Alcatel-Lucent has announced that it has globally shipped more than 125 mn Voice-over IP subscriber licenses as service providers meet demands for ultra-broadband access to converged voice, video, data, and new applications.
Voice-over-LTE (VoLTE) subscriber licenses comprised the bulk of Alcatel-Lucent's shipments, with more than 88 mn licenses issued.
"With the deployment of VoLTE, operators will also be able to reduce operational costs by moving to an all IP network, free up precious spectrum to meet increasing demand for mobile broadband, and combine HD voice, video conferencing and data with the lightning speed of 4G LTE networks," the company mentioned in its statement.
"NAR operators will lead the deployment of VoLTE, but it is essential to mobile innovation around the globe," said Andrew McDonald, President, IP Platforms, Alcatel-Lucent.
Alcatel-Lucent will demonstrate the value of its VoLTE Solution at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.
