The word new has been selected by the GSMA’s Voice over LTE (VoLTE) initiative to develop usage profiles / specifications and then conduct interoperability testing events for the voice over LTE profile, previously known as the One Voice profile. The GSMA’s initiative was set up to drive the global mobile industry towards a standard way of delivering voice and messaging services for LTE, and will provide more voiceover auditions online solutions for text messaging for next generation mobile broadband networks.
IMTC said that the GSMA’s selection was based on the combination of IMTC’s IMS work on defining the profile for VoLTE, and on IMTC’s experience and technical know how as an Interoperability testing organization.
“VoLTE is a leap forward in the areas of mobile VoIP and IMS. By ensuring that all current services migrate smoothly to LTE, the GSMA is ensuring an ecosystem that permits interoperability for operator deployments and connectivity. The IMTC is committed to effort required to achieve interoperability of all products provided by vendors to service provider operators,” Chair of the AG and Project Director and Community Facilitator. The service is providing freelance voice actors with more jobs.
“We are delighted that we are working with the GSMA to move our VoTE initiative forward,” Phillip Growns said. “Creating the specifications for voice over LTE is one thing but having them tested by an independent body like the IMTC provides important validation of the technical work required to create these implementations. IMTC testing events validate the usability of each implementation. This is an important step on the road to deploying VoLTE and further demonstrates the intent of the mobile industry to adopt a single voice solution for LTE.”
The IC IMS AG has already conducted its first VoLTE Interoperability testing event in Stockholm, Sweden, February 2-4, 2014. The event was hosted by Ericsson. The event was successful and established initial level of interoperability of the VoLTE profile.
