Description:

With LTE nationwide coverage a near-reality in some advanced markets, LTE-Only devices could provide benefits for both operators and consumers. Few operators have already launched LTE-Only devices. Verizon is one of the first to have done so with a digital camera and more recently a tablet. First LTE-Only handsets for instance should arrive on the market in 2014-2015. This insight presents the state of deployment of this technology, analyses the drivers and hurdles related to VoLTE and presents the likely timetable for VoLTE commercial launch in the different geographical areas.
