Global Indian firm offers service providers opportunities for enhanced revenues with this new capability

The Indian global telecommunications firm Tata Communications  has announced its network readiness to supply Voice over LTE (VoLTE) calling to its community of IPX -connected  service providers.

A press statement by the Mumbai-based telecommunications firm said such capability would enable mobile network operators to operate on the basis of an all-IP infrastructure.

It would likewise enable them to deliver to customers a high quality voice experience through HD voice.

Enhanced Revenue Streams

This in turn would enable mobile operators to enhance their capture of revenue streams from the market for VoLTE services combined with Over the Top (OTT) VoIP which analysts estimate to become a US $16  billion business by 2017.

Other capabilities offered by Tata Communications' network readiness include HD Voice support and interoperability between fixed and mobile networks, SIP IMS support.

As a result, VoLTE handsets will be able to connect to any HD-enabled user, including users with fixed handsets.

The press statement pointed out that among enhanced revenue streams VoLTE offers are those in high margin roaming scenarios and international calling.
