WARSAW -- Polkomtel, the Polish operator of the Plus network, has partnered with Nokia Networks to launch Poland's first public trial of its Wi-Fi Calling+ service. Based on Nokia's Voice over Wi-Fi (VoWiFi) solution, the new service lets users make regular calls when connected by Wi-Fi in locations with poor mobile coverage. The common voice core for VoWiFi and voice over LTE (VoLTE) enables a smooth evolution of enhanced voice services going forward.

During the trial period, the Wi-Fi Calling+ service is available to Plus users in Poland and across the European Union. Polkomtel is testing the functionality before its commercial launch, gathering feedback and ensuring its flawless integration and operation in the Plus network.

Kruz, 
 
Yes, but as part of the tests, if you start a connection within the Wi-Fi and lose the connection to this network the call will be interrupted and there will not be available functionality of switching calls between the Wi-Fi network and the celullar network. Don't forget all this is part of the tesrs and not how it will always be.

Kruz, 

In the case of a call placed on a Wi-Fi network the caller will have to trust the network. If the call is interrupted the caller will not be able to switch calls between a Wi-Fi network and the cellular network.

Re: Roaming
I am not worried about security, I am just interested in seeing how they apply it to roaming users and the business model it is working under.

Roaming
What happens to user that are roaming? And how is it priced? And how is the handover when on a call and user goes into an untrusted WIFI network?
