Voice over long-term evolution (VoLTE/Voice over LTE) is a technological specification that describes the procedures and standards for providing data and voice communication over 4G LTE networks. It is a technique for generating, managing, and provisioning high-speed voice, messaging, and video services on a 4G wireless network for portable and mobile devices. So, what is driving the growth of the VoLTE market? Let’s have a look.
Enhanced spectral efficiency
Spectral efficiency is the speed of transmitted data over a set bandwidth in a specified system. VoLTE offers enhanced spectral efficiency, in comparison to the conventional circuit-switched voice, that is boosting the implementation VoLTE services around the world. Spectral efficiency is made better in VoLTE via improvements such as dropping the usage control channels, decreasing the consumed bandwidth, and advancing the uplink coverage.
Rapid call setup time
The duration needed for VoLTE call setup is almost double the time required by the present 3G circuit switched fallback. Furthermore, the VoLTE voice service’s quality of call surpasses the 3G circuit switched voice and HD voice service of Skype. Additionally, the VoLTE call setup decreased the duration by 2–4 sec on the carrier networks. Thus, it will further assist to fuel the market for VoLTE.
Rising requirement for mobile unified communications
There is a mounting order for cloud and mobile unified communications solutions from the mobile enterprises due to their rapid network speeds. Thus, the mobile network operators should accomplish this requirement by providing unified communication applications via LTE and give the end users an enhanced experience by spending in the improvements of LTE network. Taking into consideration the need of end users for unified communications, ventures select mobile operators to provide improved network capabilities. Hence, the effect of rising need for mobile unified communications is expected to grow significantly further propelling the VoLTE market growth in the near future.
