Status of global VoLTE implementations
Ali.Saghaeian [at] gmail.com
Some of VoLTE Launch Challenges
VoLTE client & chipset integration
Addressing limitations in technology
Coverage gaps between legacy & LTE
Vendor product gaps – feature requests
Customer Experience
Single number routing is a major issue
Standards do not define how service synchronization between CS and IMS works
Avoids duplicated charging on users IN, SRVCC calls
Biggest challenge with ensuring user experience!!
Seamless vs. new and improved
Service Parity
Option 1: Re-invest capital to re-do features on new platform
Option 2: Start fresh with new capabilities
Options 3: Only keep the popular services, not all CS services
Ali.Saghaeian [at] gmail.com
Beyond VoLTE: Customer Centric Service
Innovations
 Revive Lost Business Sources
 Create New Revenue Streams
Address Daily Needs of Modern Connected Lives
Enable Distinct Persona & Context for Conversations
Solve Very Specific Communication Challenges Innovate Like OTTs to Establish Operators as Primary CSP

International VoLTE market drivers for MNOs
• New roaming opportunities for CDMA MNOs
• Expands rich voice service to international calls
• Simplifies international interconnect for VoLTE calls
Ovum survey and whitepaper (Feb 2015)
• 50% of MNOs to deploy international VoLTE within 6 to 12 months of
domestic

VoLTE vs OTT Voice Call
• VoLTE improves service quality of existing voice calls and differs from OTT
voice calls by its guaranteed QoS (quality of service)
・Basic services provided by carriers that must follow telecom regulations
・Various players offer voice call services based on internet technology (VoIP)
・No regulation and quality is NOT guaranteed
OTT Voice Call
Voice Call by Carrier(VoLTE) <VoIP Apps>
Low Cost with Wi-Fi or Cellular Unlimited Data Plan
No Quality Guarantee
<3G/4G Voice Call>
Connectivity / Continuity(QoS)
Telephone Number
Emergency Call
Traffic Control, Prioritized Call
Interconnectivity

VoWiFi Business Drivers
• New Services - Compete against the main OTT VoIP and video
competitor (Skype) – enhanced user experience / loyalty /
Incremental revenue
• Offer Indonesian or anyone outside Indonesia a service to call back
to Indonesia without incurring Roaming Charge
Offer Indonesian subscribers a service to receive calls on the
mobile number without incurring Roaming Charge
Coverage & Network Offload - Better user experience and
macro network offload (70% of mobile usage is inside
office/home) – lower churn and cost
• Easy Billing - A challenge in many Asian countries with low use
of online payments and credit cards - faster revenue realization
• Brand Dilution - Avoid being perceived as a “dumb pipe”
provider - attach users to innovative services and keep the
brand fresh
• Network Transformation - Prepare the organization to more
easily evolve to IMS based HSPA+, VoLTE and RCS services – 4G
network readiness

Consumer Use Cases for VoWiFi
‘Roaming CS Avoidance’
Improved Service Coverage
‘Roam Like Home’
Roaming for Non-Subscribers When roaming, use WiFi for calls
 WiFi App detects handset is roaming
 Calls are always placed using WiFi
 Usage is ‘home rated’ based on home plan Consumer benefits from local rates. Home operator benefits because it gains revenues from calls which otherwise would have been made on a competitors service or not made at all and avoidance of bill shock.
Use roaming 3G/4G data plan for VoIP calls
 Roaming Data may be lower cost than Roaming Data
 Total data consumption of a VoIP call is low
 Its lower cost to make a VoIP call over 3G than CS
 When roaming app uses 3G/4G data network as VoIP call. Consumers benefit by avoiding costly Circuit Switched calls
Switch to WiFi in poor 2G/3G coverage
 Users are surrounded by multiple network bearers
 WiFi App selects WiFi bearer when its available and best choice.
 Usage is still ‘rated’ based on users plan. Consumer benefits from extended coverage and quality. Operator benefits from revenues from calls which otherwise would have not been made and avoidance of bill shock.
Visiting users buy package of local ‘voip’ minutes
 Users download ‘app’ when arriving in new network
 Calls are routed as VoWiFi or VoIPo3G/4G
 Rated using a local pre-paid plan rather than roaming Consumer benefits from local rates. Roaming operator benefits from increasing local termination revenues which might have otherwise been avoided. Home Operator benefits from lack of bill shock.,

