Nokia Voice over LTE (VoLTE)
As subscribers demand more services for less money, it’s vitally important for operators to protect their profitability by reducing delivery costs. The answer is to eliminate the need for separate voice and data networks.By providing VoLTE, an operator can enhance indoor coverage using Wi-Fi and extend its communication services with WebRTC. Voice over Wi-Fi (VoWiFi) and WebRTC use the same IMS core as VoLTE, enabling the same communication and multimedia services.
The Nokia VoLTE solution offers a clear evolutionary path that allows operators to take full advantage of LTE network according industry standards coexisting fully with existing voice core. VoWiFi and fixed, converged IP expand the user experience and enable operators to bundle services to differentiate their offering. Nokia VoLTE core, including IMS /TAS, SBC and HSS, provides a truly robust and reliable next generation voice and messaging service core. Our Rich Communication Suite (RCS) allows operators to offer their customers capabilities that make the mobile even more central to their private and business lives.
The future core network must simplify and optimize to cater for and comply with the multi-technology, multi-access highly convergent network requirements, as well as, to tackle operators’ need to develop, deliver and innovate faster. The core network must purge the closed architecture concept and must create an open eco-system to allow greater flexibility. Ultimately, to be resilient and future-proof, the core network must embrace, follow and utilize the full potential of telco cloud.
