SUMA móvil to launch its VoLTE service on JSC Ingenium technology
- SUMA móvil bets on VoLTE/IMS to modernise its technological platform offer for MVNOs.
- The company anticipates the imminent switch-off of legacy networks – 2G and 3G – and thus becomes the first platform for MVNOs to offer its partner brands voice over LTE.
According to Juan Carlos Buitrago, SUMA‘s Country Manager in Colombia, “the incorporation of VoLTE will allow all partner brands to offer an integrated voice service regardless of 3G, 4G or 5G access technology, significantly improving the user experience with 10 times faster connection times, more stable and better-quality HD voice calls, even in environments with a lot of interference, as well as lower battery consumption”.
SUMA móvil chose the technology of the parent group, led by JSC Ingenium, for the deployment of its Core IMS, mainly because of its strong commitment to containerised cloud technologies and the rapid experience it has gained worldwide, which will allow, in a first phase, to offer VoLTE services, and in the near future, to be ready to also offer VoWiFi -Voice over Wifi- and VoNR – Voice Over New Radio- services, or in other words, native calls in 5G. This solution will go a step further and further improve the user experience for end subscribers, who will be able to start a call in VoLTE and continue it over a WiFi network in an area without mobile coverage, in VoWiFi, and vice versa, without affecting the call quality, without interruptions or interference.
