We ask the experts: How can exceptional QoE be achieved in VoLTE networks?

By: Jean Jones, Director, Wireless Marketing, Alcatel-Lucent

What does voice over LTE (VoLTE) offer your subscribers? Better voice quality, including HD voice. Rich communications with messaging and video. And whatever inventive applications you choose to introduce. In other words, VoLTE can provide a superior quality of experience (QoE) for subscribers and give you a competitive edge — particularly when your service operates at its best.

In my last blog[CCE1] , our experts explained why an end-to-end strategy is the key to maintaining peak VoLTE performance. Now we’ll look at how this strategy gets put into practice to optimize real-world service offerings. The information here is based on interviews with Luis Venerio who works with our VoLTE Readiness Services team. And his observations come straight from his experience on VoLTE deployments that serve millions of subscribers.

How signaling spikes affect networks: 3 real-world examples

By: Josee Loudiadis, Director of Network Intelligence, Alcatel-Lucent

Data and signaling growth are usually good news for network operators, since growth often translates into higher revenues. But when growth is averaged over a month or quarter, the daily highs and lows of network activity are smoothed out. And signaling spikes remain hidden within the averages. These spikes can overwhelm available signaling capacity, which impairs the customer experience, as well as the operator’s reputation.

What happens when a spike occurs? Typically, a CPU Overload alarm appears on various mobile nodes. And the Network Operations Center (NOC) immediately starts praying that the burst is short-lived and doesn’t go over maximum peak-rate capacity. Because when that happens, all consumers are denied service access. Then, the process of identifying the source of the problem begins. This can be arduous, because it often involves applications completely out of NOC control. And the issue can’t be resolved easily without solid network analytics that enables engagement with application and device developers.

That’s the reason signaling information is a crucial part of the Alcatel-Lucent Mobile Apps Rankings report and why LTE World 2014 devotes an entire pre-conference day to the topic. It’s also why this blog offers a closer look at how some real-world disruptive signaling spikes got started — and were finally resolved.

January 17, 2005

I received this e-mail today. The answer is that I have not gotten the DVG-1120M to work behind my router. I tried and gave up. AT&T's Gary Morgenstern told me at the time that you couldn't put this device behind the router.

VoIP peering is assisting wireless carriers as well as those of the wired variety.

VoIp Investments

January 16, 2005

Motley Fool did a story on VoIP and it was optimistic as you would expect. No surprises in here just some fairly obvious commentary. Still a good overview of VoIP investments and i am generally a Motley Fool Fan. Here is an excerpt:

 

Although this technology has been around for years, the high-speed Internet connections required for VoIP were not widely available. The long-distance carriers didn't see this coming in the early days, but now it has caught their attention.

Skype Community

January 16, 2005

A number of dating services are exploring adding VoIP to their offerings as it makes perfect sense to allow people to prospective dates to speak with each other and not give out their phone numbers. For dating services, VoIP is just another moneymaker but if you buy into my ideas about us being on the verge of new paradigms in VoIP which I call VoIP 2.0, you will see that VoIP allows a number of totally new business models to emerge.

I read an article today titled Single and Skype?
