Russia's Scartel to launch VoLTE with Huawei

Huawei reports that Scartel, a Russian mobile operator, has successfully implemented VoLTE (voice over LTE) with its SRVCC (Single Radio Voice Call Continuity) solution. Following implementation of the solution, Scartel is now technologically capable of supporting voice calls on its LTE network.

SRVCC enables LTE voice call handover in 2G/3G networks.

Huawei provides an end-to-end network solution for Scartel that covers the radio access network, Circuit Switch (CS) core network, IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS), Evolved Packet Core (EPC), and Huawei’s Ascend P1 smartphone.

  • Earlier this month, MegaFon announced plans to acquire Scartel for approximately US$1.8 billion.