What Operators are Saying about VoLTE and
VoWiFi
Clear conversations and
reduced background
noise so you feel like
you’re right next to each
other. Make and receive
high-definition voice
calls and enjoy:
• Crisp call quality
• Less background noise
• Simultaneous voice
and data at 4G LTE
speeds
May 23, 2014
VoLTE is the next
major advancement in
LTE; customer benefits
include faster call
setup times (almost
twice as fast) and HD
Voice.
Launching VoLTE is
our first step toward a
host of rich
communication
services and additional
innovations around Wi-
Fi calling.
May 22, 2014
We believe the
combination of this
robust network along
with the new features
is going to create a
new, meaningful
experience for our
customers for their
calling needs.
HD Voice and video
calling would be the
two main services
initially offered through
VoLTE technology.
May 20, 2014
EE has announced
plans to launch VoLTE,
with a VoWiFi service…
both promise
improvements in
quality-of-service over
traditional circuitswitched
calls.
Both services are
enabled via an IMS
capability in EE’s
network.

Mobile Voice Minutes of Use—VoWiFi, VoLTE,
and VoIP
Note: VoLTE and VoIP are mobile-specific; VoWiFi could be from any Wi-Fi connection. Circuit-switched
mobile voice is excluded from the mix.

Ali.Saghaeian [at] gmail.com
  • 13. VoWiFi Business Drivers • New Services - Compete against the main OTT VoIP and video competitor (Skype) – enhanced user experience / loyalty / Incremental revenue • Offer Indonesian or anyone outside Indonesia a service to call back to Indonesia without incurring Roaming Charge Offer Indonesian subscribers a service to receive calls on the mobile number without incurring Roaming Charge Coverage & Network Offload - Better user experience and macro network offload (70% of mobile usage is inside office/home) – lower churn and cost • Easy Billing - A challenge in many Asian countries with low use of online payments and credit cards - faster revenue realization • Brand Dilution - Avoid being perceived as a “dumb pipe” provider - attach users to innovative services and keep the brand fresh • Network Transformation - Prepare the organization to more easily evolve to IMS based HSPA+, VoLTE and RCS services – 4G network readiness Ali.Saghaeian [at] gmail.com
  • 14. Consumer Use Cases for VoWiFi ‘Roaming CS Avoidance’ Improved Service Coverage ‘Roam Like Home’ Roaming for Non-Subscribers When roaming, use WiFi for calls  WiFi App detects handset is roaming  Calls are always placed using WiFi  Usage is ‘home rated’ based on home plan Consumer benefits from local rates. Home operator benefits because it gains revenues from calls which otherwise would have been made on a competitors service or not made at all and avoidance of bill shock. Use roaming 3G/4G data plan for VoIP calls  Roaming Data may be lower cost than Roaming Data  Total data consumption of a VoIP call is low  Its lower cost to make a VoIP call over 3G than CS  When roaming app uses 3G/4G data network as VoIP call. Consumers benefit by avoiding costly Circuit Switched calls Switch to WiFi in poor 2G/3G coverage  Users are surrounded by multiple network bearers  WiFi App selects WiFi bearer when its available and best choice.  Usage is still ‘rated’ based on users plan. Consumer benefits from extended coverage and quality. Operator benefits from revenues from calls which otherwise would have not been made and avoidance of bill shock. Visiting users buy package of local ‘voip’ minutes  Users download ‘app’ when arriving in new network  Calls are routed as VoWiFi or VoIPo3G/4G  Rated using a local pre-paid plan rather than roaming Consumer benefits from local rates. Roaming operator benefits from increasing local termination revenues which might have otherwise been avoided. Home Operator benefits from lack of bill shock., Ali.Saghaeian [at] gmail.com
  • 15. What Operators are Saying about VoLTE and VoWiFi Clear conversations and reduced background noise so you feel like you’re right next to each other. Make and receive high-definition voice calls and enjoy: • Crisp call quality • Less background noise • Simultaneous voice and data at 4G LTE speeds May 23, 2014 VoLTE is the next major advancement in LTE; customer benefits include faster call setup times (almost twice as fast) and HD Voice. Launching VoLTE is our first step toward a host of rich communication services and additional innovations around Wi- Fi calling. May 22, 2014 We believe the combination of this robust network along with the new features is going to create a new, meaningful experience for our customers for their calling needs. HD Voice and video calling would be the two main services initially offered through VoLTE technology. May 20, 2014 EE has announced plans to launch VoLTE, with a VoWiFi service… both promise improvements in quality-of-service over traditional circuitswitched calls. Both services are enabled via an IMS capability in EE’s network. June 20, 2014 Ali.Saghaeian [at] gmail.com
