DUBAI -- du, the Middle East region’s fastest growing telecommunications service provider, successfully achieved Voice over LTE (VoLTE) functionality in its live network recently, thanks to Nokia’s VoLTE solution and Professional Services. With the implementation of this solution, VoLTE compatible handsets successfully connected high-definition (HD) voice calls with faster call setup time, in just 1-2 seconds, while simultaneously accessing ultra-fast 4G data services over the LTE* network.

Nokia’s VoLTE solution based on its IMS (IP Multimedia Subsystem) successfully enabled VoLTE functionality in a most complex multi-vendor LTE network. The key to a successful voice service implementation in LTE network is the ability to execute a verified end-to-end VoLTE solution. Nokia’s VoLTE experts designed, tested and integrated VoLTE into du’s multi-vendor LTE network and achieved this Middle East-first VoLTE implementation in just 80 days, marking this as the world’s fastest implementation.

Recent tests in Nokia Networks Smart Labs show that VoLTE clients are network friendlier than other clients as overall data volume consumed over a period of time show significantly lower consumption for VoLTE, thanks to its more efficient behavior during stand-by mode. VoLTE clients also consume less smartphone battery compared to other clients and put less signalling load on networks. With VoLTE, mobile operators have a powerful tool to compete with OTT players.
