STOCKHOLM -- Worldwide, about 150 million people currently have access to LTE networks, which are now mostly used for data services. During the second half of 2011, Ericsson (NASDAQ:ERIC) began the commercial deployment of CSFB technology, providing consumers with telecom quality voice and SMS services in LTE smartphones on the global GSM/WCDMA market. This 3GPP standardized functionality has now been deployed in several networks in North America, Europe and the Asia Pacific region.

“We now introduce telecom grade voice services to work in combination with the superior data connection speeds that are available in LTE smartphones for the global GSM/WCDMA market. These commercial deployments of Circuit Switched Fallback prove the market maturity of this new technology and demonstrate Ericsson’s technology leadership and commitment to helping operators launch services on the latest consumer devices,” says Magnus Furustam, Head of Core & IMS at Business Unit Networks at Ericsson.
