  27. 27. Slide 27 What About Voice? 1. Voice over IP (over IMS) over LTE • Requires a full-scale LTE (& IMS) network in place for universal service • SR-VCC is required for non LTE coverage areas 2. Voice over LTE via Generic Access (VoLGA) • Supported by T-Mobile • Simpler method but little traction 3. CS Fallback • Voice service delivered from “legacy” CS networks 4. OTT Service (i.e., Skype) • Operator is bypassed
  28. 28. Slide 28 Summary 1. LTE brings Fast, Efficient & Intelligent Devices • Enhanced VAS (2.0) deployment from inside-out • RCS, mobile video services, cloud services, UCS 2. Robust Platform for VAS 2.0 • Standard protocols, framework & DPI technology • PCRF, eNodeB, Offload + Shaper enable “smart-pipe” 3. Accelerated Time-to-Revenue • Integrated framework, software and knowledge base • App store, cloud services bring new monetization opportunities
