Telenor Denmark has selected Nokia Networks for the implementation of Voice over LTE (VoLTE) solution, following the successful completion of the first voice calls over commercial LTE in the operator’s live network. The VoLTE service, which allows high-definition (HD) voice calls, faster call setup times and better handovers is expected to provide richer communication services and high-definition voice calls with higher quality than regular voice applications.The VoLTE technology will benefit the operator by lowering the overall data consumption and signaling load compared to over-the-top voice applications, said Nokia.
According to Nokia Networks, it will implement and integrate its IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS), Open TAS (Telecommunications Application Server), Home Subscriber Server (HSS) and Border gateway (Open BGW) to enable VoLTE services. In addition, Nokia NetAct network management system (OSS) will be used to monitor, manage and optimize Telenor networks to ensure optimal interworking with the current network
The technology upgrade will also see Telenor Denmark upgrading to consolidate its DSL VoIP offering on the same IMS platform, providing operational efficiency and preparing for future voice services.
