Ecrio, the leading provider of LTE real-time communications client software, and Altair Semiconductor, a leading provider of LTE chipsets, announced their partnership to deliver VoLTE over Cat-M1.

Ecrio’s iota, anoptimized VoLTE software for IoT, will be embedded into Altair’s ALT1250 fully integrated Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) LTE solution.

Built on the FlexIMS architecture, Ecrio’s iota brings security, messaging and communication to the Internet of Things (IoT). iota is compliant with IMS/VoLTE standards targeting LTE Cat-M1 devices.

It is ideal for resource limited devices, such as wearables, PoS terminals, parking meters and alarm panels requiring voice calling capability. iota is optimized for Real-Time OS (RTOS) environments and fully leverages Ecrio’s deep expertise in IMS and VoLTE with over a decade of product deployments across device platforms.

The Altair ALT1250 is an LTE Release 13 Cat-M1 and NB1 IoT chipset, featuring ultra-low power consumption.

The ALT1250 is highly integrated, including an LTE baseband processor, RFIC, PMU, memory, Power Amplifiers, filters and antenna switch, as well as an integrated GNSS cellular-based location engine and MCU subsystem for customer developed applications. The ALT1250 is ideally suited for IoT applications, such as tracking, wearables, security and healthcare.

Last December, the two companies announced that Altair’s ALT1160 chipset – along with Ecrio’s MCCS VoLTE solution – have been certified for deployment on KDDI’s Japanese network.

Michel Gannage, Founder and CEO, Ecrio
Close on the heels of our mccs solution embedded in Altair’s Cat-1 devices, we look forward to enabling new and innovative voice services with iota on Altair’s Cat-M1 IoT devices targeting the ongoing evolution towards LPWA LTE networks.

Nohik Semel, VP Products and Engineering, Altair 
By adopting the iota solution, we are looking forward to seamlessly covering VoLTE for Cat-M1 devices as well, and are meeting the demand for mobile operators requiring voice services at ultra-low-power and cost.
