Etisalat rolls out Voice-over-LTE service

posted on 11/07/2016: 1856 views



Etisalat announced on Sunday the launch of the UAE's first Voice-over-LTE service (VoLTE) allowing mobile customers, both pre-paid and post-paid, to use LTE for full voice and data services.

The service will bring about improvements in the quality of voice and video calls, and will provide customers a range of advantages including high-definition voice calls and many rich-media services.

At the time of the launch, the VoLTE service will be enabled on Samsung S6 and S6 Edge devices, but there are plans to roll it out to other devices soon.

The new VoLTE service is based on Single Radio Call Continuity (SRVCC). It will reduce call set-up time significantly as compared to the current call set-up time and will provide high quality HD voice over Etisalat's 4G LTE network.

It does not require users to download any application. Converged network infrastructure will also allow Etisalat to maximise network capabilities and speed up the deployment of many more LTE-based innovative services for its customers.

"Although internet-based chat apps and messengers have gained popularity in recent years, voice calls continue to matter most when people want real-time, interactive and instantly gratifying connection with their families, friends or colleagues,” said Saleh Al Abdouli, Etisalat's group chief executive officer. – Gulf News - http://gulfnews.com/business/sectors/telecoms/etisalat-rolls-out-voice-over-lte-service-1.1859980
