Voice over LTE (VoLTE)
VoLTE: harness the power of LTE for communication
As subscribers demand more services for less money, it’s vitally important for operators to protect their profitability by reducing delivery costs. The answer is to eliminate the need for separate voice and data networks.
By providing VoLTE, an operator can enhance indoor coverage using Wi-Fi and extend its communication services with WebRTC. Voice over Wi-Fi (VoWiFi) and WebRTC use the same IMS core as VoLTE, enabling the same communication and multimedia services.
T-Mobile talks about their Un-carrier program, the ability to stay bold and shake up the industry by challenging the status-quo and how their partnership with Nokia has contributed to their success.
