Top 10 E2E VoLTE deployment considerations

Huawei has compiled a list of the top-10 deployment considerations for VoLTE.

Cover Story

4G communications evolution

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.

Industry Focus

VoLTE can deliver real value

VoLTE promises superior user experience and spectrum utilization, thus increasing voice revenue and your customer base (by expanding into enterprise), while reducing CAPEX.


Changing communications, creating value

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.

Industry Focus

Optimize EPC to ensure VoLTE success

EPC optimization can help carriers better compete with OTT voice services.

Industry Focus

HKT: VoLTE Pioneer

HKT launched VoLTE via the world’s first eSRVCC-enabled deployment, thus creating a complete ecosystem from network device to terminal to chip.

Indusrty Perspectives

CloudIMS kicks off NFV for carrier networks

CloudIMS-based VoLTE has became a carrier priority, thanks to its performance, integration, and capacity. It is also a must for NFV.

Indusrty Perspectives

Huawei MSE: Smart pipes, monetized traffic

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

Monetize communication capabilities through CaaS

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

Solving the riddle of RCS

China Mobile and SKT solved the riddle of RCS by combining it with VoLTE into an “entrance + platform” model.


Next-generation SBC for VoLTE

A session border controller (SBC) is an essential VoLTE network element in terms of security, reliability, multimedia interconnection, and future evolution.


Evolution towards convergent signaling networks

Carriers need a convergent signaling network moving forward that supports both SS7 and Diameter.


Convergent user data for VoLTE

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.

Cutting Edge

Can WebRTC revolutionize real-time communication?

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.
