Enjoy video calls with your smartphone to Movistar Home thanks to ViLTE technology


To do group work, to see grandpa, to give a pilates class… one of the things that the pandemic has brought us has been the use of video calls. They have served to keep people connected even from a distance. If we stop to analyze the situation, isn’t it surprising that through a screen we can connect from Spain with someone who is in the other corner of the planet?

The landline phone has lost importance in most homes, but new times bring substitutes like Movistar Homewhich allows you to make calls, video calls, listen to music or control Movistar+, among many other things.

We have had other technological advances in the home besides the landline phone.

If the connection did not arrive in your room, you had to move around the house to find the best WiFi coverage, but now there is the Smart Wifi Amplifier or the Smart WiFi 6 Amplifier that improves connectivity and speed so that you have a connection in any corner of the world. home.

New technology at the service of households

As the technological age develops, society has new needs. The pandemic has shown us that connectivity is as necessary as being connected to the rest of society. And it is that, worth the redundancy, good connectivity helps us to have a good connection with our circle of people.

That is why Telefónica has opted for a development of ViLTE and VoLTE technology. This refers to Video over LTE (ViLTE) and Voice over LTE (VoLTE). LTE (Long Term Evolution) technology is a technology that allows high bit rates with low latency, is cheap and easily accessible to operators because they only use packet switching. It is intended to avoid fragmentation by type of duplication. It is a network that has the capacity to carry voice, video and data, which is called an All IP network.

In the globalized world we live in Communications are a daily need of people. Companies work to facilitate connectivity for their customers by continuously innovating ways to make their day to day life easier.

What is ViLTE and VoLTE technology and what is it for?

Video over LTE is a feature that operators are developing to optimize the connection and customer devices. Companies want to replace communications based on circuit switching to move to an all IP world, in which conversations take place over the Internet. This technology allows the user to make video calls between terminals without the need for any extra application.

The VoLTE calls are calls on 4G with an improvement in the mobile network with respect to the GSM or UMTS networks used before.

Voice over LTE offers different advantages included in this post, although here we are going to review the main ones. The customer who has a device with this type of technology can benefit from a higher sound quality, with clearer calls and better definition even in noisy environments. You also have the ability to browse 4G while on a call. The connection has been streamlined, achieving almost immediacy between the time of dialing the number and the contact.

The Movistar Home device allows you to make a call to any VoLTE terminal with ViLTE activated dialing with the voice, as we have previously seen. But this is not the only thing it can do, it also allows you to make video calls between Movistar Home devices. In this way, ViLTE video calls can be established between a Movistar Home device and a VoLTE phone with ViLTE technology.

The requirement to make this type of video calls is that the smartphone is from Movistar with VoLTE and must have ViLTE technology activated. Some of those devices that support video calls with Movistar Home are:
