Etisalat completes voice-over-WiFi trial

21 May 2015

Etisalat of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has announced the completion of trials of voice-over-WiFi (VoWiFi), a technology which the telco says will help it boost the indoor coverage of its mobile network. The system, which was trialled in conjunction with Chinese vendor Huawei, enables users to make voice calls using their home WiFi network or a public hotspot, thereby improving coverage in some indoor areas. The telco has made no announcement on when it expects VoWiFi to go live on its network.
