Deutsche Telekom tests Voice over New Radio with 5G in Merseburg

Tuesday 28 December 2021 | 09:47 CET | News
Deutsche Telekom said it is testing Voice over New Radio (VoNR) with 5G in Merseburg in Saxony-Anhalt. VoNR should provide a better quality of calls than its predecessor, Voice over LTE, as well as cut call set-up time and avoid having to switch the voice connection automatically back to LTE when data is being exchanged in parallel via 5G. Telekom is using different voice samples in different languages to measure voice quality in the test area in Merseburg and is also deploying vehicles to measure the quality of 5G in the test area.
