Alcatel-Lucent Reports Study Results on VoLTE Technology [Professional Services Close - Up]
(Professional Services Close - Up Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Alcatel-Lucent reported the results of an independent research study which found that its commercially deployed Voice-over-LTE (VoLTE) technology provides better service than 3G Circuit Switched (CS) voice and Internet calling services and Skype software.
According to a release from the company, the analysis found that VoLTE users experience considerably better call quality, connectivity and less drain on the batteries of their mobile devices.
Alcatel-Lucent said VoLTE enables 4G LTE operators to simultaneously deliver both faster mobile broadband and IP-based communications, including HD voice, HD video, presence and messaging across any connected network, device and application.
Consumers and businesses can extend their faster LTE data experience to voice calls or to connected devices, such as tablets and laptops so they may talk clearly in HD while browsing the Web, streaming movies, playing games and sharing multi-media content at LTE speeds.
"Based on our analysis of the data, VoLTE lived up to expectations," said Michael Thelander, CEO and Founder of Signals Research Group (SRG). "VoLTE delivered a consistently higher call quality than Circuit Switched voice and Over-the-Top (OTT) applications. While other network or background traffic downloading on a smartphone could bring Skype voice to its knees, there was no indication that it impacted the VoLTE call. In addition, VoLTE really shined when it came to its network requirements, consuming far less than a Skype voice call which translates into a meaningfully longer smartphone battery life."
SRG conducted its research from June to July 2014 to evaluate the performance of VoLTE against 3G CS voice and Skype.
