India's Tata Communications Offering VoLTE Services
Published on: 10th Feb 2014
India's Tata Communications says that its network is now ready to supply Voice over LTE (VoLTE) to its IPX connected service providers.
Christian Michaud, SVP Product & Business Strategy, Global Voice Services, Tata Communications, says, "Our VoLTE offering enables mobile operators to generate additional revenue through increased usage, especially in high-margin roaming scenarios and international calling. Adding VoLTE to the portfolio also provides mobile operators with a potential competitive advantage over OTT providers, who may not be able to match the quality of experience."
New capabilities to enable enhanced network readiness include, HD Voice support and interoperability between fixed and mobile networks, as well as SIP IMS support. This means that HD calls are no longer limited to VoLTE-to-VoLTE handsets, but to any HD-enabled user, including fixed.
The company added that codec-aware routing allows it to detect the codec being requested for the call as it is being setup and to automatically route according codec-specific rules and logic.
