Germany's E-Plus Picks ZTE for VoLTE

ZTE is working with Germany's E-Plus on the deployment of an IMS based core network infrastructure that will be the basis for a commercial voice-over-LTE (VoLTE) service in the E-Plus network. Trials are underway.  ZTE has been a supplier of 3G and 4G products to E-Plus since 2009.

Christoph Bladoschewski, Department Manager Voice and Services at E-Plus said: “It has become a tradition that E-Plus, with our strategic partner ZTE, leads the market in introducing new technologies in the core network. The introduction of IMS in such a short time is a true masterpiece by ZTE.”

Li Jun, CEO of ZTE Deutschland GmbH, said: "We are very honoured to provide IMS network and VoLTE solutions for E-Plus. ZTE's VoLTE solution will help E-Plus to provide high-quality voice services and guarantee high-bandwidth data services based on LTE access. ZTE’s implementation of the VoLTE technology will also help improve E-Plus's network profitability."
