    Nokia Networks to provide VoLTE for Telenor Denmark


    Nokia Networks will provide VoLTE for Telenor Denmark after the operator carried out successful live trials using the vendor’s LTE-based voice solution.

    The vendor will supply and integrate its VoLTE-enabling IMS, Open TAS, Home Subscriber Server and Open Border Gateway technology into Telenor’s Denmark network. The vendor will also provide network planning and optimisation through its NetAct OSS, in addition to systems integration services.

    VoLTE allows for HD voice calls and has the advantage of faster setup times, better handovers and fewer dropped calls than 2G and 3G-based calling.

    Nokia said the new IMS-based network would allow Telenor Denmark to consolidate its existing VoIP offering on the same platform to maximise operational efficiency and help prepare it for future voice services.

    Telenor recently signed an IPX peering agreement with Telefónica to help with the integration of new interconnection services such as VoLTE.

    Kim Krogh Andersen, Network Director at Telenor, said: “We are committed to offer innovative, future-ready technologies and services that improve our customers’ satisfaction. The VoLTE tests performed with Nokia Networks demonstrate crystal clear voice quality.”

    Nokia claimed that roughly 10 percent of all LTE subscriptions would use VoLTE by 2016 as the technology became more mainstream.

    A study conducted on behalf of AT&T in August concluded that the technology outperformed both 3G circuit-switched voice calling and IP services such as Skype.

    Earlier in the year, research from Infonetics concluded that the number of VoLTE users would break through the 50 million mark during 2014.
