such as Voice & Video over LTE (VoLTE, ViLTE) and multimedia IP Messaging targeting a variety of end user services. To date, the VoLTE framework has been embedded in the Modem Processor, leaving other RCS functions to be implemented as separate applications running on the Application Processor with separate dedicated IMS stacks. Such multiple IMS stack implementations result in higher costs, IMS stack fragmentation, higher power consumption and longer time to market. Ecrio's patented method (FlexIMSTM) enables chipset vendors and handset vendors to deploy RCS clients without the need for multiple IMS stacks and associated issues. This method of designing RCS solutions is applicable for clients on Primary Devices (i.e. LTE Smart Phones) as well as Secondary Devices (i.e. Tablets, PCs and CPEs).
PARIS, France – January 13, 2015 – 4G chipmaker Sequans Communications S.A.

Cupertino, California – March 18th 2014 – Ecrio, the leading provider of LTE real time communications client software, announced today the issuance by the US Patent and Trademark Office of two patents that cover communication device architecture targeting 3GPP standards-compliant IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) devices. The patent, entitled "Real Time Communication Client Architecture", (US 8,639,253) was issued on January 28, 2014. The patented method covers the distributed architecture of IMS based software clients among Application and Modem Processors. The second patent, entitled “System, Method and Apparatus for Controlling Multiple Applications and Services on a Digital Electronic Device” (US 8,613,002) was issued on Dec 17, 2013. This patented method enables multiple IMS services to be active simultaneously using a single IMS Stack.
Cupertino, California – February 19th 2014 – Ecrio announced today that it will be demonstrating at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona its innovative cloud based solution that connects tablets and M2M endpoints requiring voice and video services over LTE networks being deployed globally. The Nimbus solution is a cloud based version of Ecrio’s patented and proven FlexIMS™ Architecture that has already been deployed in millions of devices. It provides in the cloud all the necessary features and functions of embedded software User Agents (UA) and connects to the Operators’ existing LTE networks as a virtualized UA that can be spawned rapidly and efficiently. The Nimbus solution works with standard WebRTC end points to allow them to interoperate with GSMA compliant IR.92 VoLTE, IR.94 Video and RCS in LTE enabled phones. Additionally, Ecrio offers a Thin Client with RCS capabilities to enhance the features and functionality.
CES 2014, Las Vegas, NV – January 8th 2014 – Ecrio further consolidates its position as the de facto supplier of IMS/VoLTE certified client software for 4G/LTE devices. Multiple commercial integrations of its FlexIMSTM Architecture powering Voice over LTE (VoLTE) and Rich Communication Suite (RCS) are being deployed across device chipsets and platforms. Ecrio announces the general availability of its FlexIMS-based VoLTE, Video Calling and RCS client software with the unique ability to allow individual services to be distributed between modem processors and application processors. The options provided by FlexIMS to distribute real time communication services among processors is an industry-first, single architecture for enabling the full span of VoLTE device endpoints. As networks move towards rolling out VoLTE with advanced IMS services, including Video Calling, RCS and LTE/WiFi interworking, these capabilities of Ecrio's FlexIMS Architecture become essential.
