VoLTE - From Delay to Deploy

  1. 1. VoLTE – from Delay to Deploy IMS World Forum April 29, 2014 Simon Miles Director of Field Engineering, EMEA simon.miles@radisys.com
  2. 2. Topics  Industry Hesitancy around VoLTE…. Why?  Motivations for deploying VoLTE  Considerations for the Media Resource Function MRF in a VoLTE Deployment
  3. 3. 3Radisys Corporation Confidential Industry Hesitancy to deploy IMS for VoLTE Why? Perceptions against VoLTE investments Reality Voice is a flat/declining revenue stream • Still the largest contributor to mobile operator revenues and profitability Use CSFB for voice services on LTE 3G networks work fine for voice • Data falls back to 3G speeds as well. • VoLTE sounds better. • Early VoLTE deployments prove operators can charge premium and increase ARPU. VoLTE handsets not ready, limited selection, poor battery life • 2H14 will see increasing variety of VoLTE devices with improved battery life IMS systems, and associated integration, is costly and complex • Myopic focus on IMS investment only, limits understanding of broader business case benefits…

  5. 5. 5Radisys Corporation Confidential VoLTE forcasted to grow
  6. 6. 6Radisys Corporation Confidential Is an IMS expensive? Compared to 4G spectrum – No! Motivation for the CFO: A VoLTE deployment can reduce or defer new 4G spectrum purchases, easily justifying an IMS investment for VoLTE
  7. 7. Summary: Motivations to Deploy VoLTE  Voice still the “Killer App”  Single IP network  Spectrum Refarming  Revenue Upside beyond VoLTE services  Better call quality  Lower call setup times
  8. 8. 8Radisys Corporation Confidential So at this point, hopefully you might be thinking… “Investing in an IMS to deploy VoLTE is starting to make more business sense.” Considerations for IP Media Processing (MRF) in an IMS deployment
