What is VoLTE and how can it improve lift safety?

VoLTE stands for Voice over LTE, essentially voice calling over the data channel. All over Europe 4G connections are expanding. For many years, most people are used to using the 4G network for accessing the internet, watching TV and communicating on social media. However, did you know that you don’t actually make any calls over this channel? Phones will revert back to older networks such as 2G and 3G to perform this functionality. That's why we developed the SafeLine 4G VoLTE products. With SafeLine’s 4G VoLTE products, you can make use of all the available bandwidths – while also getting a better quality of call. SafeLine offers 4G VoLTE either directly integrated into the product, or as a stand-alone board for retrofitting into your existing SafeLine unit.

1981
1G

Analogue telecommunication standards. Although a revolutionary technology at the time, 1G suffered major drawbacks like low voice quality caused by bad coverage (static noise and background crackling). Download speed over 1G was also incredibly slow and only reached around 2.4kbps.

1991
2G (GSM)

2G provided significant mobile talk advancements, introducing encrypted calls. 2G also improved sound quality, reducing static and crackling noises while talking. 2G’s download speeds were also significantly faster (but still incredibly slow by today’s standards) than 1G, averaging at about 0.2 Mbps during its lifetime. 

 

2000
3G

Voice calls and internet access. Increased data transfer capabilities (4x faster) and a separate voice channel. It takes around seven seconds to connect a call using the 3G network. Declining in use around the world in favour of the 4G network. 

 

2011/2012
4G

HD mobile TV, streaming and gaming. Data transferring speeds ranging from 21 Mbps to 1 gigabit. Still using the same voice channel as 3G. 

 

2018
4G VoLTE

Voice and faster data over the same channel. It connects the users only in a second if both users are on the VoLTE network. VoLTE uses 4G data channel for voice communication. It targets both internet data and voice calling without affecting each other. 

 

2020
5G

Introduced in 2020, but only readily available in a few select locations. Super-fast data for streaming. 5G will use the current network infrastructure called IMS, which is already used today to deliver VoLTE. Calling over 5G will basically be calling over VoLTE.
