Amdocs launches VoLTE policy solution

08 April 2014 | Sophie Donoghue


Customer experience solutions vendor Amdocs has launched a policy control solution for Voice over LTE (VoLTE).

Amdocs’ VoLTE Controller, which is said to be the industry’s first VoLTE policy control solution, is designed to help operators compete against Over-The-Top (OTT) players.

The solution aims to allow a high-quality and differentiated VoLTE experience by supporting IP voice requirements such as emergency call prioritisation, voice roaming and voice call reliability with session geo-redundancy, and differentiated IP voice services.

“Landline services have set the bar for voice, and service providers are challenged to meet and exceed those expectations with VoLTE,” said Rebecca Prudhomme, VP of product and solutions marketing at Amdocs.

“This solution extends policy control for VoLTE with its extensive support for emergency call services, voice roaming and other critical voice service attributes; having a specialised PCRF solution, designed with the rigours of VoLTE in mind, is vital for operators seeking to differentiate next-generation voice services over LTE,” she added.

In February, Amdocs launched its self-optimising networks (SON) solution, designed to automate the optimisation of radio access networks (RANs).
