With the implementation of Voice over LTE (VoLTE), voice will become data. In South Korea the first commercial VoLTE networks have been launched, and the evolution to VoLTE has already started.
In another major milestone, Renesas Mobile Corporation, a premier supplier of advanced cellular platforms with its headquarters in Japan, has announced that it has successfully demonstrated high definition VoLTE and short messaging service (SMS) over the air. The test was conducted using Nokia Siemens Networks’ commercially available infrastructure, and it represents the first over-the-air demonstration of calls to and from an Android 4.0-based device using VoLTE.
The implications of the VoLTE evolution are far-reaching and will bring many advantages for operators, including higher efficiency and lower costs. VoLTE will enable a rich multimedia voice experience, helping to improve the competitive position of operators against OTT players.
Nokia Siemens Networks is proud to be working with Renesas as they continue their industry-leading deployment of VoLTE. We extend our congratulations to them for this great achievement!
