VOLTE AND VOWIFI DESCRIPTION:
VoLTE aka Voice over Long Term Evolution is based on IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) network, with a specific profile for control and media planes of voice service. This approach results in delivery of voice just as the data flows within the LTE data bearer, which in turn implies that there is no dependency on legacy circuit switch voice networks to be maintained.
VoWiFi aka Voice over Wi-Fi. The defining feature of this service is that it allows interoperability of a handset between Wi-Fi and cellular service. It is expected to be beneficial to the users who have poor cellular coverage in their homes.
