Published on: 18th Feb 2014
Alcatel Lucent says that it has globally shipped more than 125 million Voice over IP subscriber licenses around the world.
Voice over LTE (VoLTE) subscriber licenses comprised the bulk of Alcatel-Lucent's shipments, with more than 88 million licenses issued.
Diane Myers, Principal Analyst VoIP, UC and IMS, Infonetics: "IP communications is the path for today's operator to remain relevant and meet marketing, end users and business customers expectations within increasingly condensed timeframes. It requires operators to build networks that can meet all of the requirements of faster, nimbler, and innovative without compromising network performance and availability."
An Infonetics Research report cited the company as the industry revenue leader for IMS, call session control function and IMS voice application servers for calendar year 2013.
Andrew McDonald, President, IP Platforms, Alcatel-Lucent: "Alcatel-Lucent provides an end-to-end VoLTE solution that includes IMS, Evolved Packet Core and RAN. This is important because VoLTE resets the bar for today's new mobile voice by leveraging tight integration across the device and network. NAR operators will lead the deployment of VoLTE, but it is essential to mobile innovation around the globe."
