  16. 16. The Path to Revenue Growth Large Investments in LTE Infrastructure Investment Recovery Largely via Broadband Data Plans But Revenues Need to Grow Beyond Data Plans Supplement via VoLTE, RCS, Other Value Added Services 4G/LTE Enables New Models for Video Services VoLTE, RCS, Video, and other VASdriving need for IMS Media Plane Processing in IMSdriving need for MRF 16
  17. 17. VoLTE Use Cases Requiring MRF Most VoLTE / Video pt-to-pt calls do not need MRF If both ends have same codec, then established call pathdoesnt pass through MRF But many VoLTE / Video services do need MRF Basic Network Services Playing a network announcement (basic service) Collecting digits with announcements (IVR) IP-to-IP transcoding (e.g. AMR-WB AMR-NB) Revenue-Generating VAS services Playing a ringback tone Messaging (record and playback) Conferencing Branded advertising And many more. 17

  20. 20. MRF Characteristics in VoLTE End to End IP (No CS Domain Voice) Increases and exposes network bandwidth variability from end terminals directly to MRF (i.e., no CS-IP MGW) Key Aspects of MRF in LTE and non-LTE Deployments IMS-based All-IP voice and video (multiservice MRF) Service continuity with legacy 2G/3G handsets (via IMS GWs) High availability with low latency and jitter (media quality) New services for increased revenues (app-independent MRF reuse) MRF: Essential Resource for VoLTE Supplementary Services Network voice services (Ann, IVR, RBT) Two-way or multi-party (conferencing) Voice and Video quality for IP mobile environment Media recording / Legal Intercept Media transcoding / content adaptation20
  21. 21. VoLTE and Video MRF Challenges 1. High variability in mobile access network 2. Packet loss due to fading 3. Increased delay and echo 4. Increased diversity of protocols and codecs 5. Increasing need for policy controls/enforcement 6. Increasing density and bandwidth needs 7. Coexistence of IPv6 and IPv4 in 4G / LTE 8. Managing QoS and congestion, end-to-end 9. Voice/Video Quality Enhancements in an All-IPnetwork 10. Reusability across diverse IMS applications21
