Smart Wi-Fi + VoLTE = Quick Deployment

Yesterday, Kineto made two announcements:

We have added IMS-based voice and messaging capabilities compatible with the GSMA’s VoLTE initiative to the Smart Wi-Fi smartphone client.

To make our solution quickly ready for deployment, we have developed a joint solution with Taqua® LLC., a leading supplier of convergence switching and small cell deployment solutions, that enables mobile operators to include Wi-Fi as part of their VoLTE deployment strategy.

The industry is moving towards voice over LTE solutions, and our technology can get them there more quickly.

Operators can add support for the GSMA’s IMS-based voice and messaging profile (IR.92) to Kineto's Smart Wi-Fi client and instantly provide coverage over existing Wi-Fi access points. With VoLTE support and leveraging Taqua’s IMS core network solution suite in the Smart Wi-Fi client, ordinary Wi-Fi access points become LTE small cells. This brings indoor coverage and capacity to macro LTE network deployments and adds critical network coverage and capacity in the exact locations subscribers spend most their time -- in their homes and offices.

With CTIA Wireless in New Orleans this week, there will be lots of announcements and chatter about IMS and LTE. We know the Kineto Smart Wi-Fi for VoLTE solution can assist operators in quickly becoming front-runners is providing solutions instead watching from the sidelines to see what their competitors will do.
