9-1-1...it’s the call that most people just expect to work, no matter what—every single time. Many would say it’s the most important phone call a person can ever make. While our society has become increasingly nomadic through mobile and IP technologies, nothing has changed about consumers’ expectations for 9-1-1 service.
A new Carrier ENUM model from TNS is promising to help carriers reduce call setup times, resolve route lookup queries faster and relieve the headache associated with complex data management processes.
TNS’ Shared Registry Carrier ENUM is a hybrid solution that combines the benefits of a shared multi-tenant registry, private ENUM and a full national number portability database. Participating operators can resolve queries quicker within one shared registry rather than using the standard GSMA distributed model that reaches out to the National Root ENUM service.
Transition Networks, Inc., a leading provider of innovative, high-value data network integration solutions, today announced it will showcase three new products at the ISC West trade show, happening April 6-8, 2016 at the Sands Expo in Las Vegas.
At its booth (#32107), the company will showcase its IP over 2-Wire Ethernet Extender, its IP/PoE+ over COAX Ethernet Extender, and 16-Port Managed PoE+ Switch, all designed to reduce costs associated with implementing or upgrading security networks.
There are many reasons for justifying Voice over LTE (VoLTE) beyond the obvious efficiencies for voice services. Some of the business case drivers include:
Arguably, the biggest driver is simply “Dialable VoIP”.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Verizon Communications and AT&T Inc expect to be able to transmit wireless voice calls between the two carriers over high-speed data networks by 2015, the companies said on Monday.
The technology is expected to improve the quality of calls and allow for video calling and voicemail.
The calls would be transmitted using a technology known as Voice over LTE, which repackages voice calls as data and transmits them over carriers' high-speed data networks.
More people than ever are using 4G-LTE networks, and this influx of smart devices, machines and appliances connected to the Internet will cause extra traffic, and strain the capabilities that draw consumers to a new network in the first place.
By 2017, according to a recent report by Pyramid Research, the number of LTE subscriptions worldwide will reach 802.2 million, a 72% CAGR over 2012 levels, growing to almost 10 percent of global mobile subscribers.
WhatsApp, the world's biggest mobile messaging service, is to add a voice call service for its 450 million customers, laying down a new challenge to telecom network operators just days after it was bought by Facebook for $19 billion.
Chief Executive Jan Koum said his aim was for WhatsApp users to be able to make calls by the second quarter, just as they can now text messages, in a bid to expand the service's appeal to help it hit a billion users.
Chinese equipment vendor ZTE has said it is helping China Mobile to deploy voice over LTE (VoLTE) services on its network in Guangzhou in what it calls an important step to a wider national rollout.
The company says its technology ensures that users do not experience any disruption when switching between 3G and 4G networks for voice calls.
It is using a system known as Single Radio Voice Call Continuity (eSRVCC) to allow seamless handovers between the two network standards.
UK operator EE says it will invest £275 million ($450 million) in improving the quality and reliability of mobile calls on its 2G and 3G networks in 2014.
The funds will also be used to conduct trials of new voice technologies such as voice over LTE (VoLTE) and voice over WiFi.
Europe's second highest court upheld a decision on Wednesday by European Union regulators clearing Microsoft's $8.5 billion takeover of Skype in 2011, rejecting a challenge by the world's top network equipment maker Cisco Systems Inc.
At a hearing in May, Cisco (San Jose, CA, USA) argued that Microsoft's (Seattle, WA, USA) acquisition of the Internet video and voice messaging company created a monopoly and that the European Commission was wrong to approve the deal without demanding concessions from Microsoft.
Historically, network infrastructure is the most expensive component in a mobile operator's overall CAPEX, which holds true in China, the biggest and fastest growing 4G market in the world.
