Telefonica Germany adds Enhanced Voice Services to LTE network

Thursday 23 August 2018 | 15:12 CET | News
Telefonica Germany said it has successfully integrated the voice standard Enhanced Voice Services (EVS) into its national LTE network. EVS builds on the existing Adaptive Multi-Rate Wideband (AMR-WB) standard and enables O2 customers to make calls in full-HD voice quality at a frequency range up to 16,000 Hz, compared to 7,000 Hz previously. The EVS standard also ensures clearer, more natural conversations by suppressing background noise and significantly improving the sound image.
