Alcatel-Lucent provided an interesting metric for VoIP and VoLTE: the company has now shipped more than 125 million Voice over IP subscriber licenses to service providers, including more than 88 million licenses issued for VoLTE subscriber lines.
Alcatel-Lucent notes that VoLTE will help operators reduce operational costs by moving to an all IP network, free up precious spectrum to meet increasing demand for mobile broadband, and combine HD voice, video conferencing and data with the lightning speed of 4G LTE networks.
“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," stated Andrew McDonald, President, IP Platforms, Alcatel-Lucent.
