Verizon voice and video calling to move to 4G with the service
Verizon Wireless is planning to launch a new feature Voice Over LTE (VoLTE) on its recently launched 4G LTE network that will allow users to make voice calls and access data simultaneously.
VoLTE is expected to improve voice and video quality. CNN reported that Verizon’s VoLTE would boost call quality and also handle native video chat.
In the absence of LTE, CDMA will be used for both voice and data.
Verizon Wireless executive director for ecosystem development Brian Higgins has said that the company will be offering voice over LTE service next year.
Verizon Wireless launched its LTE network in December and is expected to start selling smartphones that use the network soon.
Verizon is reportedly planning to demonstrate the service next week at the Mobile World Congress tradeshow in Barcelona.
Pricing of the product is not known.
