Ixia releases ‘Validating VoLTE’

Ixia has published an industry-first book, “Validating VoLTE: A Definitive Guide to Successful Deployments,” providing a unique study of the major deployment challenges and a step-by-step process to help customers deliver superior VoLTE services.

VoLTE gives mobile operators the opportunity to deliver a new conversation experience by enabling enriched voice, enlivened video and intuitive messaging services. however, VoLTE will be one of the most complex technologies that mobile operators have ever had to deploy. The book is designed to help the mobile industry overcome those challenges in order to accelerate VoLTE deployments and ensure a high-quality and profitable VoLTE service.

With in-depth knowledge of the potential pitfalls faced by both equipment manufacturers and mobile operators in deploying VoLTE, “Validating VoLTE” provides the insights customers need to overcome challenges. The book focuses on multi-vendor collaboration, quality of service and network congeston.

First, there are many moving parts in a VoLTE network, and more often than not, networks are multivendor sourced, and operators must be confident that all the components used in the live network will work together seamlessly.

Second, VoLTE is not just voice services, it is the complex mix of voice, video and messaging services, and providing toll-grade voice quality comparable to or better than 3G is imperative to QoS. Getting the correct framework and design in place sets the stage for operators to offer differentiated services, enter into new pricing structures, and partner or compete with over-the-top (OTT) players without sacrificing QoS.

Third, in dense metro environments, wireless networks can be plagued with capacity constraints. If premium voice and video applications perform poorly, operators’ brands and reputations are put at risk.

Ixia’s insight and leadership extend to the VoLTE test solution, which delivers customers a comprehensive, flexible and powerful assessment of performance and enables operators to confidently deploy and operate world-class VoLTE services.

“Even with the fast rise of Web and data services in mobile networks, voice and SMS services still generate around 70 percent of total operator revenues globally. With these revenues at stake, LTE operators must have a path to provide high-quality, toll-grade voice services natively on LTE networks,” said Joseph Zeto, director, Product Marketing, Ixia.

“With a deep understanding of what is at stake, we created ‘Validating VoLTE’ to help guide our customers through the process of building, testing and delivering a stable VoLTE network,” added Zeto.
