Sicap, the global mobile device management vendor, has complemented its flagship device management centre solution with a VoLTE device entitlement server suitable for all leading mobile operating systems in the market. This new solution will be on show at the 2018 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona and is aimed at enabling operators to enter into the VoLTE mass market saving on deployment costs and testing efforts.

According to statistics provided by the company, a total of 643 operators in 200 countries are providing LTE mobile data services. Of these, only 127 operators in 63 countries offer Voice and Video over LTE services while Voice over WiFi is operational in 33 countries, provided by 57 operators. Currently 1218 different types of mobile device models provide support for this technology, according to the GSMA. 

The lack of automated device configuration has been a hindrance as without it, the handsets cannot connect correctly to the operators’ VoLTE services. Sicap’s VoLTE device entitlement server introduces a device and subscriber authentication, device detection and configuration functionality. It detects the VoLTE handset models in the network in real-time and automatically configures them over the air with the correct VoLTE settings. 

Magnus Moller-Petersen, EVP sales and marketing at Sicap said: “Sicap’s automatic VoLTE device configuration removes the last deployment bottleneck, radically reducing time-to-market and the implementation and testing costs”. 

“It is about time to bring the amazing VoLTE user-experience to the attention of all mobile users and let operators finally cash into the investments made on the technology.” 

Other Sicap solutions such as AI based churn prediction, device and SIM management, enterprise mobility management, TargetMe, the customer insight and engagement solution and Sicap’s mobile security solutions including Equipment Identity Register (EIR) and Safer, the homeland security enabler will also be demonstrated at Sicap’s booth at Stand 7K61 in Hall 7 during the exhibition.
