Voice Over LTE (VoLTE) Troubleshooting and Performance Workshop

VoLTE, standardized by the GSM Association (GSMA), has gained worldwide acceptance with deployments by operators worldwide, because it offers both data traffic and voice traffic on the same network.

This workshop covers all aspects of VoLTE functionality and performance and focuses on performance improvements and troubleshooting, through detailed analysis of case studies.

This workshop covers the initial LTE attach, IMS registration, and end-to-end procedure of a VoLTE call setup, followed by in-call performance and troubleshooting. IMS re-registration and IMS de-registration are then explained. VoLTE Supplementary Services and VoLTE-related RAN features are also discussed. Supporting call flows and log analysis are covered for all scenarios. VoLTE Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and LTE performance considerations are introduced and explained as well.

The workshop also focuses on the concepts and procedures of intra-LTE and inter-RAT handover (Single Radio Voice Call Continuity, SRVCC) during a VoLTE call, in addition to call drop analysis and VoLTE emergency calls. This experiential workshop uses log files for all cases and LTE case studies with impact on VoLTE performance are woven throughout the course.
