MILAN -- Vodafone Italy, one of the country's largest operators and a fully-owned subsidiary of the Vodafone Group plc, has selected Nokia Networks to introduce commercial Voice over LTE (VoLTE) services on its network. Under the 5-year contract, Nokia Networks will implement its multifunctional Telecommunications Application Server (TAS) in a virtual, cloud-based environment to improve service agility and optimize network resource utilization for Vodafone Italy.

VoLTE - a technology that ensures crystal-clear voice quality As a next-generation technology, VoLTE delivers multiple benefits for operators and customers alike. These include high-definition (HD) voice quality, faster call set-up times with voice continuity, and optimized performance under load. The overall data consumption and signaling load is also lower compared to over-the-top voice applications.

Key highlights of the deal:

  • TAS and Home Subscriber Server (HSS), including key IMS application server functions such as MultiMedia Telephony (MMTel), Service Centralization and Continuity Applicaton Server (SCC AS) and IP Multimedia Service Switching Function (IM-SSF) to enable VoLTE services, together with Cloud Application Manager (Network Functions Virtualization Manager) and NetAct (Element Management System)

    • Mobile Softswitch (MSS) with enhanced Single Radio Voice Call Continuity (eSRVCC) to assist in voice call continuity between VoLTE and circuit-switched networks

    • Network planning and optimization services to support the VolTE rollout
