Voice Over LTE Spec Completed by VoLGA Forum
Today the VoLGA (Voice over LTE via Generic Acces) Forum released a completed set of technical specifications for Voice over Long Term Evolution. Having this specification is an important step, as it will allow mobile network operators to offer voice and SMS services on LTE networks. Heretofore, LTE only supported data services, which left operators seeking out a solution to provide voice services. Voice over LTE gives them that opportunity at little extra cost. The VoLGA Forum has 21 members, including network companies such as HTC, LG, Motorola, Samsung, ZTE, and Deutsch Telekom, Alcatel-Lucent and Nortel. The 3GPP is working on a competing standard, called CSFB, or Circuit Switched Fallback. CSFB would allow devices to revert to GSM or UMTS for incoming and outgoing voice calls.
Isn't voice over LTE kinda the same as. . .
