This IDC study assesses the evolving business and product requirements for VoWiFi technology. It discusses typical deployment models and provides an outlook of where this technology is headed in the future.
"The VoWiFi architecture for voice communication is still in its early stages, and there is certainly too much hype at the moment on its reliability, scalability, and accessibility," said Sathya Atreyam, research manager, Wireless Network Infrastructure, at IDC. "However, a dire need to ensure good voice quality coverage indoors has compelled vendors and MNOs alike to explore the potential of VoWiFi. Furthermore, VoWiFi is seen as a proposition for buying time toward VoLTE rollout."
