  16. 16. The Path to Revenue Growth  Large Investments in LTE Infrastructure • Investment Recovery Largely via Broadband Data Plans  But Revenues Need to Grow Beyond Data Plans • Supplement via VoLTE, RCS, Other Value Added Services • 4G/LTE Enables New Models for Video Services  VoLTE, RCS, Video, and other VAS driving need for IMS  Media Plane Processing in IMS driving need for MRF 16
  17. 17. VoLTE Use Cases Requiring MRF Most VoLTE / Video pt-to-pt calls do not need MRF • If both ends have same codec, then established call path doesn’t pass through MRF But many VoLTE / Video services do need MRF • Basic Network Services – Playing a network announcement (basic service) – Collecting digits with announcements (IVR) – IP-to-IP transcoding (e.g. AMR-WB <-> AMR-NB) • Revenue-Generating VAS services – Playing a ringback tone – Messaging (record and playback) – Conferencing – Branded advertising – And many more…. 17

  20. 20. MRF Characteristics in VoLTE End to End IP (No CS Domain Voice) • Increases and exposes network bandwidth variability from end terminals directly to MRF (i.e., no CS-IP MGW) Key Aspects of MRF in LTE and non-LTE Deployments • IMS-based All-IP voice and video (multiservice MRF) • Service continuity with legacy 2G/3G handsets (via IMS GWs) • High availability with low latency and jitter (media quality) • New services for increased revenues (app-independent MRF reuse) MRF: Essential Resource for VoLTE Supplementary Services • Network voice services (Ann, IVR, RBT) • Two-way or multi-party (conferencing) • Voice and Video quality for IP mobile environment • Media recording / Legal Intercept • Media transcoding / content adaptation 20
