Will VoLTE (Voice over LTE) Degrade Your Network Performance?

According to PCMagazine, "VoLTE is the future, and most global carriers will be going there over the next two years... It will be a carrier requirement.."

As VoLTE and other real-time mobile services are broadly adopted, the average packet size will drop and packet rates will increase in mobile networks. Higher packet rates require more processing capability from core network equipment. This additional processing load could fundamentally shift the planning assumptions that many operators have used for forecasting network capacity requirements. Unplanned capacity expansion can strain operator profitability.

Stoke recently completed two mobile traffic analyses that examine the trend towards smaller packet sizes, its drivers, and the importance of packets rates in capacity planning and vendor evaluation.
