Despite its complexity, it seems there cannot be any discussion in favor of against its implementation as operators need it because still voice services are their main competitive advantage. And perhaps, this is where all issues with VoLTE start. It is not that VoLTE is complex or even difficult to implement or monetize in the long run, but the fact that operators are still perceived as being mostly voice providers that happen to offer access to data. That is, if voice is mobile operators’ main competitive advantage today, they are still in trouble.
Voice Quality and Testing Are Priorities for VoLTE in 2017
Voice over LTE, or VoLTE, is in many ways one of the final frontiers for LTE. Most voice calls still use 3G networks, but in the next few years mobile operators are expected to make a massive transition to VoLTE. This will eliminate the need to have voice and data on separate networks and open a new era of integration for next-generation voice services … Keep reading the original post here
