At the same time, the VoLTE handover between LTE and 2G/3G networks is also available. The service is not yet commercially available as not enough smartphones with VoLTE technology are available yet. The VoLTE technology is currently in use by O2 Germany's network division employees to trial and test the service before its commercial launch.
