Reliance communications launches industry’s first 4G VoLTE enabled fixed wireless phone

By November 11th, 2016 AT 11:01 AM

Reliance communications recently migrated its CDMA subscribers to 4G platform, this included also subscribers who used CDMA based fixed wireless phones (FWP). At the time of upgrade, the company had offered its subscribers a GSM based FWP instrument, but now it has launched a futuristic 4G based VoLTE enabled FWP device, which is an industry first.

The device looks like a regular landline telephone but instead of the traditional copper wire it is connected wirelessly to the Rcom 4G network, which means it can be freely carried to anywhere across the country where Rcom has 4G service. The FWP has an antenna which has dual functionality, it receives the LTE signal as well as emits wi-fi signal thus acting as a router which is capable of connecting to 8 devices simultaneously.

The 4G FWP which is based on Android 5.1 supports Voice over LTE which means calls are made in HD voice quality. It supports SMS and cascading of YouTube to smart TV. The tariff plans ensure that after exhausting the bundled 4G data usage of 2 and 4 GB, the data connectivity will be stopped and users can then subscribe to data addon packs to continue to enjoy data services, thereby eliminating a bill shock.
