Secure Voice over LTE – S-VoLTE: How mobile enterprise communications can benefit from LTE networks
Paris, June 4th 2013 – ERCOM announced today that it has successfully passed its first secure call on a live LTE network in Paris, France. Thanks to more than 10 years’ experience in cryptography, ERCOM has enhanced its Cryptosmart technology to protect LTE/4G Smartphones. As LTE Networks are booming around the world, governments and corporations can now benefit from the advantages of high-speed LTE networks in a fully secure manner.
LTE/4G brings two major benefits to mobile users: (1) higher bandwidth (up to 100Mbps) and (2) reduced latency (down to 20ms). This combination creates a major enhancement for real-time applications such as secure voice. Thus, ERCOM has decided to enlarge the portfolio of Cryptosmart enabled Smartphones with the Samsung Galaxy S3 LTE. Compatibility with other LTE/4G smartphones will be launched in the near future.
According to Yannick Dupuch, Ercom CEO: “Secure Voice over LTE with Cryptosmart is crystal clear while complying to government security requirements; the sound experience is better than on a traditional GSM network. This opens the door to other highly secure applications such as secure push to talk, secure PMR over LTE for security authorities, secure wireless broadcast, etc.”
In the coming months, ERCOM will continue its LTE security strategy by ensuring interoperability with other Smartphones and tablets.
