GSMA adopts 'One Voice' solution for voice over LTE

Last year a crowd of telecoms companies said they'd developed the 'One Voice' initiative, which was a technical profile for voice and SMS services on 4G LTE networks.

This week the GSMA says it's adopted the work of the One Voice Initiative, which will now be called Voice over LTE (VoLTE). That means no more Barry Manilow jokes, although many other puns are still possible.

Alex Sinclair, Chief Technology and Strategy Officer at the GSMA, said "The GSMA recognises the importance of a single, industry-wide solution for voice over LTE and by adopting the work of the One Voice Initiative, we will advance the creation of a global, next-generation wireless ecosystem. With the support of the world’s leading players in mobile, VoLTE will generate economies of scale similar to those provided through the ubiquitous availability of GSM-based networks and devices. As mobile operators begin to deploy LTE, it is essential their networks are aligned around one, common standard for voice and messaging services, for the benefit of the mobile industry and consumers alike."
