VoLTE Promises to Significantly Lower Voice Infrastructure Costs and Improve Both Voice Quality and the Overall Customer Experience.
iGR believes that VoLTE is very important to LTE operators as it enables them to eventually terminate their legacy, circuit-switched voice 2G/3G network infrastructure in favor of consolidating voice traffic on the all-IP LTE network platform.
This promises to significantly lower voice infrastructure costs and improve both voice quality and the overall customer experience. In addition, VoLTE allows voice service to be integrated into other applications and content, such as games and social networking apps.
"However, the path to VoLTE is likely to be challenging for all parties. It will not be until much later this decade that the majority of U.S. voice traffic is on VoLTE and not traditional circuit connections", Iain Gillott, president and founder of iGR.
