CIO Charles Molapisi at MTN Nigeria discusses the Telco 2.0 upgrade process where enterprises and consumers enter the innovation equation.
Huawei has compiled a list of the top-10 deployment considerations for VoLTE.
Carrier development of VoLTE is usually a 4-step process, one that requires a great deal of engineering and re-engineering, and yet workwhile as VoLTE is a path to the future.
VoLTE promises superior user experience and spectrum utilization, thus increasing voice revenue and your customer base (by expanding into enterprise), while reducing CAPEX.
Carriers need an E2E solution that integrates network & equipment services. They also need to figure out how to profit from 4G evolution. Huawei offers both.
EPC optimization can help carriers better compete with OTT voice services.
HKT launched VoLTE via the world’s first eSRVCC-enabled deployment, thus creating a complete ecosystem from network device to terminal to chip.
CloudIMS-based VoLTE has became a carrier priority, thanks to its performance, integration, and capacity. It is also a must for NFV.
Huawei’s Multi-service Engine (MSE) features a first-of-its-kind, all-in-one architecture that eases deployment, improves user experience, and enables value-based pricing.
How to Operate
Communication as a service (CaaS) is what will enable carriers to open their capabilities to third parties so that they can create and share value together.
How to Operate
China Mobile and SKT solved the riddle of RCS by combining it with VoLTE into an “entrance + platform” model.
A session border controller (SBC) is an essential VoLTE network element in terms of security, reliability, multimedia interconnection, and future evolution.
Carriers need a convergent signaling network moving forward that supports both SS7 and Diameter.
The vast majority of mobile networks involve numerous technologies and forms of access, making integration of user data a must to ensure its consistency, improve user experience, simplify network structure, reduce OPEX, and boost operational efficiency, especially in the LTE/VoLTE era.
WebRTC’s impact is being felt throughout the industry, but it’s future is hard to predict, given the immature standards in place and the mad scramble taking place between vendors.
The METIS project will develop a brand new 5G system concept and lay the foundation for future mobile and wireless communication systems.
