VoLTE uses IP packet-based network for voice call, it transmits voice into
to carry out transmission, which enables a richer telephony experience and
definition audio in combination with low power consumption.
According to GSA (Jan 2013), 61 mobile networks have launched HD voice
in 45 countries. And there is a strong business case for Mobile HD Voice.
Customers make more, or longer, call with HD Voice, and highly value the
service. HD Voice helps operators to clearly differentiate their offerings
enable high quality services to voice dependent business like call centers,
informationand emergency services..
