First LTE-M VoLTE call on European network infrastructure
Swiss company, u-blox has announced that, in conjunction with leading telecom operator Swisscom, it has completed a Voice over LTE (VoLTE) call across a live LTE-M cellular low power wide area network (LPWAN).

“This yet again underlines the traction that u-blox technology is continuing to make within the LPWAN arena, and that we are acknowledged as the go-to technology supplier by the world’s foremost network operators,” states Diego Grassi, Senior Principal Product Strategy, Product Center Cellular at u-blox. “Through VoLTE we can eliminate the need for an additional 2G or 3G connectivity to take care of the voice aspect. Instead everything can be handled solely by the LTE-M network, thereby keeping overall system cost and complexity down.”

“This is an important step forward. Our customers have been waiting for Voice on LTE-M as an important feature for LPWA networks. There are many applications that require low bandwidth, low energy consumption and voice support, for examples emergency phones in remote locations,” says Julian Dömer, Head of IoT at Swisscom. “It also opens up an array of new possibilities and reduces complexity for the many IoT use cases that need voice.”
