The analysts forecast the Global Voice Over Long Term Evolution (VoLTE) market to grow
at a CAGR of 300.4 percent over the period 2012-2016.

One of the major growth drivers is the continuous demand for data and voice
capabilities. In order to sustain in a competitive business environment, mobile telecom
operators are striving to provide better services to the mobile subscribers. In this
regard, VoLTE solutions enable the operators to efficiently integrate voice and data, with
high-end quality.

Mobile telecom operators’ voice revenues are heading south, as subscribers
increasingly choose OTT VoIP services such as Skype instead of regular circuit-switched
voice. However, VoLTE can enable the operators to retreat the decreasing voice market
share by offering high end voice quality. VoLTE will provide operators the opportunity to
establish voice and video propositions that the OTT providers simply cannot match with,
the provision of voicemail, roaming, and interconnect. VoLTE will provide broader
connectivity, for instance, through operator services, a user can instantly reach out a
billion of people worldwide, whereas through OTT VoIP a user group can only be connected.
Furthermore, operator controlled feature has several other bundled services – call divert,
voicemail, and then on top of that there’s a whole load of business services as well which
provide benefits such as VPN solutions in the network or short-code dialing between closed
user groups. However, in order to deliver those services more cost effectively and also
compete with the OTT providers on HD voice, the operators need contemplate the option LTE.
During the forecast period, the telecom operators are expected to cash in these
voice-enabled services.

Further, the report states that encouraging the transition of subscribers from
dominating OTT VoIP to VoLTE services
[http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/87ddd4/global_volte ] is a point of concern for
the network operators globally delaying the growth of the VoLTE technology.
