Cellcrypt, the leading provider of encrypted voice calling on mobile phones, today announced that it has launched a full-duplex version of its Cellcrypt Mobile for BlackBerry encrypted voice calling application for CDMA networks.

Full-duplex allows simultaneous two-way communication compared to half-duplex that provides two-way communication that is not simultaneous ("walkie-talkie" style). This is the world's first full-duplex encrypted voice call capability on a BlackBerry smartphone on a CDMA network using an IP-based software-only solution. Cellcrypt launched the world's first half-duplex calling solution in 2010.

Cellcrypt Mobile is used by governments and corporations globally and is a downloadable application for off-the-shelf smartphones that provides end-to-end encryption of voice calls over cellular (2G, 3G, 4G), Wi-Fi and satellite networks. Cellcrypt Mobile uses cryptography certified to the US government National Institute of Standards and Technology FIPS 140-2 security standard and has been awarded the CESG Claims Tested Mark (CCTM) from the UK government's information assurance authority.

"Cellcrypt is unique in the industry in overcoming significant technical challenges to deliver the industry's first full-duplex BlackBerry secure voice calling solution on CDMA," said Richard Greco, CEO of Cellcrypt. "Not only is this testament to Cellcrypt's world-leading innovation in secure voice calling solutions for commercial off-the-shelf smartphones, but this latest update is spectacular in that it provides outstanding performance and seamless interoperability with many other devices on both CDMA and GSM networks, globally."

Cellcrypt Mobile for BlackBerry version 6.1.1 and above supports full-duplex on CDMA and is available immediately on BlackBerry Bold 9650 and BlackBerry Style 9670 smartphones from Verizon running BlackBerry OS 6.0.524.
