Genband participated in the September GSMA backed MultiService Forum (MSF) Voice over LTE (VoLTE) Interoperability Test Event 2011 with its Genband A2 Communications Application Server. Serving the role of VoLTE Telephony Application Server (TAS), the A2 provided Multimedia Telephony (MMTel) services with IMS to LTE mobile devices through 3GPP standard ISC and Ut interfaces. The test event was hosted by MSF and GSMA operator members Vodafone and China Mobile in the Vodafone Centre for Test and Innovation in Dusseldorf and the China Mobile Research Institute Lab in Beijing.
“Genband’s commitment to the VoLTE interoperability event, alongside Vodafone and China Mobile, highlights the significance of the combination of IMS and LTE for the telecommunications industry,” said Kyu-Ou Lee, MSF president, in a statement. “The MSF and GSMA are working together to validate the standards to benefit the vendor and service provider ecosystem.”
