fgVoIP Engine from fg microtec is the first Software Development Kit to enable full duplex, real-time voice on BlackBerry® smartphones with absolutely no GSM interaction

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, the leading provider of enterprise unified telephony applications for mobile phones, today announced the availability of the fgVoIP Engine, which enables BlackBerry® developers, for the first time, 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.

The SDK includes:

  •     fgVoIP Engine as a Java library
  •     Documentation
  •     Sample code in Java

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 organizations 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."
