VoLTE Update October 2020 – Global Status

VoLTE Update October 2020

GSA has identified a total of 273 operators that are investing in VoLTE in 120 countries/territories), including 224 operators with commercially launched VoLTE-HD voice service in 104 countries/territories.

Since the last report in March 2020, launches have been announced or identified by GSA in the following countries/territories for the first time: Latvia, Tokelau and Gibraltar.

At least 19 other operators are known to be deploying VoLTE and 30 other operators are known to be planning VoLTE or are testing/trialling the technology.VoLTE devices

There are 2983 devices in GSA’s GAMBoD database which support VoLTE technology, of which just over 82% are phones. By end September 2020, GSA had identified 81 commercially launched 5G devices supporting VoLTE (and another 42 pre-commercial 5G devices announced with VoLTE support).

There continues to be an increase in the proportion of non-phone VoLTE-capable devices such as routers and modules. GSA has identified 319 modules and 73 routers/CPE devices that support VoLTE. Other types of device which support VoLTE include asset trackers, fixed-wireless terminals (VoLTE-enabled wireless desktop phones), cameras, Mifi/hotspots, tablet PCs, femtocells, smart watches and USB modems. The total count of devices supporting VoLTE is 360 higher than in March 2020 (a rise of 14% in six months).

Further research

The deployment of VoLTE and the growth in the number of supporting devices is growing rapidly and GSA will continue to track developments. We welcome input to the research programme: if you have information you think should be included in the next edition of this report, please contact research@gsacom.com.

A full list of all VoLTE operators is available in the Member/Associate Report.

A full list of VoLTE capable devices is available in the GSA GAMBoD database; access for GSA Members companies and Associates.
