Vodafone Australia eyes VoLTE rollout

Vodafone Hutchison Australia has tapped up Ericsson for a network overhaul that will see the operator capable of delivering VoLTE services as it seeks to optimise its network capabilities through virtualization.

Over the period of the five year agreement, Ericsson will fully virtualize Vodafone’s core network, incorporating Ericsson’s IP Multimedia Subsystem and Evolved Packet Core as well as policy control, network robustness, performance and resiliency.

There have been a whole raft of operator VoLTE announcements of late as carriers seek to take voice off the legacy circuit switched network in order to simplify and improve their network capabilities as well as offer customers high definition voice services at the same time as high speed data.

The 9th annual LTE Asia conference is taking place on the 23rd-25th September 2014 at the Marina Bay Sands, Singapore. Click here to download a brochure for the event.
