Foxconn, a LTE mobile phone manufacturer, has selected Spirent Communications’ BEEHD VoLTE Client Framework to design and develop Android-based mobile handsets with VoLTE voice and video calling capabilities for global telecom markets.

Foxconn, the largest OEM device manufacturer of mobile handsets in the world, will use BEEHD to optimize handsets in order to provide better communication capabilities and better customer experience.

“Spirent has worked with us to optimize the solution for enabling hardware-accelerated VoLTE voice and video calls. BEEHD enabled us to massively market LTE mobile handsets with exceptional VoLTE voice and video communication capabilities,” said Andy Horng, director of Software Design Center of FIH Mobile.

Foxconn is using BEEHD through the development of LTE mobile handsets, from initial design to wide scale deployment on major mobile operators’ networks.

“Creating interoperable VoLTE enabled handsets can be challenging,” said Pierre Hagendorf, general manager of Spirent’s Developer Tools Business Unit.

The features of BEEHD framework include application programming interfaces (APIs), optimized media engine, patented video quality technology, flexible signaling capabilities and optimization of interoperability. BEEHD also includes internal IMS/VoLTE capabilities that allow developers to build voice and video enabled mobile handsets that can easily run on VoLTE compliant networks, said Spirent.
