Two tier one North American operators are responding to their growing subscriber demands for VoLTE services by signing new agreements with Transaction Network Services (TNS) to use its VoLTE Registry solution, the company said.
According to the latest Ericsson Mobility Report, the number of worldwide VoLTE subscriptions is projected to reach 5.4 billion by the end of 2023, up from 617 million in 2017, and will account for around 80 percent of combined LTE and 5G subscriptions.
TNS´ VoLTE Registry makes available a shared registry into which carriers provision the phone numbers of their VoLTE enabled devices, as well as routing information for reaching those devices, over an IMS infrastructure. This information is then shared between operators in a controlled manner allowing discovery of and routing to the VoLTE enabled handsets. TNS´ VoLTE Registry is built on top of its robust and highly scalable Carrier ENUM platform.
