VoLTE roaming implementation
“We have the ambition to be a leader when developing new technology. That’s why I’m happy to have enabled the first 4G voice roaming country agreement to reap important lessons for our deployment of VoLTE roaming “Operators around the world are expected to shut down 3G within the foreseeable future, so it is crucial that we have a good alternative ready,” says Peter Ditlev Nødbak, development director at Telenor.
With roaming on 4G speech, customers get the same quality and benefits as when talking over 4G at home, which is, among other things, shorter call time, and the ability to retrieve data much faster during a call.
Currently, selected Sony, Nokia and Samsung mobile phones support roaming on 4G speech – further deployment occurs as manufacturers send updated operator settings to customers, so their mobile phones support the technology.
