eBook: Is VoLTE the Next Generation of Voice?


In the U.S. we are anxiously awaiting VoLTE, the GSMA-based standard for delivering voice calls over LTE networks. Although some operators are expected to begin deploying the technology later this year, there are still many questions about how the technology will be deployed and what it will mean to operators and consumers.

VoLTE is being eyed by operators such as Verizon Wireless and MetroPCS because it allows them to reform spectrum currently reserved for CDMA services, and allow operators to offer advanced services such as video calling. For application developers, it could make voice services easier to integrate into their applications.

But there are other options, such as VoHSPA, which is in the early stages of development along with the traditional over-to-top VOIP providers such as Skype. Will VoLTE be a friend or foe of these other technologies? This eBook will look at the latest developments in VoLTE and what it means for the wireless operators and the entire wireless ecosystem.
