StarHub Makes Southeast Asia's First 3GPP Standard VoLTE Call

Published on:

Singapore's StarHub has successfully completed the first Voice over LTE (VoLTE) call based on IR.92 in a live network in Southeast Asia. The operator used equipment supplied by NSN for the trial.

To enable VoLTE, StarHub deployed NSN's Open TAS (Telecommunications Application Server) for voice, Home Subscriber Server (HSS) and IP Multi Media Subsystem (IMS).

VoLTE services are part of an existing LTE agreement that was signed between NSN and StarHub in 2012.

"By enabling the first 3GPP standard VoLTE call in Southeast Asia, NSN has helped StarHub reach an important milestone in the region's telecommunications industry, an achievement that lays the foundation for the delivery of HD voice services over LTE to users in Singapore," said John Lancaster-Lennox, head of South Asia at NSN.
