Alcatel-Lucent, specialised in global communications, has shipped more than 125 million Voice over IP subscriber licenses around the world, as 4G service providers drive to deploy Voice over LTE.
With the deployment of VoLTE, operators will be able to 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 shipped more than 88 million Voice over LTE subscriber licenses, representing the bulk of its shipments.
"IP communications is the path for today's operator to remain relevant and meet marketing, end users and business customers expectations within increasingly condensed timeframes. It requires operators to build networks that can meet all of the requirement", said Diane Myers, Principal Analyst VoIP, UC and IMS, Infonetics.
Alcatel-Lucent's IMS communications allows operators to earn more by expanding their brand to reach new markets that are increasingly using mobile broadband and IP communications, as it provides New Conversation Experience APIs and APIs for real time communications across the web (WebRTC).
Alcatel-Lucent will present its VoLTE Solution at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, February 24-27, 2014.
