Telefonica Peru and ZTE have jointly deployed the first commercial Fixed-Mobile Convergence(FMC) IP Multimedia(IMS) network to support Voice-over LTE(VoLTE) services. The deployment helps the operator to offer VoLTE services for both mobile and landline users, enabling it to become the first commercial VoLTE & FMC network in the country and also in Latin America.
According to ZTE, the IMS solution provides a very rich set of converged voice services in combination with the services already provided by the existing legacy network. Telefonica Peru’s IMS network fully replicates voice call and the supplementary services already available in the legacy circuit switched (CS) network, together with value added services such as call me now(CMN), voice mail service (VMS), virtual private network (VPN), missed call alert(MCA), ring back tone(RBT), call collect(CC) and TUGO.
The solution also enables VoLTE high definition(HD) voice and video calls. ZTE claims that it delivered the project in less than 10 months, in a multi-vendor environment and supporting full network redundancy.
