ZTE Corporation, a leading global provider of telecommunications equipment and network solutions, today launched its zVOA (ZTE Voice & Video over Any-access) solution to enable operators to deploy a unified control network for voice, video and multimedia services over any existing mobile and fixed access network infrastructure.

With the introduction of LTE and WiMAX network technologies, widespread deployment of broadband access technologies such as HSPA+ and Wi-Fi, and the increasing popularity of multi-mode smart phones, consumers have come to expect a continuous and consistent service experience in spite of different broadband access points. IMS-based VoIP and multimedia services are fast becoming a new area of growth for network operators. However achieving cost-efficiency in their networks remains a challenge for many.

ZTE's zVOA solution addresses these issues to utilize on existing traditional voice network, broadband pipe and end-user resources to offer more multimedia services. The solution is low cost, easy to maintain and easily upgraded. This allows network operators to smoothly deploy VoLTE, VOBB and multimedia networks, and maintain their competitive edge by offering more services to end users.

Key to the zVOA solution is the introduction of the iCX (intelligent Controller eXtensive) and iMG (integrative Media Gateway) products. The iCX product integrates standard mobile and fixed softswitches, and IMS call control elements, while the iMG product incorporates media functions with integrated voice, video and other content types.

The solution employs state of the art virtualization technology and Cloud Computing technology on ZTE's advanced ETCA hardware platform and software middleware to enable flexible deployment and maximize the processing capabilities.

The solution fully complies with a variety of standard interfaces of circuit switched (CS) elements and IMS elements, and can integrate all standard softswitches and IMS functions onto one shelf or even on one single board, allowing for a much smooth expansion process.

"The zVOA solution is an ideal way to help operators expand markets with freedom and have voice & video anytime anywhere, using any fixed or mobile access," said Liu Jianye, Chief Architect of ZTE Core Network Products.

"In meeting the future development trend and demands of core networks, the zVOA solution fully inherits the functions of traditional voice networks, while at the same time offering carrier-grade VoIP and multimedia services over both legacy phones and new smart phones based on standard IMS architecture such as MMTel, converged Centrex, converged one number, DRVCC and SRVCC."
