Voice-over-LTE (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. That’s because 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. To find out how to rise to this challenge, tune into our upcoming VoLTE testing webinar.
