It's all about Voice

So why has the industry accepted IMS so suddenly?

Well, it's primarily due to the fact that IMS has been adopted by the VoLTE initiative as the call session engine for voice in LTE networks.

While early LTE deployments are more about bandwidth and data connectivity, voice will continue to be a key service within the service provider domain. After all, people won't stop talking to each other. So, you need a robust architecture that will support millions of concurrent voice and multi media sessions. With consistent quality, all the time. But, of course, that leaves a big question unanswered: it may be voice that has finally cemented the position of IMS within the industry (although the lack of credible alternatives has something to do with it as well), but can voice continue to be a revenue generator for carriers?

Since voice revenues continue to decline, that's a very big question.

  • Layer upon layer: why re-using existing infrastructure just makes so much fibre sense

    For thousands of years, and probably from not long after the end of the last Ice Age 12,000 years ago, a major track connected the Celts in the far South with their cousins in the North. By the time of the Roman Conquest, the British were still using this route; recognising its utility, legionnaires soon paved it and called it Ermine Street, using it to connect their capital, Londinium, with their far-off bases in Lincoln (Lindum Colonia) and York (Eboracum). Later, the English called it the Old North Road; and our A1 largely follows the same route. That’s continuity in infrastructure for you.

  • Italy’s trying to go back to the future to get universal broadband. We don’t think it’ll work

    One broadband operatore to rule them all? Rome’s attempt to build a national broadband service in a day. Reports on possible Italian state intervention raises less than comfortable memories of Blunders down Under and under-priced manifesto offers.
