SPIRIT DSP Powers New LG U+ Video Calling Service

SPIRIT DSP, the world's #1 voice and video over IP engines provider serving more than 1 billion users in 100+ countries, has announced today that Korean service provider, LG U+, a subsidiary of LG Group, has selected SPIRIT’s TeamSpirit® Voice&Video Engine Mobile to power a new video calling service. LG U+ is the third largest carrier in South Korea.

The new LG U+ service enables subscribers to make voice and video calls using Samsung Galaxy Player. LG U+ offers its subscribers media players with special preinstalled application. It includes a telephone number that allows Samsung Galaxy Player users to throw their landline phones overboard. Calls between Galaxy Players are free, and LG U+ expects the main source of revenue will be calls between Galaxy Player and mobile and landline phones. Video calls from media player to another Galaxy Player or cell phones are powered by TeamSpirit Voice & Video Engine Mobile, which allows LG U+ to provide crystal-clear HD video quality. The new service based on Samsung Galaxy Player has become popular among LG U+ subscribers. SPIRIT experts expect that LG U+, which serves millions of landline phone users, will soon have 500,000 subscribers of its new service.

"LG U+, with its core approach of differentiation in technology innovative, is a long-standing SPIRIT customer who has come to rely on our technology to provide high quality VVoIP services to its subscribers,” said SPIRIT's VP Alex Kravchenko. “This well-timed launch of this new service will help LG U+ bring in new subscribers and avoid loss of revenue resulting from subscribers switching to OTT providers like Skype and Google. We’re pleased that SPIRIT products allow our operator customers to offer competitive solutions and hold their leadership positions in this rapidly changing telecommunications market.”

LG U+ already uses SPIRIT's TeamSpirit Voice&Video Engine to provide top quality voice and video communication in its U+070 Mobile service. SPIRIT engine technology can also be found in many other VVoIP services and VVoIP-enabled devices in the Korean market, which is known for pioneering breakthrough innovation in IP communications. SPIRIT software is used by Korea Telecom, KT Tech, Acromate, iRiver, Samsung, LG-Dacom, Seoul Commtech, Hyundai, LIG Nex1, Core Logic etc.

TeamSpirit Voice&Video Engine is compatible with RCS-e and VoLTE specifications. It includes resource-efficient voice and video codecs, echo and noise suppression, advanced tools for stream protection and adaptation to changes in network, execution and physical environments. Apart from standard IMS codecs, SPIRIT offers industry leading IP-MR™ (IETF RFC 6262) adaptive and error-resilient HD voice coding technology that has been selected by Tier1 service providers to deliver HD voice communications to dozens of millions of users of their mobile VVoIP services.

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...
As someone who has been dedicated to automation and Application Release Automation (ARA) technology for almost six years now, one of the most common questions I get asked regards Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS).

A solution to the deployment and runtime challenges of an application? Why would anyone using a PaaS then need an automation engine with workflow ...

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage.

An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...
