Trai Prescribes QOS Parameters for 3G Voice Calls
The Indian telecom regulator, Trai has issued the regulations to the Standards of Quality of Service (QoS) parameters for 3G voice calls. Trai has amended the existing Standards of QoS of Basic Telephone Service (wireline) and Cellular Mobile Telephone Service Regulations, 2009 dated March 20, 2009. These parameters were prescribed keeping in view the 2G networks deployed by the service providers, said Trai. Since the service providers are also providing 3G services currently, the authority is of the view that for voice service provided by the 3G networks the existing network related QoS parameters shall suffice, except that the nomenclature for some of the terms used in the existing regulations and the measurement methodologies need to be amended.
