LONDON, May 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
LTE has been a driver for major investment for wireless carriers. However, much of the investment is in core network infrastructure that will be used for more than just raw data services. Voice over LTE (VoLTE) represents an opportunity for wireless carriers to improve their competitive position marginally at first, but much more longer term, assuming they properly execute VAS applications such as RCS and open up their APIs.
The incumbent carriers must deal with the threat of these "dial around" voice over wireless IP (or VoIP over Wireless OTT) providers by offering their own "dialable" VoIP. In addition to solving the problems of deploying "diable" VoIP via VoLTE, the incumbent network operators must offer VAS applications and capabilities such as the presence-enabled Dynamic Address Book.
With modest beginnings, there were approximately 12 million VoLTE subscribers worldwide in 2013, mostly in South Korea. We expect this to change as the pace of VoLTE deployments, and more importantly, adoption rates in countries/networks already deployed, grows dramatically on a global basis.
This research assesses the market drivers and outlook for VoLTE as well as carrier opportunities and challenges. The report forecasts VoLTE growth and includes insights, conclusions and recommendations for network operators including strategies for VAS application deployment and integration with various telecom assets via Telecom APIs.
