CPE with VoLTE
VoLTE is trend, Xiamen Honlly announced the Xiamen Honlly CPE will support VoLTE since last year, till now Xiamen Honlly CPE have passed the test of many operators,and support some Operators commercial deploying CPE with VoLTE, and it’s just begin,as there are more and more Operator are investing in VoLTE all over the world.

106 LTE networks are VoLTE capable
36 VoLTE networks are in deployment
25VoLTE networks are planned or are testing
Voice over Long-Term Evolution(VoLTE) is a standard for high-speed wireless communication for mobile phones and data terminals. It is based on the IP Multimedia Subsystem(IMS) network,with specific profiles for control and media planes of voice service on LTE defined by GSMA in PRK IR.92. This approach results in the voice service(control and media planes) being delivered as data flows within the LTE data bearer. This means that there is no dependency on(or ultimately,requirement for) the legacy circuit-switched voice network to be maintained.VoLTE has up to three times more voice and data capacity than 3G UMTS and up to six times more than 2G GSM. Furthermore,it frees up bandwidth because VoLTE’s packets headers are smaller than those of unoptimized VoIP/LTE.
