Orange to deploy VoLTE, Wi-Fi Calling across Europe

1 Mar 2016

Orange has announced that it is planning to roll out voice-over-LTE (VoLTE) and Wi-Fi Calling across its European footprint. VoLTE technology, which is already available in Romania, will facilitate dramatically reduced connection times (from approximately eight to two seconds) and improved simultaneous use of voice and high speed data, while Wi-Fi Calling will offer customers greatly improved indoor coverage. The services will be activated in Orange’s remaining European operations over the course of 2016 and early 2017.

TeleGeography notes that Orange currently operates in several European markets, including France, Spain, Belgium, Luxembourg, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Moldova and Armenia.
