Then what it actually stands for and what are the advantages..?
- LTE stands for "Long Term Evolution".
- VoLTE stands for "Voice Over LTE".
VoLTE how to spell..?
Spell the letter V and o separately. it is V-o-LTE
4G is fourth generation mobile technology likely we call it as LTE. It is the first step forward to achieve true 4G Technology.we can get high data rate in both download link and up link.this will require few hundred milliseconds to connect to the network.
I think everyone aware of 2G , 3G and 4G Network technologies.
actually 2G network developed for voice calls only later Packet Switching adopted to 2G Network in the form of GPRS (General Packet Radio Service) to access mobile data.we can observe G near signal strength it indicates slowest speed of internet data transfer.Later EDGE (Enhanced Data for GSM Evolution) replaced the GPRS technology.Typically EDGE provides a data rate of upto 1 Mbit/s.This Technology also somewhere lies between 2G and 3G. Those who call GPRS as 2.5G they refer EDGE as 2.75G
Basically 2G and 3G networks are Hybrid of Circuit Switching and Packet Switching data network technologies. 4G LTE is Packet Switching only.Then what makes the difference between "Circuit-Switched Network " and "Packet-Switched Network".
Circuit-Switched Network :
In Circuit switching if two people are communicating over voice call, a line with particular amount of Bandwidth allocated for that call.this will exist until call ends.
In below pic the red color line indicates the circuit switched
Packet-Switched Network :
In Packet Switched network,Message is divided into piece of packets and sends them individually.Packet switched network is not like Circuit Switched, a particular amount of bandwidth reserved to make a call.this raw data divided into packets and it will delivers to the End User.
"Packet Switched Network" less reliable than the "Circuit-Switched Network". Here is the reason
For example if your are communicating with others over voice calling using 4G LTE mobile If you say "Hi Hello" it likely divided into two packets not exactly just assume the first one "Hi" and other one "Hello". If there is any delay in second packet transmission the caller could receive only "Hi".after some time the End-user will receive "Hello" message i.e., second packet data.See the below diagram for better understanding.
After Reading all these one question should arise in your mind.Here we go
How Voice calls working in 4G LTE ?
Originally LTE was completely IP Cellular System for carrying Data.if you are making a call from LTE Network,the Operators would be able carry the voice either by reverting to 2G/3G technologies.
VoLTE is a HD voice calling Service over 4G LTE rather than 2G/3G network present we are using.
By using VoLTE we can make calls more faster than 2G/3G Connections.It has added advantages of Security and Quality of services.
What are the Benfits to the user using VoLTE :
- HD Voice calls over 4G LTE
- Better Battery Life
- faster Call Setup
- Increased the Functionality of VoIP
How to Find which device VoLTE Support ?
first turn on mobile data in your smart phone,if VoLTE appears at the top of the signal strength the device is VoLTE support.Otherwise it will shows the alphabets like G,E or 2G,3G,4G.
|VoLTE enabled Smartphone Reliance Jio Network|
As I understand that VoLTE is Pure Software limition it's not a Hardware part.However the updation of 4G LTE Network to VoLTE is more Complicated because it's not only Voice over LTE it also includes VoIP.Key Note to all 4G Smart Phone users : Jio SIM Cards available to all 4G Smart Phone users from Sep 5th.to get a Jio sim card Download MyJio App from Play store or App Store and click on Get MyJio SIM and follow the Instructions.If get Jio SIM option not present don't Worry just show your 4G Mobile while taking SIM Card.
Reliance Jio is the only Network provider offering True 4G services in India and other Networks like Airtel,Vodafone,Idea,Tata Docomo have 2g,3G also.Jio uses VoLTE for voice calls
