Voice Over LTE: Market Analysis And Forecasts

DUBLIN, Ireland, March 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the " Voice over LTE: Market Analysis and Forecasts" report to their offering.

Understanding the technical, economic and competitive factors driving carriers to implement VoLTE within their 4G networks, and analysing the impact VoLTE will have on both circuit-switched and OTT (Over the Top) voice.

     (Logo: )

Carriers worldwide are seeking ways to improve the efficiency and capacity of their networks while minimizing costs and improving end-user experience. LTE has served this purpose well in terms of mobile broadband data access, but carriers are struggling to find solutions to fight declining revenues for voice services, the primary stream of revenue for most carriers. Voice over LTE (VoLTE) offers a potential solution. Not only does VoLTE offer unique advantages in lowering a carrier's voice infrastructure economics, but it also promises to improve voice quality, device battery life and user experience by allowing concurrent voice and data services over a single LTE radio interface. ARCchart forecasts that the number of devices supporting VoLTE will ramp significantly over the coming years, spurred by aggressive competition against OTT providers. By 2016, we expect a total installed base of over 74 million VoLTE-enabled handsets will be present in the market. However, the OTT mobile VoIP market will also continue to maintain healthy growth. Topics of coverage include: - Mobile voice over IP - The rise of OTT mobile voice - VoLTE business case - Operator commitments and vendor selection - Challenges to the VoLTE ecosystem - Factors driving VoLTE deployment - Technical problems addressed by VoLTE - Circuit-switched voice - VoLTE roadmap in the CDMA ecosystem - VoLTE roadmap in the GSM ecosystem - Market size and forecasts Answers and opinions are provided with respect to the following essential questions: - What are operators' attitudes towards VoLTE? - How does VoLTE help carriers strengthen their position with mobile gadgets like tablets? - How will VoLTE improve handset battery life? - Why is it more economical for carriers to add future voice capacity using VoLTE? - How many VoLTE enabled handsets will ship in the coming years? - When will revenue from circuit-switched voice peak? - How many VoLTE subscriptions will there be in 2016 and how will this compare to OTT mobile voice subscriptions? - What intermediary technologies can carriers leverage before full migration to VoLTE? - How does VoLTE help carriers defend against OTT voice services? - In which regions will VoLTE first gain traction?
