So You Think You’re Ready for VoLTE?
Webinar of the Week Blog Series
Webinar of the Week VoLTE has been in the news a lot lately, but not for the right reasons. The headlines have been dominated by stories of repeated delays in tier-1 operators’ VoLTE launches. But how could this possibly be? Based on our interactions with tier-1 mobile network operators (MNOs) and network equipment manufacturers (NEMs), we have come to the conclusion that the industry is hugely underestimating the complexity involved in deploying VoLTE services. One of the primary reasons is that VoLTE introduces an extremely sensitive type of data to networks that are already struggling under the load of unprecedented growth in mobile data. This, coupled with a number of incorrect assumptions about VoLTE, is creating a false sense of readiness.
To ensure VoLTE success, you need to deal with the complexity of live network conditions while trying to provide high quality, reliable VoLTE service. In my webinar, I describes the challenges in more detail, typical use cases and the KPIs you should be looking out for. I also provides a great overview of EXFO’s QualityAssurer and the crucial role it can play in the success of your VoLTE deployments.
If you are looking to implement VoLTE—but are unsure as to the best testing approach, this webinar is for you!
