Infotel Broadband, the subsidiary of Reliance Industries is all set to use Spirit DSP, a Moscow-based technology aimed at offering voice over through its 4G network. Using the Russian technology, the company will expand its broadband network with the provision of Skype-like voice and video calling services. Both the companies have signed a deal to commence the project in days to come.
Spirit DSP said in a statement that Reliance has chosen their services over other phone manufacturers to ensure better transmission of voice and video in 4G networks. The former added that Reliance also has plans to invest $10 billion in the broadband platform.
Spirit also said that the scarcity of mobile devices supporting Voice-over-LTE drives is the major factor that drives companies to develop softwares which are considered more flexible to use. The usage of LTE phones would only serve the data transmission cause and not the audio and video needs as the latter process can be transmitted only via 2G/3G network.
The carriers have been constantly deploying VVoIP services with their own brand name. This would avoid the users from shifting over to social networks like Skype, Facebook, and Whatsapp etc for audio and video transmissions.
The company's TeamSpirit software helps a user to transmit the audio and video packet via the LTE modem. The users can also access the application in new technology driven mobile devices. The strategy from Reliance shows the advanced flexibility aspects of the carriers over that of other phone makers.
The Spirit video engines are now available on Windows, Mac, Android and iOS devices. The users of smartphones, tablets and notebooks can make video calls from their devices to the PC. In addition to this, the above users can also participate in HD video conferencing adjusting the available functions to suit specific network conditions.
