What is Voice over Wi-Fi (VoWiFi)?

Voice over Wi-Fi (VoWiFi) is a term typically employed to describe the delivery of commercial telephony services using Voice over IP (VoIP) technologies from mobile devices connected across Wi-Fi. This is typically counter to alternatives, predominantly Voice over LTE (VoLTE), in which a mobile network operator’s (MNO’s) licensed spectrum (i.e. 4G LTE) is used to carry packetized voice. Broadly speaking, VoWiFi terminology is assigned to all core IMS services accessed from unlicensed spectrum and across untrusted access infrastructures, such as public Wi-Fi access points. VoWiFi is used synonymously to describe the GSMAs permanent reference document IR.51: IMS Profile for Voice, Video and SMS over untrusted Wi-Fi access.

The steps to VoLTE and VoWiFi

VoLTE Mobile Infrastructure Voice over Wi-Fi (VoWiFi)

Although the benefits of Voice over Wi-Fi are well known, making the first step towards the widescale deployment of packet voice technologies has proven to be problematic. Complexity, feature parity and cost have all diminished the fervor around early propositoons and now the reality of also requiring VoWiFi for offoad and coverage purposes is further stifling progress. Only Metaswitch has the complete solution.

Voice over Wi-Fi Strategies white paper

NFV (Network Functions Virtualization) White papers Voice over Wi-Fi (VoWiFi)

This white paper describes how fixed, mobile and converged services providers can leverage Voice over Wi-Fi as a critical part of their mobility strategy. Native dialer and OTT app approaches are described based on the desired user experience, spectrum assets and overall business strategy. There are clear benefits for the user and the service provider, making VoWiFi a must have in any service provider portfolio. Metaswitch Cloud Native solution accelerates the path to VoWiFi, which increases agility and lowers deployment and operational costs compared to traditional IMS solutions without NFV platforms.
