Jazz has successfully tested its VoLTE technology, a press statement claimed.
Jazz carried out this test amalgamating with its partners Huawei and Nokia. According to the press statement, the VoLTE technology will soon be available to Jazz users.
Pakistan is the second largest market for this VEON subsidiary. Jazz took the Pakistani market by storm when it announced a merger with another telecommunication brand Warid. In the aftermath of the merger, the company has as much as 50 million subscribers. And now it is all set to shake the local market even further.
Khalid Shehzad, Chief Technology Officer – Jazz, said,“Providing impeccable voice and data experience to Jazz customers is our continuous endeavor and we are humbled to be the first in Pakistan to conduct successful VoLTE trial using the latest technology. Once we move towards the commercial launch, VoLTE shall enable our valuable customers to enjoy premium voice services with more than 80% reduction in call setup time, and on top of that it can cherish the true essence of data session during call”.
