fg microtec, provider of enterprise unified telephony applications for mobile phones, has announced the availability of the fgVoIP Engine, which enables BlackBerry developers to integrate a third party VoIP technology with high quality full duplex media processing capabilities into applications they build for the BlackBerry platform.
fg microtec offers the fgVoIP Engine as a Software Development Kit (SDK) for the BlackBerry platform. Through the fgVoIP Engine, developers will solve the major challenge of adding full duplex (sending and receiving) real time voice to a BlackBerry smartphone.
fg microtec is providing the fgVoIP Engine to companies developing real time applications for the BlackBerry platform, such as telephony and UC clients, as well as organisations interested in implementing VoIP on BlackBerry devices.
“VoIP on BlackBerry smartphones has been both a challenge and a market requirement for quite some time now. Indeed, in some cases, companies have tried to crack this problem for years without success,” said Robert Mirbaha, fg microtec’s CEO. “We believe that through our new fgVoIP Engine, BlackBerry developers will now be able to bring their VoIP-enabled applications to the market in less time, and enable more BlackBerry smartphone users to benefit from the low call cost
advantages of VoIP.”
fg microtec has 10 years of mobile application development experience, specifically in real time applications such as VoIP. The company’s VoIP technology has been in the marketplace since 2006 and allows high-quality, reliable full duplex voice encoding and decoding with low delay, suitable for VoIP applications. fg microtec has developed VoIP technologies and VoIP clients for Symbian, Windows Mobile, iPhone and the BlackBerry platform.
The fgVoIP Engine SDK will be available in early May.
