Over the last ten years, the operator's belief in Voice over WiFi (VoWiFi) has transformed from the unthinkable to the undeniable. As subscribers began to spread the lore of WiFi and the beauty of its download speeds, operators continued their coverage saga, venturing to seek a solution for the historic disappearance of indoor voice signal. Alas, the legend of WiFi for macro data offload awoke the mobile industry, and at that very moment voice over IP (VoIP) matured and blossomed into a technology they could embrace. VoWiFi had finally arrived, and when it was presented the golden apple, it became a must-have phenomenon to solve indoor coverage problems, extended data offload and create new types of roaming arrangements. While the legend of VoWiFi is undisputable, there remains several myths around its existence and deployment. This webinar will dispel the five ever-present myths of VoWiFi.

  1. VoLTE shall precede any VoWiFi solution
  2. VoWiFi requires the strength of a thousand men, a king's ransom and years of toil
  3. Open market devices shall not be utilized with VoWiFi
  4. Downloadable is synonymous with its evil cousin, the OTT service
  5. Thou shall only deploy VoWiFi with IPSEC

Join Heavy Reading's Dan O'Shea and John Hoadley from Sonus Networks for a wide-ranging conversation as we explore the five myths of VoWiFI and how to conquer them.
