VoIP Now Supports VoLTE to Build up Reliability for VoIP-based Phone Systems

SAN DIEGO, CA: In a move to robust the reliability and failover mechanisms for VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol)-based phone systems, Mushroom Networks, provider of Broadband Bonding technology, has stated that VoIP Armor now supports Voice over LTE (VoLTE).

Available as a standalone appliance as well as crafted into Mushroom Network’s flagship Truffle Broadband Bonding solutions, VoIP Armor is a compact appliance that can create a bonded tunnel from the office to the cloud, optimized for VoIP. It solves the issues of inconsistent voice quality of VoIP calls by creating an adaptive self-healing IP tunnel that protects against any negative network conditions. It also enhances the voice quality and reliability of calls and strengthens simultaneous call capacity due to the increased WAN bandwidth of the bonded Internet lines.

VoLTE is a data-only technology that carries voice calls over the new Long Term Evolution (LTE) data network, offering better quality voice calls, and more network efficiency. It also enables customers to use voice and data simultaneously. With the addition of VoLTE, businesses now have unparalleled reliability for their VoIP-based systems and they no longer have to be dependent only on wired transport technologies, like DSL, cable, fibre and MPLS.

Commenting on the advantages of the new added service, Cahit Akin, CEO, Mushroom Networks, says, “A phone call will not be disrupted- even during wired line failures-because the VoIP traffic will seamlessly follow the LTE connection without dropping the call.”
