CUPERTINO, Calif. and TOKYO, Feb. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Renesas Mobile
Corporation, a premier supplier of advanced cellular platforms and Ecrio Inc.
announce the completion of the integration of the Voice over LTE (VoLTE)
capabilities for Renesas Mobile's communication processor and slim modem
platforms for LTE smart phones. Ecrio's FlexIMS based VoLTE Client Software is
now integrated and optimised in the MP5232 and SP2532 multi-mode LTE platforms
paving the way for the broad supply of VoLTE Services based on the 3GPP IP
Multimedia Subsystem (IMS). Renesas Mobile combined the FlexIMS based SMS and
VoLTE software with its own technology to meet the GSMA IR.92 requirements for
efficient usage of LTE radio resources through techniques such as header
compression and voice specific scheduling plus ensuring conversational Quality
of Service (QoS) over both TD-LTE and FDD-LTE. Full inter-system handovers are
also supported. Renesas Mobile will be demonstrating VoLTE capabilities on the
MP5232 platform at Mobile World Congress 2013 in Barcelona on both TD-LTE and
FDD-LTE systems. Further details of the embedded solution were recently
published in the February 2013 edition of Mobile Europe and Renesas Mobile has
written a whitepaper about VoLTE power consumption.

Based on the FlexIMS™ Architecture, Ecrio's Mobile Communications Client Suite
(MCCS) is a unique solution that incrementally enables VoLTE, Video Calling
and Rich Communication Suite (RCS) services to be implemented with the
flexibility to distribute functionality across processors. This architecture
enables low power consumption in both LTE and 3G modes, as well as the low
latencies for all the related IMS services.

"Ecrio's unique solution has rapidly enabled VoLTE and Video Calling services
across our product portfolio," commented Heikki Tenhunen, senior vice
president Renesas Mobile. "The combined Renesas Mobile and Ecrio turn-key
solution enables the OEMs to deliver a richer service experience with the
highest quality multimedia communication functionality. Renesas Mobile has
commercial grade VoLTE solutions available on our power and performance
optimised platforms."

"This is a proud moment in our relationship with Renesas Mobile, where our
companies have executed flawlessly," said Michel Gannage, Ecrio founder and
CEO. "We are pleased to provide a ready and mature solution, leveraging our
mutual industry-leading positions."
