Russia's Scartel Demos VoLTE With Huawei
MOSCOW -- Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, today announced it helped Russian mobile operator, Scartel, successfully implement VoLTE (voice over LTE) with a SRVCC (Single Radio Voice Call Continuity) solution. Following implementation of the solution, Scartel is now technologically capable of supporting voice calls on its LTE network.
SRVCC implements a handover function that enables LTE voice call continuity in 2G/3G networks without any perceivable interruptions for the end user. This allows Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs) that use Scartel’s LTE network to support voice calls.
VoLTE improves overall sound quality and call reliability, and provides high voice connection speeds. With VoLTE, voice calls can be established in only two seconds, much faster than traditional 2G/3G network setups.
