As the demand for IP multimedia communications services grow, mobile operators are evolving their networks to enable Voice Over LTE (VoLTE) services. Many operators have already launched VoLTE, and the next wave of investments has already started. To create service differentiation and drive new revenues, service providers are challenged to deliver agile, secured and premium quality, voice and video communication experience over IP. GENBAND Solutions for VoLTE help mobile operators with these goals.
GENBAND’s Advanced Media Software (AMS) solution is optimally suited for operators who are not only seeking the benefits of a flexible, highly scalable, and virtualized media processing solution, but one that also offers high capacity media session handling with clustered and shared transcoding. Furthermore, with GENBAND IMS Media Resource Function (MRF) solutions we offer a centralized and distributed transcoding platform for networks, allowing transcoding resources to be efficiently sized and scaled according to network needs.
While current HD Voice implementations using Wide Band AMR (WB-AMR) codec on mobile networks was a huge step towards that goal, the next generation IP communication infrastructure is transitioning to offer enhanced high definition quality voice services, such as EVS based on 3GPP Release 12 with lower bandwidth and capacity requirements. GENBAND’s EVS Transcoding solution promises to revolutionize the voice communication experience with unrivaled quality, reduce cost of service, and open up doors for new service opportunities to mobile operators.
GENBAND NFV-based solutions offer the ability to do this transcoding, interconnect, and roaming services in a distributed and secure manner, at efficient scale and with elasticity from the telco cloud. At the same time, NFV-based transcoding solutions with virtual network functions like SBC, media and call control elements at the edge of the networks mitigate challenges such as security threats, signaling and media interoperability, and support new VoLTE roaming architectures.
GENBAND brings decades of global experience in enabling secure and scalable IP-IP and TDM-IP, voice and multimedia interconnect between mobile and fixed IP networks. GENBAND’s Intelligent IP Interconnect & Roaming solutions and market leading carrier grade Session Border Controllers, Call Controllers, Media Gateways and Session Routers are deployed to ensure secure, simple, and scalable multimedia session connectivity and interworking across diverse IMS and non IMS networks.
