In the excitement of Mobile World Congress last week, you may have missed the announcement that VoLGA testing conducted with Deutsche Telekom’s next generation mobile test network using LTE technology and a VoLGA solution from Kineto, delivers call-setup times up to 65 percent faster than alternative LTE voice technologies, such as CS Fallback. In the testing, VoLGA outperformed 3G network call-setup times by nearly 40 percent.
Visitors to the Deutsche Telekom and Kineto stands at MWC were given a real-life opportunity to make VoLGA calls, and the buzz was overwhelmingly positive.
"We were confident that VoLGA would deliver a superior user experience, and now we have the test results to prove it," said Franz Seiser, head of core network technology at Deutsche Telekom. "Customers who subscribe to next generation network services will expect performance to exceed today’s technologies, and it’s clear VoLGA can meet those expectations."
Patrick Tao, Kineto's vice president of technology, added:"VoLGA is very focused on delivering a better user experience than 3G. Our testing has already shownquantitative improvements over CS Fallback in the areas of faster call-setup times, lower dropped call rates, and the ability to talk and surf the Internet at the same time."
