Application developers benefit from the support for 3G-324M provided by Dialogic HMP Software 3.1 which gives them the flexibility to create advanced mobile services. With 3G-324M capability and support for the AMR-NB coder in addition to the existing SIP, telephony media and H.263 video capabilities of HMP Software 3.1, applications can be created which provide voice and video services to 3G wireless devices as well as IP soft client, video phone endpoints. Dialogic HMP Software 3.1 can also be used as a platform to provide 3G/2G gateway functionality for video-enabled applications by delivering just the audio portion of a video call to an audio-only 2G endpoint.
Leading developers are quickly integrating the latest video and 3G wireless capabilities of Dialogic HMP Software Release 3.1 into their solutions to expand their business reach.
