Angola’s Unitel tests VoLTE ahead of commercial launch in Q1

29 Jan 2016

BiztechAfrica reports that Angolan cellco Unitel has successfully completed the first voice-over-LTE (VoLTE) call on its network, supporting so-called ‘SRVCC’ (i.e. service without interruption) whereby a 4G call is handed off to 2G and 3G networks seamlessly, without dropping out. The commercial launch of VoLTE, which will be supported by its popular ‘Laranja’ branded handsets, is planned for the first quarter of 2016.
