Abstract: Is the smartphone an essential prop for life? Over the past few years, the number of smartphones’ users worldwide is facing an incredibly fast growth. With the smartphones evolution, applications based on Internet access have grown almost exponentially, mostly due to their minimal requirements and cost. Over The Top (OTT) applications began to appear and people started to use them to communicate instead of the traditional calls and Short Message Service (SMS). It is cheaper – most of these applications are cost free – and have more features, when it comes to comparison with the traditional mechanisms. To try to cope with the OTT usage growth, Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) came together with a solution: the creation of a solution that could compete against the OTT phenomena – the Rich Communication Suite (RCS). RCS specifies a set of communication services, including instant messaging, file transfer, real time video sharing and Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) calls. WIT-Software has an RCS Solution called WIT Communications Suite (WCS) that is currently available for the iOS and Android mobile platforms. With the launch of BlackBerry 10, a mobile phone that runs QNX (a Unix-like system), it is now possible to use the communication stack library developed in C++ by WIT-Software in BlackBerry 10 applications. Therefore, it is easier to bring WCS to BlackBerry 10 platform, and that is the goal of this internship. And yes! There are new props that can’t be dispensed in today’s life.
