GCT Semiconductor, Inc. Key Developments

GCT Semiconductor Inc. and Ecrio Inc. Collaborate to Develop Volte Solution Optimized for 4G LTE Home Phone Gateways and CPEs

Ecrio Inc., and GCT Semiconductor Inc., announce a collaboration to provide an integrated solution including Ecrio's FlexIMS Voice over LTE (VoLTE) software and GCT's Category 4 LTE Chipset, GDM7243S. This integrated solution of GCT and Ecrio recently completed pre-certification with a Tier 1 Operator. This turnkey solution fully meets the requirements of LTE-based phones and CPEs, both for traditional landline replacement as well as 3G to 4G upgrades. The pre-certified solution allows OEMs and ODMs to rapidly accelerate their VoLTE-enabled product rollouts worldwide. GCT's GDM7243S combines RF and baseband to offer a highly integrated solution, optimized to ensure high performance and low power consumption, as well as increased battery life. GCT's chip delivers an embedded VoLTE implementation for a variety of LTE connected devices. Ecrio's FlexIMS™ patented technology uniquely allows for the broadest coverage of VoLTE device types including LTE home/enterprise CPEs with full legacy support of mandatory FAX/Modem and regulatory E911 and TTY capabilities.

GCT Semiconductor Announces the Availability Fixed 4G LTE Indoor and Outdoor Wireless Router

GCT Semiconductor announced the availability of a new revolutionary low-cost, high performance, fixed 4G LTE indoor and outdoor wireless router designed to provide superior wireless performance and increase subscriber satisfaction. The new router's unique features reduce the installation setup time, OpEx and churn for service providers. This unique LTE router combines GCT's highly integrated LTE chip, GDM7243, with Direct Beam's patented advanced software algorithms and technology. With this revolutionary technology, the LTE router's coverage and speed are up to ten times higher than any other router available presently. In addition, the device automatically performs self-beams steering adjustments when changes in the RF environment occur, therefore maximizing the best link performance at all times.

Ecrio Inc. and GCT Semiconductor Inc. Extend their Partnership to Integrate Ecrio FlexIMS Based VoLTE on GCT's 4G LTE Chipsets

Ecrio Inc. and GCT Semiconductor Inc. extend their partnership to integrate Ecrio FlexIMS based VoLTE on GCT's 4G LTE Chipsets. GCT's LTE solution, GDM7243, combines RF and baseband to offer a highly integrated chip, optimized to ensure high performance and lower power consumption to increase battery life. GCT's chip delivers embedded VoLTE for devices such as smartphones, allowing ODMs to rapidly accelerate their VoLTE rollout. Ecrio FlexIMS technology allows for the broadest coverage of real time communication end points (including smartphones, smartTVs, computers, CPE). It was designed to enable IMS services functions to be distributed between the modem processor and application/network processors. RCS or video calling functions can be incrementally integrated on an application or network processor to add to VoLTE functionality implemented in the Modem Processor.
