Voice: The Old New Killer App?

Operators want to breathe new life into voice, but it will take more than better-quality calling

re: Voice: The Old New Killer App?

When T-mobile retired their UMA service...they didn't really retire it. They renamed it WiFi calling. What that means is that I can use my cell to make VoIP calls over WiFi and not use minutes. T-mobile is not supporting it on its iPhone but is on many Android devices (I am on an S3).

Why I like it is the basically free service that I have and I minimize minute usage. It also allows me to get service inside buildings where I often have trouble. My favorite bit with it was that I was recently in Canada and never had any roaming charges. I just used the hotel's WiFi. :)

All I can say about voice is I love my WiFi Calling feature on my T-mobile cell phone.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
