As new technologies continue to advance networks, the transition to and uptake of VoLTE is rapidly accelerating. In 2016, the number of commercial VoLTE networks reached 102. This represents a significant increase in the use of 4G networks as the mainstream channel for data communications, indicating that operators are commercially motivated towards VoLTE to increase network utilization and reduce costs. Although 4G network development was slow in the earlier part of the decade, 2016 saw a dramatic increase in its uptake and establishment. In 2016 alone, 57 new commercial VoLTE networks were launched, exceeding the total for the previous four years combined. According to statistics and research from GSMA, the total number of VoLTE commercial networks reached 102 in January 2017 and the total number of global VoLTE users reached 300 million…
