[SHENZHEN, China, November 8th, 2011]: Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, successfully demonstrated its RCS-e（Rich Communication Suite-Enhanced）service in the GSMA（GSM Association） Rich Communications Ecosystem Euro Summit. Huawei showcased the RCS-e used on 3G and WiFi connections, the RCS-e Application Service and the IMS（IP multimedia subsystem） call technology.
The event attracted operators from 14 countries, including not only the nearby Baltic operators, but also operators from as far as France and Azerbaijan. In total about 100 operators and suppliers representatives gathered in Stockholm for a full-day agenda.
Huawei demonstrated its RCS-e client on a U8800 device in a Huawei IMS-based RCS service – the Wo Friends service, which is already deployed by China Unicom. While the Huawei RCS-e demonstration appealed to the present operators, the Wo Friends service gave them an even more dazzling experience as the unique and commercialized RCS-e-based service has never been exhibited by any other companies.
Most operators, as well as senior GSMA representatives joined Huawei for an open discussion on how to deploy RCS-e. During the discussion Huawei shared its experience in developing and testing IMS and RCS-e systems, which was valuable to the operators who are preparing their own RCS-e launches. Huawei also demonstrated support for the RCS-e slogan “It just works!” by committing to deliveries of a terminal with native, out of the box, built-in RCS-e service, another aspect of Huawei’s product that operators found favorable.
Mr. Duan Chengen, President of Huawei Core Network Western Europe, said: “RCS is the natural evolution of voice and short messages. It’s a very important solution from the Huawei portfolio. Huawei is glad to be the first provider to demo this end-to-end solution, and Huawei will continue to propel the progress in commercial RCS services”.
