Mobile Ecosystem Partners Support Ecrio’s New FastTrack™ Framework

Ecrio, a client software company focused on enabling communications-rich IP opportunities, today named five mobile industry leaders – AFD Tech, Aplix, CIBER, L&T Infotech and Persistent Systems – as partners who are working with Ecrio’s new FastTrack™ framework to accelerate the creation and rollout of new services and applications that tap rich IP communications. This cross-section of industry leaders includes both application platforms (Aplix) and developers (AFD Tech, Cyber, L&T Infotech, and Persistent Systems.)

The FastTrack™ client framework lets developers add rich IP communications, such as VoIP, rich messaging and content sharing, to applications written in Java, Flash, Android and other popular environments. Developers can do so without coding in ‘C’, or having specialized knowledge of SIP, IMS or RCS technology. The Ecrio Applicator™ interface, a significant breakthrough within the FastTrack framework, lets developers simply add commands for functions (such as messaging or calling) using unmodified run-time application environments.

Diane Myers of Infonetics, regarded as one of the VoIP industry’s top analysts and a recent judge at GSMA’s 2010 RCS Dev Challenge, said “Creative approaches like Ecrio's new FastTrack framework, along with RCS and other industry initiatives, will help operators to deploy a new range services that use rich IP communications."

Ryu Koriyama, Aplix CEO, said “The industry has been looking for breakthrough ways for developers to quickly build compelling offers, on mobile platforms such as Aplix’ JBlend, that tap rich communications. Ecrio’s FastTrack is a big step forward, particularly when paired with JBlend and services made possible by MIDP 3.0.”

Vir Bhanu, Vice President and Area Director for CIBER India, said, “Ecrio has enabled an ecosystem where mobile application developers, operators, and ODMs can quickly deploy innovative and evolving rich IP communications. CIBER is well positioned to develop, integrate and deploy these solutions.”

“As an Ecrio partner, Persistent was able to leverage the FastTrack framework to quickly build innovative applications, the recent ones being the Ecrio J2ME and Flash clients for the mobile handset and PC,” said Dr. R. Venkateswaran, Head - Telecom Business Unit, Persistent Systems Ltd. “Ecrio’s FastTrack is a creative way to build communications-rich applications in days, not months."

“Ecrio is pleased to see our partners in the mobile ecosystem recognize FastTrack as an exciting new option within the world of rich communications,” stated Ecrio founder and CEO Nagesh Challa. “RCS, One Voice and other industry initiatives are on the right track, with FastTrack now offering an operator and developer shortcut to new services. We look forward to working with these partners and adding new ones in the months ahead.”

Ecrio’s FastTrack framework and Applicator will be publicly unveiled at Mobile World Congress, Barcelona, Spain, from Feb. 15 - 18, 2010. Demos of the FastTrack framework powering several different applications, including finalists in GSMA’s RCS Dev Challenge for Best RCS Mobile Device Client and Best RCS PC Client, are available by appointment.
