VoLTE and network functions virtualization (NFV) are both gaining traction with many global launches and many more forecasted in the coming years. At the same time, mobile and interconnect service providers are also busy enhancing their networks and software-defined infrastructures for enhanced consumer services and for better user experiences. One of those key enhancements to the core and edge of the networks is the enablement of full high-definition voice communications services with support for the Enhanced Voice Services (EVS) codec.

Introduction of full HD voice with the EVS codec requires updates in the core and the edge of the service provider and interconnect networks to address audio transcoding between EVS and other codecs. NFV-based approaches offer the ability to do this transcoding in a distributed and secure manner, at efficient scale and with elasticity from the telco cloud. At the same time, NFV-based transcoding solutions with virtual network functions like session border controllers (SBCs) at the edge of the networks mitigate challenges such as security threats, signaling and media interoperability, and support new VoLTE roaming architectures.

Join us to learn more about the best practices to address EVS transcoding in the core and edge of your networks at scale using NFV-based approaches to provide a significantly enhanced user experience for your subscribers.

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.
