Zain completed the first Voice over LTE (VoLTE) call over its commercial LTE network in Kuwait. NSN is the VoLTE solution provider. Nokia Networks’ VoLTE solution consisted of its IMS (IP Multimedia Subsystem), Subscriber Data Management, and Open TAS (Telecommunications Application Server). Open TAS provides supplementary services that are applicable for voice, messaging, and video sessions for subscribers in LTE and other broadband networks.
“Zain further affirms its leadership position by introducing the latest technologies to constantly improve its customers’ experience,” said Omar Saud Al Omar, Chief Executive Officer of Zain Kuwait. “Today’s VoLTE success with Nokia Networks’ solution is an important milestone in our planning for the future, which will translate into providing enhanced mobile broadband services to our customers across Kuwait, offering them an opportunity to enjoy unparalleled quality.”
