Dallas, Texas 05/23/2014 (FINANCIALSTRENDS) – Recently both AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) and Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE:VZ) had announced that they were launching voice calls over their LTE networks. Now, T-Mobile US Inc. (NYSE:TMUS) has announced that it is also launching a similar service.
The chief technology officer, Neville Ray released a statement congratulating his team on the same. According to him, this technology will benefit TMUS users who have Galaxy Light, Galaxy Note 3 and G Flex devices. As per him, the company was working on a high end version of the service which they will launch to a higher number of consumers throughout 2014.
Much better clarity in voice calls
As per Neville, the company’s technology will provide calls on the same cables and network used for data. This will ensure that the user will be able to setup calls much faster and the data transfer speeds during the call will be much higher. This technology also has the ability to support high definition audio based services.
These services will use VoIP technology instead of the circuit based technology. This will help the user to continue to be on the faster LTE network even during the call. The company’s technicians are looking at ways to navigate the different layers of radio communication employed by them to ensure smooth flow of data and voice.
According to Neville, TMUS is the first company to use the eSRVCC service in the US market. This technology ensures that the call will continue even if the user moves from a LTE are to a normal 4G or 2G area. This technology cannot be availed in current iPhone models. However with the advent of iOS8, the next versions of the phone will be able to support these services.
