Summer may not officially be here yet (although it certainly feels that way here on the balmy East Coast), but Media5 Corporation (News - Alert) is already sporting an unabashed summer glow.
Today, the provider of IP-based multimedia communications solutions unveiled its Media5-fone BBCom Edition, an IMS MMTEL compliant softclient for iOS devices including iPhone (News - Alert), iPad, and iPod Touch.
“The Media5-fone BBCom Edition has been engineered with interoperability in mind,” said Pascal Dore, manager of mobility products for Media5, in a statement. “It offers a comprehensive enriched communications service that is designed to give end-users more choices for personalizing their communication experience.”
In addition to boasting interoperability, the Media5-fone BBCom Edition also features an enhanced collection of services that are specifically designed for operators and service providers looking to bolster Average Revenue Per User (ARPU). Media5’s latest announcement builds upon the Media5-fone feature set with new and innovative MMTEL capabilities including: Presence, Network Address Book, Chat, Group Communications Enabler, and Smart Call Routing.
Media5, a global supplier of communications solutions for fixed and mobile service providers, unified communications services, and hosted communications services has even more to smile about than just its latest release as the company also announced today that it has opened a capital investment round to secure the next stage of the company’s growth. The management team and Board of Directors of Media5 have selected RSM Richter to provide management consulting and transaction support services.
In just a few days, Media5 will showcase its Media5-fone BBCom Edition at Mobile World Congress (News - Alert) 2012 in Barcelona, taking place Feb. 27 to March 1 in Barcelona, Spain, at Booth 2A101. The Media5-fone BBCom Edition is currently available for iOS devices and upcoming releases will add Android, Desktop Web and Native editions, as well as an RCS-e conforming edition as per the GSMA (News - Alert) initiative.
Just a few weeks ago, Media5 showed yet again why it deserves to have a sunny disposition for 2012 as the company announced that its family of Mediatrix access devices and secure VoIP gateways running the DGW v2.0 application are now Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) ready. Service Providers and end users of all types can now seamlessly implement VoIP-based technologies as they migrate from IPv4 to IPv6 networks.
