Supplier of VoLTE? www.mavenir.com I assume?

Re: Supplier of VoLTE? Neither company has officially confirmed that, but I think it's a safe assumption.

Re: Supplier of VoLTE? I would guess so. BTW, I'm at Verizon today but they don't have any VoLTE demos ready to go yet.

Re: Supplier of VoLTE? Alcatel-Lucent and Nokia (NSN), I think.

But VoLTE is a service that impacts the entire network from radio to core, so many vendors are involved.

Re: Supplier of VoLTE? A service like this is really best evaluated "hands-on". It would be well worth getting a review unit and writing it up on LR.

Future of Skype What does this say about the future of independent VoIP applications like Skype?  Will this just become normal for phone carriers to provide apps that do phone services?

I look for the day of the all-Internet handset (what might really be called the UMPC or Ultra-Mobile PC) that doesn't even have a CDMA connection, just regular LTE/tcpip.

I think it's already normal for carriers to provide phone services...this was the natural evolution for them, and it should be one thing -- THE thing -- they really get right.

And, yes, that day is coming next year for Verizon, which has said it will launch single-mode LTE phones then.

Re: Supplier of VoLTE? Definitely agree. We were left out of the gadget guys' group that got to try them earlier this month, but hopefully we'll get demo units soon.

CDMA handoff Btw, Verizon appears to be launching VoLTE before it has tackled the issue of handoff with its 3G CDMA network. It's positioning making it opt in as supporting customer choice, but that's more likely because it can't do it seamlessly.

Re: Future of Skype ...single-mode LTE phones...

That should be a boon for battery life on smartphones.

At least with mine, it seems like keeping the CDMA network active is the main drain of energy.
