VoLGA Forum

Overview: The Voice over LTE via Generic Access (VoLGA) Forum was formed in 2009 by a group of companies in the wireless industry to define a set of specifications for enabling delivery of voice services over 3GPP Long Term Evolution (LTE) access networks based on the current 3GPP Generic Access Network (GAN) standard. VoLGA's mission was to promote the widespread adoption of VoLGA technology. The group sought to enable mobile operators to deliver voice and messaging services over upcoming LTE radio access networks using the same core networks they used to support voice services on 2G/GSM and 3G/UMTS radio access networks. The forum members included Alcatel-Lucent, Deutsche Telekom, Huawei, HTC Corporation, LG Electronics, Motorola, Nortel, Sonus Networks, Samsung, Starent Networks, and ZTE. The group developed and published a set of open specifications, to be used by vendors and operators of wireless communications systems and applications to develop and deploy interoperable solutions. *Inactive since 2010
