Alcatel Lucent says that it has won an LTE overlay network from Asia Pacific Telecom (APT) that will enable APT to be the first service provider in Taiwan to offer Voice over LTE (VoLTE).
Initial deployment of APT's LTE network and VoLTE service will begin in the first part of 2014 in the North, Central and South areas of Taiwan.
APT aims to complete the deployment by the end this year.
Tony Zee, CTO of APT said: "While other service providers in Taiwan hold VoLTE licenses, APT is the first to announce actual deployment plans. Not only will our customers have the best quality of voice, but they will also be able to seamlessly and simultaneously access data as well while having voice conversations over their devices."
Financial terms were not disclosed.
