A good voice call is one that connects quickly, is always clear and is not disrupted or dropped. As the industry moves into the 5G era, voice will become more important, not less. A well optimized network for high quality Voice over LTE (VoLTE) is a solid foundation on the way to Voice over 5G.
3GPP standardization dictates that 5G voice will use the same IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS)-based architecture used in Voice over LTE (VoLTE). Voice over 5G and VoLTE are just different ways to access the same IMS-based voice services.
Only a cloud native IMS core can take full advantage of the capabilities of 5G. IMS provides a network architecture that delivers innovative and reliable voice services enhanced with open API support, programmability, network slicing and automation.
Nokia explains why IMS-based VoLTE forms the basis of 5G voice services and explores the 3GPP deployment strategies, the differences between EPS Fallback and CS Fallback and how the IMS will become part of the cloud-native 5G Core.
Key topics include:
Global voice trends
IMS voice will override CS voice
Voice core evolution towards the IMS voice
Voice options with 5G SA architecture
