With over 260 live LTE networks today and another 87 expected to go live this year (GSM Association, 2014), LTE will soon become the dominant technology in many countries. As operators focus on building networks that can handle rich content, where does that leave consumers who simply want to use their devices to talk? VoLTE has been touted as the operators’ technology of choice to enable faster connections, HD voice, and to integrate with RCS to maintain customer engagement and revenue.
However, only 40 operators—11% of live networks by the end of 2014—are either currently committed to or are trialing or deploying VoLTE. So what’s holding operators back? VoLTE is not without its challenges: the RAN, IMS, QoS, policy control, and signaling management are just a few.
