Global IP, a provider of multimedia IP, has announced that it is enabling Android mobile application developers to build first-rate VoIP-enabled clients with GIPS VoiceEngine mobile. Nimbuzz, a mobile social messaging application, will offer HD voice (VoIP) on Android phones.

The company said that the GIPS VoiceEngine allows Android developers to build VoIP-enabled applications that offer HD voice, while also tackling the IP network related issues such as delay, jitter, packet loss, bandwidth constraints, noise and echo.

With GIPS engineering expertise, developers can quickly and effectively build their applications enabling them to concentrate on their core business.”
