Vodafone’s commercial cloud-based VoLTE launch in Italy to be powered by Nokia Networks
Vodafone Italy, a fully-owned subsidiary of the Vodafone Group plc, has selected Nokia Networks to introduce commercial Voice over LTE (VoLTE) services on its network. Under the 5-year contract, Nokia Networks will implement its multifunctional Telecommunications Application Server (TAS) in a virtual, cloud-based environment to improve service agility and optimize network resource utilization for Vodafone Italy.
As a next-generation technology, VoLTE delivers multiple benefits for operators and customers alike. These include high-definition (HD) voice quality, faster call set-up times with voice continuity, and optimized performance under load. The overall data consumption and signaling load is also lower compared to over-the-top voice applications.
