Demand for quality over voice services in the US

The benefit of VoLTE is that the quality of the call is better than 2G and 3G connections and also more data can be transferred over 4G as compared to 2G and 3G. Traditionally, voice networks transmit voice calls using 8 Kbps codec, but VoLTE transmits voice calls using 13 Kbps codec. This results in clearer phone calls compared with a typical cellular phone call.

Jujhar Singh, a lead M2M and connected devices research analyst at Technavio, says, "Fast, more reliable, and richer services have the potential to encourage subscribers to switch to VoLTE. The high-value mobile subscribers are ready and willing to swap providers to avail the desired services. Being the first fully packet-based radio technology, LTE (News - Alert) provides fast access rates with low latency, enhancing the user experience."

Increasing demand for mobile UC

There is an increasing demand from mobile enterprises for mobile and cloud unified communication (UC) solutions because of their faster network speeds. Mobile network operators fulfill the demand by delivering UC applications via LTE and provides the end-users a better user experience by improving the LTE network.

"VoLTE can be unified with enterprise PBX (News - Alert) systems. This feature is of relevance to businesses. This integration enables a UC experience with corporate presence, messaging, and video and allows end-users to experience better quality of services at an optimum price. Also, VoLTE requires advanced smartphones and timely software updates," adds Jujhar.

Growing small and medium businesses in the US

Small and medium businesses are growing across the US. This segment of overall US enterprises accounted for more than 50% of the US revenue in 2016. In 2016, there were more than 30 million small and medium businesses in the US. Since 1970, close to 60% of the US job vacancies originate from the small and medium business sector.

SMBs get the maximum gains from new VoIP services that are offered by the operators. SMBs outsource their communications requirements that save them from clunky, on-site PBX equipment and reduce the cost by cutting the monthly phone bills. The proliferation of UC has also helped smaller companies improve productivity. Operators have been delivering converged voice and data services to SMBs.
