What Is VoLTE- Benefits Of VoLTE Over Traditional Technology

Latest Blog - Sun, 05/03/2015 - 02:40
What Is VoLTE VoLTE is stand for Voice Over Long Term Evolution. VOLTE transmit call over the internet Instead of using voice technology to route call like CDMA or GSM call is routed as voice over internet protocol(VOIP) through service like Vonage and Skype. The main difference between VoLTE and traditional method based on transmitting the call procedure like traditionally deliver the call over the standard Internet Protocol,but through VoLTE calls are delivered over a mobile 4G LTE broadband network. To take the advantages of this technology you must consider two things. First you need a smart phone which support 4G LTE protocol. Second you need to select those network carrier which support VoLTE technology. Most of the service provider companies in USA like AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon are committed to provide the VoLTE. VoLTE become the no.1 choice of the service provider carrier because VoLTE permit service provider to improve internal operations and voice data application is more efficiently as compare to old voice connection technology. Lets we see some of the benefits of Voice Over Long Term Evolution(VoLTE) as compare to traditional technology. HD Voice The biggest benefit of using VoLTE is provide high definition quality voice. This HD voice provide good quality of voice delivery which is more richer and warmer through VoLTE as compare to 2G and 3G.Voice which transfer through traditional network use 8kbps codec while voice transmit through VoLTE is use 13kbps. Low Latency Call connecting through VoLTE is much faster as compare to traditional technology like GSM or CDMA calls. Calls transmit through VoLTE is low latency rate therefor call connect within 1 to 2 seconds is much faster as campare to old technology which take 3 to 4 or more seconds. we can say that connecting speed of VoLTE is double versus old circuit switched technology. Improve Battery Life According to Sprint conducting test report VoLTE services provide much improved battery life compared with old technology. Sprint conducted the text in Dallas for measuring and quantifying the impact on battery life of call which conducted on CDMA,VoIP call using the Skype and 4G LTE networks. Following result they found Results showed a 35 percent lower current drain for VoLTE calls, as well as an 18 percent lower current drain for CDMA calls, compared with the first generation. Calls made over the LTE network using Skype’s over-the-top VoIP application resulted in approximately one-third less current drain. Battery life on the latest VoLTE-capable device now compares favorably to that of previous-generation devices when using CDMA voice. Rich Communications Services VoLTE provide another benefit to consumer in term of Rich Communication Services. RCS(Rich Communication Services) provide the feature of file transferring,language translation, voicemail,video calling and instant messaging. Share

Difference Between Asterisk and OpenSIPS

It is responsible for signaling and for media transmission. It is also used to handle services such like protocol translation(SIP,IAX2),codec translation(uLaw,G.729a),Interactive Voice Response(IVR), voicemail and call distribution TTS, and voice recognition etc. Onthe other hand architecture of structure of OpenSIPS is very simple as compare to Asterisk. OpenSIPS is a SIP Proxy is only deal with signaling. Connectivity Difference Asterisk provide many telephony interface cards to connect the PSTN such like DAHDI. Installation and configuration of telephony card in Asterisk is very easy. Onthe other hand you cannot install telephony card in OpenSIPS. OpenSIPS required external SIP gateway to connect the PSTN. Load Balancing Difference By using Asterisk load balance can be configure via callid,username and uri and also handel failover. Unique feature of OpenSIPS is that it use hashing algorithms for load balancing and can be configured to load balance by the username, ruri, callid. OpenSIPS failover aware can make for a very complementary part of an Asterisk solution. Access Difference Asterisk provide low level access to protocol and make alert the header signal. Astersik provide the only access to IAX protocol and transfer signal in same port and in same packet. OpenSIPS like asterisk provide the low level access to protocol and make alter the header signal. But in OpenSIPS it is possible translate two incompatible version of sip and directly handle the SIP response,header and request. No Integration Difference Both Asterisk and OpenSIPS have built-in integration with Radius, LDAP, and Diameter. Media Services Difference Asterisk is capable to provide media related services like voicemail, voice recognition, IVR and TTS etc. OpenSIP on the other hand cannot provide media related services like voicemail,voice recognition, IVR and TTS etc. Share
